Always the bridesmaid, never the bride? Stuck planning the bachelorette party? If that’s you, make it a Las Vegas party, and that way, everyone wins! Sin City is full of amazing things to do, see, and eat! Check out our list (and infographic!) for how to plan a spectacular bachelorette party in Las Vegas!
Pick the Right Hotel
When planning a bachelorette party in Las Vegas, the hotel you choose is key. Think about the bride, and what her style is – will she want to party the weekend away, or relax by the pool? Does she want high energy, or something a bit more laid back?
First, narrow down whether you think she’d like to stay on The Strip or not. The benefits are many – access to pool parties, clubs, bars, shopping, restaurants, and more! The (potential) downside, however, is it’s crowded, noisy, and goes all hours. If you’re looking for party central, check out these Strip hotels:
- Caesars (the pool parties are BEYOND)
- The Wynn – Encore Beach Club
- The Cromwell – Drai’s
- The Cosmopolitan
If you want to stay on The Strip, but want something a little less crazy, try The Aria or The Wynn.
There are also tons of places to stay off The Strip – you’ll get all the glitz, glamor, and pampering, without the crazy parties and crowds. For example, Lake Las Vegas! Or try staying further out in Henderson or Summerlin. These mature, laid back places still give you proximity to The Strip, but you can always come back for a nice, relaxing night in. Check out these hotels off The Strip:
Relax at a Spa
Planning a wedding can be insanely stressful, so make sure you treat the bride (and yourselves) to a relaxing spa day. Vegas has hundreds of amazing spas and salons, many of which are located inside hotels on The Strip. When booking your hotel, check out the spas and see what kind of rates and packages they have! For example,or for a Roman-inspired relaxation day, check out QUA at Caesars, where you’ll find steam rooms, ice rooms, jacuzzis, saunas, and more! Or head over to The Aria for a mega list of treatments, including facials, massages, personal training, hair care, and more.
