Are you looking to organise a perfect getaway for girls? Girls need an opportunity where they can get away from their routine schedule and have a gala time. But, it seems that their schedule is so busy that it is not feasible to plan out a weekend getaway.
But, it’s about time that I handpick 7 key tips for the perfect girl’s getaway. Go on use this tips and have the time of your life.
Leave The Planning To 1-2 People
Well, it is my personal view that not more than two people should be involved in making the planning. It is quite easy to mess up things when more than two people are trying to make a plan. Dividing the tasks will surely help you out in catering to different things such as accommodation.
Have A Budget
Make sure you are upfront about having a budget but at the same time also concerned about other people’s price ranges. Discuss how the spending will be made. The best and practical way is to allow only two people to shop for the groceries. Let them do all the spending and keep the receipts with them. At the end of the trip, pay them back, trust me this is simple and a hassle free way of doing things.
Go For A Signature Drink For The Weekend
I can understand that grocery shopping for a bunch of people can be quite overwhelming. The best way out is to decide unanimously the signature drink, for the weekend, beforehand. Make sure the lead organiser is made to go shopping for the ingredients of that drink. Make everyone to participate in making the drink, I am sure you will love this. For our weekend, we decided High Plains Margarita (little yellowish in colour).
It is a quite a popular drink, so we didn’t have trouble finding its ingredients – 1.5 oz Patrón Silver, .5 oz Patrón Citrónge Orange, 2 Slices charred pineapple, .5 oz Fresh lime juice, .25 oz Yuzu juice, .25 oz Simple syrup, 6 Sage leaves, 2 for garnish, 2 dashes Lime bitters, and + Chipotle salt rim.
Choose A House Instead Of A Hotel To Stay
My idea of a perfect weekend getaway is to rent a house with my best buddies. Searching hotel rooms is easy but when it comes to a house, you need to specify in your search. Indeed, you will find a wide variety of houses on the internet, but even this should be decided unanimously. Make sure you have checked for the nearby grocery and shopping stores (I will discuss on this).
Instead of staying in a hotel, when you are living and sharing a house together, you all will have a great opportunity to bond. See other possibilities you get to explore when you are together including – making dinner, enjoying coffee, and just having fun hanging out together. You can also indulge in playing exciting indoor games, staying up till the late hours of the night.
Plan The Itinerary For Some Days
The vacations that require you to stay at one sole place at a particular time definitely feels over structured. But, if there is no plan at all, then you will easily end up wasting the whole weekend. I suggest, making plans for one of two days and leave other days open. Trust me, this will help you to enjoy some flexibility, but still ensure that you make the most of your trip. Our planned days really went well, we enjoyed relaxing by the pool, watched movies, and unwind together.
Have A Throwback Activity
So, whether you are playing twister or making s’mores, having everyone participate will surely give you a chance to all you girls to strengthen the bond. It certainly helps you to take you out of reality and all the stress of your everyday lives. When you are together, definitely, you have lots of things to discuss and do, you won’t even notice how the time flies.
A true girls weekend getaway is never complete without referring about shopping. Like I have discussed in the third point, ask the concerned person about the nearby shopping malls or boutiques. Go on dress up like queens and enjoy shopping at all the shopping outlets and hip boutiques. Shopping is also one of the effective and tested ways of building a bond, so make the most of it.
