Jen’s Bachelorette Weekend

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday! I just got back from fun bachelorette weekend for my good friend, Jen, who is getting married in 5 weeks. Here she is (in the light blue top) with her bridesmaids!

The six of us rented a house in Mystic, Connecticut for the weekend, so we all drove down on Friday night. A number of us got stuck in traffic and arrived later than expected, so we stayed in and enjoyed a low-key evening. On Saturday morning, we woke up bright and early, made breakfast, and then headed to a nearby spa to get our nails done.

Obviously, our mani-pedis included champagne!

Lunch

After spending nearly 4 hours at the spa, we were starving, so we popped into a little pizza shop to grab lunch.

I had a chicken sandwich (minus the bun) for lunch.

After our late lunch, we headed back to the house and then got ready to go to Mohegan Sun for the night. A limo picked us up!

The limo ride involved drinking more champagne, but we had a little trouble popping the bottle.

Watch out!

Cover your eyes! Haha!

We eventually got it opened!

Dinner

As soon as we arrived at Mohegan, we headed to Margaritaville for dinner and drinks.

To start, we shared an order of nachos and spinach-artichoke dip among the table.

While munching on our appetizers, one of the balloon artists at Margaritaville came to our table to entertain us. First, he made the bride-to-be a fun hat.

Depending how you look at it, it can be one of two things! Haha!

And then he made everyone else at the table a little something”¦

For my dinner, I ordered a burger with avocado and mixed veggies on the side.

After dinner, we headed to Vista Lounge for some more drinks. Vista just opened a few weeks ago, so we were all excited to check it out. Plus, my friends at Mohegan offered to reserve us a table for the night, so we were pumped.

When we arrived, there was a really sweet surprise waiting for us!

Thanks, Mohegan!

We spent most of the night at Vista””sipping champagne (additional bottles were purchased), chatting, people watching, and, eventually, getting down on the dance floor. (The DJ was really good!)

Jen said she had an awesome time at her bachelorette weekend. Hooray! I’m so glad I was able to celebrate with her before the big day.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite memory from a bachelorette (or bachelor) party?

Mine is my bachelorette weekend in Vegas. Omg, we had SO much fun! I’d love to relive that weekend! Ha!

  1. I went to my first bachelorette party early this summer for one of my closest friends. It was so much fun and started with us going to a pole dancing class (we were all VERY thankful for the champagne) and ended with dinner, drinks and dancing as the night continued. So fun!

  2. I usually cringe when I see people posting bachelorette party pics, but I am glad you guys did not have any peen related straws. Or even if you did you kept them off the blog 🙂

  3. I’m not quite at the age where I’ve been to a bachelorette party yet … but I can’t wait for all my friends to start marrying off because I’m looking forward to them!! 🙂 Looks like a fabulously fun weekend!! (Oh, and congrats to Jen and her husband-to-be!)

  4. Why didn’t you ask them to remove the bun before bringing it to you? It’s kind of misleading…and a waste of bread that you’re not going to eat!

  5. So much fun! My best bachelorette parties have been in NYC. I’m not a swanky club kind of gal, so I usually take my friends to cool authentic restaurants and bars with fun dance music. Although, a close second would be the time I witnessed the usually prim and proper bride allow the hunky bartender do multiple body shots off her stomach. It should have felt so wrong, but she was so cute and giggly about it, it was just funny!

  6. looks like so much fun!! My favorite part of my bachelorette party was when we all went dancing at the end of the night–so many laughs and just such a fun time.

  7. Mine was in Fire island (which is off the coast of Long Island) we rented a house it was amazing. ate at the house on the beach and went out at night. We were just saying last night how amazing it was i can’t believe we are getting married in 2 weeks omg……double workout tmrw – run and physique

  8. For my bachelorette party this past June, we went wine tasting up in Santa Barbara. The best part besides drinking a LOT of wine was the bus tour. There was another group there that was incredibly entertaining, especially one of the guys. Hilarious!

  9. What a fun weekend! At one of my friends bachelorette’s, her future mother-in-law had sent this awful cheeta-print bath towel and shower cap as a gift, so we wore the shower cap around all night, trading it off between girls. Finally the bride to be ended up getting sick into the shower cap on the ride home… It had a good life.

  10. So, I have never actually been a part of a bachelorette party, but I host them all the time! Wine tour bachelorette parties in Boston. My sister is getting married next September (She just bought her dress on Saturday… it is breathtaking!!)… I am the maid of honor and I am scared as hell! I want it to be perfect. She is having a mega huge wedding (I, of course, am the 30 year old, older sister that has yet to find the ‘one’ and will most likely want a tiny destination wedding) I’m curious what peoples thoughts are regarding destinations/themes??? It looks like you all had a fabulous time! I sort of want to take the bridal party (8 of us) to NYC… but is it more realistic to stay local in Bostonia?? I am majorly stressing out about planning the bach party! Have you ever had to do this???

  11. looks like you had a blast. can you believe i have never been to Mohegan Sun, I’ve been wanting to go. really need to head there soon, but the price of that hotel is ridiculous most of the time. the restaurant and lounge look so nice.

    what i remember from a recent bachelorette party – i’d say hanging in the pool and doing shots, that was FUN!

  12. What a fun bachelorette party! I always had that problem with the champagne until someone told me recently all you have to do is unscrew the top like a coke bottle, it works! So much easier than trying to “pop” it 🙂

  13. I have yet to be at a either one! So I guess I would say it was the sort of my unintentional bachelorette bash that occurred when my best friend and I went for a trip to LA. We ended up at Santa Monica Pier and were on the ferris wheel when everyone below us started rushing to the beach: Jack Johnson was throwing a surprise performance. THAT was an amazing night!

  14. I’ve never been to a bachelorette party (yet), but hearing about other people’s always makes me think about what I’ll want for mine one day. I think a weekend away where I can get the best of both world- a little bit of relaxation, and a little bit of partying. Looks like this weekend had just that.

  15. My fave part of my bachelorrette party weekend was the second night! The first night we all got wild so we were hurting on Day 2. After dinner on Day 2 everyone was moving real slow and kind of thinking we might just stay in. Luckily two of my wild friends said “GO OUT OR BUST” so the rest of us got our butts in gear and we headed down to this deserted karaoke bar and had THE BEST time! Workouts aren’t the only time you have to suck it up and get moving!
