1 nyc-show

Want to plan a ladies’ night out to remember? The Bach, an online destination for bachelorette party planning, has pulled together a list of the country’s top bachelorette party destinations for 2015. To our shock, NYC ranked #1, while Vegas took third place. Now that the results are in, here are the top five cities and our pick for the “can’t miss” venues in each hot spot:

1. New York City

There is never a shortage of fun activities or amazing restaurants in the Big Apple. With tons of amazing places to enjoy a killer meal with the girls (Locanda Verde and Yerba Buena are two favorites!), NYC is also a great place to catch a lively performance with your bride-to-be. That Bachelorette Show and Sex Tips for a Straight Woman from a Gay Manare both perfect choices for the occasion.

2. Austin

As the “live music capital of the world,” it’s no surprise that Austin is a fun spot to party with your ladies. Kick things off with fabulous Tex-Mex at spots like La Condesa, or go for tasty barbeque at venues like Stubb’s. At night, bring your group to East Sixth Street, where you will find tons of bars, live music, and plenty of bachelor parties for the single gals to mingle with!

3. Las Vegas

Of course, Las Vegas is no stranger to bachelorette parties. But that doesn’t mean you should follow the well-beaten path. Take a break from the casinos and pool parties for a fun day activity and learn a choreographed routine fromDance Follies. For evening activities, there are plenty of upscale clubs and restaurants to choose from. Keep an eye out for spots like Tao that offer great bachelorette party packages.

4. Chicago

There are tons of fun activity options in Chicago! Sports fans can catch a baseball game, while more artsy groups can check out one of the many paint n’ sip classes available. You will also find tons of amazing spas, like the one at theFour Seasons Hotel, if your group wants to splurge on a relaxing day with the bride-to-be.

5. New Orleans

There is always a party vibe in New Orleans, even in between Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest. Start your bachelorette party weekend off with beignets from Café Du Monde. It’s always fun to wander around the city, but for a more structured activity, y’all can create your own custom scents at Bourbon French Parfums. At night, head to Bourbon Street to find a rowdy party scene or to the nearby Marigny neighborhood for a classier live music experience.


While the trend for rustic, pared-back weddings isn’t going anywhere soon, there’s is another entirely contrasting wedding style that’s starting to really take off.

The concept for the flowers by Larry Walshe derived from research into still life oil paintings combined with touches of gothic inspired romance.  

The use of darker shades alongside the purity of white adds a deep richness to the tapestry of flowers which, when placed within such an ornate and light venue, gives a true sense of opulence.

Sweetened further by the inclusion of decadent fruits tumbling across a lavish dresser and the soft glow of candlelight, this design offers a modern interpretation on the romance of yesteryear.

Elizabeth also made a four tier white cake decorated with gold swags, black acanthus leaf designs and topped with her signature sugar flowers.

Scent is an extremely important part of a wedding, this has been picked up by Wick & Tallow – luxury British candle makers. The idea behind their new floral collection is to tie it in in with the chosen floral designs for your wedding and enhance the scent of the flowers within the candles.

A flickering flame definitely adds to the ambience of the event, making it a romantic environment. The votives are also fantastic for wedding favours, ensuring your guests are reminded of the wedding day through scent for many years to come.

For this editorial shoot we chose English Rose & Amber as a floral scent which is a unique and compelling fusion of great depth and warmth. We also decided to work with their bold range, which has the scent of White Fig & Vanilla due to its colourful and adventurous packaging.

The White Fig & Vanilla candle is a finely crafted concoction of delicious fruits and berries. This therapeutic and soothing fragrance is perfect for an autumnal wedding and mimicked the scents coming from our floral décor perfectly.

The hairstyles were created by Kasia Fortuna. ‘For the bride I chose a sleek glossy, minimalistic bun, which is popping up on the red carpet with celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Anniston or Kate Hudson wearing them.

By choosing this style a bride will look fresh, current and truly chick. Sleek buns are suitable for any type of gown.

Long hair is so youthful and fresh, and can be made ever so glamorous with a Hollywood wave. This style has been a constant companion to movie starts ever since the 40s.

More and more bridesmaids have been shying away from structured updos, finally letting their hair down. A Hollywood wave is my personal favourite, as it turns ordinary woman into Hollywood sensations.’

Amanda White talks about the make-up involved in this shoot: ‘For this shoot I wanted to capture an elegance in the make-up but I also wanted it to be bold and quite a statement as I felt the surroundings of the venue are just that.

The black, white and red theme meant that a smokey eye would be quite fitting.

This kind of background was all about sultry glamour, very evening inspired and so I wanted the eyes to be the centre of attention. I created the smokey eye using soft charcoal greys and gradually built up into elements of black, but kept it soft by adding a soft dusky pink and rose gold to accentuate the blueness in the models eyes.

The trick to a smokier eye is to blend everything together so that the effect you are left with is the question where do the colours begin or end, it just encapsulates the eye into a cat-like almond shape which oozes sexiness.

For this to work the rest of the makeup needed to be subtle but flawless. I kept the lip natural using peach tones to again enhance her blue eyes I always think peach nude lips with blue eyes instantly makes the skin look sun-kissed.’

7 Crazy-Fun Co-Ed Bachelor/ Bachelorette Party Ideas


( can offer the bridesmaid dresses from the picture)

Jessica Simpson and her friends aren’t the only ones planning joint bachelor and bachelorette parties these days. Many couples now prefer to celebrate the occasion by getting all of their friends together. Here are seven ways you can make your bash one for the books.

1. Plan a Competitive Scavenger Hunt
There’s nothing wrong with a little healthy competition! Plan a boys vs. girls scavenger hunt or bar crawl. The winning team gets free drinks for the night!

2. Check Out a Music Festival
If the bride and groom love catching concerts together, bring their friends together for a fun music festival. Jazz Fest in New Orleans, SXSW in Austin, and Coachella in Southern California are just a few of our favorites.


3. Go Camping
Camping with the girls is awesome, but when it comes time to killing a massive spider or setting up your tent, it can be nice to have a few handy men around. Plus, there’s no better way to bond with the groom and his buddies than over s’mores by the campfire!

4. Belt Out Some Karaoke Tunes
Some songs just need a few male voices in the mix! Check out your local karaoke bar (or the ones recommended onThe Bach) and get ready to perform. Many bars have private rooms, so your group can really cut loose.

5. Head To An Amusement Park
Relive your childhood by playing fun carnival games and riding roller coasters. Plus, it’s a great place for mingling if there are any single groomsmen and bridesmaids — they might just end up on a romantic Ferris wheel ride together!

6. Cheer On Your Favorite Team
If the bride and groom are sports fanatics, help them support their favorite team. You can easily make a day of it by organizing a tailgate party before the game gets started.


7. Compete Top Chef-Style
Whether you take a cooking class or organize a competition in someone’s home, this is the perfect way to celebrate a foodie couple. Plan “quick-fire” challenges or have the bride and groom do blind taste tests of each team’s culinary creations. After your cook-off, everyone can enjoy an awesome meal together!

Tell your DJ the songs that you do not want to be played. If you hate a specific song or a genre, such as heavy metal or country, you don’t want that played at your wedding reception. Make sure that you inform the man you are marrying too.
