One thing I did not think of when planning a wedding, was all of the other pre-wedding festivities like a bridal shower or bachelorette party and how to get ready for these special events. Whether you are opting for a bachelorette weekend away with girlfriends or keeping it local, there are somethings you will need to get you through the festivities. I’ve outlined some of my favorite bachelorette outfits and essentials for this fun filled time!
What to Pack for a Bachelorette Weekend
Spending a weekend away with some of my best girlfriends was how I chose to spend my bachelorette celebrations. Going into the weekend I was sure of 2 things:
- We were going to have a blast
- I wanted to feel comfortable and beautiful
With #2 what I packed from outfits to skincare was a big factor.
Let’s start with what to wear. During the day, I knew I wanted to be comfortable, functional, and of course fashionable while we explored a new city and brunched together. I opted for a bodysuit paired with some comfy shorts. With the bodysuit I knew I would look put together while we were running around. I love that I don’t have to worry about a shirt coming untucked, or looking a little too relaxed in a looser fitting shirt.
Wearing a bodysuit, it’s important to balance out your bottom with a more causal or looser fitting option. A boyfriend style jean or relaxed tailored short will do just the trick and ensure you are stylish and comfortable for all your daytime celebrations! And of course you’ll need a cute, compact cross body purse to top off your look and effortlessly tote around your daytime essentials.
For a Bachelorette Night Out
For a night out celebrating with my girls, it was important I wore something that I felt “bridal” in, but still functional enough to dance around in. I opted for a lace romper and do not regret it one bit! The white lace screamed bridal, while the romper provided me enough security to bust-a-move on the dance floor.
Paired with a block heel for extra comfort and some adorable bridal accessories curtsey of my BFF’s, we were ready to take the town.
Skincare Essentials For Bachelorette Weekend
If you know me, you know that packing for a weekend away is not complete without a skincare routine for the road.
Knowing that we would be overindulging a bit, and likely up later than normal, I wanted to pack items that would help my skin detox, and stay hydrated.
My on the road skincare essentials include:
Most importantly, leading up to your bachelorette weekend – remember to have fun. This is your time before the wedding planning takes over to let loose with friends and relax. Laugh a lot, don’t take yourself too seriously, and cherish every moment!
