Affordable Hotel Suites
Being a bridesmaid is an honour as much as it’s hard work. Aside from hustlin’ for angpao money during the gatecrash and helping out on the big day, part of being a good bridesmaid includes throwing a memorable bachelorette party.
Whether you choose to hire male strippers and crash in a hotel room after a wild night of partying, or bond with the other bridesmaids over gossip and manicures in a luxury hotel suite, you’re going to have to spend some serious moolah.
To help you celebrate your girlfriend’s journey into marriage without blowing your budget, we’ve picked some affordable hotel suites you can book for a taste of the sweet life without paying an arm and leg.
Note: Most hotel rooms usually have a cap for how many guests can sleep over but you can always celebrate with your girls till late.
With floor-to-ceiling French shutter windows for ample sunlight to filter in, the Puteri Room gives off a charming, romantic vibe. Order room service and loll in the hand-carved king size bed with your girlfriends for a lazy day in.

Throwing A Bachelorette Party
While it’s alright to splurge on your girlfriend’s once-in-a-lifetime bachelorette party, you don’t want to wake up the next morning with a nasty hangover and a S$10,000 bill.
Also, since the cost of a hen’s night is usually split between the bridesmaids, it’s wiser to stick to a more modest budget to cater to everyone’s wallet size.
Aside from using this list of affordable hotel suites to source for a suitable hen’s night venue, one other way to keep the party costs reasonable is to use the right credit card.
For instance, paying for the hotel suite through Agoda or Expedia with the UOB YOLO card gives you 13% off your booking (capped at S$60 per month). While using the OCBC FRANK Card for smaller purchases such as a bottle of champagne or a tiara for the bride-to-be gives you a 6% cashback (capped at S$60 per month).
So spend smart when you throw your soon-to-be-married girlfriend an epic last hurrah!
