Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette Party/Lingerie Shower

Four out of my five bridesmaids lived out of state, so I didn't want to have a traditional bachelorette party weekend. I knew that would be too much to ask of my bridesmaids to travel all the way to NC for a weekend and then come back for the wedding a month or two later.

Instead, the Thursday before my wedding, my bridesmaids and some local girlfriends and I went out to dinner and my Maid of Honor threw me a lingerie shower afterwards. We had so much fun and it was definitely my idea of a good time!




These were the favors, Red Hot candies with this tag attached. So cute!

I had a great time with my friends, they made me feel so special and loved. And I got enough lingerie to last a lifetime! 

Love Always, Nancy J
Wedding Wednesday

  5. Aww these are so cute! I love this idea. And I agree with you...don't make your bridesmaids come from out of town twice (unless they really want to). This looks like it was so much fun!

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks Kristyn! Yeah, my bridesmaids lived many hours away from NC (Texas, Michigan, and Alabama). Plane tickets and gas prices were just too expensive for them to make the trip twice. But that means that we have a ton of fun when we're all together!

  7. Those favors are so clever, I love it! How fun to do it the Thursday before the wedding! I totally agree with your decision as all of my bridesmaids live in different states, too! We're smushing the shower with family and the bachelorette that night with just my bridesmaids. I like the Thursday idea, though! I wish I had thought of that!

    1. Thanks Mary, it did work out really well, but I would have loved if some of my bridesmaids could have made it to one of my other showers too. I'm glad your bridesmaids will be able to attend your shower too.

  8. Great idea! I haven't technically chosen my bridesmaids yet, but with our wedding being in my hometown I know they will be all spread out. I have considered a bridal tea/luncheon just prior to the wedding so that it will be easier to have them all in one space. Not sure what I'll do yet though. Looks like you had a great party :)

    1. I had a bridal tea with my bridesmaids too (I'll do a post on that in the next couple of weeks). We had it Friday afternoon, before our rehearsal dinner. I also invited my Mom and some of my female family members who were coming in from out of town. It was fun to include them in some of the wedding festivities too. Because it would have been super embarrassing to have my Mom at my lingerie shower! #awkward
