#throwbackthursday: The Bachelorette Party

     Happy Thursday and to my Instagramers Happy #tbt ( Throw Back Thursday)!  Since I still have not gotten around to posting about all the pre-wedding events, I have decided to do a few #TBT posts.   Today's #TBT is my Bachelorette Party. 

 My Bachelorette party was held over Labor Day weekend on Long Beach Island and in Atlantic City, NJ.  I wanted to keep my bachelorette weekend small since we were staying at my parent's beach house for part of the weekend, so we kept it to just the bridal party ( and my mom for Friday night  ).


My mom did an amazing job decorating the house with little bridal details

    I know I am biased but I seriously do have the best friends and bridal party ever.  My bridesmaids came in from all across the country, one of my girls even drove 12 hours just to make it to my special weekend.  

   The girls got in Friday and we spent time at the beach before the festivities started.  Friday night we made "make your own pizza"  using Naan bread as crust and using a variety of toppings.  This was a hit and an easy way to accommodate all my friend's dietary needs and different

   We then finished the night by drinking too many glasses of champagne and Moscow Mules.  My mom is so much fun and knows all of my bridesmaids well, so it was so fun to have her celebrate with us Friday night.

One of my bridesmaids ALV made these personalized water bottles for everyone which came out so cute.  She is so talented!

For favors I got each of my bridesmaids LBI wine glasses and filled them with mints, lip gloss, and hair ties I made as a thank you for all the girls.

We also had personalize sunglasses made which certainly got their use over the weekend.

    Saturday we headed down to Atlantic City and stayed at Revel for the night.  During the day we lounged by the pool, checked out the boardwalk, and casinos and then started getting ready for our big night out.

We all got ready and my sweet bridesmaids threw me a lingerie shower before dinner.  We all posed for pictures, drank more champagne and then headed to dinner at Amada a Tapas restaurant in Revel.  It was so delicious, if you are ever in the area I would recommend it.

    Finally, we were ready to put our dancing shoes on and we made our way to Royal Jelly a Burlesque bar in Revel.  We danced and danced and danced with and without our sunglasses. 

This picture pretty much sums up the whole night.

The next day we headed back to Long Beach Island and nursed our hangovers with TV, movies and some sun.

  1. I am really not going to lie...Atlantic City is one of my favorite places on Earth. I have not actually been inside Revel since its arrival but I do love the Tropicana for its restaurants and nightlife. Decorating the hotel room was genius.

  2. All of these events look like so much fun! I am sure you have wonderful memories from them!


  3. Looks like the perfect weekend! So cool your mom got to join in on the fun Friday night. And I love your white dress!!!

  4. Looks like such a fun time! Love all the fun decor!
