So, you’ve done the impossible and not only found your soulmate - you’ve healed your inner wounds, learned how to navigate conflict, opened your heart to love - resulting in the acquisition of a partner you get to share love and life with!
OR, you’ve successfully tricked another human into proposing marriage to you. Either way, congratulations, the outcome is an engagement! It's such an exciting time. You’ve picked Austin, Texas as your bachelor or bachelorette weekend destination (great choice), and to top it off, you’ve made the smartest decision of your whole life up to this point by booking going to...
f...illing out the quote page, reserving tickets for your group, paying your deposit, and now you have the Premier Party Disco Cruise to look forward to so your favorite crew can revel in your happiness together on a party barge on Lake Travis. This means your posse just gets to show up at Anderson Mill Marina, bring your alcohol of choice plus something to snack on, and party down while we take care of EVERYTHING else. (By everything we mean water, ice, coolers, captains, DJs, photographers, lily pads)
Honestly, we’re impressed and we want you to know that.
Now, with that out of the way, it’s time for the fun part. What. Will. You. Wear.
The dictionary defines “fashion” as a “popular trend, especially in styles of dress and ornament or manners of behavior”. This is true in a dry, factual way but this description resonates more for us…
”Fashion is a state of mind. A spirit, an extension of one’s self. Fashion talks, it can be an understated whisper, a high-energy scream or an all knowing wink and a smile. Most of all fashion is about being comfortable with yourself, translating self-esteem into a personal style.” CYNTHIA DURCANIN
This is poetic, no? We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, and you may wonder why we care so much about this topic, being that we only run an incredibly popular party barge company with stellar reviews and we aren’t experts in this arena. Or are we?
As our business has evolved over the years, one of the things we've grown to look forward to now is the humor, unique and individual style, and creative spirit of each group we encounter as we greet our parties boarding the boat. We notice that the more people let loose, get silly, dress up, and coordinating on themes multiplies the fun exponentially. To help jump start your exploration into finding a fashion theme that excites and perfectly fits you and your crew- we want to share a few of our favorite ideas from last year.
Our most popular and all-time favorite, melding together DISCO sparkle with cowgirl flare. Think fringe, loads of sparkles and western accents. How can you go wrong?! We predict this continuing to be a huge trend for 2023 and we aren’t mad about it.
We are at sea! This is obvious, it’s classic, it’s timeless, and it's wonderful. Captain or sailor hats, anchors, solid colors like red, blue, white and black combined with stripes.
SO much yes for this one. Retro details, lots of sparkle, colorful sunglasses, wild accessories!
The crazier, the better. Strong correlation between having a more fun personality at a party and wearing a wig.
Love the trend of getting these personalized with the groom or brides' face. Bonus points if it’s a mugshot or a funny childhood photo being used.

The biggest thing we want you to remember is to give yourself permission to get silly, get weird, and have FUN. We wanna see you forget about everything for the four hours we have you on our party barge and play with your friends.
