As much as I would like to blog about bachelorette parties for a living.. a girl’s gotta support herself. RD Music & Marketing is my full-time job, and we are in the running to qualify for a $250k grant from Chase Mission Mainstreet for small businesses. It would mean so much to me if my readers could take 1 minute out of your time and please vote for us. All you have to do is be logged in through Facebook to vote. This would give our business such a huge opportunity for growth if we end up meeting the goal for votes. The grant will also help us bring family friendly events to more communities all across the U.S. All my readers are so wonderful and we would truly appreciate your support. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us out!
I absolutely love unique bachelorette party and shower ideas. Everyone enjoys a night out on the town with the girls, but it is always fun to mix it up a little bit. When I came across the idea of a golf themed shower I absolutely had to share with my readers. Most I have seen are themed parties (which are absolutely adorable.) However, I think it would be super fun to take it a step forward and bring your best girls out for some time on the course. Now for those of you who are not savvy on the links- a driving range would be a great way to enjoy the golfing experience without sitting through 18 holes. Even mini golf could be a fun alternative (with minis in tote of course.) So why not get the ladies together, throw a few back, and shag some balls? For those of you in Atlanta Legacy & Fox Creek are located right outside the perimeter and offer instruction for groups and singles in addition to their driving ranges. Without further delay..here are some fun inspirations I have come across. Enjoy!

My sweet boyfriend and I are die-hard Alabama fans. Since he is such a doll he ordered me one of these awesome spirit jerseys as a gift for football season.

As it turns out the Southern Shirt Co actually makes a bridal collection which are super cute, and perfect for a bachelorette outing or even for the wedding day! These are a fun change-up instead of the monogrammed button ups. No, I would not recommend these if your girls are in the process of having their hair done, but for a group outing or fun picture session they would be adorable. They run $45 from SSC, however I believe they offer bulk ordering for large groups. You can also customize them accordingly. Just FYI they run a little big! Check out a few cute options below and be sure to check out their site.
To my wonderful, dedicated followers,
Recently I was notified that my blog (which has not been updated in close to a year) has been receiving an incredible amount of traffic. This came as a shock considering the lack of updates. However, I find myself inspired and feel a triumphant return to the resource with new posts for all my beautiful bachelorettes is in order. Though I am an Atlanta-based gal; I plan on posting more about all the ins and outs of bachelorette parties as well as fresh ideas for my followers from all over. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions, questions, or comments about anything related to the website, event planning, or general bachelorette shenanigans. I look forward to updating and hope to help make all of your bachelorette planning endeavors come true. Party on, ladies. Party on.

I was recently enlisted by a close girlfriend to help plan a bachelorette beach bash for the upcoming spring. Though vastly unseasonal I figured it would be a good time to make note of some tips and inspirations during the early stages of planning.
As I always try to instill in the minds of fellow friends and planners do your best to encourage a commitment from all of those who are invited. It is immensely difficult to budget when you do not have everyone on board. Also inviting 25 guests on an out-of-town trip is not only a major pain to plan for, but makes it nearly impossible to keep tabs on that large of a guest list. I am a strong believer in keeping your bachelorette party down to a smaller, more manageable size. This way everyone can enjoy themselves and it makes it easier for those who are executing the planning. When booking an out-of-town venue, hotel, house, condo- whatever it may be knowing the approximate number of attendees makes it that much simpler to budget, book, and follow through with all the little details.
Since I am an Atlanta girl it is a little difficult to make suggestions on exactly where to plan your bachelorette beach weekend since I have readers from all over. However, for those of you the South, here is a list of accessible destinations in no particular order;
1. Destin, FL. 2. Charleston, SC 3.Gulf Shores, AL. 4. Miami, FL 5. Daytona Beach, FL.
A lot of ladies I know have been choosing to forego sending out paper invites and to just send an e-vite to get the ball rolling. As easy as e-mail is I love receiving good invite in the mail (especially for a bachelorette weekend.) Here are a couple of fun, different samples I have recently come across;
As far as favors go it is always nice treat your friends with a little “thank you for coming” gift. By no means does it have to be anything expensive, however it is always a nice gesture to show your guests that you are appreciative of them being there to celebrate with you. Here are a couple of cute, affordable ideas that can be easily duplicated and used as gifts.
You can find adorable towels for as cheap as $4 at any local Wal-Mart, Target, etc. Usually monogramming is fairly inexpensive depending on where you go, but if the idea of full named doesn’t appease, you can always do a single letter.
Personalized cups are such a great, easy DIY gift especially for a beach weekend. However, if you do not have the time to craft you can always easily order them online. (photo above courtesy of ETSY)
I love, love, love koozies for a bachelorette party gift and they are so appropriate for a beach weekend. Not only are the extremely cheap to order and personalize, but they also last and can be used 100 times. Such a perfect keepsake for a weekend you and your girls will not surely soon forget.
