Budget Bachelorette Party
So, your bestie has decided to marry the man of her dreams, and now she wants to celebrate her bachelorette party in Las Vegas, Nevada, the party capital of the world. She put you in charge of making it fun, exciting, and unforgettable, and most importantly, affordable.
Planning a budget-friendly bachelorette party in a city filled with some of the most expensive hotel rooms, restaurants, shows, and clubs in the world can be a daunting task, even for the most experienced “penny-pinching” party planner.
The most important part of planning the trip is, of course, the budget. As you may well know, creating a budget is not easy, especially when you’re talking about hundreds and potentially thousands of dollars for flights, hotel accommodations, food, drinks, and activities. Remember, this is a happy time for your bride-to-be, so make sure when discussing the budget, you keep things positive. First, find out how much money everyone can afford and then plan accordingly. An important tip is to separate the party costs from travel and accommodation costs. We recommend budgeting the costs equally among the group; that way, each member pays an equal share, and this reduces the drama that can unfold if one person is paying more than someone else in the group.
Where to Stay in Sin City
With more than 30 different hotels and resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, deciding on where to stay can also be challenging. The most popular places to stay for bachelorette parties are The Cosmopolitan, Encore / Wynn, and The Venetian. These properties are the epitome of class, filled with luxurious amenities and stunning décor. However, they are pricey, especially when you add on daily resort fees of $40-$60 and taxes to the nightly rate.
Vacation rentals and Airbnb’s have become popular places for groups to stay. There are many different options, including mansions for larger groups. The added privacy of these rentals, along with the extra space and reduced costs, compared to many of the properties on The Strip, is a definite advantage; however, then you have to factor in the price of Ubers, taxis, or our limo services which can add up quickly.
- Expensive High-End Hotels (For those who love the motto: “You only live once” and want to go all out) – The Cosmopolitan, Aria, Encore, Wynn, The Venetian, Palazzo, Caesars Palace, Bellagio, and Vdara
- Middle of the Road Hotels (For those who don’t mind spending a few extra dollars) – Mandalay Bay, Planet Hollywood, Paris, The Mirage, MGM Signature, Palms, Park MGM, MGM Grand, New York-New York, and the Sahara
- Bottom of the Barrel Budget Hotels (For those who plan to spend most of the time out and about and just need a bed and a shower) – Circus Circus, The LINQ, Luxor, Excalibur, Tropicana, Bally’s, Flamingo, Treasure Island, and The STRAT
Daytime and Nighttime Activities
The nightlife and daylife party scene will undoubtedly be your go-to move for most of the weekend as the beach clubs and nightclubs are ideal for Bachelorette and Bachelor party celebrations. Bottle Service is the most sought-after VIP amenity for many bachelorettes. Again, like the hotels, there are higher-end clubs and budget-friendly clubs.
- Expensive Clubs – Wet Republic, Encore Beach Club, Marquee, XS Nightclub, Omnia Nightclub, Hakkasan Nightclub, and Drai’s Nightclub
- Budget-friendly Clubs – On The Record, TAO, Foundation Room, Light, Chateau, APEX, VooDoo, Daylight, Drai’s Beach Club, Jemaa, Moorea, and Bare
At Bachelorette Vegas, we have connections with every nightlife and daylife venue in the city, and we have exclusive, all-inclusive bottle deals that can make the budgeting and splitting up the money easy for you and your group. If Bottle Service is a bit too expensive for your group, we work with many of the Club Crawls that include transportation and entry up to three different clubs in one night. These crawls are a great way to experience the nightlife variety while saving a few bucks and lots of time on entry fees and long lines.
Be sure to check out our Ultimate Nightclub Guide and our Ultimate Dayclub Guide for more detailed information and pricing. Or give us a call at @ +1-702-850-8044 or click here to submit a contact form via email with your request.
Not only is the Las Vegas dayclub and nightclub scene the best in the world, it also rivals Broadway in New York City as one of the premier destinations for large scale productions and shows with full audience members. For most Bachelorettes, however, the main attraction at the top of the to-do list is an adult-themed male revue. Shows like Chippendales , Magic Mike Live, and Thunder from Down Under are extremely popular, and we highly recommend that your group put at least one of these shows into your bachelorette budget. As for the adult variety shows, check out some of the options below:
- Expensive Shows – Cirque Du Solei Shows including O, Zumanity, Mystère, KA, Michael Jackson One, Beatles Love, Absinthe, Atomic Saloon Show, Opium, David Copperfield, and Criss Angel’s Mindfreak
- Value Shows – Chippendales, Thunder From Down Under, Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man, Drag Brunch at Señor Frog’s, Mat Franco – Magic Reinvented Nightly, V – The Ultimate Variety Show, Men of Sapphire, Kings of Hustler, and Men of Vegas
At some point, during your weekend, you and your group will likely want to take time out to be a tourist. Some of the best activities in Vegas are surprisingly free from the ever-evolving Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat, the Fremont Street Experience (Old Vegas), The LINQ Promenade, The Volcano at the Mirage, and of course the most famous attraction of them all and an absolute-must visit for a bachelorette group photo is the iconic landmark, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.
If you want to take sightseeing to a new level, both literally and figuratively, then head to the LINQ Promenade and “party in a pod” for a 30-minute ride on the High Roller. At 550 feet, this is the world’s tallest Ferris Wheel. It provides stunning 360-degree views of the city, the skyline, and the Las Vegas Strip below with an opportunity to take tons of photos for you and your group to share on social media and look back on for years to come. The cost is affordable, around $25 per person after taxes and fees. And if you want to make the most out of this experience, then upgrade to the Open Bar in the Sky option. In a few select pods, there is a full bar set up, complete with a bartender, to pour unlimited drinks for the entire 30 minutes it takes to complete one revolution.

Strip Pole Class
When it comes to bachelorette bash in Vegas, most girls think of drinking copious amounts of alcohol, wearing fancy and/or skimpy dress attire, and participating in some form of stripper-related activity. While many girls ante up and go straight to the strip club to throw some “Benjamins” at smoking hot men or women strippers. A sophisticated and enlightened few start their weekends off with learning how to be the stripper instead. At the Stripper 101 Pole Dancing Class at the V Theater inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood is a cheap and fun group activity for any Bachelorette Party looking to spice things up, learn tricks of the trade from instructors who are authentic Las Vegas strippers, and acquire some sexy skills to take back home and show off to your partner.
