Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette Edition


Wedding Wednesday is back!! This past weekend, I went to Sunset Beach to celebrate a very special bride-to-be, Jesse! I have known Jesse since we were itty bitty and lived in the same neighborhood. We've stayed best friends for almost 20 years now and I am so excited to watch her marry her high school sweetheart in December on the beaches of Sarasota, Florida! 

After a grueling 7 hour drive, I finally made it to the beach house we were staying at. It was the cutest house I've ever seen and was a mere 2 minute walk from the beach. After arriving, I spent a few hours catching up with Jesse and the other girls before getting ready and going to dinner. 


The hosts of the weekend, Jesse's sister, Katie, and sister-in-law, English made the sweetest gift bags with these fabulous monogrammed cups to welcome us for the weekend! 


Dinner was great and us girls had the best time getting to know one another. 



Later, we went back to the beach house for games, snacks, and the lingerie party. Jesse's sister-in-law, English, had set up the cutest table for sweets and cake! 









English and Katie also came up with the most fun games that kept us laughing all night long. First, we did a panty toss where we, of course, let Jesse win ;)




 Next, we played the panty guess game! Each guest bought a pair of undies that we put into a bag without the Bride-To-Be knowing. She then had to pull out each pair and guess who it was from! This was absolutely hilarious and it was so funny to see each person's personality from the panties she brought. 


I was the LAST person she expected to give her these! 
Next up, was lingerie! I like to go for one fun piece, one practical piece, and of course an Essie nail polish from the recent bridal collection. I gave Jesse a black baby doll, a pink lace and gray tank dress by Jessica Simpson, and the shade  "tying the knottie." 



The next morning, I went and sat on the beach to soak in God's glory and creation and thank him for such an awesome weekend with my childhood friend. He truly is such a good God!! After breakfast at a sweet and southern diner, I hit the road to head back to Florida. 



I'm so glad I was able to celebrate this fun weekend!! I can't wait to see how beautiful the wedding will be :)
