Forgive me if there’s a similar topic already- I’m new here and still figuring things out 🙂
Here’s my dilemma. I have 8 bridesmaids, three of whom are pregnant, and I am expecting at least one more to be pregnant by the time my wedding rolls around. As much as I love to get my drink on, I’m not the type to go to clubs or anything. So basically I’m looking for something fun and girly we can all do that doesn’t involve alcohol so the pregnant ladies won’t feel left out, is not expensive as I will likely be picking up the tab, and something we can do during the day as we only have a small window of time to work with (most of my girls live out of state). I’ve got nothing! Any ideas???

@TracyCate: Mani/pedi each and a great lunch out!
Go to a craft studio like Spark Craft- make jewellry
Go to a fortune teller
Go out for high tea- dress up , wear hats and gloves

I had a similar situation so I had a girls night in which was really fun!
I prepared a bunch of appetizers, drinks for those who could drink, and we just sat around and played games- pin the lips on the bachelor, toilet paper bride, act it out (i got it at party city) and it actually turned out to be a really fun night. Afterwards, a few of us went to the local bar with the bride to be.

I like to PPs idea about mani/pedi and lunch, mini golfing, and/or girls night in with chick flicks and games. I’d have a ton of fun at all of those! Also, like @PatientBride: did, you and the girls who could drink could go out to a bar if the mood strikes.
Also, where do you live? Other bees who are local to you might have good ideas.

Thanks for the ideas everyone! I live in the North Texas area, so we’re surrounded with plenty of options for food haha.

If there is a nice resort with a spa in your area, you could book mani/pedis for you and your girls. Most places like that give you full access to the spa facilities for the entire day when you have a service done. Some even have a private area to order lunch and hang out. We’re doing pedis/spa day for a Bach party next month. It adds a little something extra to going to a normal nail salon.
