Bachelorette Party Ideas For The Not-So-Basic Bride!
For the bachelorette skip the clichés and head to one of these destinations instead.
Gone are the days when throwing a bachelorette party meant buying a bunch of sashes or props or hiring a stripper to embarrass your brides-to-be friend before her wedding. Many brides are ditching tradition and opting for a weekend getaway with their bridesmaids and closest pals. Here, our favorite travel ideas for an alternative bachelorette party with of course no typical tiaras.
1. London or NYC Staycation
If most of your friends already live in the greatest city on earth, why leave? If they don’t, why not plan a weekend to the cities that never sleep. Treat yourselves to a weekend of luxurious splurges, sushi, cocktails and mani/pedis. Spend the night at some of the city’s best hotels for a quick stay, whose nightlife scene is a great way to cap off the night.
2. Moved on
Move on from your annual pilgrimage to Coachella, but still want to soak in those party vibes? Look for a destination where you can stay right in the middle of it all or rent an service apartment, or Airbnb or a luxe classic vintage home to give the weekend a slumber party vibe.
3. Island Hopping in Croatia
If you’re throwing a destination wedding in Europe, have mercy on your bridesmaids and save them the ordeal of buying another ticket for a bachelorette party. Instead, have them arrive a few days before the big event and head out on a yacht to island hop off the coast in the Adriatic Sea. Sounds super exciting?
4. A Yoga Retreat
Take a weekend off from wedding planning and chill out with your friends at a Yoga Retreat in a relaxing and beautiful beach destination. It’s the perfect treat for the bride who’s searching for a tad bit of zen and not another big party.
5. Ski Weekend
Don’t feel pressurized to indulge in a beach break for your bachelorette coz if you’re more of a snow bunny go for it. If a few friends don’t share your enthusiasm for the slopes, there’s plenty for them to do from spending the day at the spa, shopping or pigging out at the in town.
6. Wine yard Weekend
If your dream bachelorette party is catching up with your pals over wine and delicious food, then head to one of the gorgeous wineyards for the weekend.
