When it came time for North Carolina-based life & style blogger Emily Helm's bachelorette party (you may know her better as @enh410), she and her besties headed to Savannah and Tybee Island to celebrate! Besides being within driving distance for most of the crew, Savannah is a hard destination to beat for a girls weekend. Between the loads of southern charm, delicious restaurants and nearby beaches, this is a great spot for anyone's final fling - or in this case, Final Flamingle! :) Once you're done reading, take a peek at our Savannah Bachelorette Party Guide for even more party planning inspiration.
Emily and her bride tribe! Wondering what the deal is with the paper cut out?! One of Emily's bridesmaids couldn't make it due to weather-related flight cancellations, so the girls decided this would be the next best thing to make sure she was still with them in spirit :)
