Immediately following Nikki's bridal shower it was time for the bachelorette party. Everybody involved in the wedding has had a crazy summer...tons of weddings across the board. It made sense to combine Nikki's shower and bachelorette party into one weekend so no one had to plan for multiple weekends. I think it worked out perfectly! For a while we were planning a girl's weekend in Charlotte. Fancy restaurants and bar hopping in cute little party dresses. Once Nikki and I started to plan it though she realized she really preferred something more low-key. Since she recently left Raleigh and moved to Hickory she wanted an atmosphere that catered towards conversation, fun, and a good old fashioned slumber party. I think she had a blast!
Nikki's new house has a pool which is amazing. Justin strung twinkle lights over the pool before the party and they had pool floats, music, and drinks. We had a great time by the pool for most of the afternoon until dinner.
After some pool time everybody started getting cleaned up for dinner. There is a Mexican restaurant right down the street from Nikki's house that is one of the best in Hickory and serves $2 margaritas. It was an easy choice :)
The rest of the night we showered Nikki in gifts and played a fun game that was perfect for a bachelorette party. I hope Nikki felt loved after this weekend. She is amazing and has awesome friends. I loved hanging out with everybody and can't wait until the wedding!
