We’ve rounded up some of our top bachelorette party survival tips so you won’t wake up in the morning regretting a thing.

1. No Cameras Allowed

Tell your girls to leave the cameras at home for your night on the town. Sure there’s a temptation to capture every moment but ask yourself -- do you really want those images splattered across Facebook? Instead, take a few photos at the start of the night before you head out so you’ll still have something to look back on.

2. Leave the Mini-Skirt at Home

You never know what your girls might have planned, so it’s probably best to leave your shortest mini-skirt or dress at home. Who knows? What if they’re taking you to that bar with a mechanical bull -- you’d hate to miss out on the fun just because you wore the wrong attire. Plus, you'll want to be comfortable on your big night.

3. Load Up on Water

When you’re out with your best friends having a great time, it’s pretty easy to lose track of how much you’ve had to drink -- until it’s too late. Mix up your drinks with shots of water or have a glass of water between each alcoholic drink. It will save you from having a major headache the next morning.

4. Food: Eat Simple

Even if you’re a foodie, try to eat fairly plain foods the night of your bachelorette party. You don’t want to head home early because of something you ate. And for that matter, eat light and be sure to have snacks throughout the night. That way, you won’t feel groggy after a big meal, and mixing in some snacks while you’re drinking will prevent you from getting sick.

If you're looking to keep it healthy, check out these options.

5. No Phoning Home!

You’re there to spend this night with your girls -- so don't call your fiance every five minutes to remind him how much you love him. He knows. Trust us. If you simply cannot part with your phone, hand it to one of your bridesmaids and let them know they're in charge.
