Mandy Moore Shares Details of New Orleans Bachelorette Party


As This is Us star Mandy Moore preps to marry her fiancé’ Taylor Goldsmith, she’s got quite the pre-wedding checklist. But yes, she just checked off her bachelorette party.

“I’m getting married soon and this was sort of a bachelorette, girls weekend,” she told Ellen DeGeneres about her recent trip. “My friends were lovely to take off on a Wednesday to go to New Orleans with me.”

Yet, while some bachelorette parties quickly go off the rails, Moore’s party was a tad tamer.

“You know New Orleans, people go get pretty rowdy, but I think we were in bed by like 10 p.m. every night,” said Moore, who got engaged to Goldsmith back in September of 2017 after dating him for two years. “We had a glass of wine and were like, ‘We’re good!’ “

But that doesn’t mean that they didn’t have a good time.

“It’s the best! The food, the culture — we went on a ghost tour,” she says. “We did all of it!”

In a recent interview, Moore also talked about her wedding plans and admitted to the one thing she has not crossed off her list.

“I don’t know what it’s going to be quite yet,” Moore admits. “I never really had these grand ideas of what that day would look like. I need to get to the point where I can decide on something.”
