A Lazy Ladies Weekend

A few weeks back, I had my bachelorette party. While some girls dream of dressing up in fancy night clothes and having a night on the town drinking and dancing, this idea is far from appealing to me. All I wanted for my bachelorette party was to spend a weekend with my favorite ladies, in a house in the mountains by a lake, just relaxing. Good friends, good food, good times. This was all I requested, and my MOH and bridesmaids did not disappoint.

The first weekend of December, 15 ladies traveled from Miami, Boston, New York, Philadelphia and the surrounding areas to the Poconos to spend a relaxing bachelorette weekend with me. It was everything I wanted, and I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. We spent most of the weekend laying about in our comfy clothes & PJs, eating and drinking, chatting and catching up on all of our lives. We did make a day trip to the outlet shops to get out of the house for a bit, and paid homage to all bachelorette parties by watching Magic Mike.

We had gorgeous snowy scenes like this to wake up to in the morning:


We spent most of our time gathered in the kitchen around the island
Or at the kitchen table
We didn’t play any typical bachelorette party games, but there was plenty of Cards Against Humanity

And there was about 15 minutes where I was donned with every single bachelorette veil/sash/tiara that has ever been worn by any/all of the girls. It looked something like this:

I think I’m wearing four tiaras, two sashes, a veil, a badge and a lei with an enormous bride chalice to drink out of—classy.

So those are the highlights of my comfy, cozy bachelorette weekend, and while it’s not the traditional bachelorette party—it was the best weekend ever, and I am so lucky to have the best friends anyone could ask for!

Anyone else have a non-traditional bachelorette party?

    I love you with all the sashes and crowns and everything! We went away for a weekend sadly with the distance of many of my girls only 5 could make it. We rented a house in Charlottesville, VA. I didn’t want to be out crazy all night either. We got in Friday had dinner with my FMIL and her partner (as they live in the area) at a nice brew pub. Then went back to the house and put on PJs had some drinks and watched chick flicks. The next day we spent wine tasting and enjoying a nice outdoor lunch at another brew pub. Again also very laid back.

    We each had a small button with our roll in the wedding but nothing else crazy. After the tastings we went home and at junk food and sampled some of our purchases from the day. Sunday was a big breakfast before people headed home. It was perfect! Our house was adorable and the weather was perfect.

    This looks like the perfect bachelorette weekend, Miss Lyre! Homey, relaxing, with great company. I still haven’t seen Magic Mike, hahaha.

    I love it!! This is something I want too – I don’t drink, not even close, and I hate being pressured into drinking by people at bars. I’m still deciding what would be an amazing bachelorette party for me and my girls but yeah, I definitely don’t want party hardy. Nice homage with the Magic Mike by the way :)

    Magic Mike is a bachelorette party staple! We played Cards Against Humanity too, and I just ordered it for Mr. W for Christmas – so.much.fun. Sounds like such a comfy, fun weekend getaway with the girls!

    Your bachelorette looks so fun and laid-back! I’m not really into huge intense partying either and this definitely sounds like a great alternative (and super-comfy!) 😀

    That sounds fantastic, I’d rather have this than bar hopping, but that’s me 😉
