How to Plan a Bachelorette in the Hamptons - #TheAshBash - By Kelsey O'Toole
So it’s time to plan the perfect bachelorette, in this case it was for my sister, so as MOH and someone who works in the wedding industry I wanted everything to be awesome, and the process stress-free. Since she had a summer wedding in New England, we planned a Hamptons Beach Getaway just before Memorial Day weekend!
Here is what we did:
- Arrive in Southampton 3 PM, welcome drinks at the house
- Dinner at 75 Main 7:00 PM followed by bonfire & s’mores
- Outfits-comfortable & Cozy
- Breakfast at the house & relax by pool
- Take “morning after” pics- think Bridesmaids (the movie)
- Say Good-Byes!
Pro Planning Tip: Set a strict budget, make sure everyone’s on board, designate tasks if you need help, but most importantly keep it fun and stress free--a wedding is stressful enough -unnecessarily- so seriously HAVE FUN WITH IT!!! XOXO

"When my sister was little she told my mom she wanted her wedding gifts wrapped in "The Little Mermaid" it was her favorite movie and years ago my mom found that wrapping paper and bought a bunch to wrap her wedding gifts in. So when I found The Mermaid Inn Beach house to rent it just all kind of fell in place."
