We did it! My friend Sarah Beth and I planned THE best bachelorette weekend in New Orleans for our sweet bride Sadie. I have only visited New Orleans in college for fraternity formals – which is less than ideal (trust me) and it honestly put a bad taste in my mouth about the city. I am so happy to tell you that on this trip, I loved exploring the other side of New Orleans that goes beyond Bourbon Street. I am going to give you all of the details including our itinerary, decor and links to it all!
We had about 13 girls coming on this bachelorette weekend so we needed to find a large Airbnb that would fit us all and this one was PERFECT. It was located on Magazine Street which was in a very walkable area to local restaurants and shopping. There was a coffee shop just two streets down and then in the other direction were so many other local gems. Here is the link to Our Airbnb and here is another similar option Other Airbnb Option.
DECORATIONS + THEME
Sadie is a hippie at heart and truly just a ray of sunshine so our theme was Dazed + Engaged with Sadie Jones! We were able to find so many cute things to decorate with on Amazon and Etsy. We had balloons blown up at Party City and a friend Stephanie painted the sign to go along with the theme. I loved these custom cups and disco table runner from Etsy that we used. I also got these adorable hangover kit bags that I filled with Liquid IV, Advil, makeup wipes, gold eye patches and candy.
OTHER NOLA PLACES TO GO
Sarah Beth and I did have a day before and a day after the trip to explore and stay with our friend Julia who lives in New Orleans! We went to a few places that are definitely a must for your trip.
I hope this helps if you have NOLA as a future travel or bachelorette destination! Pin one of the images below to Pinterest and share.
