- Wedding: April 2013
Without writing a book of the whys, for my bachelorette party I’ve decided to not get drunk. I enjoy getting drunk and always have a lot of fun but for moral reasons I’ve decided not to.
Which works because my Maid/Matron of Honor is older and more reserved and would feel more comfortable not drinking, two bridesmaids are under the age of 21 (and one wouldn’t drink even if she was of age) and the other is a drinker. So the majority probably wouldn’t notice if there wasn’t heavy alcohol anyways, other than them having to babysit.
I disagree with strippers, I don’t want them any where near the bachelorette party. I am a wine drinker though and may bring a few bottles of wine. We have a suite rented about 2 miles from the downtown area and about the same distance from the venue the next day.
So my idea is to have the bachelorette party at the hotel in the suite so all the girls can crash in there and we can all get up early in the morning for to get ready for the wedding.
Now I want to make sure we all have fun and it’s not just a bunch of uncomfortable girls sitting around not talking because none of them know the rest of the group. They are all 4 from different corners. They are all at least 18 or older.
Should we rent movies? Break out the Wii? Get board games? Anything not totally boring but not too out there? One of the brides maids is a very strict christian, and honestly she’s part of the reason I am who I am now and I really respect her beliefs so I don’t want to step on those boundaries.
So we’ve got one serious christian (who is in a committed but non sexual relationship until they are married) Bridesmaid or Best Man, a 18 year old still in high school Bridesmaid or Best Man, a partying Bridesmaid or Best Man and a catholic older Maid/Matron of Honor who is very reserved.
What can we do to have fun? Any ideas?
