Your bestie is tying the knot and you're in charge of planning how to spend her numbered days as a free woman. The girls can't quite swing the most lux bachelorette party, but that doesn't mean you can't still live the Vegas Bachelorette dream!
The quick and dirty version of how to live like queens in Vegas while taking it easy on the wallet: give yourselves some time to enjoy those complimentary amenities (so. worth. it.), become BFFs with your hotel concierge, and book things in advance. The rest is here:
To get that beauty sleep - For the best value, the Palms wins. From standard rooms to super extravagant suites, the Palms has what those with all types of budgets want. From rates starting at $55 and a complimentary shuttle to and from The Forum Shops it makes staying just off-Strip totally worth it.
If there's more than 5 in your group it's worth checking out the Delano, Vdara, or The Venetian. They're all suite-style so you're guaranteed to get one no matter the price you pay. Most even have kitchenettes too so you can save a little cash on meals and drinks by bringing your own.
Pro-tip: Always tell the front desk that you're here with a bachelorette! Many times the hotels will add in a little extra something to make your stay super special.
Ahhhhhh. - Looking for a little R&R? We suggest detoxing with a day pass at the spa, that way you get full access to the facilities without paying for a full-on treatment. Our picks are: Oleksandra Spa at Treasure Island, Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace, The Spa at Monte Carlo and Spa Bellagio.
Got champagne taste with a beer budget? Get any service at the Palms Recharge Spa and get a complimentary glass of champagne.
Save on a little getting-ready time by checking out Drybar at Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile Shops. While getting the perfect blowout you can take advantage of the fully-stocked bar, DJ and photo booth.
When you're ready to partay - Tbh we all know Vegas can party, and that's why you're bringing your bachelorette here. The options for world-class nightclubs are pretty extensive and can fulfill any type of night your squad wants to have. But if you're not trying to go to the club, the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay is a great substitute for an iconic Vegas nightlife experience. The Foundation Room sits at the 63rd floor so it boasts a gorgeous view of the city, plus live music and a dance floor. You also can't go wrong with their ladies VIP special bottle service which goes for a fraction of what it would cost at the club.
Pro-tip: Contact a promoter through social media. Promoters can be a huge help to possibly getting complimentary entry and other perks—especially with a group of ladies.
Daytime vibes - You won't have a problem filling up your itinerary because there is so much a bachelorette needs to do in Vegas, even if you're on a budget. The Fashion Show, Forum Shops and LINQ Promenade are great places to walk around and browse. While you're perusing the Strip you and the girls could do a photo scavenger hunt to simultaneously document the trip and see all the main attractions.
If you're into art and want to feel like you're a part of Drake's Hotline Bling music video, check out the free James Turrell Akhob exhibit at the Louis Vuitton at the Shops at Crystals Aria. A reservation is a must at this gallery. Other places to check out free art and culture include: Arts Factory in Downtown, Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, and Downtown Container Park.
Show time! - We are all about the entertainment here, and for bachelorettes on a budget there are a ton of options. We're big fans of: Chippendale's, Thunder From Down Under, Zumanity, and Britney Spears.
Serious noms - Let's talk about the most important thing here—where's the food? First off, bachelorettes need to try the food and over-the-top sweets at Serendipity 3 at Caesars. The portions are just as generous as what's in the menu items.
The most important club you and your girls need to get into here? The brunch club. Get your fix at the following bottomless brunches: Border Grill at Mandalay Bay, Buddy V's Ristorante at The Venetian, Park on Fremont, and Tacos & Tequila.
Happiest hour - One of our favorite places to start the night is at the High Roller. For $28 you can get a Happy Half-Hour ride with an open bar. Other great drink spots are Terrace Bar at Paris Las Vegas for all-you-can-drink-beer for ladies, and for the country gals Gilley's Saloon at Treasure Island.
While the Mandarin Bar isn't necessarily for those on a strict budget, we appreciate the amazing view and live music the venue has to offer and consider it a great spot for a Bachelorette squad.
Pro-tip: While you're out, have the bride wear a tiara, veil or something that shows she's a Bachelorette. It's a lot of fun to be the bride's ultimate girl squad and it may get you some extra perks.
Getting around - Before you get here, be sure to download Uber or Lyft and search for some discount codes. Most hotels also offer complimentary shuttle service to and from McCarran International Airport. For limos, tours, and other transportation things go to lasvegas.com for some good deals.
Now that you're all primed on how to bachelorette in Vegas at a minimal cost, we highly encourage you to pack those club dresses, grab your highest heels, and give your bride the time of her life!
