Charleston is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, in both population and tourism. This combination provides ample opportunity for new businesses to sprout up in the Lowcountry. There are already close to half a million small businesses in South Carolina and almost half (43.6%) of South Carolina employees work for small businesses. Moreover, every year more than ten-thousand businesses open while another ten-thousand close in South Carolina.
That’s why we created this list of our favorite new small businesses for bachelorettes in Charleston, in hopes of keeping them around and creating more opportunities for Charlestonians!
Some of these businesses are brand new, while others are new locations for existing companies but all of them offer great products and services for bachelorette parties in Charleston.
Babe Magnet Lashes
Everyone knows you’ve got to dress to the nines when you’re going out in the Lowcountry. That’s why Babe Magnet Lashes is one of the most essential new businesses in Charleston! Their magnetic lashes and liners are easy to apply and extremely natural looking. The owner, Rachel Pall, has lived in Charleston for the last few years and is a true lady about Town! Rachel donates 1% of their proceeds to a different charity every three months, so you get to feel glamorous and charitable at the same time!
Who knew planning a bachelorette party could be so easy! Bachelorettes can be extremely difficult to please and planning a whole weekend for them can cause more stress than it’s worth. Luckily, Bach Babes is opening their third location (the first two are in Nashville, TN and Austin, TX) right here in Charleston this Spring. They’ve already helped plan thousands of bachelorette parties and can make your next hen weekend one to remember! Bach Babes partners with tons of local restaurants, service providers, party buses, classes, retail stores and more to make sure that you see all of the best the town has to offer during your stay.
Priding themselves in creating customizable experiences for their clients, Chicora Tours offers one-of-a-kind experiences while visiting the Holy City. Their services include walking tours, driving tours and private tours, all from a local’s perspective. Why agree to some cookie cutter tour that’s longer/shorter than you really want and goes over things you don’t actually care about. Next time you’re looking to learn more about Charleston, book a customized tour through Chicora!
Double Black Transportation
Ever since we opened our second location last Fall, Double Black has been shaking up how a party bus rental in Charleston works. We are serving the customer the best way we know how by offering several discounts including local, weeknight, round-trip, half-day, full-day and multi-day. Our buses are also custom-designed to have everything a bachelorette could need, including wraparound seating, surround sound speakers, LED mood lighting and two ice bars. We also love to help curate itineraries to our clients’ preferences of locales, including rooftop bars, breweries, wineries, beaches, boats, golf courses and nightclubs. Just let us know what you like and we’ll figure out the rest!
Eat Me Cookie Cakes
Are you looking for an equally delicious but at the same time raunchy dessert for your next bachelorette party (or any occasion for that matter)? Order a custom treat from Eat Me Cookie Cakes! It’s owned by two sisters local to Charleston, though they’ve been serving up spice all across the country. Believe us, the crude, yet tasty desserts are the perfect gift no matter the occasion.
Conclusion: Charleston Bachelorette Parties
Charleston has a lot to offer bachelorettes, including thousands of small businesses! It would be impossible to include all of them, but we hope you enjoyed this list of our new faves.
