  • poll: Do/did you want a bachelorette party?

    Yes, a traditional one that includes bar hopping and the works!

    Yes, but something more low key like a girls night in

    Nope, don't want one at all

    Other (will explain below)

    a Destination Wedding makes this so much harder. But the small wedding aspect makes it easier. There are only three of us, we’re all cousins and none of us have been in the same state and the same time in 2 years. Because there are so few of us, I feel like I can really afford to go all out. We’re having a day-of-beauty in my penthouse suite the afternoon before the rehearsal dinner with brunch, massages, facials, mani/pedis, a bartender, signature drinks and girl talk. I will be buying us coordinating robes and slippers with our favorite NFL teams (we grew up in different cities) and giving out their bridesmaids gifts. I think this will be the extent of the bachelorette situation.   Late that same night we are having a co-ed outing that is named “bachelor/ette party” at the beach, but I think it’s just gonna be a bunch of folks hanging out. This is fine with me.

    I’m not doing the whole bar hopping thing – I’m only 25, but I haven’t drank anything since I turned 21. It’s just not me, I outgrew it rather early.

    I think for my bachlorette we’re gonna do the penis theme.. maybe hit up the mall, go to a nice restaraunt & have a girls night in at a lovely hotel. Like a big sleepover!

    I’m all over that.

    I’m 26, and still enjoy clubbing occasionally. At the moment, my hen-do options are:

    Rent a canal boat for 2-3 nights, and go down the canal on it, stopping at different pubs for lunch/dinner

    Go abroad (probably Spain) for 2-3 nights of drinking, sunbathing, and eating

    Go to something like Go Ape (ziplines etc), then go home and freshen up, before heading out for a meal in our local town, followed by a cocktail bar and then a club.

    Totally undecided at the moment.

    @Tarheelgurl:  I don’t think so. My body cannot even handle more than 2-3 drinks and I am very much in the same place. Really, it’s about something you want to do with the girls you are close to. Spa day and maybe drinks at a lounge instead of a “wild night out” might be more appealing. There is nothing wrong with doing something different.

    I already know what we’re doing!

    We will begin with a little hike and the we are going to go to a winery and have a wine tasting, buy a bottle and they left you bring your own food in~so we’ll bring snacks.


    That’s my idea of fun with my girls!!


    We are thinking of having a co-ed night where we will go to a local brewery, have dinner, drinks and play pool!
