I like to have fun, but lets face it. I don’t enjoy being the center of atttention (unless I’m confortable and put myself there) or making a fool out of myself … especially in public! For my bachelorette, we are going to a spring training baseball game, then dinner, then out on the town. I fear that my girls are going to be insane with the penis-gear (can I say that?!) … the scavenger hunts … bachelorette challenges … bascially normal bachelorette stuff. I’ve already had comments that I need to ‘go with it’ and ‘be a good sport’ … they know how I am. 🙂
How do I handle this? Has anyone else … feared .. this , so to speak?! I’m so excited and can’t wait to spend the day with them, but does it have to be to the ‘bachelorette’ extreme? Ugh! Help!

I don’t want the typical bachelorette party either. I’ve been to some bachelorette parties that were a happy medium though, like we broke out the penis straws and silly games at the one girls house before we went out and then went out without all the scavenger hunts and all that. No veil, suck for a buck shirts, just girls out on the town having fun! Do you think you could talk them into something like that?

I think that you could try again to explain to them why you’re uncomfortable with it or what parts make you uncomfortable, and maybe you can reach a compromise like @Natalieh86: mentioned where the penis paraphernalia stays at home and the night out is classy.
They may be telling you to ‘play along’ or whatnot, but if you really explain to them that it’s not the night you want and you won’t be enjoying yourself, they will hopefully have your best interests in mind and want you to enjoy the night and maybe tone it down a bit.

I would sit down with one of your girls that seems most like you and understands you the best. Then really let her know, just how much you would feel uncomfortable doing something like that. She’ll hopefully then go back to the group and plan something a little more your taste.

Just tell them you don’t want the sex toys and hardcore stuff around. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, just mention it beforehand.
