Planning the perfect weekend with your girls can be a little tricky! Whether it be a bachelorette trip, birthday weekend, or just a girls getaway, there is only so much time to plan the itinerary top to bottom! There are ways to go about saving money and splurging on certain things as well.
My sister’s bachelorette trip was over St. Patrick’s Day weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana. We wanted to save money on the room so we could go shopping and eat at some really great places. We booked with Airbnb and it was just a short Uber ride to the French Quarter which ended up being perfect for us. While splitting the Uber ride each time we used it, it saved lots of dollars rather than having to park somewhere each time we wanted to visit downtown.
Our trip was only about two days long, Friday night we got ready and went to dinner and then walked around the French Quarter, going in and out of a few places. Saturday morning we threw Lauren’s lingerie shower, it was the perfect time to do the shower because we set up a bubbly bar and had mimosas! After a long day of shopping, we got dinner and visited the French Quarter one last time before returning home on Sunday after getting beignets of course.
Most people think the decorations are the most complicated part of a bachelorette party but they are definitely easier than most think! We split up the decor and just assigned certain things to different girls in the group. Party favors, signs, balloons, photo backdrop, snacks, mixes, and utensils are usually the main things needed to plan the girls weekend perfectly! We had themes for the two nights we were there, Friday night was 70’s themed and Saturday night we each wore black while the bride wore white. One of the bridesmaids made matching shirts for all of us and they were super cute!
Planning a girls weekend is so much fun, and not too expensive!
