If you’re idea of the ideal bachelorette party is a getaway with your girlfriends, then you’ve come to the right place. From a beachfront Airbnb to a secluded resort to a weekend in wine country, some brides-to-be are more about a relaxing and civilized vacation than the typical party scene many people associate with bachelorette parties. Even if a Las Vegas, New Orleans, or Nashville celebration is up your alley, one way or another, you’ll need to pack a suitcase full of cute vacation dresses for a range of activities.

With your bridesmaids and perhaps a few extra friends by your side, you’ll obviously be documenting your bachelorette getaway for your personal photo albums, but more importantly, social media (#picsoritdidnthappen). So you need many an option for various “shoots”, as one does. If you’re headed somewhere by the beach, easy-chic styles like tunics, kaftans or breezy maxi dresses are perfection, especially if one or two can double as both a beach coverup and a dress (packing hacks!). For evenings out, be sure to include something a little more festive whether it’s a ruffled number, something in silk or has intricate embroidery or flourishes. The tropical trend plays well in this environment, too. Consider taking a palm leaf or hibiscus print for a spin.

If you’re in wine country, a bigger city or a cute town like Charleston, South Carolina, smarter summer dresses with a bit of structure are best. Think linen silhouettes with a fitted bodice, midis with a one-shoulder or a puffy-sleeve mini in crisp cotton.

Wherever your bachelorette getaway takes you, ahead, we’ve rounded up 41 feminine dresses (many of which are under $100!) that will make for a super-stylish retreat. In bridal white, bright colors, and punchy prints, these summer styles can be worn again and again post-bachelorette—perhaps even on your honeymoon! Get packing.
