The Weekend Itinerary 
What They Did

For Lauren's bachelorette weekend, six of her best friends came together from the north and the south for a weekend packed with classic NOLA food, drinks, dancing and tons of girl-time. Since not all of Lauren's friends had met each other before, this was the perfect weekend for all her bridesmaids to get to know each other before the wedding. 

Friday
• Arrive in NOLA and head to the hotel (the MOH arrived early to decorate)
• Explore Bourbon street while sipping on Mardi Gras Daiquiris 
• Lunch at Louisiana Bistro (pro tip: order the bbq shrimp!) 
• Pit-stop at the hotel to change and get ready for dinner 
• Dinner in little black dresses at the iconic Broussard's 
• Bar and club-hopping (and so much dancing!) on Bourbon Street 

Saturday
•  Breakfast in matching NOLA tees at The Ruby Slipper Cafe (where Lauren's fiance proposed!) 
•  Drinks and photo ops on Bourbon Street
•  Afternoon at the local Freret Street Festival with local food, art and music
•  Pit-stop at the hotel to change, play games and catch up! 
•  Hurricane and appetizers at the hotel bar
•  Bar-hopping on Bourbon Street
•  Late night beignets at Cafe Du Monde

The Bachelorette Pad
Where They Stayed

Lauren and her #beyhive called the Marriott on Canal Street their home for the weekend! Located in the French Quarter and just a few two blocks away from Bourbon Street, the hotel was situated perfectly for Lauren's bachelorette party HQ. They were easily able to walk to all the fun on Bourbon Street and head back to the hotel to change and get ready for dinner without ever having to hop in an Uber. And can we talk about how cute the decorations are?! Major bach party goals!
