You just heard that your best friend or close sibling is getting married, and through all that jealousy and rage for her ability to find a suitor, you know the right thing to do is to throw her the best bachelorette party you can think of. You may immediately think that, being in Vegas, you have a pretty easy road ahead of you, but you’re really facing a double-edged sword. Vegas offers a plethora of entertainment, which makes the planning process all the more difficult. To plan the perfect Sin City bachelorette party, you really need to know the bride-to-be. Is she a night person? Does she like raunchy activities? What kind of food does she like? Seriously, you’re going to be in a bind; so we here at Bachelorette Vegas have whipped up a little guide for you. Just a little something from us to you to make sure that your bachelorette party planning goes as smooth as possible. You’ll find tips for how to handle the day, the afternoon, the evening, and those nighttime hours when Sin City truly comes alive.
Starting Off Right
If you having shopped already check out Miracle Miles Shops at Planet Hollywood or Outlet Mall off of Charleston and I-15. There isn’t many options to buy goods for bachelorette parties in Sin City, very few offered in stores costs three times of what it would cost online, so check out online stores like thehouseofbachelorette.com or you can visit Chippendales Boutique.
Now, you don’t want to wake the party girl up too early, as you want her to have energy for the rest of the day, but don’t let her sleep until noon. Start her day off with something truly relaxing, like a day at the spa. This is Vegas, so no matter what hotel you’re staying in (or, if you’re a local, which hotel you plan on crashing at), you will find yourself in close proximity of some of the best spas on the west coast. One standout establishment is the spa at Caesar’s Palace. Qua Bath and Spa presents itself much like a Grecian bathhouse with a vast range of services including stone massages, oil therapies, and aromatherapy.
The relaxing nature of the spa is bound to start the bachelorette’s day off perfectly and give her the strength she needs for the inevitable party that’s to follow. While she’s getting all massaged, why not get her a coffee from one of the nearby cafes – make her feel truly special and give her the allure that you’re not planning to get her completely drunk later on.
While the Sun’s Still Hot
Soaking in the desert sun is one of the best ways to get energized; but sometimes a trip to the pool needs to be accompanied by something a little more thrilling. Luckily, this is Vegas, and of course the pools come with their own running supply of alcohol. Pool parties up and down the Las Vegas Strip promote a nightlife-esque atmosphere in the sun.
To guarantee the best time for your bachelorette, be sure to plan ahead and reserve a cabana or bungalow. There are slight variations on what each pool club offers, but generally a cabana or bungalow comes with privatized seating complete with mini-bar, television, air conditioning, and private waiter service. This will give the bachelorette and her party the chance to soak in the rays while still giving you all a place to retreat to when the sun gets to be too hot.
It may be arguable, but one of the best places for bungalow rentals is at the Encore Beach Club. These spaces are more like apartments than anything else and offer a completely private setting with a view of the pool below.
Included in your somewhat pricey rental is a bathroom. Yes – your own private bathroom; a place where you can do your business without other girls giggling drunkenly at themselves in the mirror. You also have a good view of the Strip from the bungalow’s balcony, so you can do some mild reflecting on your lack of a man while people watching.
Encore Beach Club rentals may be pricey, but the cost is easily offset when you book through Bachelorette Vegas!
It’s almost time for the big event at nightfall, but there are still some hours to burn away. Your bride is probably a little hungry after all that partying and relaxing, so why not treat her to some of Las Vegas’ delicious cuisine. Here’s where knowing your bachelorette really comes in to play. Does she like a certain type of food? Is she allergic to anything? What’s her stance on buffets? If you know these, then you can push forward.
You may think a buffet is the best bet as you get a lot of food for your money, but when people are in a party, they tend to prefer a sit down restaurant where they can just continuously chatter; so you may want to stray away from Sin City’s line-up of buffets. Rather, why not look at places like Firefly, a tapas bar with a flare for perfection and originality. At Firefly, guests are encouraged to enjoy the casual atmosphere while indulging in 5-star dishes. The wine bar makes for the perfect ice breaker, offering numerous different types of merlots and sauvignon blancs.
Remind your bachelorette that this will be her last meal before the real festivities start, just so she can gauge how much she should eat.
One thing Las Vegas is not short on is nightclubs. From the very northern tip all the way to the southern end, Las Vegas Blvd is home to dozens of nightlife establishments, all offering differing atmospheres and varying cliental. Some of the hottest nightclubs you could go for, though, include Chateau at the Paris, Bellagio’s Hyde, and MGM Grand’s Hakkasan. These nightclubs can be found within a two mile radius of one another, but their differences set them miles apart.
If your bachelorette is more into a quieter time, you will want to check out Hyde. This lounge-like establishmentoffers exquisite views of the Fountains of Bellagio and a toned down setting akin to an Italian villa. A step beyond Hyde is Chateau. Located beneath the Eiffel Tower, Chateau supports a full-on nightclub feel with the added benefit of an outdoor area. People watch or simply take in the fresh air within the Gardens of Chateau, how the space is utilized is up to you and the lady of the night.
Things get a little heated at a club like Hakkasan, MGM Grand’s newest nightclub establishment. Since you already ate, you can skip the first floor restaurant (or you can use Hakkasan as your dining option) and move on up to the third floor. On this floor is the Ling Ling Lounge, a quieter space to hang out. Above Ling Ling stands the nightclub itself, in all its high energy glory. Even one more floor up from that is an outdoor space, home to its own bar and dance floor.
It’s easy to decide where to go when you know what type of girl your bachelorette is. The strict party girl will want a place like Hakkasan or even Marquee at the Cosmopolitan. Somebody a little more toned down will fair better at places like Hyde and Chateau.
The After Party, Party
Nightclubs are good for a few hours, but even they can grow stale. Don’t let the party grow cold, though; move on from your nightclub of choice to, you guessed it, a strip club. There are lots in Las Vegas, but few have male revues for those women’s parties. The most notable male revues, complete with audience participation, include Australia’s Thunder from Down Under, Chippendales, and the Men of Sapphire.
These shows cater to the bachelorette party and will often seek out those ladies in celebration. If they can hone in on one, they will pull them on-stage for an up close and personal show. No matter which show you choose, you will be treated to chiseled bodies, hunky guys, and plenty of entertainment.
In a Nutshell…
So, in a nutshell, those are the steps in planning the perfect bachelorette party. Follow them as close as possible and you will be guaranteed to be remembered by the bride to be and her friends for being able to throw a daylong bash. Just don’t give away the secret that you worked with us here at Bachelorette Vegas…
… Or do give away the secret, actually. Maybe one of them will be back here soon enough for you.
