There’s a lot to think about when you’re getting married. You’ve got to think about who you’re inviting and then work out the venue based on this. Then once you’ve sorted this, what are people going to eat? How will you get to the venue? Do you want an nj limo service? Or a horse-drawn cartridge? Even deciding the theme is a big deal! But there’s one time you can forget all of this, and that’s your bachelorette party! And, my goodness, I was going to make this day last as long as I could!
For my bachelorette, I told my MOH (Maid of Honor) that all I wanted was sand. I wanted to be on the beach somewhere. We didn’t have to go to Miami, or the Bahamas, I just really wanted to hear the ocean. So I and four of my girls went to Tybee Island, Savannah Georgia. I would say so far it’s been one of the most memorable experiences of my wedding process thus far! Planning a bachelorette party with your friends doesn’t have to be expensive, especially as you’ve got the wedding to look forward to and the money you’ve spent on that big day. It’s all about having fun and being able to create memories with your friends. Looking for inspiration on what to get the bride to be for her bachelorette party?

But I’m sure they’ll appreciate the gifts too.
An unusual pick you say? Well, I wanted adventure and I certainly got one. A lot of people asked why I didn’t just stay in NYC and go to clubs. Truthfully, as much as I love NYC, I wanted to be close to less. Fewer lights, noise, and that weird liquid on the street that happens to always be a puddle no matter how hot it is- it never evaporates.
My MOH and my bridesmaids booked a house on the beach on Tybee Island. It’s called the “Peach Penthouse”. So up my alley, with so much color. They used Air BnB to book. I actually liked it so much more than a hotel. I never tried Air BnB and I was so glad we did for the trip because it was so cozy to have an entire townhouse to ourselves. It felt good to go somewhere totally new. And it was even more refreshing to go to the grocery store near our little house where the eggs only cost .85¢!
We went to a place called “The Crab Shack” and we were greeted with tons of people who were dressed in short shorts, cut off tees and flip flops. Our group, however, ready for more fun out, was dressed in form-fitting clothing, and full faces of makeup. We were met with confused looks until they all saw the prominent “Bride to Be” sash and small veil that I have been sporting for what seems like the last few years. LOL
The hostesses were amused and sat us in the back of the “restaurant” on a large outdoor patio. I say that in quotation marks because there didn’t appear to be an insider? Everything seemed to be in wooden frames and outdoors on wooden decks and almost felt like we were in someone’s backyard. It was magnificent. The food was beyond what I imagined we would find near the beach. We bought a “sampler” of crab legs, shrimp, clams, corn, and potatoes and it was enough to feed all five of us. The funniest/cutest thing about this outdoor “restaurant” was the cats. There were dozens and dozens of obese cats. There were clear signs everywhere that said: “Please Do Not Feed the Cats”. However, when any shrimp bits of crab bits fell to the ground, the cats would spring into action and eat it. We ate lots of seafood on the trip. Luckily we’re all into that!
On Saturday, we hit the town and looked at the local hot spots and found a very adorable “retro” cafe. It even had a punny name and of course, I’m all for a punny anything. The Tybean Café- get it? Because we were on Tybee Island!
I have a really strong sense of adventure, and I really feel that is exactly what I got for my bachelorette. It was seriously the cutest little place to unwind, and the $2 margaritas weren’t too bad either. 🙂 I can’t divulge all the details of my bachelorette but I’m so thankful for fun in the sun with my best girls and for their willingness to just try something out of the ordinary. 13 days to go until my wedding day! I’m so excited and I can’t wait to share more of my wedding planning with you.
