Charleston Bachelorette Party Ideas
Hey, South Carolina! Charleston is the prettiest place to visit and relax, be a bachelorette + party your you-know-what off! We’re giving you the easy step-by-step guide to how to plan a Charleston bachelorette party so you have one less big to-do sitting on your list. From where to stay in Charleston for the bachelorette bash to what kind of invitations to send, we’ll tell you everything you need to know. Let’s start with the basics: when and where.
Make a Guest List
Speak with the bride about who she would like to invite to her Charleston bachelorette party. Make a list, gather phone numbers or email addresses of attendees, and create a group list to keep everyone apprised of the details as they are available. Before you let everyone know about the party, do the next thing first: choose a date.
Pick a Bachelorette Party Date
Every bachelorette party needs a date, so choose one a few weeks away from the wedding. If it is an overnight weekend trip, be sure to check with the bride and see what weekend works best for her.
Next, you’ll see which dates are available based on the hotel in Charleston where you’ll be staying. Here are suggestions of the best Charleston bachelorette party hotels as recommendations.
Charleston Bachelorette Party: Where to Stay
Plan where to stay in Charleston with your fellow bachelorettes. Most people plan a Charleston bachelorette party weekend, but you can do one night if you live close enough. It is fun to get a hotel room for one night or the entire weekend, if your timeline and budget allow, and plan a weekend of fun itinerary to-dos.
Where to Stay in Charleston
There are many wonderful places where to stay in Charleston for a bachelorette party. If you’d like to do some price comparisons, one great resource is HotelsCombined, where you can see hotels in Charleston and how they compare to others near it, reviews, and the best prices.
Of top hotels in the area, we would recommend (based on reviews):
– Belmond Charleston Place
– Francis Marion Hotel
A stay at this fabulous place in Charleston — Francis Marion Hotel — gives you a glimpse at the heart of historic downtown Charleston on Marion Square. You’ll feel like you were transported back to the 1920s with its elegance, style, and meticulously restored architecture. Located close to great restaurants, boutiques, historic landmarks, and more. Book your trip!

So, you’ve picked a hotel in Charleston, a date, and you’re gathering up your guest list. If you’re traveling by plane, you’ll need to book your flights. If you’re driving, figure out a rental vehicle to take, or plan on driving in different vehicles and meeting everyone at the hotel.
Once you’ve chosen those things, let’s get to the fun part: it’s time to plan the best Charleston bachelorette party ever with ALL the details!
