My sister and my friends have done all of the planning and they've left me out of it, which is exactly how I wanted it to be. My friends live all over the place so the only tricky part was going to be picking a destination. For this part, I obviously gave some input.
My first thought was a little lofty:
What's not to love about a girls weekend spent drinking wine in Napa, with a quick stop in one of my favorite cites, San Francisco?
The price. That's what. Flights and hotels, even AirBnBs were too expensive so we ruled this one out almost immediately.
So then we toyed with the idea of Scottsdale.
I went there for my friend Kate's bach just a few months ago and had a great time. Plus, my BM Tyeler is from Scottsdale so she could show us the ropes. But then someone told us Scottsdale would be way too hot in June. I'm not scared of hot weather by any means, but this idea got nixed as well.
At this point I was just tempted to do Chicago. Why not?
Chicago is an awesome city in the summer. We could rent a boat, play by the beach, have a fun spa day at The Wit followed by drinks on their roof top after. I don't usually treat myself to spa days, but a bachelorette is the perfect time to do something like that I figured. I actually just got my first facial at The Wit a few weeks ago and it was absolutely amazing. Even today, I can still see the improvements it did for my skin. On the way out I asked if they do large party spa days and they said of course. A day of champagne and getting pampered is something I could get on board with...
I'm not really a penis necklace kind of girl, so I've made a strict request for no genitalia accessories. However, no one likes a stick in the mud either. So I am game for whatever comes my way.
Luckily my friend/BM Kam lives in Austin so she's got some fun spots picked out, but if you have suggestions for anything Austin let me know!
Where should we go? What should we eat? How do we get around since Uber isn't there anymore?! Tell me all of the things.
