Bachelorette Weekend Reivew

 

Ok ladies I survived my bachelorette trip - haha! It was an amazing weekend with my girls. I went with my two maids of honour and the one bridesmaid that is in Toronto. 

 

We left early Saturday morning and our first stop was "The Pie Plate" in Niagara on the Lake for brunch and dessert. It was really good especially because it was the first time I had sugar, gluten and dairy in almost a month! I've actually been wanting to try this place for a while now. Every time we go to Niagara on the Lake, I point it out but we've never gone in. Without knowing this one of my maids of honour picked it out on her own - perfect!

 

We then drove to Niagara Falls and checked into our hotel. Stop #2 was spa treatments at the Double Tree Aveda Spa. So relaxing. I had a Baltic Body Mud Masque. We went back to our hotel and got ready for dinner. 

 

Stop #3 was dinner at the Keg at the Embassy Suites on the 9th floor, which has an amazing view of the falls. My girls told them that it was for a bachelorette party so they gave us a great table with a perfect view of the falls!

My girls got me a disco ball cup! It was awesome! People kept asking me where I got it. A group of drunk women in their 50s wanted to steal it from me. lol!

Stop #4 we went back to the hotel room to get ready for evening portion. They bought some games to play which involved drinking shots - ugh! Sugary shots at that....such a recipe for disaster. Luckily I brought this electrolyte booster to have while we were drinking and it really helped!!

Several shots later  :blink:  we ventured out to Stop #5 (most of these stops were a surprise but had a feeling of where we were going for this one). They took me to "Peppermints" in Niagara Falls ...luckily you are not allowed to take photos in there. Lots and lots of embarrassment happened in this place.

 

After my moment on stage (my friends paid for me to go up there...) we finished our round of drinks and we all looked at each other and said "I think we're done here" lol! Stop #6 was dancing at "Seven". I saw a couple who were married earlier that day and the groom came over to me and asked when I was getting married. He took the rose from his lapel and gave it to me. He said "This flower brought me good luck today and I hope it does for you too." It was really sweet!

Stop #7 - late night fries at Denny's before we went to bed :)

 

The next day we checked out of the hotel and drove back to Niagara on the Lake for our last stop (Stop #8) High Tea at the "Prince of Wales Hotel". It was a nice juxtaposition to peppermints the night before. haha!

@snswedding2016 wow! Looks like your girls did an amazing job with your bachelorette party.

Ps. It brought tears to my eyes when I read a groom gave you his rose as good luck - so adorable!

Sounds like you had a fun bachelorette ;) 

 

I laughed at peppermints.. and immediately thought of how it made us feel the same way. We giggled the entire time.

 

So cute that a groom gave you the rose from his lapel!!

Oh Steph - I'm sorry for everything you've been through. You've really had it all, haven't you? I'm glad you've been able to stay positive (just little meltdowns lol) and not be a true bridezilla! The groomsman stuff just blew me away. I don't get some people. Even being married twice I've never been through that lol I agree - just buy the stupid pants and shut up about it!!

 

I can't even imagine how hard it was to cancel both your mom's trip and Sean's parents too. I know how hurt Doug and I were when his parents opted out of Jamaica when we got married and the reason wasn't even health related. You're so right - your mom's health is paramount and elderly parents on their own in strange surroundings, one with some dementia is a recipe for trouble, so as hard as it was it was right. Worrying about permanent resident cards is stress enough when it's under normal circumstances never mind adding the stress of trying to get it done for a wedding. This way it's not critical right now. What you've planned for your legal wedding sounds so romantic and so special - both sets of parents will love it and I know having all that time to devote solely to them will be super special. You'll remember it for years to come and so will they!

 

I LOVE the flower and hair pics, especially #3 of the hair. That would look so gorgeous on you!!!! Your dress will be stunning with it all put together!

 

I love everything your girls put together for your bachelorette! Looks like it was a ton of fun! Love the pics!!! And imagine a groom giving you a flower! That sounds like one lucky lady that married him and I think it will mean your marriage will be very special! Two questions lol  We spend a lot of time in both Niagara on the Lake and NF and I'm not familiar with the pie place or peppermints.....  not sure I should really ask about the latter... But the pie place I'm curious about. We already have our hotel booked for January for the Icewine Festival so somewhere different to eat while we're there would be nice.

 

Hopefully I can be there Friday. I'll see how I feel by then.

 

ha ha @Wafflesmom @calgarybride2015  The "support" thread would probably be an appropriate spot!! (sorry, couldn't resist)


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
