After attending countless wedding events and building an online platform for bachelorette party planning, I’ve found that there is so much more to these events than simply choosing activities, and party favors. Where you stay really matters! Here are just a few ways renting a house can make your next bachelorette bash one for the books.
You Need a Place to Relax with the Bride-to-be
Bridesmaids often make the mistake of over booking the bachelorette party with way too many activities. It can be tiring and stressful to shuffle a large group of people from one venue to the next all weekend long. Some of my favorite memories from bachelorette parties involve just hanging out with the bride and her closest friends. A rental house gives you and your girls the chance to relax by the pool in the summer or by the fireplace in the winter, and plenty of space to decorate for the party or host a pre-game.
You Can Cut Costs While Staying Someplace Luxurious
It’s no secret that destination bachelorette parties can put a serious dent in your bank account. Combine that with travel expenses for the wedding, bridesmaid dresses, and gifts, and pretty soon you are looking at some scary credit card bills.
Opting to rent a house instead of booking hotel rooms can be an excellent way to cut bachelorette party costs. Typically you will find that the total cost of a lavish home is much cheaper than rooms at a high-end hotel. Plus with a full kitchen you can easily prepare some of your meals at the house instead of dining out multiple times a day.

You Can Explore Offbeat Bachelorette Party Destinations
Many brides do not want the stereotypical bachelorette party in Las Vegas or Miami. For example, I am planning a bachelorette party for a close friend this summer. She requested a “relaxing weekend with the girls” and did not want the “party scene.” I quickly jumped on HomeAway and found us an adorable house in the North Fork area. We’ll be staying in a quaint town that is lacking hotel options but had tons of great rental options. House rentals make it easy for groups to explore these smaller, more remote destinations. If you’re planning a party in a secluded vacation area like Nantucket or The Hamptons, a rental house is the easiest way to ensure your whole group can find accommodations together.
