The fashion and lifestyle guru shares the details, plus her best bachelorette party tips.
Being from the UK and living in the US definitely has its perks—especially when you have two very close groups of girlfriends in both places, that insist on throwing you separate, surprise bachelorette parties! A few months back I had my first 'hen' weekend with my best friends in England, heading north to my bridesmaid Suzie's house in the gorgeous Lincolnshire countryside, walking through the meadows and visiting her horses, drinking Bloody Marys at a traditional pub lunch, and having our very own black tie gala on Saturday night (plus some other cheeky stuff I am not going to write about. Ha!).
And just a couple weeks ago I had my American bachelorette, where my bridesmaid Anita organized a weekend in Santa Barbara's wine country, complete with vineyard tours (obvs), some pool time at a rental house, and line dancing with cowboys!
I was so lucky to have both experiences, and they were each so memorable and wonderful, I want to do them again from start to finish. I'm full of ideas for other brides and bridesmaids, on how to host the most epic bachelorette experience. Read below for my tips!
