Back to Basics
There is nothing quite like the excitement and anticipation of getting ready to you out with your best friends. A girls’ night is the tried-and-true spectacle and is always a fan-favorite festivity. Slip on those heels, wear that sparkly sash, and dance the night away!
Detox and Destress
Wellness retreats are all the rage right now, and if you are looking for an idyllic escape from the craziness and overwhelming responsibilities of wedding planning, this is for you! Set aside the weekend to relax and dive into yoga, face masks, meditative baths, spa treatments, and all things calming. Everyone will most certainly return rejuvenated and radiant for the big day!
Bring Out the Bubbly
A pop of champagne or quick bar hop is merely the start when it comes to tackling the beverages for the bachelorette. Tour a brewery, winery, distillery, or take a cocktail-making class for a fully immersive experience. You could even craft a signature cocktail, too!

Cute and Classy Sleepover
Make this one for the books for going all out on a theme, decor, gifts, games, food, drinks, and everything in between. Incorporate the bride’s favorite colors, movies, tv shows, books, music, and more. Set up an outdoor projector for a little movie night and shop around for matching slippers and robe sets for an added personal touch.
Take The Stage
Calling all music and drama lovers to indulge in an evening of musical fun! Comedy shows, karaoke clubs, dinner theaters, and concerts are just a few ideas for infusing a little drastic flair to your itinerary.
Always wanted to check off that bucket list city? Satisfy your wanderlust and travel somewhere new. New York, Orlando, and Miami are all classic east-coast bachelorette destinations and it is easy to see why. For a taste of the pacific sun, take a little visit to Las Vegas, Palm Springs, or Los Angeles for a bustling metropolitan bachelorette. The abundance of activities and vibrance of the cities speak for themselves. If the bride is more of a southern belle herself, places like Charleston, Nashville, and Savannah ooze chic hospitality and charm. Austin and New Orleans are more popular getaways with plenty of unique sights and sounds. If you are feeling luxurious, plan a trip to the Hamptons, dip your toes in the clear Caribbean waters, or fly abroad!
A Sail Before the Veil
If your pick for the destination bachelorette is by the water, why not explore both land and sea? Make some memories on open waters and party under the twinkling sky on a charter boat or yacht!
Hit the Road
For a more budget-friendly alternative, road trip to the nearest national park or mountain range. Uncover hidden gems like a secret hot spring or waterfall, or just drive until you reach the coastline for a beachy weekend. Renting an Airbnb is another way to save as they typically do not run as steep as some hotels and resorts. As a bonus, go on an exciting new excursion through Airbnb Experiences.
Is the bride an avid artist? Plan an afternoon at the art gallery or book a private class with local vendors and boutiques. From ceramics to paint-and-sips, jewelry making to glassblowing, the options are truly endless with artsy activities that are sure to delight the bridal party.
Enjoy the Outdoors
Live and breathe amongst your area’s flora and fauna. Visit the local botanical gardens, tour an orchard, take photos in a flower field, and pack a picnic basket. Many vendors also offer farm-to-table dining which would be the perfect finish to a day of traipsing through nature. Everyone will definitely appreciate the fresh air!
