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!
