Destination Bachelorette Parties
Boys have been doing it for ages – taking all the guys off to Las Vegas or another destination spot for their bachelor parties. It is no wonder, then, that girls are now getting in on the act and having destination bachelorette parties. A destination bachelorette party can be a great way for the girls to get away for the weekend. It provides lots of bonding time, a wide variety of activities to keep busy, and a fun time! Another wonderful point about a destination bachelorette party is that it gives the bride a great way to reduce stress with her girlfriends in the middle of the wedding planning craziness.
The most popular spot for an out of town bachelorette party is Las Vegas. It is a party land for adults, and proves to have many activities for bachelorettes. The party can include almost anything you want to do – seeing a show, doing great shopping, and having wonderful dinners out. Vegas also is a prime spot for more wild activities, including male strip clubs and bars and clubs for drinking and dancing.
Las Vegas has a large number of spas, and many poolside retreats for the girls to relax as well. If you don’t want to go to Vegas, other spas are a great option for a girl getaway. Spas are popular with bachelorettes because they are relaxing, and woman friendly. Many popular destination spas even offer bachelorette or group discount, and the bachelorette party can take advantage of this savings. Spas are located in almost every city throughout the country, so there is sure to be an option anywhere you want to take the bachelorette party.
Other options for destination bachelorette parties are tropical beaches. The girls may decide to spend a weekend at the beach in California, Florida, or even somewhere in the Caribbean. These trips depend largely on how much money each of the party attendees is willing to spend for a weekend away with the girls. If you do plan a tropical outing, plan gift bags for each girl with things like a beach towel and sunscreen, to give your bachelorette party weekend a uniform theme of fun in the sun!
When planning a destination bachelorette party, you really must be clear on the plans to coordinate an entire group of girls. First, see what the other bridesmaids are willing to pay for the weekend away. It is best to limit the guest list for a destination bachelorette party to around five or six girls at the most. If you take too many girls with you, it will be difficult to coordinate.
In addition, it is important to discuss with the girls who is paying for the bride’s trip. Traditionally, the bride doesn’t pay for any part of her bachelorette party, though it is appropriate to ask the bride to pay for a small portion of her destination bachelorette party expenses. Also, remember to include the bride herself in all the major destination decisions, as you don’t want to pick a location or a date that don’t work for the honored guest of the weekend!
