Epic Palm Springs Bachelorette Party
I'm SO excited to share all the details of my bachelorette! It was hands down the best weekend of my life this far (have a feeling wedding weekend will trump that - hah!) and I am excited to relive it with you. Keep scrolling for all the pics, deets, custom info, and outfits. Also, there's a new post up on Style Me Pretty with 5 tips for throwing a large Bachelorette Party - having 18 gals definitely adds some fun to the planning (shout out to my maid of honor and bridesmaids) but oh my goodness was it so worth it having all my favorites together for an incredible weekend. The weekend also marked my 32nd birthday hence the #bdaybashlorette tag and everyone made it so special!
As I mentioned in my SMP article, an itinerary is ALWAYS so helpful when there's a big group of people. I actually had ZERO part in planning my bachelorette except for the guest list and the location which was THE BEST because hi, I'm currently planning a wedding! Below was our weekend itinerary and this is the Airbnb we stayed at:
7pm | Pizza + Wine
9pm | Troop Beverly Hills Movie Screening
9am | Coffee + Gossip (most of us ended up working #adulting)
10am | Poolside Lounging
12pm | Lunch @ Arrive Hotel
3pm | Leisuring @ Casa bASHlorette
7pm| Pre- dinner Cocktails
8:30pm | Dinner @ Birba Palm Springs
10pm | Dancing + Debauchery @ Zeldas
9am | Bagels + Bloodies
10am | Poolside Lounging
12pm | Lunch from Sandwich Spot
2pm | Visit from the Manservants (this was a surprise and not on the printed itinerary)
8pm | Fiesta Dinner @ Casa bASHlorette
11 am | Check Out
11:30am | Brunch @ Lulu's
The itinerary was the perfect mix of party time and relaxing time, so no one ever felt too spent! In terms of our Friday night, I cannot suggest Birba Palm Springs enough. It is such yummy italian food and they accommodated our large party with a pre-fix menu served family style. After that we went out to Zeldas which is THE nightclub in Palm Springs. That place is a hoot and they'll give bachelorettes a really fun treat from some of their male dancers, if you know what I mean. We went there for my 30th too - they never disappoint. I'm pretty sure the girls + Eddie have some really interesting photos and vids on their phone that will show up on my 50th birthday or something.
That night we opted for an outfit theme where everyone wore black and I wore white. Initially I didn't want to do anything like that cuz it felt cheesy but my bridesmaids convinced me. TBH, it ended up making me feel really special especially when we were out and about in PS! If you're looking for a bachelorette outfit, I shared a bunch of fab ideas last week. Speaking of themes....
I about died when I saw the sweatshirts the girls made because the theme is just SO me! If you've never seen the movie Troop Beverly Hills then WATCH it because it's hilarious and so entertaining. As a girl scout for 12 years the movie and the theme just speaks for me. Also, so fitting because I have this tribe aka troop of amazing friends supporting me on this next journey in life!
Here are my top 3 places for custom Bachelorette Decor:
For Your Party: napkins, plates, cups, and more
Society 6: pillows, tapestries, beach towels, and more
Atomic Kraftworks: custom signs, drink stirrers, cake toppers, and more
90% of my Bachelorette Party decor came from one of those 3 places! Our sweatshirts were custom made including the Troop Palm Springs patch, however, we just added the Troop Palm Springs design to Society 6, so you can get it printed on anything!
Saturday was by far the best day because we never left the house! We all woke up pretty hungover from our night out at Zeldas and one of my bridesmaids made the most delicious egg casserole. From there it was just a day of drinking by the pool and relaxing. Between the company, our Funboy pool floats, and Joymode rentals I felt very entertained but the gals had other plans...
Then the Manservants showed up pouring Speak Rose and we were all living our best lives! These guys were the cutest and so sweet and obviously not hard on the eyes. We hung out with them for a few hours while they served us wine, sang me happy birthday, gave the girls massages, and took fun photos with us. It was THE BEST! From there on the rest of the afternoon/night is pretty blurry... haha... but I know that we had an epic photoshoot, dance party, and a hilarious game of What Do You Meme EDP edition!
As I relive the weekend by writing this post I can't but help become emotional over the fact that 18 of my bestest friends made it out to celebrate me. I mean 5 of them had to fly in to LA to be there - man, I feel so lucky! It was a weekend for the books.
