HeatherD16:  Even though I have FOMO (fear of missing out), logistically, and even realistically, going down after work may not be a great idea.  On one hand, you are spending gas money, etc, for a few hours of fun, which (yes) is worth it for great friends.  

On the other hand, when you arrive at 7-8pm, I would make a guess that you will be arriving into a drunken sh*t storm.  Bachelorette party +  beach + weekend destination = drinking from sun up to sun down pretty much (at least that is how my friends roll…), and so will you really have the best time ever being ‘so far behind?’

I love your idea of a card, money and a nice note.  As a friend I would completely understand why you could not be there, but perhaps I am in the minority?!

No chance of getting out of work?  As the bride, I’d be okay if you couldn’t make it as long as you made a serious effort to try to get off that weekend (assuming they gave ample notice of when the party was).  As the friend, I’d personally do anything to even be there for those few hours.  Not saying you are wrong not to.. just what I would do.

I agree with OUgal0004. That’s a lot of driving and gas money for a few hours of fun. I like your gift idea! Maybe you could even go a step further and call up the bar they’ll be at and surprise them with drinks, and maybe ask them to put her favorite song on the jukebox, something like that?

If you can’t get out of work earlier then you should explain the situation to the bride, I’m sure she will be fine with it. Also landing mid way into a hen party is not a good idea, I agree with OUgal004!
