Glam Bachelorette Trip
It seems like just yesterday we were lounging on our private boat we rented for the day and swimming in the ocean with the fishes (and God knows what else) for my bachelorette trip #AshSlaysFinalFiesta. Cancun, Mexico was the location and my amazing friends and bridemaids were there to celebrate with me. 9/20/2017
Of course the day before the trip is like the longest day EVER. The anticipation of getting off from work and escaping from real life for a few days can be unbearable. ESPECIALLY when you are planning a wedding and dealing with 9 bridesmaids and a mother.(I LOVE YALL) But no... really... I was stressed, overstimulated and just ready to unplug for a few days!
Finally, the day has come! We ALL arrived to Hobby Airport TWO hours before our flight is scheduled to take off! Do you know how hard it is to get 13 women ANYWHERE EARLY??? But everyone was there at 6am with a smile on their beautiful faces ready to make this the best bachelorette trip ever. We started the party early on the flight. Can I have crown and diet coke please... make that two!
We landed in Cancun and jumped in the shuttle bus that our all inclusive resort had waiting for us. Thank God. Because anyone who has ever been to Mexico, know as soon as you step outside the airport you will be bombarded with "drivers" begging to take you and your money. But my husband taught me well... he said "look straight ahead and ignore all those "drivers" until you find the person your resort has specifically sent for you."
We get to our lovely resort and everyone dispersed to their rooms to change into swimsuits and meet at the pool for drinks and food. I wanted to do something special for my bridesmaids and friends so I created "Oh SH** Kits" with all the essentials to survive a hangover. The kits had: BC powder, gum, chap stick, hand sanitizer, a personalized flask, temporary tattoos and lotion.
I had been stalking wedding instagram pages that feature brides and their bride tribe on their bachelorette trip and fell in love with all the creative ideas. I wanted to be original and do something that I had not seen before. At FIRST I was on this all white kick. I wanted everyone to wear all white. White bathing suit, white bridesmaid dresses I even wanted all the wedding guest to wear white. WHITE WHITE WHITE. Its MYYY wedding. Why not? Well... needless to say I changed my mind 1,000 times and found the perfect swim suits for the brides maids to wear. It was a beautiful turquoise swimsuit from flynation.com. But my bathing though.... y'all know I had to do THE MOST RIGHT?
My bathing suit was custom made by yours truly... not only is she glam, fab and smart but she's creative too! TOOT TOOT! I ordered a plain white two piece from amazon.com and found crystal jewels from hobby lobby and E5000 glue. I glued crystal jewels to every single inch of that swim suit so I could light up ALL OF CANCUN. There was no way you were going to miss me. I even bought a crown to match. SURE DID!
My cousin and glam girl Charne and friend Hannah really did their thing with planning this bachelorette trip! I couldn't have asked for a better group to plan a trip and coordinate 13 women! Please enjoy the pictures below.
