@MrsM2013:  I have something similar, but not exactly. I went out for lunch with a few friends and co-workers and we painted ceramics. It was fun, but not the “fun, crazy, bacheloertte party” I was imagining. They said that they though it was more my style, which I guess it was (I’m a shy homebody), but I was thinking it was a time to break out of my shell and let loose! We went out for about 5 hours total. My sister on the other hand, we just had HER party. We drove down to Cape May, NJ on the shore, went to bars every night and even hired a stripper for her. I guess I just lived through her and it made me feel better to at least get to experience that, but it made me realize just how “un-bachelorette” my party was. Meh.. I was bummed for a long time (also she went all out for her BFF, so yeah great).  Anyway what I’m saying is that maybe you try and plan a weekend get away with the girls after the wedding and have a ball! Just because you are already married doesn’t mean you can’t do that! Heck, I’d rather not wear those silly sashes and have the light-up tiaras anyway!

@MrsM2013:  So called friends really bailed to take care of their dog? Honey,  those aren’t friends. A dog can be alone for a few hours, the ones having to stay with children could have hired a sitter, the ones that left after one drink were also poor friends. I realize no one attending can ne boring for some people, but come on you really think it’s ok to ditch the bride during the party after realising so many others did the same? That’s selfish. 

You really should have had your girls plan something a different day so there wouldn’t have been the childcare issue. But a good friend would do whatever it takes to try and be there with you, not claiming they had to watch their dog.
