New Orleans Bachelorette: Beads, Beignets & Bubbly
In our 2018 bachelorette party study, New Orleans ranked eighth on the list for the most popular bachelorette party destinations... and we can totally know why! Between the mouth-watering cajun cuisine, vibrant culture and countless bars and clubs, NOLA will not disappoint as a bachelorette party destination. So, when it came time for bride-to-be Dania to celebrate her final fling, she and her eight besties packed their bags and headed to The Big Easy! The bonus? Most of the crew (including the bride) lives in Dallas, making it an easy spot for the girls to get to. Want to see what the girls did? READ ON!
SWOON! How gorgeous are these girls?! Dania and her bride tribe had their make up done and then spent an afternoon in City Park for a professional photoshoot - LOVE this idea.
