Miami, Los Angeles, Vegas, Nashville...all great cities, but bring your bridesmaids somewhere new! Whether the goal is rowdiness or relaxation, staying local or turning the getaway into a full-blown vacation, here are six ideas to stun your bridesmaids while giving you a break from wedding planning. If your bridesmaids are adamant about planning the trip for you, make sure to drop hints to your maid of honor!
1. Austin, Texas:
Lounge poolside, grab a bite on Rainey Street, listen to live jazz or indie music, get pulled into a line dance at a dive bar...Austin has a little bit of something for every bride-to-be!
2. Yosemite National Park:
While camping may not be your thing, pampering and a rustic hotel room with a view of this gorgeous national park might be!
Dreaming of a Parisian escape, yet not wanting to go through the hassle of days of travel? A range of ethnicities, cultures, architecture and history is what makes Montreal so compelling. Stroll along the cobblestone streets of Montreal's oldest district, dating back to 1605, as you soak in the nightlife.
Stay for a day or make a weekend getaway out of this world-renowned spa, practically in your backyard! Use it as a time to disconnect from the outside and connect with yourself and your bridesmaids.
2. Lake Geneva:
Mansion tours, wineries, boating and golfing. There is so much to see and do in this popular Wisconsin destination!
3. Door County:
Hike, shop, pamper and relax in the Cape Cod feel of this small town. Summer draws in significantly more crowds, so plan your trip accordingly.
