How to Plan a Palm Springs Bachelorette

October 21, 2019

So it’s no surprise that Palm Springs is currently trending and is pretty much the perfect destination for a vacation, wedding, babymoon or even a bachelorette with all of your girls. Over the years I’ve photographed so many cute bachelorette sessions and today I’m giving the full recap on how to plan a Palm Springs bachelorette.

From places to go, things to see, where to eat, and what to do I’m sharing some of the best places in the desert that you and the girls must see.

#1 Photoshoots Are a MUST

“I’m so thankful for the amazing experience we had with Brianna! The photoshoot was my favorite part of the whole trip and you made us all so comfortable and we had a blast. The girls LOVE the photos!” -Amanda G.

I promise this isn’t a sales pitch is just a straight fact that taking fun photos with your besties is a no brainer. While your wedding photos are going to be absolutely stunning you also need casual photos in cute non-wedding clothing with your girls to remember all of the fun times from the weekend. If you still don’t believe me I’ll just drop a couple more photos here to prove you wrong.

#2 Book a Trendy Airbnb or Resort

There are so many cute locations if you just do a quick search on Airbnb or VRBO but one in particular that I adore is Soukie Kasbah. Imagine all of the Morocco meats California poolside vibes and it’s the perfect desert retreat for your group to relax and unwind.

For resorts you also can’t go wrong with Korakie Pensione, La Serena Villas, The Ace Hotel or Villa Royale.

#3 Shopping at Boutiques

This is where the fun begins at some of my favorite places to get all of the cute earrings, gifts, or desert memorabilia and take super bomb photos for the gram.

There aren’t a ton of locations but there are a few really really bomb places you have to stop like Thick As Thieves, Soukie Modern at The Shops at 1345, Trina Turk for the ultimate desert fashion or grab a cactus for the road at Moorten’s Botanical Garden.

#4 The Best Foodie Spots

No trip is complete unless you fill your belly with bomb food and Palm Springs has a number of hidden gems. My mouth is literally watering as I think about some of my favorite spots.

Be sure to grab tacos at El Jefe or the best fish tacos at King’s Highway or for all around bomb Mexican food you MUST grab chips + guac + margs at Las Casuelas.

For coffee spots my all time favorite is Ernest Coffee for a solid latte and pastry in the morning. But for a full on breakfast I cannot rave enough about FARM and Wilma and Frieda’s. Both spots are iconic and I would eat there every meal if I could.

So that’s my mini Palm Springs wrap up of the places to hit up with your girls! Have a blast and don’t forget to lounge poolside, xx.
