Summer Recap – Part 2 “The Bridal Party Olympics”

I’m soooooo excited to share all the details about the awesome Bachelorette Weekend we threw for my gorgeous sister-in-law Jessie!!! Over the 4th of July weekend we had a big celebration with a bunch of friends and family celebrating the soon-to-be newlyweds,  Jessie and Joshua! Bridesmaids and Groomsmen converged on the lake house for a whole weekend full of festivities topped off with a beautiful and rustic Bridal Shower!!!

We kicked off the long weekend with a fun & festive 4th of July celebration.  To read all the details from my Summer Recap – Part 1 “Our 4th of July” click HERE!

Next up my fellow Co-Mohs, short for Co-Maids of Honor, planned a kick-ass joint Bachelorette & Bachelor Party, minus the stripers and penius themed everything. Totally tacky and not our style at all. We opted for something slightly more tasteful and went for a fun Bridal Party Olympics themed weekend, a twist on the common Beer Olympics. The weekend was full of “TEAM BRIDE” vs “TEAM GROOM” events, competitions, party decor and coordinated outfits.

To get started we needed a fun & festive “Scoreboard” to keep track of the winners and the losers!  In true “Olympic” style the winning team was given a trophy!!! In honor of the Bride and Groom, we joined their 2 last names and called our Olympics “The Ranwood Games.” Cue the traditional olympic music…

We kicked off the “Ranwood Games” with a traditional Beer Pong Tournament followed by a fun 3-Legged Race.  We creatively used blue and pink blow up kiddie rings for our race. Oh yea, we are just awesome like that!! Sorry about the blurry video quality…

And last, for the ultimate WIN of the Ranwood Games, we had a totally fun Relay Race complete with color coordinated batons. It was a blast and TEAM GROOM beat us by only seconds on the human pyramid!!! I absolutely LOVE all the goofy girly golden retrievers running around after us!!!

Ultimately the whole day was an absolute SUCCESS and most importantly, everyone had so much fun!!! The whole weekend was such a blast and we all made fabulous memories! It was also a fantastic way to get the whole Bridal Party together as a meet & greet before the wedding!!!

So much FUN and more to come about Jessie’s beautiful Bridal Shower & Wedding!!!
