I’m the Maid of Honor in my friends wedding therefore planning the bachelorette party. It’s going to be on a Saturday night but she wants something a little more laid back rather than going out to bars and drinking. I’m thinking a nice dinner at a restauraunt but I’m not sure what to do after. I want it to be something fun but casua and not too expensivel, and not everyone in the Bridal Party is over 21. I’m a loss for what to do, any suggestions would be helpful!

Bowling? A chick flick at the cinemas? A movie night? A comedy show?

What about a Paint Nite? They’re so fun and not every venue requires you to be 21!

My friend just went back to her house and had a panty party. I was the only one over 21 (besides her mom who was there for every step of the way) and thought it was pretty boring so I didn’t go. When I was Maid/Matron of Honor, I was planning on a weekend beach trip but things happened between myself and the bride so I ended up not planning it. I also had planned to go to a nice dinner, spa day, and then stay in a nice hotel in downtown, but that didn’t work out either. I really like the idea of a paint nite though!

hayleydrumm: I didnt want the traditional going out party and I’m not huge on pampering myself. I saw the idea online for an adult slumber party and was ecstatic. Just all of us staying in joking and watching movies and getting quality time together before the chaos.there are so many options but you guys could go to amusement parks, shows, do something outdoorsy. just depends on what the bride likes. none of my BMs live near me and 3 don’t really know anyone. My main goal is the bonding time and making them all comfortable.

Then honestly, the adult slumber party sounds like a great idea. If people have a problem with it, they can do something different for THEIR bachelorette party and you can do whatever you want for yours. I really never got why this needed to be a night of getting wasted anyway (though I get the basic idea behind it)

+1 for a slumber party. You can choose a nice, moderately-priced chain hotel (think like Holiday Inn, Best Western type of thing) and hang out in a room there, which alleviates the stress of doing breakfast the next morning (whooo for continental breakfasts!) and clean-up. You can pack some DVD’s, some wine and just hang out =)
I’d love to do that for my own bachelorette, unless of course someone takes me to Medieval Times LOL

Just was maid of honor in a wedding for a very laid back bride who doesn’t like bars. We went to dinner and then to paint ceramics at a place that was BYOB, that way it was pregnant and underage friendly. It was a blast!

Bowling or Laser Tag sound like a blast to me. Games are also fun. Go back to the person’s house, or get a hotel room and bust out Apples to Apples, Cards against Humanity, etc. Those always get the party moving and people loosen up.

My bridesmaids did a tea at a famous NYC tea house followed by shopping and casual drinks at a cute little bar – it was perfect, relaxing and fun

What about a winery? That’s what we’re doing for mine and I’m super excited!
