Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette Weekend!!

I'm pretty sure this past weekend was one of my favorite weekends in the history of ever. My bachelorette party was such a success! The 7 of us had SO much fun in Charleston, we all got along great and there was no drama! (If you've ever been on a trip with a bunch of girls, you know this can be hard to come by!)

The festivities started Thursday night when I picked up Natalie from the airport and we had a yummy Mexican dinner!!! (Sorry, no pics of that!)
Friday morning, Caitlin came over to my house, we picked Dana up from the airport and then the 4 of us headed to Frugal McDougal to buy some beverages!!!

We made it to Charleston and met up with Angela who had been waiting for us! We went out to dinner at Stool Pigeons where the waiter gave us happy hour prices even though it wasn't happy hour!

We were at dinner till pretty late, so we just went back to our hotel to meet up with the Katie's who had just arrived. Since we are all old  not as young as we used to be and cannot drink heavily 2 nights in a row, we just chilled at the hotel and had a low-key night!

Saturday, we decided to take a carriage tour, which was a super fun and touristy thing to do! I loved seeing all of the beautiful houses in Charleston!! 
I kept picking out ones for Travis to buy me :)

{This is the restaurant where Reese Witherspoon had her bridal shower!}

{we saw a wedding about to start in the park!}

{of course I found a wedding dress shop!}

After the carriage tour, we had lunch and yummy drinks at A. W. Shucks and then went shopping on King Street!

{I found Princess St. and decided I needed to live there! Haha}

After we shopped around and bought some super cute jewelry, we headed back to the hotel to get ready for my bachelorette party!

{I got lots of fun presents!}

After a few drinks in our hotel room, we went to dinner at Poogan's Porch. After I walked in, I realized I had eaten there with Travis a few years ago when he took me to Charleston for my birthday! I got shrimp and grits (surprise! its kinda my go-to meal) and it was sooooo yummy!!!

After dinner, we headed out to some bars!!! I am so thankful that my friends didn't make me wear penis-shaped anything!!!! I saw some other bachelorettes out that weren't as lucky....
Dana also had some "dares" that she found online, but we agreed that half of them were kinda dumb, so thankfully my friends didn't make me do anything super embarrassing either!!!

{We met some Army guys who were oddly dressed up...I mean, have you ever seen pocket squares like this?!?!? Oh and also they knew one of my ex-bf's....random}

I had SOOO much fun with my friends!!! I'm so glad the weekend was fun for everyone, not just me!!!! It was honestly the perfect bachelorette party!!! Natalie, Dana, Ang, Caitlin, Katie and Katie Bras, THANK YOU TIMES 10000 for an amazing weekend!!! I love you girls!!!!
