Don’t want one and I hope no one even thinks of throwing me one. Just not my kind of thing.

Nope, didn’t have one. Didn’t want one and I was just recovering from surgery and stress planning the rest of the wedding. Did have a bloody marry brunch party, that was fun!

yorkshirebride:  I am not having one. Just not my thing. But it sounds like you want one and are afraid it just won’t work out or be fun. You can certainly have an awesome Bachelorette with just a few good friends.

I am not having one.  I don’t really enjoy typical bachelorette activities (drinking, male strippers, etc.) and if anyone offers to throw one (doubtful) I would decline.  🙂

I’m not.. I’d like one, but my friends are split between the east coast and west coast, I’m moving to somewhere inbetween in a couple months (where the wedding will be), and so on and so forth.  So no, no bachelorette for me. 🙂

I could care less if I have one or not. If I have one, I already told my bridemaids I just want something simple and lowkey. I’m thinking about a spa day, with a fancy dinner and a winery. If you don’t want one then you shouldn’t have to have one, it should be your choice and up to you, you are the bride afterall! : )

I don’t want one, would much rather just have a fun private dinner with drinks.

now listen here. You need to do YOU!!

Don’t let downers make you feel awkward or uncomfortable. You only have one chance to have a hen’s night, and it sounds very much like you want to have one, if only you had the support of family! You should absolutely have one, and don’t even worry about how many people can come. Personally I find that small intimate bachelorette parties are the most fun. I love spending time with the bride, rather than a whole gaggle of semi-strangers! 

Find someone in the grooms family who you can depend on and ask if they wouldn’t mind helping you put together a small-group celebration. Dinner and drinks, or a show is fabulous, even with just two or three people. All the bee brides are there with you in spirit!! 

As a “worst case scenario” if only one or two friends/family seem up for it, invite those select few to a day of pampering! Manicures, and a bottle of wine are the perfect end to any day, with any group! Good luck!

cantwaittobeemarried:  may I aslo clarify: if YOU don’t like the idea, then no need to feel bad! They are not for everyone, and this event is for you. If you prefer not to, then go for it! If, however you do want one, but are worried only a few poeple will come, please don’t fret. Small groups can be the best groups 🙂

Didn’t have one, nor did hubby have a bachelor party. No regrets!

I live far away from my buddies who honestly wouldn’t be to travel for such an occsion anyway due to various constraints (infants, teaching obligations, etc.). But I wouldn’t want the attention of a big blowout anyway. My mom, sister, and I plan to have a mini girls night out at a wine bar and drink all the wine, and I’m more than satisfied with that!

I’m not having a bacehlorette party. Or engagement party or a bridal shower. Just not into those kinds of things. (FI is free to have a bachelor party if he wants).

If you want to have one though, go for it. It doesn’t have to be some big over the top thing that takes up a whole weekend. It can just be a fun night out with friends.

yorkshirebride:  I iddnt have one because i dont have any friends.

I was sad because I wished I had someone to plan something like that for me but it is what it is.

If someone wants to throw you one I say do it and remember, it doesnt have to follow any sort of formula, it can be whatever you’re comfortable with.

If I could have one I would rent out this cool nail salon/bar in my city and have a spa day with some cocktails.
