Being a professional tennis player, Met Gala fashion icon, fiancée, and mama-to-be might keep Serena Williams on the go, but even with a busy agenda the champion was able to make a little time for one much-needed pre-wedding event: her bridal shower. Just last weekend, Williams and 20 of her closest friends and family headed off to Miami for a weekend-long event, and we're officially taking notes.

The group holed up for the celebration at the 1 Hotel and Homes South Beach (also called "the Wellness Hotel"), where an incredible weekend and Instagram-worthy moments awaited. "The shower really reflected Serena's girlie and detail-oriented personality," friend and event planner Val Vogt said, according to People. "There were a lot of surprises for her throughout the weekend."

 

The festivities included a morning yoga and meditation class on the hotel's rooftop pool deck, foot massages in a poolside cabana and even a private yacht cruise around Miami. The group also took a quick swim in the ocean before heading back to the super-luxe suite they'd packed with their own bridal décor, which included piñatas created to represent Williams and her fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, and a gold balloon sign that read "Nacho Average Bride." So cute, right? "It was a really magical weekend with a lot of love for Serena," longtime friend Lara Shriftman said.

 

To wrap up the event, the entire group dressed up for a private brunch (on a private beach no less!) to celebrate Williams' upcoming nuptials. What a celebration! If this is the way this group does bridal showers, we can't wait to see details from the wedding day!
