I’m my friend’s maid of honor and I’m worried about her bachelorette party. She wants to go to some wineries during the day, go out to dinner, and then clubbing. I think it’s a great plan, but here is the issue: my friend gets tired easy- especially when drinking. She has been known to leave a function to fall asleep somewhere (in the car, on the couch at someone else’s apartment, etc.) Just last week we went to two wineries during the day and she fell asleep in the car on the way home. I’ve tried gently bringing up the fact that after a few wineries and dinner some people might be too tired to then do a full night of clubbing (mostly talking about her, lol) but she insists that we will all have so much fun we’ll be out all night. I’m worried that I’m going to plan a big day/night out and she is going to be ready to check in for the night after dinner. What would I tell the rest of her guests that came out to party? eek! What do you think?

Just be up front with her about your concerns and ask her what she would want you all to do in that case. She might tell you to go out without her, or she may relent and decide to have a girls night in.
I attended a bachelorette in New Orleans 4 years ago and the bride just was not into the clubbing. One night we had a sleepover back at the hotel per her request, but the next night she told us to go out and enjoy ourselves without her. We got to have our party time and still do what the bride wanted.

I’d probably bring along those little bottles of 5 Hour Energy and have everyone drink it like a shot before or after dinner ;-).

I have the same problem: I zonk right out. Just watch her drinking….make sure she has some water in between…other than that, a few red bulls should help 🙂

I’m with the PPs on the caffeine train.

I have the same problem, and after going to vineyards, I’d have no interest in going clubbing. I’d tell her up front that you’re concerned that she always falls asleep after the vineyards and it wouldn’t be much fun if the bride were sleeping while everyone else went partying!

If you finished wineries by 3 or 4, she could nap before dinner… also I would just make sure that wherever you do dinner doesn’t have super heavy food.

I agree with laurelina, make sure the winery tours finish by late afternoon so she has time to go back to the hotel and nap before dinner out. Keep the redbull handy too!
