How to Plan a Bachelorette Party

The team at Zola reached out to me about sharing their super cute post of Bachelorette party ideas. I asked for even more details for the person planning the party. What’s a good timeline? When should you start planning? What should you do 1 month before the party? One week before the party? And they delivered! I hope you find this post as helpful as I did!

Throwing a bachelorette party is the ultimate way to celebrating your bestie bride. This bash will gather the bridal party (and possibly some other close friends) together for one last fling before the ring.

5 Easy and Affordable Bachelorette Party Ideas

I recently threw my friend Jessica Jay (who does my gorgeous eyelash extensions) a bachelorette pool party and wanted to share some ideas! Jessica is an amazingly kind and thoughtful friend and knew her friends are not rich (yet) so it was super important that the party was not only really fun, but reasonable affordable too. We had her bachelorette party at the Freehand Downtown LA rooftop pool and hotel room.

I’ve also helped prep for a Vegas Bachelorette Party, a Bachelorette Party on a Catamaran in Nicaragua, and a Tropical Bridal Shower if you need even more party planning ideas be sure to check those out!.

What To Do in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua

As I mentioned before in my Nicaragua Travel Tips and Visiting Granada I went down to Nicaragua in mid-June 2017 for my sister’s wedding and had the best trip of my whole life. I have a couple wedding pics on this post, but to see all of the incredible professional photos by her photographer Chelsea Erwin be sure to check out Chelsea’s blog post. My sister and her husband are seriously like models you will die.

We spent a whole week in a little beach town on the west coast (Pacific Ocean side) called San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. Before traveling to Nicaragua I heavily lurked the amazing Instagram account @discovernicaragua which gave me so many great ideas for places to visit!

San Juan Del Sur is a popular place for surfers, college students, backpackers, and yoga retreat goers, but if you don’t fit into one of those categories this place can still be an amazing destination to visit! PS If the pictures are making these recommendations hard to follow, scroll all the way to the end for an outlined list of all of the places I mentioned here!

Disclaimer: Let’s keep it real. Nicaragua is a developing country. These are photos of beautiful mansions and yoga studios and restaurants that we were privileged enough to travel to. Most of these places are right next to homes with no electricity where some of the locals live which are not pictured. The people we met in Nicaragua were amazing and kind and loving which made the trip that much better. But things in Nicaragua are going to be different then back home- all of our houses had gates, full-time security, and drivers that would drop us off, wait for us to finish whatever activity we were doing, and be right outside ready to take us home after dinner or the bar. I never ever felt unsafe in Nicaragua for one second, but I did have these added luxuries. I was reminded of this when I showed my dad some photos and videos and he said “I feel like you went to a different Nicaragua than I did.” I want everyone that books a trip there to keep this in mind, I am only showing you one side of beautiful Nicaragua, but there is more to the picture than what you are going to see in this blog post. That being said, I highly highly recommend you check it out for yourself!
