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.

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.

In case you and your girlfriends need to rejuvenate after your late-night bender we suggest you check out the Canyon Ranch Spa, shared by the Venetian and Palazzo hotels. 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.

How Much You Should Expect To Spend at a Bachelorette Party

Today’s brides are putting as much planning into the events leading up to their wedding as they are the big day. And while all those pre-parties are definitely upping the fun factor, they also require guests to shell out even more money to join in the celebration.

According to a 2017 survey by RetailMeNot, people spend an average of $137 for food and $116 on alcohol for a proper bachelorette bash. “[Most women] aren’t interested in spending thousands of dollars; they’re spending maybe $150 for the weekend on bachelorette activities,” says Bri Steck, CEO of Vegas Girls Night Out, a boutique party-planning concierge in Las Vegas. “Instead of doing $3,000 bottle service, they’re just going to do entry into the nightclubs and open bar for a couple hours.” Looking to save some money on your next Vegas hen party? Check out our guide to planning a cheap Vegas bachelorette party.

Steck has found that women, unlike the guys, want more bang for their buck and are willing to spend if it gets them a more VIP experience and more activities. “Women will spend on upgrades,” she says. “They’ll add on limos, they’ll add on the nightclubs, they’ll add on dinner, they’ll add on hair and makeup. They’re more likely to spend money to get a bunch of different things than just one night. It’s more that overall experience.”

Joanne Barken, founder of the Bach, an online hub for bachelorette-party planning ideas, agrees. “Bachelorette parties continue to focus more and more on the experience and less on a drunken, rowdy night out on the town,” she says. “From cooking classes to yoga retreats, more and more groups are looking at bachelorette weekends as an excuse to try something new and splurge on an experience that they wouldn’t normally try on their own.”

Part of that new experience is travel to a fresh destination—and according to the Brides 2016 American Wedding Study, 44 percent say they plan to host their bachelorette party out of town. Per the RetailMeNot findings, you can expect to spend an average of $265 on air travel for that trip—not including hotels.

Not surprisingly, more women than men are willing to shop to look their best at the bachelorette—39 percent versus 29 percent. Translation: You’ll need new clothes for those Instagram snaps, and 35 percent say they purchased a new outfit for a bachelorette. So how much do selfie-worthy new clothes cost? That’ll be $137, please.

Plus, says Barken, brides are opening their wallets for extra gifts for their squad. “We’ve seen that party favors have gotten way more elaborate,” she says. “It’s no longer just about the gifts for the bride; all of the guests are often gifted fun items such as welcome bags, hangover kits, and cute party attire.”

But before you get hung up on the dollars and cents, remember a fun time with your girls is priceless. Says Steck: “It’s all about the experience and having a really great, memorable time.”
