Choose your style - bachelorette party weekend in Atlanta
If you're planning a full weekend of fun for your best friend's bachelorette party, think about what really defines her. Often, when people think bachelorette parties, they think tiaras, lots of shots, and maybe a guy taking his shirt off. However, the truth is when it comes to that last evening out with your girlfriends as a single woman, one size does not fit all. Does she love to get wild and crazy? Is she an artist at heart? Does she love a good punch line? No matter what makes your bestie all grins and giggles, don't worry – this list covers all bases.
The two most important things to consider for your hotel pick are mouth-watering, jaw-dropping room service breakfasts, and of course an over-the-top spa experience.
The spa at this hotel is top of the line. Be a Southern belle and try the Peaches 'n Cream massage. It is pure bliss.
