I need your advice here. One of my very best friends got married in the UK a few months ago. However, she is coming to Mexico to have her wedding party and she named me “honorary maid of honor” and put me in charge of contacting her girlfriends (some of them I know, some of them I dont) and organising her “bachelorette party”. She is already married but wants a night with her girls.
Well I contacted them (all by phone and then made a whattsapp group) and gave them my ideas: pole dance lesson, mani/pedi session, bar and then club or bar then boys strip club. It was really frustrating because none of them were even the least participative and they all voted to only go to a bar. I agreed, but I want to do something that will make it more “bridal” and Im not sure what to do. I was thinking on having some tank tops personalized (I did that for the girls in my bachelorette), but I am not quite sure. I dont really know this girls but I really love the bride.
Do you have any ideas?

@eclipse: I would focus on a salon/spa afternoon leading into the bar. I would feel a little weird going clubbing or to a strip club to celebrate someone who is already married.

@MexiPino: Thank you! Yes! I actually was focusing more on the afternoon thing. I thought the pole dance session was super fun, but also the mani / pedi. However, none of them wanted to do it. Should I just take my friend (the bride) on the spa session?

Adjust your expectations. Many will find it in poor taste to throw a bachelorette party after the bride is no longer a bachelorette. The personalized tanks (or any matchy matchy outfit) is excessive given the circumstance. I’d do a spa day and a bar or two. People will probably be more into it if it doesn’t feel over-the-top. After all, how many women would put up with their husbands going for a traditional bachelor party in his honor, months after he actually got married?

@eclipse: What kind of girls are they? Are they not girly? I’m guessing spa/manicure is too girly for them and the club/stripping/pole dancing thing is too wild. Maybe you could ask them for a suggestion? You could take a cooking lesson together or an art class…. the bride knows her girls. Ask her what they like to do.

@eclipse: I think it’d be really nice of you to still take her to get a mani/pedi, even if it’s just you two. It really sucks that others don’t want to participate but you can still make it a special afternoon.

Thank you all! I booked a half day spa for both of us and afterwards we will meet with the other girls for dinner and drinks.
