My Best Friend's Wedding: Bachelorette Party

A couple weekends ago we went out for my best friend's bachelorette party.  It was my job to plan it so I asked the other girls to keep our plans a secret until the very last minute.  We kidnapped the bride on a Friday evening and she didn't know where we were going until we entered our suite in the beautiful Appalachian mountains!

Gigi's cupcakes enjoyed during the lingerie shower.

 Plates and napkins for the shower.
 Bride to be opening her shower gifts.
 More shower gifts.
I planned a wine tour for our Saturday activity.  The bride had her very own tasting glass.
 Touring a vineyard.
 The first winery had a very sweet sign welcoming us to their facility.  They set up a great barbeque buffet for us for lunch.
 Wine tasting and appetizers were served under a tent in the vineyard.
Kappa Delta's celebrating with the bride.

 Here is a photo of the future bride wearing her sash.  We had dinner reservations at a swanky restaurant that was an early 1900s bank.  Our group had the bank vault as our own private area.  Afterwards we went out for cocktails (and those photos are not going on the internet).
We had a great time.  I'd recommend Travels by Wine in Hendersonville, NC to any group.  The wineries we visit don't distribute so we were able to get great local wine that we can't just buy at the grocery.  Every girl in our group bought a bottle for a gift basket that was given to the happy couple to enjoy - Western NC really has some unexpectedly good wine.
