If you follow me on Instagram (@setarrra), you might have noticed that I escaped to the woods in Maryland last weekend for my girlfriend, Lmya‘s bachelorette party. I’ve known Lmya since my freshmen year in college and was honored to be included in the celebration of her upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Bini, which will take place this December in (wait for it) MEXICO!
As you know, I’m a sucker for destination weddings (hello France & St. John, USVI!) = there was no way I was going to miss watching one of my closest girlfriends tie the knot. And don’t worry, Charles is coming too. :)
A really cool fact about Lmya’s wedding in Mexico is that she and Bini will not have a wedding party, i.e. no bridesmaids or groomsmen. It will be just the two of them, front and center on their wedding day. As a result, Lmya’s bachelorette party was an extra special one because the ladies invited to her “weekend in the woods” represented those who would have been in her bridal party, if she had one.

Front Row – Bety, Ebony, Lmya, Kansha, Falen. Back Row – Me, Kim, Whitney, Millen, Tiffany and Meriam.
We spent 3 days in the middle of the woods, hanging out in the cutest cabin, eating, drinking, attempting to hike, and playing games. Some of the ladies invited I had never met before but by the time Sunday rolled around when it was time to check out, I felt like we had all bonded in the best way possible.
With that said, t-minus 48 days until Lmya gets married! I can’t wait to see everyone from the bachelorette again and celebrate some more in Mexico! Charles and I just purchased our plane tickets this past Tuesday which means this trip is really happening. Arrrrrrriba! #ahmedweds
