Disco Bachelorette Party to Catalina Island- a photo diary

This past weekend I had the chance to throw my girlfriend’s bachelorette party!! We chose to spend the weekend in Catalina Island and it was absolutely beautiful. Here’s a little photo diary of the weekend and I’ll break down items purchased and will link them as we go!

+ itinerary I made online myself and printed on shiny cardstock- I downloaded a pdf version that I texted to everyone a month ago, and then I printed them for everyone to have in their goodie bags.

+ shirts we ordered from Etsy; ItsAnAestheticCo , we added her custom wording option because we had girls in our party that aren’t bridesmaids in the wedding, so we wanted something different than your standard “Bridesmaid” logos. We went with ” I love the Bride” on the party shirts and on the brides, we put “I’m the Bride.” They came out great and are such great quality!

Let’s breakdown the decor- I legit had two LARGE suitcases and a duffle bag that I hauled to Catalina with me to make sure I had the place decorated to the T! I’m fully aware that I tend to go over the top with these things, but it just makes me so happy!

+ letter to the future Mrs : at my bachelorette party, my girlfriend had my (now) husband, write me a letter addressed to “The Future Mrs. Franco,” it was such an emotional touch to add to the weekend and one that I’ll never forget. SO I had to make Steph’s fiance do the same thing to leave on the bed for her.

Alright, we’ve officially completed all the DETAILS of the weekend! Our first night, we played games in the Airbnb, made pizzas, and just listened to music and hung out the entire night. The second day, we bar hopped, toured the island in a golf cart, had lunch, and then went back to the house to get ready for out night out!

Night two, we had a nice dinner before hitting a karaoke bar! Where we literally shut the place down. Because our theme was disco, we had everyone dress up in their best “disco” fits! It was so much fun and our bride had a blast! Which is really the most important part!

I’d highly suggest planning a disco themed party if you haven’t!
