Put together your own tropical bachelorette paradise with vibrant colors and delicious food and drink. With sunglasses on and margarita in hand, sit seaboard or poolside and catch those sweet summer rays. Relax, bride-to-be, you’re in paradise!
The idea for this "final fiesta" bachelorette party was inspired by the bride-to-be's last name: Lopez. “Arseña, the bride, and myself, her sister and maid of honor, are both Mexican. Her fiancé is an amazing, white Midwest guy,” shares Audree Lopez, the planner of the party. “Eventually, ‘The Final Fiesta’ was created—it was her last fling with her hispanic last name; plus a Southwestern fiesta in our home state of Arizona just seemed like the perfect fit!”
To make your own final fiesta bachelorette party, decorate with a punchy palette of colors such as purple, yellow, red and green. If your bachelorette party is a destination weekend, fill up the agenda with a handful of activities, such as a piñata cocktail hour, lingerie shower and mariachi performance. And of course, lots and lots of lounging in the sun.

Float around the city on a yacht sailing just for you and your closest friends. Whether you have access to the sea, a river or a lake, a boat rental will (mentally) transport you to saltwater beaches with pristine white sands, or poolside lounge chairs shaded by palm trees.
If you're setting the scene at home, go all out with bright, bold colors and plenty of beachy décor. Think: tissue paper tassel garlands, sun hats and piñatas.
As the hallmark of all true fiestas, a mariachi is a must. Some bona fide mariachi tunes will spice up any gathering, especially a group as lively as a bachelorette party. Bring the beautiful sounds of Mexico to your party and get everyone dancing! The red dress emoji girl will be you.
Craft a taco bar for your guests using fresh and aromatic ingredients, or make your life a little easier and cater from a gourmet Mexican taqueria for a zestier, artisanal touch.
Everyone loves a good margarita, especially when it incorporates their favorite tropical flavors. Have the gals creatively customize their drinks with this DIY marg bar. Toss in some juicy fresh fruit to top it all off.
Throw in some fuego with a lingerie shower: ask each guest to bring lingerie or sleepwear for the bride-to-be, and she can guess who each gift is from. This fun, cheeky activity is not only a classic bachelorette party favorite, but will perfectly complement the vibrant and playful weekend at hand. And why not incite a bit of competition into your guests? Whoever’s gifts end up in the honeymoon suitcase gets a free drink.
