My best friend is getting married in April and I’m starting to plan her bach party. She doesn’t like to drink and doesnt want a party revolving around drinking.
Travel is out since one of the bridesmaids will have a two month old. So i was thinking of doing something local in nola.
Does anybody have any experience with a spa type bach party? I was thinking day at the spa (facials mani/pedi, maybe sauna)and then a nice dinner out and then games back at the hotel room.
I’m terrible at planning so any advice or rhoughts would be appreciated!

I don’t have a lot of advice, I just wanted to say that what you have planned sounds like a fantastic idea! My bachelorette was a spa morning followed by lunch, and it was low-key but perfect 🙂

I think that sounds lovely but only if the bride (and the majority of guests) enjoy and can afford (for guests) a spa day. The costs can add up quickly for a full day event.

A spa day is nice, but it can get pricey. Do you have any sort of class-like things that she would enjoy? Maybe a perfume making class, cooking class, etc.?

Check for spas at the hotel so that during the day you can also lounge by the pool so you don’t feel like you have to fill the entire day with just Spa activities.

We did my best friend’s bachelorette weekend in NOLA. Went on a horse carriage ride downtown, ate at Murial’s for lunch, and went on the steamboat. Would recommend everything but the steamboat…it was terribly boring and not worth the $50 ticket haha. Also, it’s still fun to go out even if you don’t drink! We went out on Bourbon Street / French Quarter just for the fun of people watching and getting the bachelorette ‘experience’.

This is my kind of party:-) not sure if you have similar, but in LA we often went to Burke Williams, where you can use the sauna and hot tubs and showers all day when you book a service. So you could book whatever the ladies can afford and stay around relaxing as long as you want.
You might even have a spa that does bridal packages.

the price is my concern. I would cover the bride but i dont think any of us can just splurge 500 on one day.
this is exacly what i was thinking and what i wanted! Ill look into some of the spas in my city!
i dont know how that didnt occur to me because that would be the easiest option!
Thanks for your input! I have some great ideas swirling in my head now!
