This may come as a surprise to some, but I actually planned my entire bachelorette party. For those of you who have the pleasure of knowing me personally, this is no surprise. I always knew my bachelorette party would be in Mexico, because Lauren Conrad had her’s there and I obviously had to follow suit.
I’ve used Cheap Caribbean before and had a good experience. I used the search feature to filter the travel dates, hotel star rating and overall cost. I find it helpful to also cross check the hotel pictures from the website to what guest post on social media.
Where we stayed
I decided on Ocean Riviera Paradise because it checked off all my requirements.
I followed my own advice from this prior blog post. I split the girls up into rooms and went ahead and reserved everyone. The good thing about Cheap Caribbean is that it allows you to enter multiple credit cards (making splitting cost simple), their customer service is friendly and helpful, and they offer payment plans.
The Goodie Bag
I didn’t snap a blog worthy picture of the goodie bag, but I’ll list what it contained. With the help of a bridesmaid I was able to save money by using her circuit machine to DIY the tote, cups and tank-tops.
- Hangover kit
- Bride Tribe sunglasses
- Bride Tribe Temporary Tattoos
- Inflatable Drink Holders
- Tumbler Cup with Lid
- I had a bridesmaid add “Sip Sip Ole” in vinyl
- Two tank-tops
- One that said “margaritas con mis señoritas”
- One that said “fiesta, siesta, tequila, repeat”
- I added “hola beaches” in vinyl to the goodie bag
While I was busy dropping off the goodie bags and decorating the girls rooms, they transformed my room into the LC bachelorette party room of my dreams.
