Hello friends! It has been a little longer than I would have liked since my last post, but my bachelorette weekend at the beach is partially to blame. It was definitely a good reason to be distracted from blogging! Before I get back into my blogging rhythm, I thought I’d share my thoughts on bachelorette parties, some highlights of the ladies weekend in South Carolina and my Bachelorette Party outfit. Spoiler Alert: I have an awesome new pair of knock-off designer pumps for you all!
First, let’s talk about bachelorette parties. Honestly, I was unsure about the necessity of a bachelorette Party or weekend. I do not have a sister who would likely take the lead on planning and I did not want to ask anyone to plan something for me or feel like a burden. Then, one of my good friends and bridesmaid offered to plan it all. I am so glad and grateful that she did!!
While a bachelorette party is not truly necessary, it was such a fun and valuable time to be with some of my closest and sweetest girlfriends. In the midst of all the wedding planning stress, our weekend offered me not just a break but a great reminder of the amazing people I have in my life. I am already reminiscing about what a special time it was.
To any brides to be out there who are contemplating whether or not to do a bachelorette party – GO FOR IT! This time only comes around once, so you should not hesitate to enjoy it and live it up. The truth is – bachelorette parties do not need to be an extensive or complicated production. As long as you are with friends and family that care about you, that is all that matters. You can decide to have a big sleepover at someone’s place, do a roadtrip or plan a big weekend in Las Vegas. As long as you are doing things you like with the people you like, you will have a blast!
Bachelorette Weekend in South Carolina
For my bachelorette weekend, we ventured to the coast of South Carolina for a long weekend. Most of the time we were near a small coastal town called Georgetown. Once we arrived on Friday, we did a walk along the beach, picked up barbecue for dinner and stayed up late playing Cards Against Humanity. On Saturday, we visited the Hopsewee Plantation and explored Georgetown after getting some lunch.
That afternoon we got ready to head into Charleston for some fun! We hopped on a party bus and enjoyed some games and drinks as we headed to dinner at the Darling Oyster Bar. Dinner was delicious and the service and ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for a Bachelorette Party. We went to a bar after dinner and did a little dancing before heading home. On Sunday, we slept in and ate breakfast burritos. We also went to a painting and sipping place in Georgetown before a tasty dinner and Olympics-viewing.
Bachelorette Party Outfit
After trying a couple dresses that did not work, I was unsure of what I was going to wear on Saturday night. I managed to pull a few things together in my closet. One thing I knew I would wear were my new pumps. These shoes are knock-offs of Valentino’s Rockstud heels. They look super similar and are a fraction of the cost. I decided to get these after reading all the positive reviews on Amazon. The maker of these shoes also has several other cute knock-off shoes that I am eyeing!

Did you have a bachelorette party before you got married? Have you been a part of a fun bachelorette party? Tell me all about it and what you wore. I would love to hear your thoughts on bachelorette parties in general too.

Great bachelorette party. Like the mood and joy.
Such great memories. Love that you got to eat oysters – they are amazing in SC
Oh my gosh how fun is this! It all sounds perfect!
I did have a bachelor party before I got married. Unfortunately the marriage didn’t take but the party was ok. I’m not one for doing the guy thing and getting a stripper though. I went with friends to a nice movie and we watched a special showing of one of my favorite movies at the theater. It was a lot of fun.
Sounds so much fun. I think these kind of occasions make the events more memorable. Enjoyed seeing your happy pics.
So happy to hear you enjoyed your special girls’ getaway in SC! I feel like Bachelorette Parties are a must, so it’s awesome you ended up getting yours!
I threw one once for a friend of mine in college, and while pretty much everyone ended up enjoying it, the bride HATED it! It’s because we got her a stripper and she thought her fiance would be angry. Even though he didn’t care. But she still freaked about the thought of “cheating” on him. Even though he was definitely gay.
I love the outfit you chose! It looks like everyone had a great time!
I like how you state that a party is not necessary. My daughter and I were just talking about this yesterday. It’s especially important to mention that you didn’t ask for one or for someone to host it. I believe hanging out with friends and family is fun during the craziness though.
Exactly! I’m grateful for the experience but I really didn’t want people who are already doing so much for me at this time to feel at all obligated to plan or be part of the party. 😊
Looks like such a fun weekend! I love your pretty outfit!
Very nice bachelorette party. like the atmosphere and happiness.
Looks like so much fun. I didn’t do anything elaborate for mine, but I love looking at what others have done.
Sounds like an awesome weekend! My bachelorette party was on the beach near Tampa, Florida since one of my bridesmaids and I lived in Orlando at the time and my sister (maid of honor) and other bridesmaid were in South Florida, so it was a good middle point. I agree, even if you aren’t much of a party person (like me) it’s still a great excuse for a girls night out or weekend away!
That sounds so fun Stephanie! There’s something about quality girl time that is just good for the soul!! 😊
Wow my sister is getting married and we were thinking to throw bachelorette party for her, these ideas looks really fresh and wonderful.
I was never on bachelorette party before. My closest friends are not married yet. But, I can see you have enjoyed and have so much good time. I really like these blue glasses they are so pretty. Go with your besties on trip is amazing I love girls trips.
My best friend got married not too long ago and her bachelorette party was different because all of us bridesmaids were married and it was a little weekend get away for us, we did not have any particular outfit, but it was the best girl trip/weekend getaway I have ever had.
Ah that sounds perfect! I definitely feel like girls trips should be a more regular occurrence now. 😊
