@sera_archie:  are you crafty at all? I think I’m going to do something like a craft party during the middle of the day. All your girls make things like a garter, or jazz up a pair of knickers! The people who do these kinds of things go to whatever venue so that could be perfect! πŸ™‚

You could have a lingerie party or a pamper party. Maybe hire a topless waiter to serve your food and drinks (adding a little but of fun but still not over the top)

When I was assisting my girls in planning a bachelorette party I found a few interesting activities….

  1. an art class
  2. cooking class
  3. pottery making/painting class
  4. tour of the closest big city tourist style (double decker tour bus)
  5. wine tasting tour
  6. scavenger hunt

I’m surprised no one’s mentioned that you aren’t supposed to be planning your own  parties yet.

Anyway, my Maid/Matron of Honor was asking me for ideas, since I’m also not a strippers/get drunk/clubbing/etc. type person. She brought up coming down to where she lives and taking the train into Chicago (museums, shopping, dinner, etc.), or heading to the beach for the day.

@vorpalette:    I noticed that you mentioned on a few posts that brides are not supposed to plan their own bachelorette parties.  I had the same feelings as you (although it appears that many brides that post on here feel that the bridesmaids are not responsible for the shower or the bachelorette party).   However, I am finding that my bridal party (except for the MOH) are really not all that on board with planning anything,

I was wondering if your party is all set?  Did you have any input?  Did you need to motivate your girls?

@TypeABride2013:  I have no idea what’s going on with my parties. I know my FI’s stepmom is planning a bridal shower in July or August, and that my bridesmaids have been discussing a bridal shower and a bachelorette party. Other than my Maid/Matron of Honor asking me for ideas/bouncing ideas off of me for a bachelorette to see if I would enjoy them/they were doable (and asking for guest lists), I am not involved (though they did ask me if I wanted to be, and I said no). Then again, my Fiance is most likely going to end up planning his own bachelor party (though my Maid/Matron of Honor graciously offered to put together something that we could all do together) because his brother/Best Man is a huge piece of shit, and he doesn’t want to ask any of the other guys and put them out. I’m half tempted to send the other guys a message about it.

I am a little disappointed that no one on my side of the family has offered to throw me a bridal shower, since I know they expect one, but maybe it’s too early (though I know other August ladies have already had them or they’re coming up soon)? I have no idea, but I guess I’ll just see what happens. I guess if I end up only having one for FFIL’s side and then one for friends, that’s what I end up with.

@sera_archie:  My bachelorette will actually be up to Cedar Point, which is an amusement park. My Maid/Matron of Honor is 14, and another bridesmaid is 16 so it had to be appropriate.

 

Also, is there a Melting Pot anywhere near you? Because most of them host a “Girl’s Night Out” the last Monday of every month (except May and December). For $39 you get salad, cheese fondue, chocolate fondue, a cocktail, a complimentary spa service, and a gift bag.

 

It varies location to location but I looked up a review for it from a woman who attended one in Indiana… They had a choice between 3 salads, 4 cheese fondues, 4 chocolate fondues, and any number of cocktails. The complimentary spa service was either a facial or a back massage in a private room. The spa who provided the services also apparently allowed them to book for a free facial at their facility while at the Melting Pot. Then the gift bag had a bar of Melting Pot Fondue Chocolate to melt down at home and a gift certificate to the spa.

@sera_archie:  That’s crazy!!!

 

My second bachelorette party I have no idea what is happening (three of my good friends who are my age, early 20’s, won’t let me get away without having a “proper” bachelorette party). I think they are trying to plan bar hopping, or a girl’s only party at their apartment with jello shots and skittles vodka, which are my two drinks of choice.

I just had mine this weekend… we had a BBQ at FSIL’s house with about 10 girls, just sat around drinking and chatting, ended up playing drinking games and then went to the casino.. it was mostly just visiting/goofing off and tons of fun.  A friend did bring her newborn for dinner and had a great time.
