I don’t care how broke, scared of planes, or “not into craziness” you claim to be. When it’s time for a bachelorette party, it’s time for Las Vegas. Period. Here are a few tips on how to maximize the debauchery:

  • You and your crew of gals need an outfit. There are times in life to blend in with the crowd, and this is not one of them. The best outfits are a little sexy, a little flirty, and a little outrageous. These are not the trendy, skimpy outfits that will get you VIP passes into nightclubs. Bachelorette outfits should be a litle crazy.

  • Make a list. To keep things interesting, compile a scavenger hunt of sorts. The best tasks involved a challenge and require strangers to help you out. This is why Vegas is so great – most people walking the Strip will be more then happy to help you out on your quest. As tasks are completed, check ‘em off and snap a picture. Some examples…
    • Find someone who can sing a song from your college days (R. Kelly’s “Remix to the Ignition” is a good one)
    • Challenge someone to a foot race (if you are a runner. If volleyball is your thing, find someone to bump, set and serve a cocktail napkin with you)
    • Take a picture with a police officer, a showgirl, and an Elvis
    • Find a casino worker who’s name is the same as the groom
    • Learn how to say “bachelorette” in three different languages – find native speakers for this one
    • Interview an old couple regarding their first fight as a married couple
  • Provide alcohol. Stash a cooler of alcohol in your room and another one in someone’s rental car at the other end of the strip, for re-stocking purposes. Travel Las Vegas Blvd with your own booze and shot glasses. Offer up a swig to anyone who was useful in completing your scavenger hunt. It’s surprising how many people will take a shot from strangers…
  • Take notes on the nightly happenings right on that scavenger list. It will make for good reading over greasy food and coffee the morning after.
