I spent a weekend at a lakeside cabin with just my BM’s – for my Bach party we ended up having a huge dinner with 26(!!!) of my favorite ladies and walked to a lakeside bar for a night out on the warf. 

It was low key and perfect

@FutureMrsBess:  Ice skating sounds like it would be a fun activity for the guys & girls to do.  It’s fun, even if you can’t stay up and just keep falling.  The downside is the potential to get hurt, so maybe allow yourself some time before the wedding and don’t do it the week before!


Other things you could do:  a theater performance, a dinner theater, a scavenger hunt (since it’ll be cold, maybe a scavenger hunt in the mall or something?), an indoor waterpark, indoor amusement park (if there are such things, sorry I don’t know your area)!

We went to a local food festival and a bunch of friends met us there. It was a joint party, actually, since neither my FI nor I really drink that much, and we wanted his little brother and sister to be able to hang out with us. After that, we hit up a local bar/restaurant. We had a great time!

@FutureMrsBess:  Why don’t you just have one of those huge girlie-girl slumber parties you had when you were younger. You could have an ice cream sundae bar, watch chick flicks and play fun board games?

We’re having dinner, then going bowling then back to the hotel for games, chick flicks, drinks and general hanging out. I also went to a bachelorette party that included putt-putt golf!

@FutureMrsBess:  I hear ya on the $$ aspect – which is why I chose to just do dinner and a night out.. No silly renting limos or going to expensive clubs, etc. 

Have you thought about having your party sooner? You could probably get away with it next month, or even the month after in early October which would allow for at least a pub crawl of sorts.. Super cheap and just good ol’ fun 🙂

I’m planning on taking my girls out to a really nice dinner.  I don’t drink and I hate partying and staying out late, so I definitely don’t want the traditional bachelorette party.  This way we’ll still get to dress up, and it’ll be another way for me to thank them for their help and support.

I was orginally going to do a pole dancing party but so many of the people that I wanted to come were going to be on vacation.  FI was going to go to a baseball game and golf but he really isn’t into baseball games.  So I suggested we combine ours and have it at an indoor go-carting and laser tag place. 

Everyone is really excited and it should be lots of fun as we can do guys against girls.  The place we are having it at is letting us book out the place for the night since we are doing it on a weeknight and it’s only $30 per person.  Plus we can bring our own food.

We also are having kids so it has turned into a family affair.  We went to this place for my sons 10th b-day and I think the adults had more fun than the kids.

I’m going to a boutique Brewery to listen to a band under the stars. There will be good beer, good food and bad dance moves.

@FutureMrsBess:  Are there any shows going on that you could go to? Like a play or comedy show or something? A friend of mine had a sleepover pizza party lol. There are also mobile spas that can come and do manis and pedis if that’s your thing 🙂

I have no idea what my DOH (Dude of Honor) has planned for my bachelorette party.  I just hope it’s something all ages, because my very not-legal sister (17) is in my wedding party and I’d like her to be able to take part in the festivities.

Hopefully it’ll be something tame.  Like bowling.  Or paintball.  Or Cards Against Humanity, a couple of bottles of wine and some good friends.

We had a weekend at a resort town. First night my MOH and I spent the night at a Casino.  The 2nd night the rest of the girls showed up. We ate and we did go out but nothing to wild.  The next day did some shopping.

@FutureMrsBess:  I recommend you don’t do ice skating. If you’re not experienced, there’s a good chance you’ll get blisters on your feet (from ill-fitting ice skates) – at least I always do – and you don’t want that just before your wedding.

We just had a night in at the MOH’s house. Takeaway food, videos, and silly games. Kind of like a sleepover except we didn’t stay the night. To me, something like that (or simply going out for dinner) is a good way for everyone to unwind and get to know each other a bit.
