Yeh, I’d talk to the girl who is planning it, and see if you can’t all do something like get pedicures together and then go taste some wine or something. It sounds like its all about them, and from my experience working in a bar, bachelorette parties are obnoxious and attract some male attention, probably what they are most keen on with wanting the rager… I don’t think you’re asking too much to want to avoid a night of debauchery that you don’t find enjoyable in the first place.

Disclaimer: Now if you like going out and partying, by all means, paint the town red. I’m just saying the OP shouldn’t have to do that if she doesn’t want to.

I would speak to them about it since you should enjoy your own bachelorette.  Plus, getting a hotel room and going out partying sounds way more expensive than a spa treatment or a lot of other options out there…to me going out drinking is one of the most expensive things you can do!

I’m not the drinking type either. I just opted out of having a bach night all together because I’m not excited by any of the tradition bach ideas. But you can totally speak to the planner and suggest something more in line with your tastes

Find a wine festival..all the girls can go, pay for themselves..and just chip in a few bucks for you. It would be a whole day of girl time, drinking (light drinking or “raging” depending on how much wine they choose to consume), and inexpensive! If and when you find a festival just say oh I really want to go to this vineyard etc etc that would be the PERFECT bachelorette party.

We have actually discussed doing a winery tour for my bachelorette as I am also not a big party-er or drinker. We are getting a chartered bus and then doing a tasting at several different wineries. It’s only going to cost between 20-30 a person depending on how many girls come with us. We are also doing lunch. The whole day will be less than $50.

I would just be clear on what you are not comfortable with and remind her of the type of person you are. You want a bachelorette party that you are happy with and have fond memories, not something that leaves you miserable.
