So if you follow me on social media, specifically Instagram you saw that I was in Jamaica celebrating one of my bridesmaids bachelorette weekend! I figure I’d write a “recap” if you will with all fun bachelorette type stuff that we did!
So Friday we all flew out from the same airport and I actually rode to the airport with the bride. So once we met up with everyone some girls got breakfast and of course we cheered to some mimosas!
Next the MOH and Bride got us these super cute gift bags that included a personalized tumbler with everyone’s name and the hashtag of the weekend. The cups were so useful the whole weekend and also since we stayed at a resort it was really nice to ask them to put our drinks in our cute little tumblers. These cute hair ties came in so handy, and a makeup bag that said “team bride”.
So we finally flew out to Jamaica and once we landed we were transported to the resort. Since we got there around 4 or so, we were all feeling a little hungry, so we checked in and we decided to let some of the girls go get food while the rest of us went to take our luggage to the room and get settled in. So mostly all the girls ended up sneaking away to come decorate the brides room! We took about 20 minutes decorating and as a group we had already discussed some decor items so we all pitched in to make it perfect! Take a look at some of the decor:
After we hurried to decorate we all went downstairs to eat something quick for lunch. Once we were done we all went to the bride’s room to see her reaction of the room! Once we were there we took some cute photos and made a couple of drinks. Everyone then decided we would go walk around the resort for a bit and figure out our excursion for the following day. We then had dinner at a restaurant in the resort and made our way back to our room to get ready for the night. The resort we stayed at has a sister resort about 2 hotels down and that is where the nightclub was at. We had drinks and danced the night away!
We woke up, had breakfast and then made our way to enjoy the beautiful beach! We took photos, had delicious drinks, and around noon, the resort had a jerk chicken hut. So fresh jerk chicken cooked on the beach and drinks. It was amazing! After that we headed back to the room to change into our matching swimsuits. We had booked a catamaran for the afternoon. It then began raining so we had to reschedule for the following morning! So instead we played a couple of games we had planned such as “who knows the bride the best”. It was a questionnaire with questions such as what’s the brides middle name to where are the bride and groom honeymooning. We then had another game planned, the panty game. Basically each girl on the trip brought the bride a panty that describes the girl. We put them in a bag to mix them around. The bride then pulled a panty from the bag and had to guess which one of us brought the panty. This game was hilarious as some panties were lacy and girly and others were a little more raunchy! Her reaction to each one was priceless.
After the games we went ahead and asked the resort if they recommended any local shopping around. A driver took us to “hip street’ where they had several shops, we did some shopping for souvenirs and then they also had a Margaritaville. We had a drink there and enjoyed the stunning views. We got back to the resort and had dinner! After that, the resort had a comedy show so we stayed there to watch and somehow managed to get the bride on stage! From there we called it a night as we had to wake up early the next day!
This was our boat day and we were all so excited to wear our matching swimsuits and be out in the sun! We all went downstairs for breakfast then the driver picked us up to take us to the dock! The catamaran included an open bar, local snacks and for the girls foot massages! We enjoyed drinks, lots of drinks, good music, and of course had a picture overload! We then reached a part of the ocean where we are able to snorkel if we’d like! Some girls snorkeled while others jumped from the boat! The next stop was Margaritaville where they had this giant slide and some inflatable water activities. We all went to deck and had drinks there as well, and some girls went down the slide. Finally we headed back to the dock where we left from and headed to the resort. At this point we were all tan, exhausted and definitely feeling the drinks! We had lunch and then we were ready to continue. We went to the swim up bar in the pool and just hung out for a couple of hours. By this time everyone needed a power nap. We then woke up and had dinner, and the resort was having an all white beach party! This was fun and of course the resort knew how to entertain and had so many things going on. As this was our last night we went ahead and headed back to the club and it was fun having the bride enjoy herself on the last night of the trip!
Some girls woke up earlier than others, so we all had breakfast at different times. We then met at the beach for one last time! From there we packed up our things and checked out!
Overall the trip was beyond amazing and such a great getaway for all of us while celebrating the bride. We created hilarious memories that I’m sure we will look back at years from now and just laugh! Now the countdown continues for the bride as we get closer to the wedding! Thanks for reading 🙂
