Melissa's Bachelorette Party

Melissa’s Bachelorette Party was over the weekend in Las Vegas. You know it’s L.A’s backyard playground. The whole weekend was so so so much fun! I planned the whole event myself. I was so proud of myself on how it turned out. Everyone called me the time nazi because I was on everyone’s ass about getting ready and going to places on time. We stayed at the Harrah’s. Nai, Shanna, Monica and I got to Vegas early on Friday. The rest of the girls didn’t arrive until about 2 a.m on Friday night/Saturday morning. We still managed to go out and stay up until 5 a.m! Sin City never sleeps.

We went to the spa at Aria Saturday afternoon. Let me tell you that the Aria Spa was one of the best decisions I made for the weekend! Since it was a bachelorette party we got a discount. It was only $20 for the day spa access. I mean originally it’s $30 – which is still a deal for what they offer. Aria’s Day Spa has hot stone beds, salt rooms for you to relax in, steam room, sauna, hot and cold jaccuzis! They provided unlimited water, juices, nuts and fruits for you to snack on. When you’re done with your day, they provide showers with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shaving cream, disposable razors, disposable tooth brushes, mouth wash, hair spray, hair gel, mousse, hairbrushes, combs, towels, hair dryers, curling irons, straightening irons – you name it! They provided everything for you to get ready with minus the make ups. Everyone was so pleased with the spa!

After the spa we ate at the buffet at Harrah’s. The best thing about the buffet, I got to see my friend Ian! It’s been like two years since I’ve last seen him. I also got to meet his adorable girlfriend! He lives in the Bay Area now so I definitely visit him. After the buffet, we all got readied to go to 1 Oak Nightclub inside the Mirage. We had bottle service – which was really nice since we had our place to sit and drinks were included. We even had security to escort us to the restroom if we wanted!

I literally ran on 4 hours of sleep and my crazy ass drove back to L.A right after the club at 4 a.m. Nai, Shanna, and Monica slept. I got home in 3 hours with making 2 restroom stops. Haha I was driving really fast!  I was dreading the traffic and I wanted to leave as soon as we woke up. But I figured since I was still up, I might as well start the journey. Plus Nai had a flight at 2:30 and I thought we should get back sooner than later.

So below are the pictures from the weekend – mostly rated PG. *wink wink* I made two banners to put up in the two hotel rooms that we got. One said “He put a ring on it” It’s kind of an inside joke with us. Because Melissa used to always dance to Beyonce’s Single Ladies. But now she can’t cuz he put a ring on it. Lol. The other banner said “Last fling before the ring.” It was kind of the theme of the weekend.

Each girl got a gift bag. I personalized each tote bag. Inside the tote bags was an emergency kit with hair ties, bobby pins, safety pins, antibacterial wipes, condom(being that this is a bachelorette party – something naughty was needed!), tylonels. Also had a makeup bag, tissue, and an acrylic tumbler. I know I forgot to take pictures of the contents inside.

I also made everyone personalized wine glasses for us to toast with. I got some pink moscato. But of course, I forgot a wine opener. So we didn’t end up toasting. The wine glass became another gift.

Another thing I made that I was so proud was Melissa’s veil! I knew she wouldn’t keep it on very long so I decided to make it with the tulles that I already had. It turned out really cute. I will have a tutorial post on how I made it. Because I took pictures during the process. Melissa was a good sport with wearing the veil and the “bride-to-be” sash. She made fun of herself and said “I’m THAT girl that I make fun of” lol
