Having trouble planning your bachelorette / hen party? Well if you’re thinking Sin City, bright lights, and booze-fueled benders, then you’ve come to the perfect corner of the web. Las Vegas, the city practically designed for soon-to-be-brides and their posse of bridesmaid girlfriends, is the best place to make all of your wild party dreams come true. However, brimming with endless possibilities for hedonistic indulgence, planning the perfect night in Sin City can be a bit of a challenge.

Luckily, you have Discotech to help you recreate The Hangover –bachelorette edition, for a night that you and your girlfriends will be talking about for decades. Here is a list of 5 of our favorite activities and party packages for your final night of freedom. You only get married once (ideally), so there is absolutely no excuse not to pop some over-priced champagne and have a high quality night filled with pleasure, plastic tiaras, and penis-shaped party favors.

1. Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub

Marquee has it all, for those of you who do not want to hop around town. Start of your festivities at their day club for an epic pool party, before heading to their nightclub. Marquee really takes care of you, as the packages they offer are truly one-of-a-kind. For example, with their Rent the Runway package, you’ll get a Grand Cabana at the day club, an hour of open bar, a dress from Rent the Runway (you don’t even have to pack a dress!), and VIP entry to the nightclub. A little tip from us is to buy the higher tier of the package to skip the line completely. On top of that, additional packages include ERA by Ciara for in-room makeup and Gimme Some Sugar for cupcakes on your VIP table to spruce up the celebrations.

This place is the Disneyland of spas, offering an impressive 134,000-square-feet of fitness classes, a rock-climbing wall, Aquavana thermal suite, spa packages, healthy spa cuisine, and of course— a VIP bridal suite where you and your girlfriends can get pampered with mimosas (remember, the fastest way to cure a hangover is to pour yourself a cocktail). We suggest you grab lunch at the Canyon Ranch Grill and lounge in the salt grotto after exploring the rest of the spa. After a day at the Canyon Ranch Spa, we can guarantee you will feel like a million bucks.

Hakkasan is probably the most monstrously LIT club on Vegas nightlife block. This five story gargantuan venue has a shocking 7,000+ capacity, complete with technicolor lighting and massive video/LED screens, which cost an estimated $200 million to build. On top of that, this colossal nightclub boasts various restaurants, lounges, and different dance floor zones to accommodate all of your bachelorette party needs. A downside to Hakkasan is the ridiculous amount of stairs, which may be annoying if you and your girlfriends are strutting around in high heels. But their Custom Concierge Service is stocked with all types of all-inclusive bachelorette catered party packages, from VIP table service, Lounge Specials, Daylife Pool Parties, VIP transportation, as well as access to Vegas’s best male review shows.

In case you need to burn off those raspberry Cosmopolitans, we recommend you stop by Stripper 101, which is exactly what it sounds like: professional pole dancing lessons taught to you by real strippers! A huge favorite among bachelorette parties in Las Vegas, Stripper 101 has been featured on E! News, Cosmopolitan, and the Daily Ten. This fun and crazy workout, dubbed the “Night school for girls” will have you feeling toned and club-ready in no time.

Whatever you and your girlfriends choose to do, remember to drink plenty of water and stay safe. Also we suggest packing your most comfortable pair of heels (or extra flip flops) because there will be a LOT of walking happening. Last but not least, remember to have fun and bask in the glory of Las Vegas as well as the present moment of celebrating YOU.

Cheap Las Vegas Bachelorette (Hen) Parties on a Budget

Planning a cheap bachelorette in Las Vegas for your bestie? You’re in luck! Vegas is one of the best cities to throw the bride-to-be an epic party without breaking the bank. Here are 6 tips and tricks to keep the costs low and the fun levels high throughout the festivities:

1. Plan your travel early for your budget bachelorette

Plan your budget bachelorette at least 3-4 months in advance so your group can save on flight deals and hotels. Vegas’s hotel market is very competitive, which means many of them offer excellent amenities at a great price. Staying at a hotel on the Strip also reduces transportation costs, especially if you choose to walk. Also, some hotels, like the Palazzo, have suites that could fit 6 people. This can be more economical than getting 2 rooms if you don’t mind squeezing. Alternatively, if you have a larger group that wants to stay in the same house….

2. Consider vacation rentals instead of hotels 

Depending on the size of your budget bachelorette, it may be cheaper to book a condo or house through AirBnb or VRBO instead of getting a hotel. Most likely, you can find an upscale rental for a per-person price that’s more affordable than many hotels. If you choose to go this route, it may also be cheaper to book a shuttle instead of relying on multiple Ubers to go back and forth from the Strip.

3. Take advantage of free activities

You don’t have to bet money at the casinos or buy $$$ tickets to shows to have a good time in Vegas since there are plenty of free activities as well! Vegas features warm weather most of the year, which means you can spend time outdoors by the pool, people-watching on the Strip, or even hiking in the nearby Red Rocks Canyon. Other free Las Vegas activities include watching the Bellagio Fountains, the Mirage volcano eruption, taking in the sights and smells at the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and checking out the wildlife at the Flamingo. You can also play bachelorette party games, which are a fun way to celebrate the bride-to-be without going out. Chances are, the other bachelorette guests will appreciate a chill daytime activity before a big night out.

4. Sign-up for free guestlists at dayclubs and nightclubs

This is key! As an entourage of all-ladies, you’re going to have a big advantage getting into the hottest clubs in Vegas at little-to-no cost. Your group will be able to get in free to many clubs, and maybe even snag complimentary bottle service depending on the venue, time of year, and headlining DJ. Many clubs will offer cheaper bottle service packages for groups of girls. Use the Discotech app to look up events, compare prices, sign up for guestlists, buy tickets, and reserve tables. Keep in mind that for almost all free Las Vegas guestlists, you’ll need to be at the door by a certain cut-off time, usually by 11:30pm for nightclubs. Lines in Vegas for popular clubs can be long, so you should arrive at the club earlier to have ample time to get in. If you know you might have a hard time getting your group moving, we recommend buying tickets, which are good for admission all night.

5. Pregame 

Drinks in Las Vegas add up, especially at the club, where your average cocktail runs $12+. To help cut costs for your budget bachelorette party, pick up drinks beforehand to pregame. Alternatively, use an alcohol delivery app to have it sent straight to your door! This way, you’ll have a nice buzz going the moment you step inside the party and save money to boot.

6. Be social!

Remember, everyone is in Vegas to have a fantastic time. Chances are, there are a couple of stag parties out and about hoping to meet a group of lovely ladies to treat to drinks and entertain. Don’t be shy! Hey, it doesn’t hurt your wallet either.

These 6 tips and tricks should help you plan the best budget bachelorette for your lucky gal pal. Who knew having fun in Sin City could be this affordable?
