bon voyage & bachelorettes

I’m heading out come morning – off on a trip with my cute little mom.  I’ll be gone for a week – but each day one of my girl crushes will be keeping you company over here.  You won’t even miss me … (:

if you do – don’t worry, i’ll still be tweeting my face off on location.  
in other news,
bachelorette parties.
i love em.  but why do they have to be all you-know-what straws?  and you-know-what cakes?
call me a prude.  i’m used to it.
How about something like these beauties:
only $18 here
Have you planned a bachelorette party?  How did you make it special for the bride?  
links/blog posts are much appreciated.  
i love being a girl.

    That was my #1 rule for my bridesmaids in planning my B party. No 'P' ANYTHING! We all wore black (because it makes everybody look good) with a white lily in our hair to let everybody know. Dinner with everyone and then a night on the town. Classy, but fun!

    I would be so disgusted if one of my girlfriend's ever planned me a bachelorette party with you-know-what anything. I hate that those things are associated with bachelorette parties. I want something simple and sweet – light cakes, some wine + a lounge! And for heaven's sake, no man parts.

    you will be missed.

    I said no man parts at my bach-ette party. luckily I had bridesmaids who love me so they adhered to my request =)
    My sister on the otherhand, would like a man part cake…I don't know if I can eat it haha!

    those bachelorette ideas are SO much cuter than the "you know what" themes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    my sisters planned my and strictly outlawed any things of "that" nature! I was VERY appreciative!

    Oh I love all these pictures that you posted! I would MUCH rather have a cute, sophisticated, girly bachelorette party than something raunchy!

    Enjoy your week with your mom!

    I've been following your blog a week or so now, but have yet to comment – I love it!

    I recently got engaged and totally agree with you! I have always thought bachelor/bachelorette parties are kind of trashy. I am planning a bachelorette party for my cousin later this year and have many pictures like the ones above in my inspiration file! Why not make it girly and pretty!

    I am like you and nothing bothers me more than trashy bachelor/ bachelorette parties.When I got married we went to dinner and then to a piano bar.

    Have a fun getaway with your mom
    PS: I have started something new and am showcasing a different party on Fridays!

    I have always said that I won't have any of those straws, cookies, pinatas, inflatables in the form of boy parts. So not my style and I am not anywhere near ready for a bachelorette party.

    Not a big fan of the you-know-what at these kinds of parties. Seems kind of obvious, but to each their own. I think the guest of honor should be comfortable and doing something they really enjoy.

    I seriously can't believe the timing of this post — I'm hosting a bachelorette party with a friend for another friend tomorrow and the table we have planned looks so much like the one you've pictured with the baby's breath centerpiece, old fashioned candy jars and the hanging ribbons!!!! Desert is lots of candy (in said old-fashioned jars) cotton candy and cheesecake with strawberry topping! ๐Ÿ™‚

    crazy timing! i'm hosting a bachelorette party next weekend for my best friend who happens to be marrying my brother (could I be any luckier?) we're going out to dinner at a mediterrean restaurant and since she's obsessed with all things London (she's an english teacher) my decorations for the night are all london themed instead of, um, unmentionables.

    I totally agree why do girls think that "stuff" makes a good party?!!!? I'm planning my best friends bachelorette party on top of moving to Germany but I am making sure everything is in order for a CLASSY weekend in Charleston, SC for her! My mom always tells "remember to always be a lady…" I love this post… So "ladylike"!

    I agree 100%. I'm a prude just like you. I think its tasteless and classless. I'm all for the sophistication and maturity of it all. Girls can have fun without all that stuff, I think any way.
    I did plan a party once for a friend, but I was young and boring (though now I'm just older but still boring) and we went out around town while I made her announce to everyone, restaurant, grocery store, people pulled over on the side of street that she was getting married. LAME I know. But we had fun.

    Any way, I came across your blog from another and just wanted to pop in and say HEY! Enjoyed reading =)

    This is EXACTLY what I wanted for my bachelorette party. Did it happen any where near this? No. But I will not be bitter. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Doesn't mean you're a prude… classy is more like it! I threw a bachelorette party this summer without the you-know-whats. We all dressed up in black, pink, or silver and at least one article of clothing had to shimmer/sparkle. After dinner and some fun downtown we went back to one of our houses played games (again without the you-know-whats) and decorated cookies in the shapes of bras and panties…it was cute! (Okay, who is the prude now?:) There was plenty of pink champagne enjoyed by all. Have fun this week! <3 MademoiselleMichael

    i just found your blog. LOVE! i agree 100%. i told my friends that when i get engaged (many years away) and it's time for a bachelorette party we will be doing a spa day. i get embarrassed so easily and the thought of a stripper or something makes me want to run away… eek! i don't think i'd survive.
