Dixie Dude Ranch

Dixie Dude Ranch

Las Vegas, New York, and Miami are the usual go-to places for bachelorettes—but have you ever considered a dude ranch?  I hadn’t, until my sister-in-law told me she was off to the Dixie Dude Ranch in Bandera, Texas, for a girls’ weekend.  I turned up my nose and thought sarcastically, “right–sounds like a blast”.  Turns out I was totally wrong.  My SIL returned with stories of female bonding, drinking, and cute cowboys.  Plus, at about $130 a night (including meals, horseback riding, and other activities), it’s a bargain.  Now if only I could convince my own city slicker friends…  –Christina, Wedding Spy

Hit the road Jack n Jill.  Should you and your fiancé want to throw a joint bachelor ‘n’ ette party, why not travel in luxury with a double decker limo bus by Designer Limousines.  I boarded this bad boy earlier this week to see it for myself, and it’s like a cruise ship for the road!  2 floors of roomy space can easily accommodate up to 80 people.  With amenities like 15 flat screen tv’s , Wi-Fi, banquette seating, a bar, a virtual jukebox filled with 100,000 + songs, and room for you and your crew to dance, this bus brings the club to you minus the long lines, busy bar, or snooty attitudes.  Bring in a caterer, hire a DJ, head to Atlantic City or bar hop through Manhattan.  Not in the NYC area?  Try Limobuses.com on the west coast (hello, Hollywood!).  Carpooling never looked so good.  —Machell, Wedding Stylistas

booty-parlor-51Last night a friend of mine was fretting over how to plan the perfect bachelorette party.  All the girls in the wedding party agreed they wanted an intimate affair that could still be a bit naughty.  Aha!, I thought.  A few months ago I found out about a company called Booty Parlor.  A licensed bootician (you laugh, but seriously) heads to your house or hotel armed with sexy lotions, potions, massage oils, and—yep—assorted “toys”—think Avon lady meets Dr. Ruth.  I love that this is a fun and girly way to bond with your friends over cocktails and products like Flirty Little Secret, a peachy body lotion infused with pheromones, and Kissaholic aphrodisiac lipgloss.  This is one beauty brand that will leave you feeling confident and irresistible…don’t you just love science?  —Machell, Wedding Stylistas
