Some ideas off the top of my head:

  • Spa day where each girl does a variety of services at a spa for an afternoon (maybe after lunch) with sparkling grape juice and virgin mimosas (er — just OJ :-))
  • Girls night in. I’m doing that with my girls the night before the wedding. Rent movies, order pizza, pop popcorn, and hang out!
  • Take a class together! Maybe a cooking class (Dierbergs does them I know) or an art class.
  • Dinner & a movie out. Go to dinner and then hit a rom com afterward at the cinema!

Just have a party at someone’s house. Have alcohol available and make sure the young ones don’t indulge.

I threw my best friend her bachelorette party at a pottery painting place. She was pregnant at the time so I did provide nonalcoholic drinks and food, but did also provide some booze for those that wanted a glass of wine or something. We had an AWESOME time.

Girls night sleepovers with old school games. You could also do a camping thing where you could rent out a cabin and have a bonfire. Any festivals around you? Renaissance festival? The pottery painting sounds fun too!

You could have a lingerie shower instead. Finger foods, games, and girl time.

I dont know where you live – but my friends and I have done a bunch of “painting” classes. You can BYOB (for those over 21) and theres an instructor who teaches you how to paint a specific painting (we called it adult paint by numbers!). They seem to be popping up all over the place, but again, don’t know where you live 🙂

SweetVanity:  I just went to a pottery painting place with friends the other day. It was so much fun. We brought wine, beer, goldfish crackers, and cookies. I chose a butter dish, which was $20, and the firing fee was half off, at $4. So $24 for my own better dish masterpiece. I loved it. We all had fun.

I’m lucky enough to be able to do a girl’s weekend with my closest friends. (My mom has a timeshare in Palm Springs so we get free lodging woohoo!) Even though we are all over 21, I’ve made it clear to my girls that I’m not interested in partying the entire time. I’m thinking we’ll go out one night, and spend the other night inside.

Honestly, if you’re surrounded by your friends, I think anything you’ll do would be great. I know a lot of women opt to do things like spa treatments, and I think that’s a great idea for a dry bachelorette party. I had a friend who did a pool day at her parent’s house, followed by a lovely dinner and slumber party. I’ve also been to parties where we took classes, and that was fun too!

You can see online/pinterest that there’s TONS of bachelorette party ideas. If you’d just like to do a chill night, playing some games and what not. Overall, I think it comes down to the group of gals. Anything you do can be fun with the right people.

hisluckygirl22:  I’m having an afternoon tea party in the park. Picnic blankets, cakes, lawn games, tea (although I, and some others will be drinking champagne out of our tea cups but that isn’t necessary), girly music, loads of bunting, more cake, and wonderful, big hats.

It could be really affordable as well, if every guest brought along a cake to share.

For my sister, we planned a girls night in/spa night after going to a sushi bar. For mine we went out to a nice dinner. 

I’m not much of a nightlife girl. So I was perfectly fine with just doing a nice dinner. We went to a ritzy bar and ordered a drink and sat and talked after the dinner, but that wouldn’t work for your situation.

For one of my dear friends, we’re going on a bike ride in the morning, then later were going to get dinner and go make some clay pots.

Something fun like a rollerblading lesson? Or horse riding in the countryside somewhere?

For mine, I’m having a traditional Indian Mehndi night with all of my close family and friends, few days before the wedding. It’s where a bunch of the women who are family and friends all get together, they all get mehndi (henna) done, we’re all dressed up in pretty Indian clothes, and it’s basically loads of laughter and fun and food! There will be LOADS of people there (only women obviously, as per tradition ha). I don’t really like the idea of going to a bar and getting wasted in silly clothes, it’s not my cup of tea.

Cads About Matrimony.  I just found about about it, and it looks like loads of fun.  It’s supposed to be like Cards Against Humanity, but it’s about marriage.  I’m picking up a set.

hisluckygirl22:  My bachelorette was this weekend and we did a painting class. It was SO much fun, everyone loved it. We had our own private room with an instructor who walked you through your painting (as most of us arent painters), everyone had their own canvas and paint set and we’d take breaks while the painting was drying to snack and talk, we were allowed to bring food and wine/beer/pop into the room, it was 3 hours and went SO fast, I’d do it again. Most areas have these things, in Pittsburgh its called “Painting with a Twist”. Highly recommend. You can pick the painting you want to do as well! You dont have to be 21 to go to these places.

The painting classes are a great idea, and if you pick the right one sometimes you can get a really good deal (I did one for $17! Included all supplies, instruction, and two glasses of wine, although the youngins wouldn’t be able to have that.) They also offered cookies and a cheese plate. It was really great.
