My Bachelorette Party!

This is the start of me finally posting about all of my fun wedding festivities that occurred! Today I will write about my bachelorette party, and later I will write about our rehearsal dinner, then our wedding, and finally our honeymoon! (I know, about time right?)

My bachelorette party was the night before the rehearsal dinner, so I was definitely super excited to get married, and everything was finally coming together. This party might seem weird to most of you, but it was absolutely PERFECT for me! My maid of honor, Marlee, definitely did good planning this for me! I guess I could say she knows me pretty well! πŸ™‚ Love this pretty lady!

Krystal was my only bridesmaid who couldn’t make it, but she had work and her three kiddos to take care of that night, so I completely understood! But since she won’t be in any of the pictures, here is a picture of me with my beautiful sister-in-law so that y’all know how much I love her!

Krystal is the one on the left, I couldn’t find one of just me and her. Brigette is on the right and is another one of my beautiful sister-in-laws!

We started out the party by going to the park for some yoga!

One of my favorite instructors and coworkers, Sarah, from the gym I worked at in college came and taught an hour long yoga class for us outside. It was so fun! It was a great workout, and I think the heat outside made me like it even more! It definitely made me want to try hot yoga sometime!

After yoga we all went and changed into some cuter clothes, touched up our makeup and hair, and tried to hide our smell with some perfume before heading to dinner.

I had no idea where we were going, but I was pleasantly surprised when we showed up at a Japanese steakhouse. It was one of those fun places where everyone sits around a table, and they cook the food in front of Β you. Not only do I think dinners like this are so fun, but the food is always so good! Marlee and I split a plate that came with chicken, salmon, rice, veggies, soup, and salad! Sadly, I didn’t get a picture, but trust me, it was good. My lovely, soon to be sister-in-law, Kaleigh, was sweet enough to take some pictures of the whole night so I didn’t have to worry about it.

Brigette had to fly in so she couldn’t make it in time for yoga, but she showed up to the restaurant at the same time as us, so it was perfect timing! Above is the whole group! Aren’t my bridesmaids beautiful? I love each of them so much!

This is a very lovely picture of me attempting to catch a piece of broccoli the cook threw at me. I failed. 😦

Marlee, however, was way better than me and caught her piece when the cook threw it at her. What can I say, my MOH has skills!

I had to include this fun picture of these two lovely ladies. πŸ™‚

And here is an awkward picture of just me I decided to throw in for laughs. I mean, is it just me or are pictures by yourself extremely awkward to take? I never know what to do with my hands, and I feel like I have no friends.

After dinner we headed back to Marlee’s parents’ house since it was close and we all spent the night! It was so fun having all of my closest friends together for a sleepover! Obviously we stayed up way too late talking about the most random and unimportant things ever. But it was perfect. πŸ™‚

So if you can’t tell, I’m not exactly a crazy, partying type. I know to most people my bachelorette party seems super lame, but to me, it could not have been more perfect. I got to work out, eat, and just have fun with my closest girl friends! That’s hard to beat! I will remember that night forever, and I am so thankful for my amazing friends who made the night so special for me! Thank y’all for always being there for me and supporting me not only on my big day, but all of the days leading up to my big day! πŸ™‚

P.S. Even though I am not really the partying type, I do not judge anyone who likes to have fun differently than me. We are all different, and that’s what makes the world fun! πŸ™‚

Questions:

1. What did you do for your bachelorette party? If you aren’t married what would you like to do for yours?

2. Favorite type of workout to do with friends?

3. Favorite restaurant to go to with friends?

  1. Yay! I can’t wait to hear about all the wedding fun!

    I think your party sounds awesome. I am also not the party type, so I actually didn’t even have a bachelorette party at all! If I did though, I would have done something just like you had. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who isn’t the party type. Since you didn’t have a bachelorette party you should just have a get together with your girlfriends and have a night like I had for my party. πŸ™‚

  2. Love this!!! Not married yet, but I image I will be doing something similar to this!!! It’s the little things that count! I would probably tell my bridesmaid that I want a spa day, have to relax during all that stress πŸ˜‰

  3. I love this! It’s so simple but perfect! I’m not married yet, but I imagine that mine would be laid back and simple as well, something like a spa day, just sounds so good πŸ™‚

  4. LOVEEE this!! Oh my this sounds like the perfect bachelorette party. I did go out for mine, but truth be told, that was more for everyone else. I would’ve loved like a bootcamp workout and out shopping and lunch, but it would’ve basically just been me doing it! Haha So I don’t think it’s lame or anything.. I loveeee your bachelorette party! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, I know I couldn’t be the only one who wanted some type of workout for her bachelorette party! To be honest, I”m not so sure how my bridesmaids enjoyed the yoga (it was most of the girls’ first time to do yoga), but they all had a good attitude about it for me. πŸ™‚

  5. I just got married on Saturday, so my bachelorette party was earlier this summer. It was pretty low key–my bridesmaids and I stayed at a hotel, went out for dinner and ice cream, played games, went swimming, and watched wedding movies. I loved it!
