Before NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick and his fiancee tie the knot later this year, the bride-to-be jetted off for her bachelorette party.
Karly Skladany, along with about ten friends, traveled to New Orleans for the fun getaway this past weekend. During the trip, Kirkpatrick's gal donned a tiara with the words "Bachelorette" on it and wore a sash that said "Bride to Be."
"She was having a blast," one onlooker, who spotted the gals on Oct. 5, told EnStars. "At one point, she was double fisting drinks at the bar, surrounded by friends and laughing. It was all good fun."
Last October, on a pre-planned birthday trip to Italy, Kirkpatrick surprised his girlfriend of two and a half years, by proposing.
"We had a hotel room at the Isle of Capri, overlooking the Mediterranean," he told PEOPLE at the time. "It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. And it hit me: I wanted to propose to Karly. So I ran to a jewelry store, found the perfect ring and bought it."
Later that evening, Kirkpatrick proposed. "We were sitting on the balcony with a bottle of champagne and I put the ring in her glass," he revealed. "I know it sounds cheesy, but it was romantic. As soon as I asked her, she said, 'It's about time!' And we laughed. It was spur of the moment, but it was absolutely perfect."
The ring he picked for Skladany, 28, has a large oval-cut diamond surrounded by several smaller diamonds set in a two-tiered white gold band.
