As the maid of honor you need to feel like, “I’ve got this!” And you do. You were chosen for a reason. You’re trusted, able and ready. So here goes. This is your chance to cement yourself (if you haven’t already) as the best bestie in the history of besties. Planning a bachelorette party is a great opportunity to knock the socks off, not only the bride, but also the entire party. As you know, a big part of planning a perfect bachelorette is about secrecy! Not total secrecy, but enough to make the party a mystery and surprise. Obviously the bride knows the party is coming, but she doesn’t want to know how it’s gonna be. Who knows, maybe she does want to know, but that’s where you have to be strong.

So you want to take the perfect road trip huh? Before any suggestions are made about where exactly to go, you may want to take a few moments to examine the things you’ll need to make that road trip the best one ever! First thing’s first: Depending on where you’re going and how far you’re coming from, getting a general consensus of what you and your fellow travelers expect is a good place to start. Making sure you didn’t accidentally invite any of your friends that have unresolved issues is also advisable. Nothing is worse than breaking up a squabble at the rest stop. Also, making sure no new disagreements arise on the trip will be helpful in your attempt at a successful road trip. So, having an agreed upon plan ahead of time will serve you well.

No matter what type of event you’re planning, attention to detail and a follow-through are the two attributes you want the person organizing your event to have. Especially if you’re planning a wedding…suddenly the stakes are higher. You’re going to need someone that won’t let you down. Maybe you’re that person. You’ve been called on to run the reception…are you up for it? Here’s a few tip to help you get through the process, without making the bride too upset. First thing is first: Is the event a black tie, formal or informal event? Knowing the formality of the event will help you take the first steps in planning such an event. Do you need to hire a caterer or are you and Aunt Sally going to bring your famous potato salad?

For the most part, the Napa Valley is known for its beautiful rolling hills of vineyards and wineries around every corner. And that’s not a bad thing! But Napa has so much more going on in and around it that it would be a shame for you to vist without experiencing what the area has to offer all year round. Knowing what to expect when you get there will help you make the most of your roadtrip or vacation! One thing you might not know about the area is that you always want to pack a coat. Although it is on the border of Northern and Central California, it is still somewhat located in the hills a bit. Sure the tempratures during the day are pretty mild for the most part, but once te sun goes down, they tend to drop below what might be comfortable. Packing a sweater or light jacket should do the trick, but shorts and flip flops are not advized.
