Fore!!!

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!

Back in Action

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 atlbacheloretteresource@gmail.com 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.

It’s All in the Details

A Bachelorette party is a very special, and one of the most remembered times on a bride’s journey to her special day. Although many lucky brides are blessed with friends and family who end up throwing numerous showers, brunches, and teas- there is nothing like the final fling before the ring with your closest, and best girls. With all the planning involved, making sure this special night is arranged to a tee is a feat in itself- nothing says “I support you” more than going the extra mile to make that coveted night as special and unique as possible. Here are some great inspirations and ideas to give any bachelorette that special added touch.

Decor may not be the most important detail of a bachelorette party, however if you are planning something like a girl’s night in, dinner party, cocktail party etc.. having beautiful decor will make the evening even more special an out of the norm. Pick girly colors, or colors that work with the theme and start from there. From the linens to the cocktail straws, these little touches will not go unnoticed. Pomanders are very cute and easy to make. Not to mention easy on the wallet. Basically all you need it tissue paper, wire and ribbon. Here is a great DIY tutorial courtesy of Martha Stewart. 

Speciality cocktails and desserts are easy and delicious. If you have the baking or mixology gene this should be an easy added touch for those of you who are talented in the kitchen or behind the bar. Try something like a champagne cocktail to satisfy everyone’s palate.

Integrate a theme. It does not have to be over the top, but makes for an even more unique, unforgettable evening. Animal print, black and pink, or even an 80’s theme are easy to execute.

Decorate the car. Yes, it is corny and cliché however you only get one chance to do this for your friend. These decals are inexpensive and can be found at any Party City.

Cute accessories like these DIY buttons are super easy to make and turn into great keepsakes.

Make beautiful itineraries for all the party guests. These will keep everyone on the same page and are especially useful for those coming in from out of town.

Party On!

You’re Invited

These days it is so easy to inform your friends about any event under the sun by sending an invitation electronically, but let’s be honest; who doesn’t LOVE getting a fabulous invitation in the mail? Wedding season brings mailboxes full of invitations for the big day, shower invites, and save-the-dates. Not that sending bachelorette party invitations will ever go out of style,  but recently more than ever I have noticed an increase in cute, creative, fun invitations. A great invite is the first step in setting the tone for a great girl’s weekend so why not make it unforgettable starting with the invitations? With all the wonder design programs it is as easy as pie to create your own and save a little money. However, if you want to go over the top you can always get a little fancy with it and have them printed, or buy your own special stationary and print them yourselves. The possibilities are endless. Here are some of my favorite samples I have recently seen.

Pink & Gold makes for a stunning, girly invite.

Aqua invites set the tone for a fun, wild bachelorette.

Classy and Playful.

I love this toned down, sweet invitation. Invites are  a great way to show the style of the upcoming shindig.

These are so great for a combination bachelorette/lingerie night.

Slim invitations with a vintage feel.

Stunning bridal shower invite which would work for a bachelorette as well. Love this color combo!

I’m in Monogrammed Heaven

If you are a Southern lady then you know you have at least a dozen monogrammed items in your house. Not only is monogramming increasingly more popular, but it makes for fantastic, personalized gifts. Veeshee offers wonderful gift ideas from  totes to tailgating tubs, down to towels and umbrellas. They also give you the option to add personalization from only $5 with many of their items. These would make for great bachelorette gifts or even fun gifts for brides like their ultra cute city apron and oven mitt. Everything is very reasonably priced, but gives you the option to be creative, and to personalize without breaking the bank. Charming and fun are two key words I can easily use to describe their site and products. Check them out at Veeshee.com, on Facebook, or on Pinterest for other wonderful gift giving ideas and suggestions.

More Bachelorette Inspirations

Here are a few more fun Bachelorette Party/Bridesmaid/Bridal Shower ideas I have come across.

I always love a good trip to the spa with my ladies, However, these days everyone is always on a budget so why not host your own spa shindig? You can always have people come to your house for manicures, pedicures, and other various spa services. If you are feeling thrifty though why not do it all yourself? This inspiration board is full of cute ideas. Dessert Table, Lotions, Favors, and all kinds of other goodies. I think i would personally make this a brunch time kind of shower. What a fun way to spend an afternoon!

Really cute favor ideas. Also kind of goes with the pink and black theme from my last post.

Great inspiration board for a beach themed bachelorette bash. I think the monogrammed floppy hats would make a fantastic gift. Check out Marley-Lilly for great monogrammed hats and design ideas.

More great pink inspiration for a girl’s night out. From the invites to the drinks and cupcakes. Well executed and not over the top.

Another great survival kit jam packed with tylenol, candy cigs, candy necklaces, band-aids and of course a rubber. You can always personalize these according to your theme of the evening.

Keep Calm and Party On

In tradition of vintage British propaganda posters “Keep Calm and Carry On” knockoffs have been popping up all over the place. From supporting your favorite sports team to showing love for your favorite type of dog. These are a cute, fun way to show pride for whatever you support. Personally, I support throwing a fabulous Bachelorette Party. I came across these the other day and absolutely had to post these adorable finds. I love how they have integrated these into a girly party theme. Pictures courtesy of Pinterest.

Keep Calm and Party On!
