Wondering if you could give me some feedback … I am planning my best friends bachelorette for this March and need some input. I’m thinking a low key dinner, then either Jacques or the Male Encounter, then drinks somewhere fun but low key. My bride is fun but low key… not too crazy/no clubs … does this plan sound reasonable? Anyone have experiences with Jacques and/or Male Encounter and can steer me towards one or the other??
Suggestions for low key dinner beforehand?
Also, forgive my ignorance … but how am I supposed to organize payment for everything? It’s just me, there’s no other bridesmaids… how will dinner work? Sorry if that’s a dumb question …

- Wedding: September 2014 - SPRING VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB
We did Jaques the night before the wedding. It was fun. But it’s a small place and no cards are accepted. You’ll need to book your table in advance. But i was a riot. I litterally had the best time.

bas0587: for mine we did a drag bachelorette party show in faneuil hall. It was a blast and we just did dinner and drinks. Oh and went to the ice bar there also. It was great!
in the past planing them I just give everyone the info of where to pay or have everyone send the money in advance. Depending on the group you have to hound people a bit and people usually bail but, part of the Deal. I never put my card down for anything until I have the money from people ! It’s just Her and you going? Or you’re planning it for other friends also ? if I was the only person going with the bride then I would pay for the night
Good luck 🙂

had the best time at Jaques for my sister’s bachelorette – 4 years later my aunts and mother who came with us still talk about the look on my aunt’s face during the show! it was dirty enough to be a fun night but nothing that an adult can’t handle.
I assume you mean that there is no other bridal party (not that its only the 2 of you going out) – I would just estimate costs and tell the other girls what they need to bring. I think that jaques was like $10 or 15 cash so that was easy enough and then everyone was responsible for their own drinks (and maybe one for the bride)

I went to Jacques as part of a bachelorette and it was a blast! We all met at her MOH’s place in quincy and had lots of appetizers/basically dinner. We took a party bus from there to Jacques, and then we went to The Liquor Store (club) to dance and then took the bus back to MOH’s and had a sleepover. I know you said the bride is very low-key (I am too) but honestly the Liquor Store is a BLAST! It’s like 95% bachelorette parties so there are very few creepy guys and you’re just dancing with your girls. I was part of another bachelorette party in DC that was very low key (scavenger hunt in the city, casual dinner, then back to bride’s place for games/movies) and she told me after that she was really disappointed we didn’t do anything more fun. She wasn’t blaming me (I didn’t make the plans), she was just venting and I definitely understand that even when you’re a low-key person, it’s really the best night to just let go and live it up.
