We just had my bachelorette party in VEGAS! It was pretty far away/pricey for the girls from the East Coast but they are the ones who suggested it and they used it as an excuse for a mini-vacation. Some good girlfriends flew from Vancouver to join us as well.
Ready for Vegas – my nails on the plane:)
Here is me and one of my crazy maids meetnig at the airport!
We stayed at the Cosmopolitan for 3 nights and it was so fun:)
View from our Terrace Suite – gorgeous, super spacious room with 2 bathrooms and a balcony on the top floors, it was actually bigger than my apartment in Vancouver! View from our room:
I had to tell a few of them NO PENISES, NO STRIPPERS and I know there was some disappointment. Like a few of you have said, I am 30 now and I went through all that drunken fun in my 20’s and I have no need for it anymore, I just wanted to have a classy time with my best girls. I didn’t wear a sash/tiara or anything cause it wasn’t me – I did wear a fun white dress on the Saturday official bachelorette night though. My Maid/Matron of Honor said she tried to find me a cute birdcage to wear that night but had no luck – oh well! There were SOOO many bachelorette parties there that weekend – a lot of them decked out in full penis and pink sash glory! I actually thought one bridal party was super cute, they were all dressed in sexy black dresses with blue wigs, and the bride in white with a veil – I maybe would have done that but I just didn’t want to look too tacky with penises everywhere (to each their own!)
The first night we dressed up and went to a little Mexican place called La Comida which had just opened in old Vegas – it was actually the best resturant we went to all weekend! Service was awesome, food was great, we did shots – good times:) We went to the Marquee bar after at our hotel for some drinks by the pool but most of the girls went to bed fairly early because of the time difference and their long flights.
My amazing bridal party: My Maid/Matron of Honor and little sister, my bff from calgary, me in the middle, my bff from NS, and my awesome brunette 7 months preggers BFF who came out and still had an amazing time with us – doesn’t she look amazing?!
The second day we had an amazing brunch at the Wicked Spoon, with unlimited Mimosas, where they served BONE MARROW at the buffet?! ha I tried some on bread – nothing to write home about….
then hit up a pool party at Boulevard – it was pretty wild and fun partying in our bikinis:)
another of my crazy dancing maids and me in my fringe bikini:)
The girls surprised me with some underwear game where each of them had bought a pair of underwear for me and I had to guess who had bought which one based on the style – it was fun while we drank some champagne in the room:)
Then out to our “fancy” italian bachelorette dinner D.O.C.G. – a little cheaper than some other places but was supposed to have amazing food based on reviews. Food was great but service was TERRIBLE and I would never go back FYI. NEVER!
I LOVED my little white bachelorette dress from BCBG! I will definately be wearing it for the rehearsal dinner too:) Not sure why my 2 other friends from Vancouver wore white too when they were supposed to wear colors – divas haha.
Then we went to Club XS at the Wynn in a limo, and partied till LATE with some guys we knew who were on a bachelor party and had bottle service – super fun until I got a little tipsy and left my phone in the washroom and it was stolen:( oh well! I am just sad I don’t have all the pictures from the phone I took from that night, as I was the one taking most of them, and the night was so fun!
Drinks in the limo:
Sunday we walked the strip a bit, played some slot machines, did a bit of shopping and went to the chill Bamboo pool after. We ate at PF Changs and then went to XBurlesque to satisfy some of the girls who needed strippers on the trip – the dancers were super athletic and had some amazing moves but for sure more of a rocking strip show than any type of traditional burlesque! My sister, who is pretty conservative, was a little disgusted by it all I found out after – but she held her tongue, and I for one had a good time!
Everyone was feeling so tired from drinking and being in the sun all weekend that we went to bed at midnight the last night after the show to catch our flights the next day:) It was a really great weekend and I was so happy all my bridesmaids were able to make it, since I live so far away from them and never get to see them:) Now I can’t wait to party with everyone at the wedding!!!:)
