Weekending – Bachelorette Recap

Oh it feels good to be home but I am missing sleeping with the balcony doors open and hearing the ocean rolling in at night.  I’ll tell you what any girls trip you go on pick someone to be the bachelorette and then you won’t have to worry about anything else. I wanted to thank my amazing bridesmaids they really went above and beyond.  Spoiled is an understatement.  Also being able to travel with 5 women…..we all got along and were talking about our next trip on the way home.  I mean that just tells you how successful of a trip it was.  Linking up with B for all the details. 
The weekend started off by being scooped up in our pimp mobile for our drive down.  Seriously I want this beast.  It had tvs, every outlet plug you can imagine, and reclining heated seats all around.  Also vibrating seats…..that’s a story for a different day……basically it was amazing.
The drive down consisted of some great reminiscing and before you know it we arrived at the Fontainebleau.  
Let’s talk about this view.
The first night we did the more typical Miami night which consisted of the loud club scene.
Naturally it involved an eventful drive back home to the hotel.  Once again just hop in a personal detail SUV and tell them it’s a bachelorette party and suddenly it’s all good.
bachelorette bracelets, bachelorette party ideas
Apparently room service pizza was ordered.  I have better frozen pizza at home but at least it made for a good story.
Good thing we did a lot of barre in the room.  Those are my feet instructing.
The next morning afternoon after an amazing brunch at Yardbird (amazing highly recommend
It was back to the hotel to lay out by the pools.  Since it was raining off and on we took full advantage of the spa at the Fontainebleau.  If you are there I highly recommend it.  The eucalyptus steam room totally zapped everything out and the cucumber eye slices helped refresh those pretty little faces.
That night we had an amazing dinner at Scarpetta.  It was in our tower of the hotel except we went one floor too low and had a nice tour of the hotel.  The lobby is a scene.  People watching the whole weekend that is for sure.
Let’s talk about this dress for a second.  I am in love.
Then we went out for my favorite part of the weekend sitting around with my girls drinking amazing cocktails and just laughing until our stomachs hurt.  I seriously have the most entertaining and loving best friends.
Coming back to the hotel and sitting on the balcony drinking wine and soaking in the beautiful night was such a perfect way to end the night.  We wore these as much as we could.
I definitely didn’t want to leave this view!
Sunday morning after brunch (Oak Tavern in the Arts district….fabulous!) we hit the road back.  Back to life.  I’m sad it’s over but so excited about the countdown!  A month to go!  I’m so excited to be marrying Mark.  Definitely was happy to walk in the door to a dinner ready to go and clean kitchen.  Love that man.
Such a fabulous weekend getting some much needed pampering, spoiling and getting to hang with my loves.  Perfect bachelorette in the books!
Thanks for sticking around that picture heavy post.  There were so many more but just thought I’d share some of the highlights.  I hope y’all stayed warm this weekend.  What did you do for your bachelorette party?  What kind of parties that you’ve been a part of have been your favorite?  xoxoxo

  15. January 12, 2015 / 3:13 PM

    Still so bummed we couldn’t meet up! That’s what two busy schedules will get you… I’m still currently in my Fountainbleau robe, but seeing as though we need to check out in 45 mins, I should prob get my act together, right?!

  51. January 14, 2015 / 2:28 AM

    You are a STUNNER in that dress! I am insanely jealous of you being close enough to drive to Miami for your bachelorette. I am dying to go there, but it seems like distance is going to hinder some plans for my bridesmaids. I’m sure we will enjoy another great location, but I LOVE Miami, whereas my fiance does NOT and probably won’t ever go back. HAHA! Looks like an absolute blast!

  52. January 14, 2015 / 3:03 PM

    Looks like an amazing bachey party, lady. i’m so glad the girls spoiled you and planned everything so well. The last one I went to the MOH totally dropped the ball and I {and another friend} had to try and save it with our party ideas and planning. UGH, it was soooo not fun and the bride didn’t even thank us. #whatever!

    Your dress is gorgeous, the scenery looked divine and I’m so glad everyone got along, that’s so helpful. You are making me nostalgic for my bachey, just fun, sun good girls and a blast. You are so close to wedding time, I’m so excited for you, you really have NO IDEA!!!!

  53. January 15, 2015 / 5:55 PM

    What a great weekend! I can’t get over that view! Sounds like you’ve got a great group of girls in your life!

  54. January 16, 2015 / 3:54 AM

    This looks like such a fabulous weekend!!
    I’m still contemplating if i even want a bachelorette party (thankfully i have time to think about that one.) But if I do there will definitely be lots of food, wine, and pampering involved.
    Loving that dress too. You are gorgeous!

  55. January 16, 2015 / 11:58 AM

    That dress is AMAZING. Miami is definitely high up on my list of places I’d like to visit. My bachelorette party was hands down one my favorite parts to the wedding! It was just too fun and ended too soon! xo

  56. January 19, 2015 / 2:23 AM

    Girrrrrrl it looks like it was so much fun! I’m so glad for you. My bach was one of my favorite parts of my wedding and treasure those memories!!

  57. January 20, 2015 / 1:14 AM

    How fun!! I love your dress and that view is absolutely beautiful!! I haven’t had my bachelorette party yet, but two of my girlfriends had theirs in Miami and looks similar to yours ; )


  58. January 23, 2015 / 6:11 PM

    Now, THAT is a successful bachelorette weekend! So glad that your friends spoiled and pampered you! You deserve it!

  59. January 30, 2015 / 7:01 PM

    Sorry I’m catching up on posts because I haven’t had tons of time recently to read but that white dress is stuuuuunning on you. This looks like such a fun time!!
