Without writing a book of the whys, for my bachelorette party I’ve decided to not get drunk. I enjoy getting drunk and always have a lot of fun but for moral reasons I’ve decided not to.
Which works because my MOH is older and more reserved and would feel more comfortable not drinking, two bridesmaids are under the age of 21 (and one wouldn’t drink even if she was of age) and the other is a drinker. So the majority probably wouldn’t notice if there wasn’t heavy alcohol anyways, other than them having to babysit.
I disagree with strippers, I don’t want them any where near the bachelorette party. I am a wine drinker though and may bring a few bottles of wine. We have a suite rented about 2 miles from the downtown area and about the same distance from the venue the next day.
So my idea is to have the bachelorette party at the hotel in the suite so all the girls can crash in there and we can all get up early in the morning for to get ready for the wedding.
Now I want to make sure we all have fun and it’s not just a bunch of uncomfortable girls sitting around not talking because none of them know the rest of the group. They are all 4 from different corners. They are all at least 18 or older.
Should we rent movies? Break out the Wii? Get board games? Anything not totally boring but not too out there? One of the brides maids is a very strict christian, and honestly she’s part of the reason I am who I am now and I really respect her beliefs so I don’t want to step on those boundaries.
So we’ve got one serious christian (who is in a committed but non sexual relationship until they are married) BM, a 18 year old still in high school BM, a partying BM and a catholic older MOH who is very reserved.
What can we do to have fun? Any ideas?

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
Pajama party. Bring in a masseuse and spa tech. Watch chick flicks. Make earrings or other jewelry.

See if the hotel spa will send a nail tech to your suite and have mani/pedis. If the hotel won’t do it, there are mobile spa tech services in many cities that will bring a spa package to your suite or home.

Is there anything you guys can do in town like horseback riding or something?

@kris325: We did this for my best friends wedding. I threw her bach. party the night before the wedding, we went to the Metling Pot and had JUST desserts and some girls ordered cocktails. Then, me and her other bridesmaid (her MOH wasnt able to make it) went to a room I had rented for her, we just sat around eating snacks, talking and watching TV for about 4hrs. The funny part is her other bridesmaid and myself NEVER got along before (this was years ago) but we were both very involved in making her night enjoyable and so there was no awkwardness or anything. So dont be worried about having a bunch of girls sitting around not talking and it being uncomfortable. It will be fun. 🙂 Plus, hanging out over some chocolate fondue first never hurt anyone! 😛

Oooooh I LOVE the melting pot!!! The closest one is an hour away though 🙁 But my fiance and I are about to get us a fondue pot so we can make some Bananas Foster (yummmm!!!), maybe I’ll bring that over to the hotel.
I like the spa ideas. The hotel has nothing of the sort but I’ll check into the local places and see what they may have to offer… A massage for us the night before would be great, I’d sleep like a baby the night before my wedding 🙂
