I just spent the weekend in Kelowna and it was the perfect spot for a girl’s weekend getaway. My best friend and I are getting married a week apart so we decided to get all of our best girlfriends together to celebrate. We have been planning this trip since early this year and it’s hard to believe it’s already over!
We had a jam packed weekend full of bachelorette party fun. We arrived in Kelowna on Thursday evening and started off with a Welcome BBQ at the resort. We all sat around the fire, ate burgers and s’mores, and everyone got to share their favourite memories of the brides-to-be while getting to know each other. We stayed at the beautiful The Cove Lakeside Resort. All the girls loved the resort - it was in a quaint location close to the wineries in West Kelowna. The resort has its own private boating dock, a private beach and a really nice pool. I will definitely be going back to this resort.
On Friday, we went on a wine tour we booked through a company called Vines and Views. They were really great at accommodating 20 girls. We got our own private tour bus fully stocked with snacks and drinks. Our tour guide was great company and very knowledgeable about the area and the different wineries we visited. We visited 5 wineries. Quail’s Gate was definitely my favourite stop and the views from here were breathtaking.
On our final day we were able to sleep in a little and have breakfast at the resort before heading out on the water for the afternoon. We rented a boat through the same company Vines and Views. It was a such a good time and perhaps my favourite part of the weekend. We danced, listened to music, and got views of the beautiful Lake Okanagan. Some girls were even daring enough to jump in the water, but not me. I stuck one toe in and pulled it right out - the water was pretty cold!
On our last evening, we played some fun bachelorette party games and popped some champagne before dancing the night away. All the girls dressed in white and I dressed in rose gold.
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. If you are planning a bachelorette party I would definitely recommend Kelowna!
Lot’s of Love
