@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.

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.
