Get ready to pack your bags for a fun evening out or weekend away with your best girls! We’ve got all the deets on how to fulfill the ultimate bachelorette party from sourcing a planner, to gifts for your squad, to where to stay and eat. Enjoy these helpful tips (and be sure to shoot this link over to your maid of honor!). Cheers!


Party – Sometimes when planning the biggest day of your life – i.e. your wedding day – thinking about your events leading up to the day can be a little overwhelming. Fling Before the Ring is ready to take your bachelorette party out of your hands and plan your dream retreat for you and your gals. That’s less time worrying and more time playing! Simply pick your party date and destination, then get ready to pop the champagne! Contact Nikki here to get started – she’ll prep your itinerary, secure dining and hotel reservations, provide “Bach Bags” full of swag for the event and will even stay on-call during your trip for any emergencies that arise (plus she has a whole list of a la carte additions to choose from).


Drinks – We’re always on the lookout for fresh new cocktail recipes to shake up our events. Luckily, Nutrition by Kara Stout is our go-to for finding delicious, healthy recipes and she’s shared two we’re dying to serve at our next party. We suggest mixing her Watermelon Wine Cooler (complete with edible cocktail topper) or Cucumber Mint Sangria (tasted and approved!) at your bachelorette party! Be sure to follow Kara’s blog for her continuous recipe and cocktail additions. And if you’re interested in a nutrition plan leading up to the big day, Kara’s your girl! See her services here.

Dinner – One of the key things on the bachelorette party checklist? Dinner. Take a look at some of our favorite ATX restaurants here – perfect for dining with your gals.

Gift – Swag for your party-goers is a MUST. We love the idea of custom gifts, and our first stop for individualized prezzies is Must Be Monogrammed. While MBM offers the usual monogrammed bags, hats, keychains, shirts, koozies, mugs, etc, owner Kelsie is equipped to custom embroider or decal anything you could want to gift!
Another fab gifting option is the custom boxes from June Box. June Box has a variety of standard boxes to choose from each packed with four goodies for the giftee. Or if you’re looking for something a little more personal, she’s happy to work with you on custom boxes – you may have seen our recent boxes from our annual creative conference packed with Brides of Austin coffee tumblers and a mix of notebooks, candles, cards, lip gloss and rock candy, specially packed for us! These are also both great places to start for bridesmaid gift shopping!
Hotel – We’re dead set on staying in luxury rentals for such a fun event. NEST Vacation Rentals are our go-to when staying in the ATX metro. Take a peek at their list of rental options to choose from – ranging in price point and style. We love the idea of booking a space with a pool for an afternoon chill session before heading out for the night.
Beyond the home rentals, Austin has some the BEST hotel accommodations. Take a peek at our list of first class hotels and rentals here to choose from.
