I had such a fun time at my bachelorette party. It started with a mani-pedi with my then soon-to-be sister-in-law and my mom.
My bridesmaids wore purple shirts (our wedding color) that said “Bride’s Besties” on them, and I wore a white shirt with “Future Mrs. Petty” on it in gold glitter lettering (our wedding accent color).
First, we went on a brunch bay cruise in San Francisco with bottomless mimosas, a DJ, delicious food, and even some special complimentary pink drinks to celebrate the occasion! My hashtag was #Amberlee’sLastSailBeforeTheVeil – too cute! We had an amazing view of the bay and the bridge, and got some fun photos.
After the cruise, we walked down the pier and took some more fun photos (my sister-in-law has really come in handy with her camera and photography skills)
Then we came across a fire truck outside of the station. What started as a quick question to the fireman sitting on the bench (we just wanted to take a photo on the truck) turned into an hour with a bunch of firemen! It was hilarious, they took us in and gave us a tour, showed us (and had us get on) both fire boats (not the easiest thing in the world), cracked jokes about who was going to be the biggest trouble maker that night, and then – get this – they fed us freshly baked banana nutella bread. It was delicious. We ducked out before they made us get into their uniforms but we did get some great pictures and I think they really enjoyed the company.
After the firehouse, we stopped for a quick drink.
Then headed to meet up with the boys for a group dinner at Yard House (Cody had his bachelor party on the same day – don’t worry, that post is coming soon).
After dinner each party headed to the hotel where we had separate rooms – my mom had helped decorate mine earlier, and the girls had all written reasons why they loved me and put it in a heart shape on the bathroom mirror – so sweet!
I ended up with a migraine, and one of the other girls ended up not feeling too well at the end of the night either, so we really just relaxed and played a game and pretty much passed out from all of the walking and boat hopping. My bridesmaids and especially my Matron of Honor, my sister-in-law did an amazing job planning a fun but chill day and I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything better than to be surrounded by my best friends, drinks, and the ocean.
