You guys, I cannot believe that in a couple days my best friends and I will be road tripping to the beach for my bachelorette weekend.  eek!  Everything is getting so close and is starting to feel so real.  Unbelievable.  

Now I know as you near your bachelorette party weekend you will have a lot on your mind.  So I'm here to remind you of the five things you CAN'T forget when packing.  My F I V E bachelorette party essentials, that I'll be packing.

ONE || SNACKS.  I mean who road trips without snacks?  I certainly can't.  Plus, not having to stop to get snacks will save you time and money.  Time and money that could be spent celebrating instead.   I'll take the celebrating please.

 My go-to road trip snack?  Twizzlers Twists.  More specifically the Strawberry Twizzlers Twists.  
There's just something about the traditional Strawberry Twizzlers Twists that bring me back to my childhood.  But just because I'm a sucker for a candy that makes me nostalgic for my childhood doesn't mean I didn't grab the Rainbow Twizzlers as well...just for good measure.  ;)
Naturally I picked up my Twizzlers Twists from Walmart because well, I'm always finding myself there.  They have it all.
TWO || WHITE.  It's your bachelorette and another chance to wear white.  Feel like a bride.  I'll definitely be packing two (or five) white outfits for our beach weekend trip.  I need choices people.
THREE || GIFTS.  I know, I know it seems like there are so many gifts to be giving out while planning a wedding (see ; bridal hostess gifts).  But it's important to keep in mind all that your bridal party and family are doing for you during these stressful, planning months.  
So yes, gifts.  I have gotten my girls T H E cutest gifts as a "thank you".  I can't reveal them on here just yet.  But think "beachy".  And make sure to check out my instagram for a reveal later this week.

FOUR || BATHING SUITS.  Our road trip is headed straight for the beach.  My favorite place ever.  So bathing suits are a must.  And there is nothing too small to put on your packing list.  
I once forgot to pack underwear when going home for Christmas break in college...I'll just let you figure out how well that went over...
REMEMBER: Nothing is too small to put on the list.

FIVE || "MRS."  Any and everything that you have that says "bride-to-be," "MRS." "future last name" or along those lines.  Now is your time to shine.  What better time than now?!  You deserve it bride-to-be.

SNACKS [ read twizzlers twists ] , WHITE, GIFTS, BATHING SUITS & anything "BRIDE-TO-BE".  Pack all those up in a super cute, monogrammed weekender bag and you are set to go for your last single fling.  
Oh lordy, I can hardly contain myself.  Excited is an understatement y'all.
So tell me what's your bachelorette party must-have?  Do Twizzlers Twists remind you of your childhood?  What's your favorite road trip snack?
