call up the hotel and tell them you’re on your bachelorette and they should be able to cut you an awesome rate!

Its easy to save money. I just came back from one. Choose cheaper restaruants and don’t rent cabanas. Pregame in the room.

Pre-game in your room. There is absolutely no way a group of girls should pay cover in Vegas, we would get on several lists just wandering around the casinos during the day. We went to Tao and Marquee (preferred Tao). Jetsetter is always having sales on hotel rooms (I think theres a Hard Rock sale right now).

You might be able to find lower rates at hotels off the Strip if you’re willing to do that – then just take a taxi to the Strip (or even walk if you’re just a few blocks away).

I don’t know if you’re more into clubs or bars/pubs, but one of my favorite bars in Vegas is Nine Fine Irishmen, at New York New York.  And I’d recommend saving money by not hitting up places where you have to pay a cover, because I think you can have a great time in Vegas without those places – but it just depends on your preference, because some people only like going to clubs.  ETA – Or take LGenz’ advice, which would make more sense.

And ditto the pre-gaming advice – plus you can carry open containers on the Strip.

i’ve been to my share of bachelorette parties in vegas.  first of all get to know a promoter and get your group on the list of the club you want to go to.  that way you don’t have to wait in line.  if you want bottle service, arrange it ahead of time but bottle service at one of the popular clubs will be at least $500 a bottle with a minimum of something like 3 girls per bottle.  if you don’t want bottle service, then just get your name on the list.  my cousin usually takes care of getting us on the list but once her guy was out of town for the weekend.  i was walking on the strip with a girl friend to grab a drink from margaritaville and we met a promoter.  i had my cousin call him and he took care of the list for us. 

bottle service is expensive but if you want a central place for everyone, it’s a must.  for the most part, the vegas clubs have small-ish dance floors and it gets crowded. the last bachelorette party i went to the girls chose marquee at the new cosmo hotel.  i didn’t like it.  it was unually cold for vegas in may and i was freezing in my dress.  i really love the layout of xs at encore.  then there are also older clubs such as jet at mirage and studio 54 at mgm that are still pretty fun.  tao at the venetian is fine. then there’s also haze at aria and tryst at the wynn. 

hotel rooms are pretty inexpensive in vegas — even on the strip.  you can bring your own drinks to your room so drink up in your room before heading out.  drinks are about $15 each.  one night, we were at xs and it was raining dollar bills on the dance floor.  we each collected over $100 and we ended up spending everything on drinks. back when i was young and single, i could easily get everyone free drinks but now that i’m older and not single, it’s no longer appropriate.

if you have a car, eating off the strip is the way to go.  I love the restaurants on spring mountain road.  i think car rental is pretty cheap in vegas — about $15 per day but most of the time i fly in and my girls from cali usually drive up.  as for cheap eats, if you’re into buffets, the buffet of buffets is a 24 hour pass for all the harrahs buffets.  I think it’s about $45.  i think the harrahs buffets are just okay but one of my favorites is still the bellagio buffet.  the buffet at the m resort is huge (the m resort is about 14 miles off the strip) and pretty decent.

one of my favorite hotels in vegas is vdara.  it’s in the center of everything but it’s smoke free and quiet.  but most vegas hotels are just fine.  i generally like to stay in the middle of the strip — city center, bellagio, paris, ph…

pm me and i can send you a link for harrah’s friends and family room deals.  i stayed at paris for $60 per night once.

I go to Vegas with my girls a lot, although we haven’t had any bachelorette parties yet!

A few cost-saving tips to reiterate/add to previous posters’:

1) When you book hotel rooms, just tell them that 2 people are staying.  They will charge you extra $$ for each additional person in the room, but they never check.  We’re always just discreet during check-in, and this always works!

2) The BEST hotel for location and group savings is the Venetian/Palazzo.  Why?

a: the standard double rooms include a large sitting area with sectionals, some of which are pull-out beds.  Lots of space to sleep extra girls AND hang out while pre-gaming

b: directly across the street is the Fashion Show Mall, for anyone who needs a last-minute item.  It’s a real mall, ranging from Forever 21 to Neiman Marcus

b2: The FS Mall has a food court.  Cheap eats!

b3: There’s a discount show ticket office at FS Mall as well, in case some (or all) of you want to catch a show!  Day-of and day-before tickets are significantly marked down!

c: There’s a liquor store just a little bit north of the Wynn/Encore hotel, within walking distance.  It just might be the ONLY acutal liquor store on the Strip.  Get booze there, discreetly take it up to your room, and pre-game your hearts out!

(sidenote: one of my favorite things about Vegas is the free alcohol!  Really- sit at a slot machine for a few minutes and a cocktail waitress will bring you whatever you want for a small tip- the better the tip, the more often she’ll come around)

This is getting long, but if you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to PM me!

I had mine in vegas and it was awesome.  We go to Vegas A LOT.  It’s very cheap for girls.

1. get a 2 bedroom suite instead of separate rooms.  It’ll be way cheaper.  The Signature is a great option with a nice pool and cheaper priced cabanas.

2.get on guest lists for clubs.  tell them you’re a bachelorette party and you’ll get in for free without a line.  My fav clubs are Tryst and XS.  Marquee is the new hot one but I wasn’t too impressed.

feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need other suggestions.  I go to Vegas A LOT.
