Amanda’s bachelorette party

Categories   Bachelorette + Shower

Good morning, Cakelets! Hope your weekend was wonderful. Thought it would be a fun way to start off the week with photos of my bachelorette party! And what a fun one it was!

I always knew my gals were the best, but they truly blew me away with a weekend I will never forget. There was a big delicious dinner cooked, plenty of dancing, champagne cupcakes and custom “Triple AAA” cocktails on Friday. Saturday consisted of pool time at the Mondrian’s outdoor living room on a big bed, reading tabloid magazines, drinking pineapple mojitos and gawking over the Hollywood scene together. And Danielle from The Why We Love was there to capture all the girlie fun!

The fun didn’t stop there (of course)…my gals had lots of other plans in store. Come late afternoon, they brought me up to our hotel room, gave me a cute nightie to wear and some pink lipstick. Then we scurried off to our other room, which was decked out in pink feather boas, cute signs, a food spread and champagne. How fun are those signs that my friend Jenna made?

I wasn’t sure what exactly was going on until I was greeted by a cute gal welcoming me to our group burlesque lesson! I’ve always secretly wanted to take one of these, and no better time than with my gals!

Our Hells Belles instructor, Jaime, gave quite the lesson.. we learned all the tricks.

During the lesson, we paused for a fun little game where the ladies wrote down their tips on how to keep things spicy with a honey, and I had to pick my favorite. I had a huge laugh over the saucy things they came up with!

After our dance lesson, I heard my name and looked over to see my friend Jenna standing in front of the open door to the bedroom holding a big sign. All I remember is the gals running into the bedroom, tossing me a pillow (which Jenna made, stuffed with pink and white feathers) and the rest was a blur of pink and laughter.

The evening continued with cocktails at the Chateau and dinner at my favorite restaurant, where they gave me a box filled with memorabilia and hand-written notes from each gal about our rich friendships together (which had me pretty teary eyed). It all ended with a dance party in our limo, which extended to our hotel room, and we fell asleep amidst feathers and giggles.

Ok, now tell me that isn’t one of the most fun bachelorette parties you’ve seen. ha!

I’m truly one lucky gal..

Wow!!! Love the detail and reception photographs!! Oh, and anything in in between! Gorgeous.

Cynthia on Jun 28, 2013

A pillow fight?! What a fantastic, exhilarating original idea! I love it! I've found there's really a shortage of clean bachelorette party ideas that are still not clearly bridal shower ideas -- because the bachelorette is truly different: a time of bonding with your girls.
