Now, this is the ultimate stress-free break from wedding planning.
Needless to say, every Bachelorette weekend is about hosting a fabulous event (one might say, better than the actual event) that brings some of the bride's closest and exclusive group of friends to celebrate togetherness. And while we can vouch for villas for bachelorette parties, Kay Deane curates this selection of rentals that promises one-of-a-kind celebrations that spells fabulous all the way.
