Tybee Island Bachelorette Party!

Y'all know how much I love a celebration! So a whole weekend dedicated to celebrating one of my best gal pals for her bachelorette in Tybee Island, GA had me over the moon! 
I couldn't help but get giddy over the thought of games, gifts, pink, lace, feathers and fun while we were planning the bachelorette festivities. Mikael is such a special friend and I knew we just had to go all out and make this a special weekend for her. Plus, I had only the best bacheorette weekend in the history of bachelorettes ever and really wanted to pay it forward.
In advance of the weekend, we got a group text and email going with everyone but the bride to figure out all the ways to surprise and delight. I threw out a big list of ideas and here's what we ended up settling on:
  • Customized neon oversized tanks - the one's we're wearing above!
  • A fun twist to her lingerie shower (see more below!)
  • A checklist of things for her to do on our big night out
  • Dinner reservations in Savannah on Saturday 
  • A pub crawl via the Savannah Slow Ride before dinner
  • Most meals at the condo
  • Printed pictures of her hung all over the condo
  • Pre-arranged taxi service to take us from Tybee to Savannah
Upon arriving in Tybee we decided to stop for lunch and drinks at AJs Dockside. It was so bright, islandy and fun! 

Then we headed to the condo and had Mikael step out while we hung her lingerie from the ceiling, hung up funny pics and laid out the tanks for her to see for the first time. Everyone brought an app and we munched on all of those goodies for dinner.
For the lingerie, we hung it up for fun and then had her guess which girls bought her which lingerie. It was crazy how accurate she was haha!
The pictures were so fun to look at, reminisce and get some good chuckles from that weekend.
That night, we donned our tanks and went out to a few bars in Tybee where we danced the night away. 
Saturday we woke up and headed to the beach and pool for the day. 
We then got ready and headed into Savannah for our Slow Ride Pub Crawl! The bride wore the most perfect white dress and we all wore black with fun accessories. 
It was so fun to see Savannah from the seat of the bike/bar. It was even better to take pit stops at fun places for drinks in between. In Savannah you can drink anywhere with an open plastic cup, so we were able to carry our cocktails with us along the way. I mean, you have to have a refreshing drink while pedaling that thing (although, really its not much work ha).
There was an hour to kill in between the slow ride and our dinner reservations so we stopped in the Franklin Square area for a drink and to start checking things off her list of bachelorette to-dos!
Dinner that night was at The Florence which is Hugh Acheson's new restaurant in Savannah. When I heard it would be open by the time we were down there, I got so excited! It was great for our group too because they have everything from pizzas to full entrees. Plus, the rooftop bar was pretty great before we went down for dinner.
The menu was so amazing, it was really hard to choose what to get! The menu changes often, but trust me when I say you can't go wrong! Here's some peeks at what we ordered...
What a fun weekend it was! I rode the train home early on Sunday morning and was just happy I made it to the station before it was all aboard by 8am! I can't wait to stand by this pretty lady's side come December and was so happy we got this time together with some of her closest gal pals to celebrate her upcoming nuptials to Ty Ty!
What are some other fun bachelorette party ideas?!
