Early morning walks along the Seine are wonderful, of course! It also felt quite romantic to walk along the streets in the evening and pick a little restaurant based on what caught your eye in the moment, rather than strictly following reservations.

What is the best tip for planning a bachelorette in Paris?

Start making reservations as soon as possible! There were restaurants we tried to make reservations at 2-3 months in advance and they were already booked. Some rooftop bars will make the decision to close in the morning if it looks like it's going to rain that night. Even if it doesn't end up raining that night, the bar stays closed. Make sure everyone brings sneakers or comfortable shoes. We had planned some coordinating outfits that involved heels but by day two, we were all in sneakers, flats or sandals. You'll likely be walking on cobblestone a lot so comfortable shoes are a must!
