So my sister (my MOH) called today regarding my bachelorette party. They were going to just surprise me, but she wanted my input on it.
So they had planned on a trip out of town to go to my favorite tea house. I like the idea, but I feel bad because my sister has 3 kids, and another bridesmaid has a baby. So it seems like a lot to drive an hour and a half just to spend a few hours at a tea house.
So I wanted to stay in town, but I just don’t know what to suggest. None of us drink (so bars and clubs are out). I like the idea of tea of some sort, but in our hometown the tea houses are pretty slim.
Any idea for events to consider?

what about a tea-tasting party at someones house? it could be a blind taste or just to try a bunch out. snacks to clear the palate. everyone could bring their teapots & 2-3 teas to try. i think it sounds fun!

How far away is the tea house? I really can’t see them being upset about you not wanting to inconvenience them – that’s really thoughtful of you. Is there another restaurant in town that you enjoy? Are you the pedis-and-wine at the spa type?

You could always have something along the lines of a passion party or something like that.

Could you maybe go to a piano bar or come kind of comedy show…those are always fun:-) I like the spa idea as well!

If you wanted to do a tea party, maybe they could bring the tea house to you? Everyone could bring/share their favorite teas and you(or your BMs) could order delicious scones or other treats from a local bakery. I am sure someone in one of your families has a gorgeous tea service you could use. However, if your sister and the other girls have already discussed this, it sounds like they are fine with the idea. Maybe you could ask her to talk it over with the other BMs and see what they prefer. It’s awesome that you are the anti-zilla:)
