East Texas Bachelorette Party Ideas
So your bestie has met the groom of her dreams, and you’ve said YES to standing beside her during her BIG day. There’s only one thing left to do (well, there’s actually a million things to do, BUT the most important thing): Throw an epic bachelorette party!
There have never been more options for planning your Longview or Tyler bachelorette party, as these East Texas cities are booming with restaurants, bars, activities, and hidden gems! Here are some tips and ideas for giving Tyler brides the BEST. WEEKEND. EVER.
First things first: Where will we stay?!
Dubbed the “Rose Capital of the World”, Tyler is full of charming stays perfect for your Tyler, Texas bachelorette party. From cottages in the Azalea District to lakefront retreats, you and your squad will have no trouble finding the perfect place to celebrate! Check out this “Pleasant Oasis” perfect for groups, and complete with a pool (hello tan lines!)
Time to plan the activities!
The squad is all together, and it’s time to create some lifelong memories! Kick your Tyler weekend off right with DivaDance East Texas, where you and your squad can learn up to an hour of group choreography to one of your favorite tunes while working up a sweat to truly get your Beyoncé bachelorette party groove on. Let your hair down and try burlesque-style routines, fierce hip-hop moves, and more. Booty poppin’, totally optional. With flexible pricing and package options, DivaDance is the perfect addition to your East Texas bachelorette party. (Just go ahead and order your “Best Bridesmaid Ever” crown now!)
BOOK A DIVADANCE PARTY
Now that you’re ready to audition to be Beyonce’s backup dancers, head for some relaxation at La Vie Med Spa. Put on that white robe, slap some cucumbers on your eyes, and treat the bride to a massage or a facial! La Vie focuses on physical and emotional healing through non-invasive therapy, and who couldn’t use some of that while planning a wedding, am-i-right?!
Is your guest of honor into arts and crafts? Arrange a private party at Pinot’s Palette. At this Tyler, TX studio, you can paint masterpieces (or laugh together at the lack thereof!), while sipping wine or other drink of your choice (BYOB! They will provide glasses, corkscrews, and ice for chilling!)
What will we eat?!
With one of the highest number of restaurants per capita in Texas, Tyler has no shortage of delish eateries for your East Texas bachelorette! For a more Dallas or big-city-vibe, check out The Grove Kitchen + Gardens. With a wide array of fresh farm-to-table menu options and a drink menu that is out of this world, the Grove is the perfect place to celebrate any East Texas bride! Enjoy live music outdoors in the beautiful gardens (photo-ops galore!) and then head inside to the large bar, for some fancy post-dinner cocktails. (Pro-tip: they’ve also got the best brunch in Tyler, Texas!)
Does your Tyler bride prefer a little more of a Latin flare?! Head to the trendy Javi’s for some modern Mexican cuisine, and an endless margarita selection. Their water-front patio seating will give your Tyler, Tx party the perfect ambiance!
Dinner is finished, and it’s time to take on the town (Alexa, play “Ladies Night”). No epic bachelorette party is complete without some bomb a$$ transportation. L&T VIP Limo Service has everything from stretch Hummers, to party busses (you know you wanna get on that pole, QUEEN!). Need options for a smaller group? Classic Coach and Carriage has served the Tyler area for over 25 years and will be a fabulous addition to your East Texas party, with everything from limos, to stretch SUV’s, to busses. So “Julio, grab the stretch!” and let’s pop that bubbly!
East Texas Nightlife
Let’s get this party started! Ready to dance the night away to live music, with some of Dallas’s hottest cover bands?!
