If you’re a Parks and Recreation fan, you’ll already know about Galentine’s Day. It was made famous by character Leslie Knope and is typically celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day.
It’s all about celebrating the most important girls in your life – so round up your bridesmaids and treat them to one of these fabulous ideas to show them how much they mean to you. Those bridesmaid duties will be much easier to carry out when they can feel the love!
