I wanted a local bachelorette party because i thought it was really unfair to saddle my friends with expensive plans! We had a spa day and a nice dinner and cocktails. It was great!!

BeeutifulBee:  We went to Las Vegas for mine. We were a group of 12 or 13. We live in Los Angeles so Vegas is fairly close. 5 hour car ride or 40 minute plane ride. 

We all stayed at a 4 bedroom penthouse which was amazing!!! 

It was a pretty expensive weekend to be honest…. but we all love Vegas so we don’t mind spending a bit more to celebrate one of our own.

Didn’t have one, if I would have I woudn’t have traveled anywhere. I think you should check with your girls first to make sure they have the desire and can afford to travel. Then realize you will be excluding the girls who can’t afford a trip like that, which is rude to me. I think having a local party where everyone could attend is a lot more reasonable. Just my honest opinion.

My bridesmaids and friends are scattered across the country, so there is no ‘local party’ I could have. We have decided on a weekend in Nashville. it will be about a 2 hour flight for everyone and is the most central location. I of course do feel badly that they have to spend the money but a) I’m paying for their outfits for the wedding b) not having a bridal shower c) requesting a no gifts/cash for our wedding and d) going to cover the cost of the airbnb rental for everyone in Nashville so all they have to pay for is the flight and food/fun during our time there. All in all, my bridal party is spending wayyyy less on my wedding than average.

My plan is to go to Southern California since that’s where my Maid/Matron of Honor is, and that’s where she and I grew up. We always said that we would do our bachelorettes together at Disneyland and surrounding Anaheim area. My local bridesmaid is coming too since she’s never been before. If all of my bridesmaids were local, I probably would have just stayed here or gone up to Baltimore or Annapolis though.

I didn’t have a bachelorette formally, really.  My BM’s were from all over hte country.

I had some local girlfriends who were coming to the wedding that threw me a night out on the town (about a 25 minute ride, and my friend gave me a ride home!) which was perfect.  I’m a very low key person, so we just bar hopped and I got a bottle of champagne with sparklers at the last bar!

When my BM’s all arrived, we went out to brunch, shopped all day and then went to the korean spa and all got body scrubs in the evening.  I loved my wedding weekend!

We went to a Brewer game at Miller Park (about an hour away) because I love the Brewers.  There was 8 of us and we had a blast.

We had an amazing summer camp themed weekend at my MOHs family’s ski house in Stratton VT. We rolled around all weekend in a refurbed 1983 VW Vanagon and went lake swimming, kayaking, one nice dinner out. They surprised me with cheesy “spirit animal” tees for the group from 711 and then a trip to the country fair (in tees) to ride the rides and hit up the petting zoo. It was magical. We also got to drink a 4.5 liter bottle of Veuve Cliquot. YASSSS.

i am now obsessed with my fancy wizard cat tee souvenier of the weekend.

BeeutifulBee:  you might like to travel but it might not be the way your friend want to spend their travel budget. Don’t forget that there is a ton of pressure on ladies to accept the invite even if it’s not something that they actually want to do. You being the bride doesnt mean you have permission to spend other people’s money. Tread lightly.
