MsGinkgo :  So You have any amusement parks near you? They’re pretty much fun for all ages, the girls can get booze if they want, but it doesn’t become all about drinking. (Fwiw, in on my way to the airport right now to go to my party in Orlando at Harry Potter World! So the park idea is at the top of my mind.)

MsGinkgo :  I would suggest renting an air bnb or something that would accomodate the number of people attending. Bring booze, snacks, board games, and music! You can go to dinner then the escape room that she’s interested in and come back and have some fun with games and everyone will be able to drink whatever amount of alcohol they are comfortable with.

MsGinkgo :  well if the bride is a huge entitled Brat that is shooting down ideas….I’d probably throw my hands up and say “I’m done planning. You decide what you want then and let me know.” If it’s anyone else being a brat, I’d say “this is what we’re doing. Either come or don’t, but this is the party.”

MsGinkgo :  maybe you can suggest that after these activities anyone who wants to go clubbing later in the night is welcome to if there’s a club nearby, but you will not attend that portion.

How about a winery or brewery tour with a nice dinner afterwards? Wineries/breweries are more tame than going to the bars, but you’re still providing alcohol for those firends who “want to get shitfaced”.

Do cactus club and a laser tag/escape room. Plan it and tell the other bridesmaid she has no choice. It isn’t her bachelorette.

MsGinkgo :  gotcha. So if the bride wants X, plan X and tell the other bridesmaid “too bad. This is what Bride wants, and this is what we’re doing. End of story.”  I’ve been the MOH and dealt with difficult bridesmaids. There often comes a point where you have to stop caring about being friendly, and tell them it’s not about them, it’s about the bride and this is what’s happening whether they like it or not. At the end of the day you want your sister to be happy.

MsGinkgo :  For my bachelorette, I didn’t want to go out and get crazy. I’ve grown out of getting wasted and being stupid, but I still enjoy having a few drinks. We went for pedicures and drank wine while getting them, then went to my sisters house to get ready, went to a brewery and had a couple drinks, then went to a nice dinner, followed by seeing a local band at a bar in the town I just moved from. It wasn’t anything extravagant, but all of my close friends were there so we had a blast!
