Mama June is ready to do some “bachelorettin’.”

In a sneak peek from TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, matriarch June Shannon, 33, and her girlfriends head to Wild Bill’s in Atlanta for a night of drinking, dancing, flirting and all-around partying to celebrate her commitment ceremony.

Sporting a wedding veil, a “Mrs. Sugar Bear” T-shirt and at times a candy necklace and a pink, feather boa, the reality star throws back shots and shows off some serious dance moves.

“Once I get my body in motion, I mean, there’s pretty much, like, no, like, stopping … If it’s a good beat then it just kinda, like, overtakes me,” she says.

Elsewhere, the groom-to-be’s pal Doode – who has been married for four and a half years – is busy giving advice to his friend Sugar Bear, 41, as they sit around a burning barrel.

“The advice I can give Sugar Bear is to just keep Mama happy … If she ain’t happy, nobody’s happy,” he says with a laugh.

And for his part, Sugar Bear is ready to say “I do” to his bride-to-be. “I wanna get committed,” he says. “I want to settle down now. I’ve been a renegade for a while.”

In May, Mama June and Sugar Bear exchanged vows in a backyard ceremony, which they’ve been planning on the current season of the show.

“Never settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right,” June said at the time. “If a guy doesn’t love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea.”

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
