Girlfriends Weekend 2019

Ocean Riviera Paradise, Cancun Mexico

Get ready to reset, relax, and rejuvenate with some amazing girlfriends!

What is Girlfriend’s Weekend?

Girlfriend’s Weekend is the ultimate 4 days 3 nights destination experience designed to refresh, relax, and rejuvenate with girlfriends. Last year we had a FANTASTIC time in Nassau, Bahamas! In fact, we almost went back! lol

Girlfriend’s Weekend was born out of the Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ events. Our brunch events are designed specifically for and by women, creating meaningful connections and igniting the vast power of girlfriends. After each brunch guests always ask – “When’s the next event?” We’ve found that women love connecting and once a year at our brunch events was not enough. Our solution-GFW and other Beyond the Brunch experiences.

At GFW – everything is optional! You can join the group activities, explore on your own, or simply sit by the ocean or pool.

The goal is to relax, refresh, and rejuvenate so that you can return home and be your best self! 

What can you expect @ GFW?

  • Other like-minded women who love meaningful connections & experiences
  • TONS of fun, laughter, and great memories
  • GFW goodies
  • Welcome Reception & Kick-off Party
  • Beachside morning meditation 
  • Colorful Saturday night beachside party
  • Our famous Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™
  • And of course, the most important thing – designated downtime to rest, shop, catch some rays or explore the island

Who is the host for the GFW experience?

GFW is hosted by Lana Hunter, Founder of the Sundress & Big Hat Brunch and Melissa J Nixon, Founder of the Courageous Life Academy, a personal development and business consulting firm. These two have been working together for over 5 years.  They decided to combine their skill sets and co-host this event.
