1. The "Relaxing In A Wedding Dress" Pose
Who could forget this iconic image from "The One With the Wedding Dresses" where Monica, Phoebe, and Rachel all chill out on the couch wearing different dresses? It's such a memorable moment from the series that it's a must-do with your bestie.
Pull out white dresses from your closet that could pass as wedding gowns, or head to a thrift store for some vintage ones. Whoever is Monica can complete their look with a white veil ($5, amazon.com). Grab some beer and popcorn from the kitchen, and set up your camera on a self-timer. While snacking and chilling on the couch, your camera will capture some super cute plandids.
2. The "'80s Prom" Pose
Since Monica and Rachel were high school besties, we got some great flashbacks throughout the show. One of the more memorable moments was from their '80s prom. Find some vintage dresses with puffy sleeves to recreate your very own throwback prom night photos in front of a staircase. Use a vintage camera app for your phone to make your photos look even more groovy.
3. The "Central Perk Sippin'" Pose
If they're not in their apartment, these two were most likely hanging out at Central Perk. It's not hard to recreate your very own coffee shop hangout at home. Simply get some large coffee mugs ($19, kohls.com) in vibrant colors, and make your couch look as comfy as possible with a few orange throw pillows ($70, oka.com). Once the scene has been set, snap some sippin' selfies.
4. The "Competition For The Apartment" Pose
The apartment switch with Chandler and Joey was a real test for Monica and Rachel. This is one of those scenes that everyone remembers, so you need to recreate it with your bestie.
Fill out the scene with a whiteboard ($26, staples.com) and Post-it notes ($9, staples.com). Then, channel that competitive spirit with some energetic pics. You could even get a boomerang of you both realizing you lost, because you couldn't remember Chandler's job.
5. The "Sitting Around The Table Talking" Pose
If you stopped by Monica and Rachel's apartment when they both lived there, you might find them sitting around the kitchen table, chatting. This is where they could vent about their workday or give each other relationship advice. You also love just chatting with your BFF, so recreate this cute moment by sitting around the table with some magazines and laughs.
5. The "Bestie Hug" Pose
There were so many sweet moments that ended with a bestie hug between these two. Get yourself a Monica and Rachel hug snap by setting up your self-timer or taking a video. The cozier the hug, the better the pic.
6. The "Answering The Door" Pose
Other than the Central Perk couch, the most iconic set piece from the show was the door to Monica's apartment. Make your front door look just like theirs with a yellow frame ($18, urbanoutfitters.com). Once that's taken care of, you can capture a pic of you two "answering the door" together.
7. The "Thanksgiving Throwback" Pose
Friends is known for its Thanksgiving episodes, so you can't go wrong with a pose giving a nod to any them. One of the greatest of all time, though, is the flashback episode — "The One With All the Thanksgivings" — where we got to see Monica and Rachel celebrating the holiday in high school. It's a real #throwback moment.
Since you and your bestie have been friends for so long, it's time to share a little throwback moment of your own. Find a photo from one of your first Friendsgivings together, and recreate it. Then, post images for your followers to switch back and forth to see.
