There’s a lot to love about The Afterwhite bride, but one of our favorite things about her is her unwavering authenticity. She doesn’t do or wear things just because they’re branded as ‘cool’ by the masses. Comfortable going against the societal grain and dancing to the beat of her own drum, she’s a breath of fresh air and an unintentional trendsetter.
So, where does an Afterwhite bride go for her bachelorette party? She skips the cliche destinations (looking at you, Vegas & Nashville), bedazzled pajamas, and ‘bride tribe’ lingo in favor of a bachelorette party that feels true to her. Whether she’s an outdoorsy girl, a total foodie, or the life of the party, she aligns her bachelorette party to her vibe and vision.
We’ve rounded up a handful of bachelorette destinations that are a little less cliche – and a lot more fun.
Non-Cliche Bachelorette Destinations by Vibe:
Our pick: Nassau, Bahamas
In a few words: Tropical, laidback, and Instagram-worthy with crystal clear waves and quaint pastel-colored buildings dotting the island. Perfect for diving, snorkeling, and beach-going.
City Life Bachelorette
Our pick: New York City, New York
In a few words: Vibrant, eclectic, and always buzzing. New York is filled to the brim with cool bars, hole-in-the-wall improv shows, and drool-worthy Michelin-Star restaurants.
Our pick: Vancouver, British Columbia
In a few words: Mountainous, artistic, and cultured. A match made in bachelorette heaven for the bride-to-be who loves hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and oohing & aahing at the natural world.

Food + Wine Bachelorette
Our pick: Santa Barbara, California
In a few words: Easeful, warm, and deliciously slow paced. Dotted with gorgeous beaches, charming wineries, red-tile roofs, and Spanish architecture, Santa Barbara is a haven for foodies and wine lovers alike. (Bonus: Will make you feel like you’re in the Nancy Meyers movie It’s Complicated, minus all the scandal.)
What to wear: The Fiorenza Dress with a denim jacket for wine tasting up the coast at Bodega and on its own for dinner, the Kim Bikini Top + Paula Bikini Bottom for beach-going, & the Flawed Logic Earrings for everywhere.
