At HBD headquarters, as we are in our busiest time of year, we can’t help but dream of turquoise water, margaritas, and laughs with girlfriends! Inspired by our longing to visit Mexico for a girls weekend real soon, we have compiled a few of our beach and girls night necessities to help you get ready for your next bachelorette bash. Whether you’re headed down to 3OA or South of the boarder, we want to make sure our brides can prepare for their next bridal party gathering with excitement and absolutely zero stress! Here’s to you, Brides and Bridesmaids, and to the fun times ahead! Read on for our advice on bachelorette weekend packing!
To get started, if you’re headed to Mexico, we are so jealous!! We definitely think you should start your packing with beach essentials. We love this trendy, white TRIANGL brand suit for the bride! Bridesmaids, you can find it in almost any and every color combo your heart desires! Don’t be afraid to rock the bright colors, girls weekends are all about being fun!! You’ll also need your favorite sunscreen, sunglasses, flip-flops, cover up, and hat for the beach! The SPF is low on this tube of Bain de Soleil, but you can pick up the classic gel sunscreen in a more practical SPF at your local Ulta. We love a good, straw fedora for the beach! Is there a cuter way to get some shade, and protect that expensive hair do?! We don’t think so! This hat is a steal at just $15 from Forever21! Don’t forget to pack your favorite linen pants. They’re perfect for transitioning from the beach to the bar! You and your best babes can pair your comfy linen pants and go to shorts with fun custom tanks that say ‘Bride’ or ‘Bridesmaid’ if you want to really get the party started! We think this Bride tank would also make a perfect gift!
If you’re the bride and you’re looking to take a little something along for your bridal party, how cute is this India Hicks beetle print zip up? Available in five colors, you can get each of your girls their own and fill it with essentials for the big day! One of our favorite, secret weapons for curing a hangover is Blowfish! Hook your friends up with a couple tablets to throw in their morning water before they hit the beach!
You definitely need a few cocktail dresses, and great heels for nights out on the town! We love this neon, off the shoulder mini dress, perfect for showing off your tan! If you’re the bride, make sure you pack a few white dresses! We are totally in love with this white Valentino dress and heels! A black romper, paired with your favorite jewelry, can easily transition from day to night! Switch from your flip flops to heels, and add our favorite India Hicks clutch!!
For some giggles and old-fashioned fun, we think an oversized flamingo floatie and an old school camera set the tone! While you’re out picking up those, and the goodies for your bridesmaids, make sure to get your passport updated, and take your favorite polish with you to the nail salon! Using one of your own polishes means that you can take the bottle with you, and fix any chips or imperfections that might occur while you’re having the time of your life!
We hope you’re taking time soon to get together with your best friends! If there’s a bachelorette weekend in the works, safe travels ladies!!!
