1. Destination Bachelorette Party Planning Tips

    Planning a bachelorette party might be the singular most involved event one can plan, and yes more so than a wedding!  There are typically a lot of moving parts, a lot of opinions & often emotions, and let’s be honest, planning a party isn’t our day job.  In life I’ve managed to get away with only being in charge of one, this one being all the way in London.  Bachelorette parties inspire travel with the idea of a destination bachelorette being especially attractive.  It is the unknown factor however, that can cause even the greatest of party planners to break out into cold sweats.  By following a few simple golden rules, a destination bachelorette party becomes far less intimidating and instead a triple circled date on your calendar filled with excitement!

  2. The Refined And Wonderfully Sophisticated Bachelorette Party

    I find that as we get more mature {we'll ditch older for everyone's sake!} that bachelorette parties begin to take on a different form. Lets face it, a bachelorette in your 20's does not look the same as a bachelorette party in your 30's, amiright? When photographer Lauren Smith of Lauren W Photography sent along a peek at her very own sister-in-law's bachlorette party beautifully styled by Lauren herself, I knew this sophisticated take on girl's night out was the perfect representation. A focal point to every great party is wonderfully tasty frosty beverages {there are some really amazing non-alcoholic options these days!} which Lauren presented in glorious style thanks to a gold bar cart accented by metallic gold tinsel & sequins naturally! Next up were sweet treats in the form of cupcakes topped with pop rocks, white chocolate pretzel rods, fruit, rock candy, nuts, & sugar cookies. Everything was lovingly polished with greens & burgundy peonies with the pièce de résistance in oversized XO balloons! By setting a more refined stage for the evening, the ladies were able to enjoy in the spirit of what a bachelorette party is, without all the well.... usual suspects if you will!
