Best CHS Bachelorette Weekend Ideas


One of the questions I get DM'd about the most on Instagram is, "What should I do for my bachelorette party in Charleston?"  I've given this one a LOT of thought, so I have a great round-up of ideas that I think you and your girls will love.  Also be sure to get in touch if you want to set up a private sip & shop or workshop at our store, Cannonborough Collective!

Enjoy a Group Activity

One of the best ways to really create some memories with your bride tribe is with a fun group activity. You can find lots of workshops offered around town, or create your own private event or spa day!  Below are a few of my faves:


Group Workouts

Bachelorette Yoga with Serenity Tree Yoga

Private Barre Class at Barre South

Pamper Yourselves!

Dry Bar for blow outs or braids

Mylk Bar for Manis/Pedis (cutest nail salon for a group!)

Learn a Little

Flower Crown Class by Petaloso

Candle Making Class at Candlefish


Wine & Dine

There are SO many restaurants to choose from in this foodie haven of ours!  Here are my recommendations for the best restaurants to accommodate larger groups.  

Harold's Cabin // Rarebit // Miller's All Day // The Watch

Elevé at The Grand Bohemian // Butcher & Bee // Lewis BBQ

A Progressive Girl's Night Out on Hutson's Alley

Nestled in the cutest little alley is a swanky trifecta of awesome restaurants.  Known as "Huston's Alley, you'll find Michaels on the Alley, The Victor Social Club, and Vincent Chicco's.  This is a great place to make an evening of it with the gals, from happy hour to dessert!  I highly recommend starting with a drink at Victors, then pick a restaurant and get an appetizer and the other for dinner.  Everything we tried was delicious, but the calamari was my favorite!

Girl's Night Out(fit)

I paired my white Betty B LaRoque top with some of last year's capris.  Shop Borough made sure we all had cute clutches and we rocked some lovely jewels from Cristina V



Girl's Night Out in Charleston: The Dewberry

Fall is in full swing, and I've decided to make the changing season be a good reason to usher changes into my life in general.  While I'm starting to focus on getting ready for the holiday hustle & bustle, I'm also going to be working hard to prioritize more time for family and friends.  I have a pretty tough boss who has been having me work a lot this summer (A.K.A me!), and I got in the habit of not shutting down enough on evenings and weekends.  I'm ready for more husband time, cool morning walks, and quality girl time.  The Dewberry is one of my new favorite places to connect with some gals for cocktails or indulge in a delicious meal at Henrietta's.  Libby Williams perfectly captured the essence of our recent lady date, full of old-fashioned vibes thanks to our Dandy Boutique attire styled by Charleston Shop Curator.  I hope to be back a lot as the weather cools off and we'll be left longing for a fun indoor spot.  Here are 3 things you will adore about this lovely retro hotel:

1. The Decor

Formerly a Federal building (circa 1960's), The Dewberry has been transformed into an intoxicating retreat. The owner, John Dewberry, has painstakingly attended to every last detail of this property and the hotel is 8 years in the making.  Everything you see was intentional to say the least; from the wall coverings to the curated mid-century furniture down to the font that is modeled after his father's signature.  My favorite part of the hotel is in "The Living Room", which is oozing with chic retro decor. 

John Dewberry is the man behind the details like the fabulous brass map behind us.

2. The Food

While great restaurants are still a dime a dozen in Charleston, somehow Henrietta's Brasserie still managed to have all of us ooh-ing and ahh-ing over every last bite.  Ordering the Keegan Fillion Chicken for Two is a no-brainer; it's as satisfying as fried chicken but a lot healthier.  I also loved all of the seafood we had, and everything really exceeded my expectations since this is still a fairly new restaurant.  Read more about our meal on the Plate South blog.

3. The Bar in the Living Room

Before you even taste your first sip, you will be wowed by the bar itself.  It was shipped to Atlanta so it could be clad in brass, and though she be but little she is fierce!  Their offerings include my favorite fall beverage, an old fashioned, as well as a plentiful wine list.  This is a lovely little spot for a date night or to catch up on gossip with the girls, and if the bar is full you have the whole living room to hang out in! 

Both locals and visitors are going to love stepping back into time at this lovely location.  We had such a great time and I really appreciate skirt! magazine's publisher Jenny Dennis getting this lovely group of ladies together!
