My cousin is getting married in september and I really would like to throw her a good bachelorette party. But she is pregnant with triplets (at the time for the party she will be about week 20).
I dont really know how the american bachelorettes are celebrated sense we are Swedish. But what I need is any ideas for nice, fun, calm, non physically hard activitys for a group of girls (I think we will be about 8) for a day.

Spa day? My usual go to answer is a wine tour / tasting, but obviously that would not be appropriate with a pregnant bride.
Do you really need to throw a Bachelorette? How bout a super special bridal tea?

For my bachelorette we went out to dinner then came back to my hotel suite and played games (we played Apples to Apples, but any fun group game) and drank (get some fun, non-alcoholic drinks for her) and chatted. It was a great night.

What about a spa day? I bet she would love some pampering.

I instantly thought about a spa day. I think it would be perfect for her.

Thank you all!
Spa day has been our first thought too. and im sure its going to be something like that. Spa day and a nice dinner with her closest friends and sister. But i would really like to do some other kind of activity to. Im just worried that it will be too “boring” and simlpe sense shes my closest friend and gave me a great bachelorette I dont want it to look like I didnt put any effort in to planing hers…

what are her hobbies? For example, maybe you could do a spa day and in the late afternoon/evening take a cooking class or painting class?

you could also do some type of “tasting” or food tour- maybe do cheese tasting (but make sure she can eat all the cheeses in advance) or a chocolate tour or something? there are some games you could throw in there to still make it fun too.

kittwn: I was sick for my bach party (more like on the mend, but still not feeling awesome and up for cocktails or partying)– so we went and got our nails done, and then out to eat at a place that happened to be in Mall of America– and then some of us went shopping for a bit afterwards.
It was super low-key, but still fun.

With such a high risk pregnancy, she may be on bedrest or partial bedrest, so definitely plan things where she gets to sit comfortably!

kittwn: Howdy stranger! 🙂
I can’t imagine how you feel at 20 weeks with triplets, my one and only is killing me as it is! For me the perfect, low key, day would start with a hotel breakfast/brunch. There are few things that make me so genuinely happy! As for a spa day… well, she can’t be in hot water can she? I know my SILs wife was not allowed to take advantage of the full spa package we gave them as their wedding gift until baby was born. Perhaps you can do manicures and pedicures instead? After that I would personally be kind of tired, so I would love to end up in someone’s home (preferable CLOSE to my own) for something crafty (like printing bridal t-shirts and little baby onsies?) and dinner. If you want to I can keep an eye open for craft projects and pass along the links through your blog.

JenGirl: LOVE apples to apples. What a great game!
I also vote spa day, or dinner + board games! I would love to have a game night with my girls. Nice way to relax as well.
