You’ve found that special someone, they popped the question (you said yes, of course!), you found THE dress, and you’ve locked in your “bride tribe” to stand next to you on the big day. All your planning is paying off and it is finally time to let down your hair for a little bachelorette getaway fun! Look no further than Alpharetta, Georgia. Whether you are looking to refresh at the spa, create memories with the gang at experiential workshops, or just sip on craft cocktails in a trendy spot, Alpharetta has everything needed to plan a fabulous bachelorette weekend no one will soon forget! Let’s get you from “life of the party” to “wife of the party.”
First things first, you’ll need a home base to get ready each day with your gal pals. Make your way to one of our 30 modern and upscale hotels, centrally located and convenient to shopping, dining, and fun things to do.
After checking in, getting refreshed and glammed up, it’s time to hit the town. First stop is a wine tasting at Fermented in Downtown Alpharetta. The friendly staff loves introducing your taste buds to a variety of wines they offer, ranging from crisp pinot grigios to complex cabernets. A short stroll away, the group can make their way over to INDIEHOUSE Modern Fragrance Bar for a “Bridal Workshop Experience” to create their own personal scents to take home. This one-of-a-kind fragrance boutique offers a private space for 90 minutes of instruction, creation of a personalized fragrance for each person in your group, and a champagne toast for you and your bridal squad. As an adorable addition, the bride herself can take home a sample size of each perfume her gals create, so as to feel connected to the memory of this special getaway time and time again!
While perusing all that Downtown Alpharetta has to offer, it’s the perfect time to get your shop on! Downtown Alpharetta is lined with charming, locally owned shops like Magnolia Moon, La Bella Maison, and All Inspired Boutique, whose friendly shop owners are happy to assist you and your gal pals in finding the perfect outfit and accessories for your rehearsal dinner or honeymoon.
Once the group starts feeling snackish, walk over to Restaurant Holmes—one of Alpharetta’s most Insta-worthy restaurants in Alpharetta, with vibrant art-muraled walls to match its unique menu. It’s the ideal spot for a bachelorette party with a menu that caters to seasonal tastes served family-style so your crew can try one of each item! Don’t forget to check out their generous list of cocktails to spice up your life! They even have a neon “Keep The Vibes Alive” sign so you can capture the perfect group photo!
After dinner, keep those bachelorette vibes alive by hitting up some more nightlife spots around Downtown Alpharetta, such as Jekyll Brewing or Up on the Roof. Both featuring outdoor, rooftop seating, these spots are perfect for a stellar group photo (#BrideTribe takes #AwesomeAlpharetta) and sip on a cocktail while the sun dips below the horizon. Add glamour, glitz, and retro appeal to the evening at Roaring Social, where live music, exquisite cocktails, and fun games like miniature bowling are paired with the air of mystery surrounding this 1920s era speakeasy.
Grab your girlfriends and start your day in Alpharetta with breakfast on the patio at Café Intermezzo in Avalon. Try one of their delectable gourmet breakfast items like the croque-madame, avocado toast, or fluffy Belgian waffles. Be sure to check out the extensive coffee menu to find the perfect beverage to keep you fueled for a fun-filled day!
Then, make your way over to Kendra Scott’s Color Bar for another not-soon-to-forget experience in making your own piece of jewelry, start to finish. After crafting together your bling, treat yourself to a morning at The Woodhouse Day Spa, where you and your squad can have your choice of services ranging from a simple manicure to a full body massage. Woodhouse Day Spa also provides services for skincare and even sleep treatments designed to help you rejuvenate and re-energize, perfect before the big day.
Pampering perfection can work up an appetite! Take the crew over to Superica for a Tex-Mex lunch of tamales, nachos, tacos and enchiladas cooked to perfection. Everyone in the group will love diving into some margs, queso, guac and chips!
Continue exploring the beautiful community of Avalon, which features more than 500,000 square feet of retail space with the trendiest of shops like CHANEL Fragrance and Beauté Boutique , Free People, Anthropologie and so much more.

Polish off your evening with a toast or two at CRU Food & Wine Bar where you can sample wine flights of everything from red wine to prosecco rose!
Sundays are brunch days! Alpharetta has no shortage of places to partake in brunch to munch. Village Tavern offers a mouth-watering brunch menu ranging from eggs benedict to French toast to luncheon specialties—there’s something for all pallets!
