@Happy Donut:  My wedding is very small, and my bachelorette party is basically my BMs and one other very close friend (invited to the wedding, not in the wedding party). No shower. 

I actually like having the smaller party, we have an awesome night planned that we couldn’t have done with more people!

I would try reaching out to the other girls (without the bride’s knowledge) to plan something. If they don’t want to contribute then you should definitely do something the two of you! I’m sure she would totally appreciate a night out on the town with you – a small bachelorette outing will probably be less drama anyway.

Honestly, I would be happy with either a 1 on 1 day or with a few friends. For my bachelorette party we’re doing a small wine tasting day on a Sunday afternoon, so not too crazy but a little fun

@Happy Donut:  My BFF didn’t have an official bridal party either. I asked her to put me in contact with her closest girlfriends. We ended up planning a shower for her and helped with a lot of decor stuff for the wedding. 

You can just ask for the names of her other “honorary” bridesmaids and friend request them on Facebook. It would be nice to plan a day– even if it’s just manis and lunch with these girls.

I think it would be a really nice gesture to surprise your friend with lunch/manis (or drinks and a movie or whatever) with the honorary bridal party!

A bach party or shower can be hosted by anyone. You don’t have to be a BM to host. If you want do it. I’m sure your friend will be really grateful.

@Happy Donut:  You should definitely do something! I’m having a tiny (26 guest) wedding, and I’m not having a bridal party. One of my close girl friends organized a bachelorette party for me, and I’m so grateful. It doesn’t have to be expensive! We’re just going out to sushi and then out to the bars. It will just be my 4 closest girlfriends, who are invited to my wedding.
