By forgoing bridesmaids, I knew that I might miss out on somethings like a proper bachelorette. And that was completely fine with me.

But when two of my close friends suggested a low-key, beach side bachelorette, I was completely smitten with the idea. They brought flowers, stacks of magazines, an outrageous amount of delicious food, a beautiful gift and decorations that they hung from tree branches. I felt doted upon, loved, and relaxed - quite the winning combination. It felt like a little vacation from all the wedding craziness!

Speaking of which, three days!

  31. i think that just like the wedding, the bachelorette must match one's own taste too - this was so you! sounds like a lot more fun and a night of debauchery in tacky bars.
