Hosting a beach bachelorette for your bestie? Here’s how to make it an event to remember.
Where to Go
Luckily there are beachy destinations to suit every kind of bride. Beach plus parties and clubbing? Miami. Enjoying a New England summer? The Cape, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, or Newport. Rub elbows with Beyonce? The Hamptons. Looking to surf and relax? Try San Diego, Malibu or the Laguna Beach areas. Want a traditional seaside experience? Ocean City, Wilmington, or Myrtle Beach could be right up your alley.
What to Do
Obviously lounging on the beach with a pile of magazines (and perhaps getting the bride to sport a customized bridal bikini) is a top priority, but that doesn’t need to be your only order of business. Get everyone moving with beach-related activities, like stand-up paddleboarding, surfing or kayaking lessons. If you want a more relaxed day out, try a sailing excursion. Whether you charter a pontoon or a mini-yacht, spending the day out on the water can be a great way to bond. Other options? Beachfront yoga or even testing your balance with surfing yoga can be a great way to start off a day on the water.
Later in the day, consider arranging a catered meal (of local seafood, natch) or head out to a beachfront restaurant with spectacular views, and then off to an evening bar crawl, which can range from classy to kitschy depending on what seaside town you pick.
