Best Budget Bachelorette Destinations

A bachelorette getaway before you walk down the aisle is a rite of passage—and a seriously fun one at that! But taking a trip with your besties can also be a big expenditure, and no one needs all that financial stress right before they tie the knot. Consider these budget-friendly locations that conform to a skinny wallet without taking down the tone of the trip even one notch. For the brides reading this, make sure to check out this post before you leave on the bachelorette weekend, because you’re need some white swimsuits. For the bridesmaids, trip organizers, assorted family and friends, we’ve got some bangin’ bathing suit suggestions for each destination listed below, too!


Las Vegas: For The Party Girl

A wild town if ever there was one, Vegas lets revelers of every variety go “all in” on fun (yep, that’s a pun right there). Because there are tons of hotels situated both on and off the strip, you can find great deals on rooms throughout the year. Make the decision to split a suite where you can all bunk together like it’s a sleepover or reserve a block of rooms at a discount rate if this particular gang is large and in charge. Once you’re there, hit the casinos for a little taste of lady luck while landing free drinks at the craps tables (FYI: craps has the best odds of any game). Not into gambling? Treat your bridal squad to High Roller Happy Half Hour at the LINQ observation wheel, which includes adult beverages in your very own lookout cabin high above the Vegas Strip! If you’d rather indulge in one of Sin City’s famous pool parties, check out Go Pool day club at the Flamingo, which has some of the most affordable daybed rentals around, so you can rock out for less.

Swimsuits To Pack For Las Vegas:

You and your gals will be packing swimsuits that are full lewks on their own. No need to play it safe when you’re popping bottles by the pool, right? Opt for flirty little numbers like the Green And White Stripe Off-the-shoulder Bikini, with its sweet little ties and buttons on the top. Or make a sexy statement with a retro-leaning swimsuit like the Lime Green Textured High-Waisted Bikini, which serves 80s realness with an of-the-moment edge.


Miami: For the Sun Seekers

Do you and your crew live to hit the beach? Then get yourselves to South Beach, Miami where there’s plenty of local culture and nightlife to partake in once you’ve left the confines of your surfside lounge chair. Keep prices down by checking into the mid-range boutique hotels in the Art Deco district. Spots like The Shepley, beloved by locals for its low-key charm, also happens to be very close to the very free, very fun Lummus Park beach. After dark, save a little green to spend on drinks by werking it on the dance floor at smaller clubs without cover charges like Basement, SHOTS or The Wharf. Pep up your party people the next day with a three-for-one situation at Wynwood’s R House. The seriously fierce drag brunch includes unlimited apps, bottomless mimosas and fabulous queens puttin’ on a Show with a capital S!


Swimsuits To Pack for Miami:

Embrace the tropical vibes wholeheartedly with swimwear like the Black and Palm Print Bikini. (Tou)can you think of a better two-piece swimsuit than this one? We think not. If a maillot is more your style, nothing can be cuter for your girls’ getaway in Miami than the Lush Leaves Print One-piece Swimsuit, with its green and pink leaf motif.




Santa Barbara: For the Wine Lover (Wine tasting)


Ok, so you might shudder at the thought traveling with friends for the sake of a few nightclubs. A multi-purpose locale like Santa Barbara is a sophisticated antidote. This is the ideal place for beach babes and wine lovers alike...or beach babes who are wine lovers...cheers to that! Stay close to the beachfront for less by booking a vacation rental rather than a hotel. Al Fresco-loving ladies can get some fresh air and exercise by renting a bike and heading down to East Beach for a splash in the Pacific, then wheeling around Cabrillo Boulevard afterwards. Another bachelorette-friendly idea: head to the Funk Zone (this the actual name of the place, but also possibly a state of mind?) to the Urban Wine Trail where you’ll partake in a self-guided walking tour of top tasting rooms. Going by foot while sampling local wineries’ offerings saves money on transportation, which means everyone can indulge themselves at the nearby boutiques or with an extra bottle of a special vintage to commemorate the occasion. If the bride-to-be has a sweet tooth, insist on the chocolate and wine pairing at Jamie Slone Wines’ tasting room—just make sure to book it ahead of time so they can accommodate your crew. After dark, head to The Good Lion for specialty cocktails in a speakeasy-inspired setting or break open some bottles you picked up on the wine trail and slap on some sheet masks for a fun “night in.”


Swimsuits To Pack for Santa Barbara:

Santa Barbara is an elevated sort of bachelorette party location, no? Keep it classy and sassy in a swimsuit like the Pink And Green Leaf Print Wrap One-piece. This flattering wrap style can be adjusted for a customized fit—something that’s always in style. The Navy Sport Lace-up Bikini also works for this trip. The pared-down graphics are sleek, which makes a nice contrast with the sultry lace-up back and cheeky bottom.



Austin: For The Music Maven

Brews, tunes, barbecue and so much more...Austin is the cool bride’s destination of choice for a bachelorette trip. Stay somewhere kitschy that’s easy on the wallet like The Austin Motel, with its retro kidney-shaped pool and vintage-y plastic lounge chairs. Not in the mood for chlorine? Look into the local-beloved tradition of tubing and float yourselves down the Guadalupe River. This location allows alcohol, so pack a small cooler and be sure to rent an extra tube for it. Don’t stress about dinners costing a fortune, either. Not like we needed one more thing to love about barbecue, but it’s ability to fill up a crowd without breaking the bank is almost as great as the taste. Visit ‘cue institutions like Kerlin BBQ or Franklin Barbecue for down-home eats and a casual atmosphere that’s anything but uptight.At night, check out live music along 6th street, which has iconic venues like Maggie Mae’s and Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar that can keep the whole group jamming ‘til the wee hours. Or for another unique experience, visit the weird and wonderful Container Bar for cocktails in an Instagram-friendly space made of seven repurposed shipping containers. It’s pure Austin awesomeness.


Swimsuits to Pack for Austin:

Different is beautiful, and in Austin, it’s something that’s celebrated. A two-piece swimsuit like the Smocked Yellow Bowknot Front and Floral Bikini, which features birdies a-singin’ just like the musical acts you’ll catch at night, fits the bill. For a one-piece bathing suit, prepare to fall in love with the Black One-Piece Swimsuit with Blue Tie-Dye Effect. The tie dye-inspired motif is low-key winning at fashion but the silhouette is substantial enough for an all-day tubing expedition.
