Bride & Groom Parties
Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties that put the ‘We’ in ‘Wedding’
It's no secret that from the moment your friends learn you are getting married; their happy thoughts transform to party thoughts filled with countless ideas to make your bachelor or bachelorette party the event of the year.
Not the Vegas type, that's okay, there are many ways to commemorate this pre-wedding milestone with style that won't bind you to uphold the ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas' motto. A bachelor or bachelorette party can be anything from a day at the spa to a golf getaway to a beachfront lounging experience.
Although your besties are planning your bachelor or bachelorette party, it never hurts to give them some direction when it comes to your "last night of freedom." Here are some ideas for making your bachelor or bachelorette party one to remember.
Where the Wild Things Are: For the outdoor, adventure type; why not consider a back-to-nature bachelorette party with style? Mountain properties like Vail Cascade Resort & Spa, Resort at Squaw Creek, The Gant Aspen, or The Hotel Telluride are upscale base camps that can lure even the most domesticated urban chics and chicos to head outdoors. Pick your season and have fun hiking, canoeing, fishing, skiing, dog sledding or mountain biking in nature's playground. After all, a little dirt don't hurt - especially if award-winning amenities and services await at the hotel!
Ahhhh sssspppaa: For the girls that want to have fun - and actually remember it the next day, spa bachelorette parties offer a great alternative to an evening of debauchery. Suggest a weekend spa party and send everyone running for their plush terry robes and hair clips. Choose a full-service spa resort like Miramonte Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, CA, the Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, AZ, or the Inn and Spa at Loretto in Santa Fe, NM that offer endless options to wine, dine and unwind in comfort and elegance.
Tee Time: If you live for golf, then you know that every season is golf season. And what better way to enjoy the game than with friends. Challenge your buddies to a round of golf at resorts like Stowe Mountain Lodge in Stowe, VT, Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA, Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA or The Inverness Hotel in Denver, CO and enjoy the thrill of friendly rivalry, mobile beverages and picturesque fairways.
Seashells by the Seashore with Sangrias: If you are a sun worshiper by day then consider a beachfront escape for you and your friends. Trade in the heels for sandals and the suits for swim trunks and enjoy the beach access from hotels like Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, SC, L'Auberge Delmar or Paradise Point Resort in San Diego, CA or Destination Resorts Hawaii in Wailea, Maui, HI. Hit the ocean for some surfing or boogey boarding or set up net for a round of beach volleyball. Beautiful scenery is just the icing on the cake.
The Car, James: Dance clubs, bars, pool halls, strip joints -- why choose just one? Explore them all in the lap of luxury. Centrally located, urban properties like The Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX, Tempe Mission Palms in Tempe, AZ, The Madison in Washington DC, or the Red Lion Fifth Avenue Hotel in Seattle, WA, are the perfect starting point for a night out on the town with friends. Work with hotel staff to coordinate a limousine or party bus for the evening and hit the streets for an evening packed with VIP treatment and fun.
