You know what they say. “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Well that’s not exactly true anymore. Not with social media, people constantly taking pictures on their phones and then there’s snapchat! Not that I have anything to hide, but I can absolutely see how people can get in trouble in Vegas. This was my third time: the first two I was with my dad and coworkers for Tradeshows. And needless to say, going with a group of girls is very different and way more fun. 🙂
I was lucky enough to be with a group of really great girls on a Bachelorette Party in Las Vegas. Which I think makes all the difference. Now listen… we are definitely a pretty rowdy group when we all get together and we were there to have fun. However, out of twelve girls… there were six married women (including myself), two engaged, three in relationships, and one single girl who just started seeing someone. So, to say we were there to go out and look for guys to hang out with, was not exactly the case. We did meet a group of guys also on a bachelor party, who were all mostly in relationships as well. So it worked out pretty great. Especially when they wanted to take limo rides and to share some cocktails 🙂
Our group stayed at the Cosmopolitan, which was the best decision made by the Maid of Honor. The Cosmopolitan is very swanky, posh and glamorous. It even has a Rent the Runway in the hotel, which we all visited. (Post to come on the visit to RTR and the many items I tried on.) The hotel was just gorgeous. The lobby was pretty “sexy sexy” all in black with bright pink and purple accents. There was also a massive chandelier that crossed four floors and had a bar inside of it, called obviously… The Chandelier. Which we frequented. The hotel room was also great with a spectacular shower and bathroom and gorgeous views of the hotel pool, the city, and the “Eiffel Tower.”
Another fun thing that we did was go to the High Roller Ferris Wheel at Caesar’s. It’s the world’s tallest observation Ferris Wheel and it was incredible! The Maid of Honor made reservations for our Ferris Wheel ride because it is a brand new attraction and very popular. The best part about it was there is a bar inside! And it’s all you can drink for 30 minutes… which was hilarious being with this group of ladies and finding that out 5 minutes into the ride. The majority of the pods do not have a bar in them, so it is family friendly as well.
During the day we were either walking around the many beautiful hotels and casinos, or we were at a pool party. We were there Thursday through Sunday, so we had two full days to venture around. There are so many great places to shop and places to see during the day, which took up pretty much the entire first day. They have many designer stores around Vegas that are worth going to. In the Bellagio, the shops are mostly high end. You have Tory Burch, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s, Kate Spade, and Chanel to name a few. On the affordable and way more realistic side… I visited Sephora, Banana Republic, Jcrew, BCBG, and H&M at The Forum Shops at Caesar’s.
At night we went to dinner, then to a bar for some drinks and then finally to a Club close by. For dinner the first night we went to Rose Rabbit Lie at the Cosmopolitan. They had a live band and amazing singer perform during your meal, but we were not to impressed with the food. The second night was at Julian Serranos Tapas at Aria, which had an incredible menu! Highly recommend that place. Finally, for a great breakfast and lunch I would recommend going to The Peppermill. This place is like a nightclub during the day (picture below.) Great service and great food, perfect for getting rid of a hangover if you are suffering from the night before. They also have really great cocktails including a massive fishbowl drink (picture also below.)
For nightclubs, we went to TAO and The Hyde at Bellagio. Both well known clubs in Vegas. Hyde was my favorite. When in Vegas, everyone is there mostly in small groups and people are generally very social and it’s easy to start up conversations with strangers. We also went to the Chippendales show, which was so funny and fun. Not usually my kind of thing, but hey… we were on a bachelorette party! Check out some of the men of Chippendales below… pretty cute right? 🙂
When we were at Hyde, we may or may not have befriended a group that was there for the night to celebrate big. When I say big, I mean that they bought twelve bottles of Dom Pergignon and then one magnum size of the champagne. My good friend Anna and I were dancing and asked the question”Would you like a glass of Dom Perignon?” Here is where I ask… who would say no!? I could have bought probably five Louis Vuittons for the amount of money he spent on Champagne for that night, but the point is, it’s great to make friends and talk to people. And, hey… if you are in the right place at the right time, maybe someone will offer you a glass of really nice champagne!
The best part of the trip had to have been being completely away with this group of girls. We were a very tight group in high school and some of these girls I have known since I was 3! It’s rare now-a-days that we all get together, with girls in NYC and KC. There’s no better place for a group of 12 twenty-somethings to go to celebrate a very special Bride To Be. So overall point… if you want to go on a crazy, fun Bachelorette Party, head to Las Vegas.
