Let your light shine
What a joy it has been to help plan and to help create a fun-filled weekend for my best girl, Savannah! Her MOH/sister, her mother, her cousins and aunts, the bridal crew and myself wanted to give her something big to remember as her last fling before the ring! A few of us came up with her Havana Nights theme several months ago over a late night cousin + coffee sesh. The idea originated around the time of her engagement when the pop song "Havana Ooh-Na-Na" hit the charts! Hence, "Savannah" Ooh-Na-Na!! We knew that we wanted it to be a surprise for her! It has been torture for our bride-to-be, but oh so entertaining for us as we discussed, crafted and shopped all in great spirits for her grand reveal!
Our stay was in Destin, Florida right in the center of all the local hot spots. Our beach house was just a few steps from the sandy beach and emerald Gulf Coast that we have been craving since the start of our planning! Six bedrooms and four baths was more than enough to accommodate each of us!
We booked our stay from Thursday to Sunday! Some of us were arriving Thursday at different times throughout the day, while others arrived Friday! Friday and Saturday were mapped out. Each night had its own celebratory event.
Friday was designated for her Lingerie Shower. We decided to theme it a PJ party! We had shrimp tacos, chips + salsa, coffee, sweets and a whole lot of sassy fun arranged for this night!
Saturday night was the night we were going to hit the town! We reserved a table for 13 at Tommy Bahamas! (BEST FOOD & DECISION WE HAD MADE) It was absolutely delicious and so fitting to our theme! Following dinner, we shared a few dances and laughs at AJs! If you are down for a good time, we highly recommend this joint!
Shopping for our Havana themed Bach Bash was exciting yet challenging!
Lets dive right in & talk Swimmies!
I ordered my bright coral and blush swimsuit from Shein! I loved the high-waisted bottoms and wrap, ruffled top! For my accessories, I wore green beaded leaf earrings from Versona!
Luckily, I had the PERFECT second bikini that I purchased from Target last summer! Hot pink, tropical pattern, also, high-waisted = theme approved!! I paired the cutest hot pink beaded bird earrings with it that were, also, from Versona! Generally, finding my swim & beach wear was fairly quick and no task at all!
As I mentioned above, Friday was her Lingerie PJ Party! Moreover, we wanted it to coordinate with her Cuban theme! I found my light blue and coral trimmed pajama set at J. Crew Factory in Tanger! I pulled in our theme with my bold statement bird earrings that I had worn earlier that day on the beach!
Shopping for my Havana Nights outfit was a little bit more challenging! However, I am happy to say that I was completely satisfied and pleased with my end result attire! I purchased my wide leg, pleated pants from Forever 21! They were a website exclusive order! Thank goodness I found them when I did!! My crochet rainbow top came from Blu Spero Boutique in Baton Rouge! Shout out to the ladies at this shop who were so helpful, sweet and just as excited for our weekend to unfold! Lastly, just like the rest of my accessories this weekend, I found my bold, floral earrings and green stone bracelet from Versona that brought the finishing touches to my Cuban inspired look! Though the theme was paradise centered, I loved how the totality of my outfit had a 70s vibe to it!
Furthermore, we had crafted and created every floral headpiece, every decoration and every extra special thing that had went into this bachelorette weekend getaway!
Overall, it has truly been an honor and blessing to be included in every step of my best friend/cousin's wedding festivities! We all are overjoyed for her Big Day at the end of next month! Praying that God continues to shower Savannah and Jacob with His anointing as they make their way to Mr. and Mrs.!
Grateful for the memories made!!
