What’s more fun than a wedding? A bachelorette party with your posse of gal pals in Europe of course. Go clubbing until all hours of the morning, pamper yourselves from head to toe and hang out in classy cocktail bars like the princesses you are, before being crowned queen.
Whether you flamenco or fling, get your dancing shoes on for a night of bar hopping in Valencia’s Carmen area on a tour that includes a 3-course dinner, champagne and VIP entry to the best bars in town. One of the highlights is La Indiana, where you hit the dancefloor and outshine the podium dancers, kick back in the chillout zone and flirt your booty off at a very swanky bar until it’s time to be dropped off back at the delicious Hotel Zenit.
Rock your world with some Hard Rock Café fun in the action-packed Ku’damm area of Berlin surrounded by lively beer halls, coffee houses and opera. There’s no official closing hours, so you can feast and party long into the night, checking out the rock memorabilia such as a patent leather bra signed by Madonna. Then gather the gals for re-invigoration at the La Prairie Spa inside the Ritz-Carlton Berlin, with its sparkling pool under a crystal ceiling.
Want to watch hubby’s jaw hit the floor on your wedding night? Pick up a few moves from the Moulin Rouge girls in Paris. Start your tour with some champagne glass clinking as you dine at the 58 Tour Eiffel Tower restaurant on its first floor, mesmerised by the glittering lights below. Then it’s time for a Seine river cruise before turning up the party mood with a cabaret show at the world’s most famous music hall. Spend the next day shopping up a storm and then lounging back at the guests-only bar in Hotel Lancaster, renowned for glam era hotel regulars Garbo and Dietrich.
Before beginning you life as a wife, enjoy one last spree on your own plastic with a bargain price shopping tour of Italian designers in Florence. Prowl around Prada for some chic sunnies, then bound around Balenciaga, Valentino, Ferragamo and co in a whirlwind of the finest wares. Give those heels a break in the calm surrounds of Monsignor Della Casa Country Resort, with its wellness centre, sauna and Turkish bath to restore your nerves for the big day.
