My Miami Bachelorette Party

If you've seen my Instagram lately then you may know that I had my bachelorette trip in Miami last week and it was a blast! We seriously had the best time and my girls made me feel so special :) When picking the location for my trip, I knew I wanted to be able to go to the pool/beach, and go somewhere that had good night life. Well let me tell ya, Miami was the perfect spot! While it is a little on the expensive side, I'm sharing s tips on how we saved some money! Miami definitely has the tropical vibes without having to leave the country, and its ranked as one of the best bachelorette destinations because there are endless things to do. 

First, I highly recommend renting an Airbnb - preferably one with a pool! We had 8 girls total, so that helped lower the cost for the house by splitting it. Once we arrived in Miami, me and a couple girls went to the grocery store while the others decorated the house. Going to the grocery store is a MUST! We saved so much money by making our own breakfast & lunches and getting everything like coffee, snacks, alcohol & PIZZA ROLLS :) I hadn't had pizza rolls since like middle school and we ended up eating 3 whole packs of them throughout the weekend LOLOL! Also, our house was a little outside of South Beach, which helped keep the cost down. It only ended up being a 15-20 minute Uber drive to South Beach, so we didn't end up having to spend a lot on transportation. 












And seriously, how cute were all the decorations?! My two MOH did an amazing job and I was so obsessed with how it turned out! It was exactly how I have always pictured my bachelorette trip! It was just so me! They even made "oh shit kits" for each of the girls with sunglasses, hats, lip balm, mini champagne bottles, temporary tattoos, face wipes, and packets of Pedialyte & Advil!

We had matching tanks for everyone from the Etsy store ShopatBash. If you need anything wedding wise from hats to robes for getting ready, I highly suggest using them! Everything came in perfectly and was super cute! 

We also ordered one piece bathing suits from a different website for everyone, but they ended up being a total FAIL! They didn't fit at all (super skimpy & see through) and I was so bummed those didn't work out, but its okay! 

Now on to what we did each day! 

THURSDAY! 

Thursday was our travel day. Most of us arrived at the airport around the same time so we were able to all meet up there and go to the Airbnb together. We rented one car which came in handy going back & forth to the grocery store! Like I mentioned previously, we stocked up on food & decorated during the early afternoon and then after that we all changed into our suits, popped a bottle of champange and played prosecco pong by the pool! 

Thursday night was our chill night with pizza and games! This was so much fun because I was able to just catch up with most of the girls I hadn't seen in awhile! 

FRIDAY!
I have to say this was my favorite day! Another Miami tip for ya - reach out to promoters! If you go to the beach, sometimes they will come up to you, but since we didn't have plans to go to the beach one of my girls reached out to some promoters on Instagram. I knew I wanted to go to one of the "famous" pool parties while we were there, and while planning we looked up prices for tables or cabanas and they were thousands of dollars BUT the promoters got us in for FREE with FREE alcohol! Needless to say we had a great time! The vibe of these pool parties really puts you in the party mood haha! The one we went to was Hyde Beach Pool Party at the SLS Hotel. We stayed for a couple hours then went back to the Airbnb to get glammed up for dinner & the hunk show! 

We made dinner reservations beforehand at Katsuya, which happened to also be at the SLS Hotel. The sushi here was amazing! Be prepared when going to any restaurant because its really is super expensive. Drinks were $18-25. Then we snapped some pictures and headed to the HUNK SHOW which was called HunkOMania! This was hands down my favorite part because I haven't laughed so much in my life! I won't go to much into detail here because what happens in Miami stays in Miami haha JUST KIDDING but if I had to explain it, its like Magic Mike! If you're with a group of girls go to this for sure! 

After the hunk show, the promoters were trying to get us into LIV (go there if you are able, I've never been but heard good things) but it was sold out because Cardi B was performing so we couldn't get in, but we were able to get into Rockwell and got free alcohol there as well! 














SATURDAY! 

Since we had a crazy day on Friday, we decided to have a pool day at our Airbnb and take it a little easier. We cooked breakfast & of course had some mimosas! My MOH brought floats so we blew them up and literally just played music and laid by the pool until late afternoon. Then we stayed in and cooked tacos and played more games that night! Bachelorette Heads Up will definitely keep your group laughing! Most of us had to be up by 5am the next morning for our flights, so we keep it pretty chill, but it was so nice to just relax and spend time with my girls since I don't get to see some of them very often. 

My white dress from Saturday is from Dottie Couture Boutique for $38! Such a good price and super cute! My bathing suit is from Aerie and is linked here

Then Sunday, we said our goodbyes :( and headed to the airport! 


My bridesmaids are so amazing and they made the trip so special! I couldn't have asked for a better weekend! If you are planning a bachelorette trip - this is definitely a fun place to go & I hope I've shared some good ways to help save you and your girls some money so y'all don't end up spending a million dollars!
