Tulum before the Groom

Planning a bachelorette is just plain hard.. You want the bride to have her dream trip, you want the bridesmaids and friends to trust you and have get their monies worth. So, I thought it would be nice to share some tips and links for the perfect gifts, goodie bags, and of course decor.

It has been a dream of mine and Tan’s to do a fun tropical bachelorette for as long as I can remember. So, when I found this amazing resort in the jungle of Tulum for an incredible price it was a done deal. We got the 3 bedroom Penthouse with a private rooftop pool and bar and it was so affordable. I highly recommend. Plus breakfast was complimentary and included bottomless mimosas (this was great a surprise). Resort – KasaTulum

Gitano Tulum – Highly recommend for dinner and dancing. Little trick for a large group reservation they will make you pay a fixed rate but, we discovered there is an area in the back where they have cafe tables and couches. You can order food without a reservation and it’s first come first serve. You might have to stay on the wait staff a little more but, it’s way cheaper. The vibe of this place is just so cool.. Jungle meets classy marble + chandeliers. Oh, and definitely go for the margarita pitcher.

Mia Beach club was affiliated with our resort (free shuttle). They did have a $35 per person minimum to use the Loungers on the beach, but this was easy since we planned on drinking margs all day and eating lunch there. The staff was super friendly and accommodating.

Goodie Bags –
I wanted to give everyone goodie bags with stuff they would actually use. I had gotten a goodie bag from my friend’s Katie’s Bachelorette that had advil and makeup wipes and all kinds of practical stuff. I got all the stuff from etsy and amazon and they were one of my favorite things to put together.
