Your Bachelorette party before your big day is as important as choosing your life partner. You are about to enter the life you have never known before. Even if you have been in a live-in relationship prior to your marriage, it will not be exactly the same thing. Bachelorette party has lost its glory, for the millennial. If you’re bestie of the bride and planning a themed party maybe, let me tell you, that is old news now. Maybe, you can do that when you’re at a different destination already and throw a party for her nevertheless. But the last trip is a must.
And also to the bride, all your friends need the last fun you, the single you, before you are no more just responsible for yourself. Provide them with that last gift of togetherness away from the bustling and distracting families which inevitably descent if you’re planning your big day.
So, if you’re planning a wedding this end of summer or during the fall, this period is the best time for you t arrange for a bachelorette trip with your besties. Carry your bikini and your floral summer dresses and your shorts and of course, some SPF, because sun-tan is attractive, tan lines are not when they are visible through your clean white dress on your big day.
While Seattle can be quite rainy, dark and snowy during the winter and monsoons, summer in Seattle is especially, the idea of a bachelorette party is fun and vibrant offering a perfect mix of outdoorsy escapism and urban accouterments for your diverse bridal party.
Pike Place market is a must-go-to place for would-be-brides—and also the friends of the bride can also find places to shop, eat, and of course, an amazing opportunity for Instagram posts. If you’re occasionally nerdy (or maybe all the time!)get your culture fix at the Museum of Pop Culture, discover the views of the Puget Sound with kayak rental, or ride the Seattle Great Wheel for unforgettable skyline sighting.
If you and your girls want booze, head to Fremont or Pioneer Square, where indie galleries and hip bars have outdoor seating arrangements. You can also try Woodinville Wine Country, located just 30 minutes outside downtown, where you’ll find dozens of wineries to tour and savor; the perfect spot for bachelorette gang.
Finger Lakes, New York
This region in upstate New York is great for the wine lovers and especially, the kind of bride who’d like to have a quieter, more serene sort of time before the start of the upheaval that weddings always bring. If you want to take the tour around the places where you can enjoy the best of wine tasting and vineyard tours around you should go to the scenic Seneca, Cayuga, and Keuka Lake Wine Trails.
It’s definitely not like there is nothing else except for the wine tasting and vineyard tours. There is plenty of options for you to escape your room and get on with the trip on a horse-back maybe if you want a more natural feel. Or maybe you can make a trip to the Rockwell Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate that highlights Native American artifacts.
Similar to Paris, the capital of Catalonia is a great place for a bachelorette gang because of the abundance of bars and spas, giving fiancées and their friends plenty of options when it comes to not only relaxing but having a good time.
Bachelorette party planners who are eyeing Spain but want an option less expensive than Barcelona can consider Valencia as their hen party zone and save money for it. You get to go to Spain all the same, but save a lot of bucks when it comes to comparison with the tourist-heavy Barcelona.
Prague, Czech Republic
You may have taken Prague into account as a place where you can go for your honeymoon, but Prague is also good when it comes to the final see off before your big day. The cobbled streets and the heritage Europe charm is something that makes you think of it as a perfect place to roam hand-in-hand you’re your new hubby. But think twice! Much like Lisbon, Prague can be a great choice for its affordability and safety. You have to spend less right before your wedding and your would-be can also sleep in peace knowing that you’re in one of the safest cities around the world with your girls (just in case he is the worrying type). It also doesn’t hurt that it’s among Europe’s prettiest cities.
