Gwyneth Paltrow will soon walk down the aisle for her second marriage to producer Brad Falchuk, but before she can say “I do” she has to take care of one key thing: her bachelorette party.
"I'm so excited about everything," Paltrow recently told People. "I've never had a wedding before, so even though I'm 45, I sort of feel like a 21-year-old. It's kind of fun to talk about with my girlfriends. They send me pictures of dresses – they're as excited about it as I am."
Although Paltrow married Coldplay's Chris Martin in 2003, the pair eloped and did not have a reception with family and friends.
And another thing her girlfriends are clearly excited about now is partying it up with Paltrow as an unwed woman one more time. According to Page Six, her good friend Cameron Diaz planned her entire bachelorette, which is currently taking place in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
As Harper’s Bazaar reported, A-list guests include Stella McCartney, Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson.
“Gwyneth arrived in Cabo Wednesday with a group of girlfriends, including Stella McCartney, for her bachelorette party,” a source told People. “She looked ecstatic. They have many fun activities planned, including pool time, spa, and fun dinners.”
Though it’s unknown exactly what the women are doing during their time in Cabo, we have a few suggestions.
Where to Eat:
If you find yourself in Cabo like Paltrow, make sure to hit up one of the area's many fantastic seafood restaurants. And you don’t need to get too fancy to enjoy yourself: Belly up to either Mariscos El Torito or Mariscos Las Tres Islas, two fantastic taco joints that will satisfy your hunger. For fine dining, try booking a table at El Farallon, located on a cliffside overlooking the Sea of Cortez at the Resort at Pedregal.
Where to Stay:
There are plenty of amazing hotels in Cabo San Lucas, but for a group like Paltrow, Diaz, and McCartney, the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa — an adults-only, all-inclusive beachfront resort where the motto is “luxury without limitations” — should do the trick. There, the women can get every service they desire and feel completely isolated thanks to the resort’s private 2.5-mile stretch of beach.
What to Do:
Take the time to go see the famous rock formation, Arch of Cabo San Lucas, also known as Lands End, which marks the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula.
To see it, visitors can either hail a boat taxi from the Cabo San Lucas Marina, or book a day trip on a private sailboat. Though really, no matter what you (and Paltrow's crew) do in Cabo, you’re all bound to have a good time.
