The Fun Part: Bachelorette Party Planning

Wedding planning is not all puppies and rainbows; but there are some tasks that are fun from the get go. The bachelorette party falls into this category.

You can put me anywhere with my best girlfriends and we will no doubt have a memorable time. For my bachelorette party, I decide that Austin, TX would be the destination. Austin is such a vibrant city. If you’ve never been, I’d highly recommend it.

Let me be clear. I’m not looking for a night on the town in hopes that guys will buy us shots. I refuse to wear a tiara, veil, sash or any other common future bride adornments that seem to make its appearance at bachelorette parties.

What I do want is a retreat. I want a place where my girlfriends and I can relax, bask in the sun, drink a margarita or two, and not have to get dolled up to go out and mix with others. Instead, I’m looking for some solitude and privacy for us girls to enjoy each others company. Often times, when I fly to Texas to visit my girlfriends, the most fun is had before the night even begins. Before dinner, before the drinks, the time spent getting ready and just laughing with your friends. That’s the best. That’s what I’m hoping to have for an entire weekend as my bachelorette party.

We rented a “tree house” on the Guadalupe River that is surrounded by giant cypress trees. To me, this sounds like a slice of heaven in the middle of the Lone Star State.
