In recent years, the trend of destination bachelorette parties has surged as brides-to-be seek more memorable and unique ways to celebrate their big day. These once modest gatherings have transformed into elaborate getaways, a shift that reflects a broader trend to celebrate significant life events with experiences as opposed to tangible gifts. 

The rise of social media has also played a pivotal role in highlighting these celebrations, inspiring brides and their squads to raise the bar for their own parties. Picturesque backdrops and curated experiences not only serve as enviable photo ops, but also as a canvas for personal expression and storytelling.

Now – let’s dive into the details. Planning such events needs to take into account things like budget, logistics, and tastes for all those involved. That’s why it’s important to choose a location that has something for everyone. Of course, we may be a bit biased, but Asheville, NC is our top pick! And, we’re not the only ones. Top wedding planning websites such as The Knot and Wedding Wire, agree. There are just so many fun things to do in Asheville.

Asheville Bachelorette Party Itinerary

Here, we’ve curated a few days of bachelorette fun. Pick and choose, mix and match, but most importantly – have fun because there are so many things to do in Asheville. 

Friday Night 

So, your group has just arrived from all parts – near and far. They’re looking for some fun things to do to kick the weekend off right, but also may be a bit weary from the travel. How about scheduling some mobile massage therapists to come to your place? Get the knots out so you’ll be in ideal shape for a weekend of partying and adventure. Once rejuvenated, flex those wine tasting muscles. Pleb Urban Winery in the River Arts District is a fun place to begin your journey. And there are also several spots in that area to enjoy a quick bite before bed – from the Golden Hour inside the nearby boutique hotel – the Radical – to an artisan pizza at All Souls


After a good night’s sleep at your Asheville rental, enjoy a piping hot cup of coffee or tea. This mountain city is home to several amazing coffee shops. Have a beignet at Bebette’s in the Grove Arcade or hit the Liberty House Coffee and Café in North Asheville where you’ll find abundant outdoor seating for a crowd. Next, head out for a day of exploration.

Get Artsy!

Asheville Urban Art Tours offers 1.5-hour tours that showcase some of the city’s top art murals, while taking photos of your group along the way. These camera-ready locales are a social media maven’s dream. Insta-worthy? Oh yeah. Vibe Portraits is also a top choice. They blend elements of fantasy and fashion to create unique images and lasting memories. After the photo shoot, take a candle making class where you’ll create a scent just for you or channel your inner designer and make cool jewelry at Ignite Jewelry Studios. After all this activity, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite. Head to a local park or other outdoor space for a luxurious picnic like you’ve never had before. DreamScape’s package, “Bachelorette Babes,” includes everything from linens and flatware to bubbly, charcuterie, games and more.
