It’s almost that time. We have officially made it to my wedding day, the day that I have been dreaming of since I was a little girl, is almost here! I have been knee deep in planning every last detail for the wedding and with just four months left before the big day, I knew it was time to throw my bachelorette party. Not just any bachelorette party, but an intimate one, one with my best friend and the person that has been with me since day one, my sister/maid of honor.

With the amazing team at Party City, InterContinental Hotels and Resorts and ShopStyle, my sister and I headed up to San Diego and had the best bachelorette party, filled with beautiful decor from Party City, and amazing food, ambiance and amenities provided by the Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts San Diego. 

Since San Diego is about two hours away from Los Angeles, we decided to stay the weekend to celebrate. Not only is the InterContinental Hotels and Resorts San Diego in a prime location, the luxurious hotel has everything you need so you don’t have to leave.

The InterContinental Hotels and Resorts San Diego blends sophistication with the laid-back style of San Diego and has 400 elegant guest rooms, Club rooms and suites along the downtown waterfront. Each room has floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing each guest to wake up to the beautiful California sunshine and breathtaking views of San Diego.

Our Room

We stayed in a beautiful Corner Suite with stunning 180° floor-to-ceiling, panoramic views of San Diego Bay and city.

Favorite In-Room Amenities

  • Complimentary wi-fi
  • Gorgeous, well lit, and spacious bathroom, with a walk in shower. This made doing makeup and getting ready, that much easier. 
  • Same Day Dry Cleaning – Perfect for those celebrating a special occasion or traveling for business.
  • Cozy robes and slippers – I am all about the robe life and enjoy ordering room service, drinking a glass of champagne and relaxing in a robe. 

Hotel Services

Elegance on the San Diego Waterfront. InterContinental Hotels and Resorts San Diego is in a league of their own. The hotel offers an elevated experience and offers 5-star hotel amenities and services. It has two restaurants, 3 bars and a Starbucks. Which gives you plenty of dining options to choose from. InterContinental Hotels and Resorts San Diego provides 24-hour room service, both valet and self parking and a 3,300 sq. ft. Health and Wellness Center. My sister and I also spent the night sitting poolside and enjoying cocktails while taking in the city views.

Restaurants + Bars

Encompassing California coastal flavors, the restaurants at InterContinental Hotels and Resorts did just that. We had the luxury of dining at the Vistal Bar + Restaurant and enjoying light bites at the Layover.

Vistal Bar + Restaurant 

We ate at the Vistal Bar + Restaurant twice. Once for dinner and again for breakfast the next morning. The signature restaurant overlooks the San Diego Bay, and the menu pays homage to the cultures that have shaped San Diego’s culinary foundation. For dinner, I ordered the filet mignon, which was cooked to perfection and my sister ordered the local fish.

Layover

Layover is a laid-back, outdoor, bar and lounge that is located near the pool on the fourth floor. We enjoyed cocktails and light bites for a good few hours here and were able to watch and enjoy the beautiful San Diego sunset.

Decorating our room was one of my favorite parts. Party City was able to bring my vision to life with their unparalleled assortment of supplies. With costumes and party supplies that fit any style and budget, Party City is truly a one stop shop. They also offered helpful expertise and had so many inspirational images and ideas on their website. 

The Party City Decor, Oh it’s on! 

Party Backdrop

This gold backdrop really tied the room together. It was my favorite decor item and looked beautiful against the night skyline.

Photo Booth Props

You can’t have a bachelorette party without Photo Booth props! These are so fun and included 14, trendy, team bride Photo Booth props. 

Confetti Balloons

How amazing are these?! Each package comes with 5 rose gold confetti filled balloons, which gives you an elevated and unique take on the traditional pink balloons. I decided to lay these on the bed, for an added element of fun!

Fan Decorations

The theme of my bachelorette party was gold and metallics, similar to my wedding theme. These fan decorations are perfect for a backdrop and come with three large and two small white and gold foiled fans giving you versatility and plenty of options on ways to style them. 

From Miss to Mrs. Sign

I feel like every bachelorette party must have the “From Miss to Mrs.” bunting. After all, you are becoming a Mrs. We used the sign as a part of the photo-booth backdrop.

Giant Ring Balloon

One of our favorite props was the diamond ring balloon. How can you not love an oversized diamond ring?

Hangover Kit

These Hangover Kits are perfect for a weekend Bachelorette trip. I included water, eye masks, gum, pain reliever and face masks in our kits.

Party Themed Cups and Napkins

The I Do Crew napkins and cups were the perfect addition to the party.

We laughed all day, partied all night and I am so thankful for the opportunity that InterContinental Hotel and Resorts and Party City gave to me. I had the best intimate Bachelorette Party, and memories that will last a lifetime. The perfect combination for anyone looking to host their Bachelorette Party or event.

I hope this post has given you the inspiration you needed for your Bachelorette Party. This is such a great time in your life and the start of your next chapter. Be sure to enjoy the process and stop and remember to have fun.
