Lauren's Bachelorette Weekend

Well Lauren & Josh have now been married for almost a month (Sept 24th will be a month to be exact), and I'm just now getting around to showing off her Bachelorette Weekend!! Let me just start with I believe our check liver lights came on on our way home Sunday! LOL! We had a BLAST!!

Friday night we got all dressed up after we all arrived at the hotel, and headed out to the Rascal Flatts/The Band Perry/Kassadee Pope concert. We took the hotel shuttle there, and headed in for some fun!

Bachelorette Party Weekend night #1:
Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, & Kassadee Pope
Top: The Bride, Most of our group (too many names!)
Center: this was our whole gang that went to the concert Friday night! Cowgirl boots & all!
Bottom: Rascal Flatts, & me & The Bride

The concert was an absolute blast!! We missed Kassadee Pope play, but The Band Perry was amazing, and Rascal Flatts were great! The Band Perry seriously ROCKED IT!! After the concert we walked back to the hotel, ate a little pizza, and passed out.

Saturday, we all ate breakfast together, and then we separated into groups and went shopping. My friend Jess & I went to the mall, and shopped until we dropped! Came back to the hotel, and we all started pregaming by the pool, having fun! It was time to get ready for the actual Bachelorette Party, which was held up in Lauren's suite. We ate pizza, bread sticks, and wings, drank beers, had her open up gifts, gave the guests their party favors and then we headed out to the hotel shuttle so we could hit the town! We had group shirts made for all that came "Help Us Tank Her Before She Drops The Anchor", and Lauren's said "Tank Me I'm The Bride"! They were so fun!

The first bar we went to, we had a free bottle of wine waiting for us, it was at Oeno Wine Bar. It was a neat place, had live music outside, but it wasn't the place for us to hang out the rest of the night. So we walked down to River City brewery, had a couple of micro brews, and waited in line to get up stairs to Loft 150 where there was a live band playing. It was fun for awhile, but it was time to move on. Then we found Pump House, and that's where we stayed for the remaining of the night! We had so much fun dancing, and laughing...just what we needed!!

So many memories were made, it was such a fun weekend to celebrate our good friend Lauren!!!

Bachelorette Party Banner {Cheers Bitches}

I created another fun party banner using my Cricut, and I have to say this is probably one of the funnest ones I've created! I got the idea from etsy, but I didn't feel like paying so much for something so simple. I knew I could create it for a fraction of the cost!

I bought the sparkly teal scrapbook paper at hobby lobby, then I typed out the letters on CDS, and then cut the letters out with my cricut. I had some bright pink curling ribbon that I taped the letters to. It was a very quick, easy, and cheap project!! And the Bride kept the letters and has them hanging in their garage!

{Dollar Store} Bachelorette Party Favors

What's a fun Bachelorette Party without some really fun favors?! We just had to come up with something to thank everyone for traveling to Wichita to help celebrate Lauren's Bachelorette Party!

We purchased $1 beer mugs at the Dollar Tree, along with packs of gum, Tylenol packs, and lip gloss. The MOH works at the liquor store, so she also was able to get a bunch of the travel liquors for pretty cheap. I printed up a little saying, cut out a tag shape with my cricut, and then traced the sayings and cut them out. I made a hole punch, and then adorned them with little blingy ring embellishments I found in the scrapbooking aisle.

Each favor cost about $5.25 total, including the little tag that I made and tied on to the cups. Everyone loved them, and it was a little something they could use throughout the night! PERFECT!
