[embed-1]Bachelorette parties take over Charleston every weekend. Hell, we’ve seen them creep into town as early as Thursday mornings, clutching non-fat vanilla lattes, seeking shopping on King and cocktails on any given rooftop. We don’t hate these sash-and-crown bedecked brides-to-be — in fact, we appreciate their boost to our economy.

But we really don’t think Charleston needs to attract anymore “bride tribes.” Once Republic’s outdoor patio fills with not one, not two, but seven different bridal entourages, we’ve reached our limit. Unfortunately, Vogue has outed our fair city as a “low-key bachelorette party destination” that “your friends will appreciate.” Ugh.

While Charleston may not be the Big Apple or even Nash-Vegas, we beg to differ with Vogue‘s assessment of our town as “low-key.” We’ve seen way too many penis pops flung around Upper King for that to be the case. Regardless, Charleston is a hotspot for bachelorettes, and Vogue recommends that you head here for a “Southern Soiree.”

Vogue’s tips? Eat at Husk, The Ordinary, and FIG and book your stay at “boutique stunner” 86 Cannon — $339 per night (with rooms outfitted by local designer B.Berry) — or Belmond Charleston Place, where you can enjoy a “sparkling rooftop pool and ladylike afternoon tea.” We’d have our tea no other way, Vogue.

Check out the full list, which also includes a “not-so-Napa wine weekend” and “glamping on the California Coast” online.
