    We went to the wineries for the day!  It was just perfect for me and my girls!

    I picked “none, didn’t want one” but it was also kind of the second choice, because I imagine if my friends had SUGGESTED something I would have enjoyed it.  I mean, Fiance and I have been together 8 years.  To go out for one last “single” night would have seemed odd, but to have a special night to spend with my friends would have been nice.  Sadly it wasn’t offered/brought up.

    Maid/Matron of Honor is planning a spa day followed by a nice dinner, then probably a sleepover with lots of chick flicks.

    We are just going for lunch and maybe getting pedicures afterward.  I’m 27 and feel like I’m over the whole party thing….   I would much rather go have good conversation and laughs with my closest girls, then go out get sloshed, look at sweaty men dancing (ewww) and not remember my party the next day.  : )

    I already told my friends that I wanna go bowling. Good old fun like when we were young. Plus, noone has a chance of drinking and driving. That is important to me.

    I don’t think I am having one. 2 of  my Bridesmaid or Best Man live in Out of Town, My Maid/Matron of Honor lives Out of Town, and the other 3 are either too young to plan anything or just non existant in any planning as it is! So probably won’t have one!

    I had 2 (both small groups of ladies) one in Vegas and one in Palm Springs, both had 1 1/2 days of relaxing and one night of going out.  In Vegas we went to a comedy club and I had a “LIST” of things to check off and in Palm Springs we went to a restaurant and then went back and got dressed for dancing.club.  They both were fun and I’m glad we did them.

    Going Low-Key. FH and I discussed this early on, when we were still in the bf/gf stage, and decided to have a laid back get together with friends, have an awesome dinner, have some great drinks, maybe play some pool and head home feeling awesome. Strippers and clubs just don’t do it for us and neither do hangovers.

    I am going to one in two weeks where I know there will be a stripper there.  The bride is 28.

    Back in the day I would be running to the bank to get singles.  Now I am like ew.  Back in the day I would be wasted on Mad Dog or Apple Pucker.  Now I like a nice dry martini.  Back in the day the girls and I had to SCRAPE the bottom of the couch for money to pay for stripper, limo, drinks, etc.  Now we can afford all that and more.  So we will be spending the day at the spa and go out to a very nice dinner.  And maybe some stripper pole classes for giggles. 🙂

    mine was standard clubbing. i am away on internship for a year, so my BMs couldnt do one for me and i always said i didnt want a typical crazy bachelorette, but my coworkers were super nice and wanted to do something. i said i like dinner and dancing, so we did that, but then they bought some accessories and forced me to wear it! (headpiece with veil, sash, flashing button!). i never wanted the accessories and extra attention, but it turned out to be fun!  and everyone kept buying me shots, so i ended up puking in the bathroom – something i probably havent done since my early to mid-20s!
