I’m really struggling. I’m planning a bachelorette party, and she wants it to be low-key, and NOT overnight. We have 5 people going, which is just enough to be a pain in the butt. Too many people for a spa day, not enough people for wine and canvas.
I need suggestions. Help!

I had 7 girls at my bachelorette party, and it was low-key and lovely. They threw me a lingerie shower at a chocolate atelier just after closing (7pm), so we had it to ourselves. It was a lot of fun 🙂

As much as I love this suggestion, cost would be an issue with doing something like renting a whole space :/

My bachelorette party was very similar – five of us and no one slept over. We actually went out for afternoon tea and then went to an art museum. It was really nice! It was more like a giftless bridal shower than a bachelorette party but I am old and unfun so it was perfect for me. 😛

Why not a spa day? Five of us at my bachelorette, and we did a spa day.

Cost. We’d have to pay extra for extra staff on a Saturday. 3 places said the same thing.

Since wine is grown in almost every US state and most countries these days, there is probably a wine growing area reasonably close to you. Rent a limo (check Groupon!!) for the day and have it take you to a couple of wineries for tastings. You can pack a fancy picnic lunch too and eat it at one of the wineries.
Baseball game, football game, basketball game– pro (WNBA too) or minor league/amateur league.
Chocolate making class after a fancy dinner.
Comedy show and drinks afterwards.
Or as others have asked, why not a spa day? Some hotels have “day use” rooms where you book the room/suite from 10am-6 pm and they will send the nail tech from their spa to do mani/pedi on everyone.

How about a cooking class? Or a winery tour? You could also do a brunch or tea. Is this group all active? Maybe you could go golfing, or paintballing… extra fun paintball would be to buy thrift store bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses while paintballing

What is the bride like? Whats she into? I would try to plan something around something you know she loves and enjoys. Also, look and see what is going on in town that night. Is there a band she likes playing? Does she like going to the theater and seeing live shows?
For example, my bach party will be comprised of all my favorite things. We’re starting off the day by spending a few hours at the State Fair eating fried foods and riding rides, then we’re having dinner at a nice italian place following by visiting haunted houses until we’re too tired or all the haunted houses close.

We did a cooking class, nails, dinner and a comedy show. It was great! There are definitely lots of options you can do. We had a slightly larger group but you don’t need, say, a private cooking class. You can still have fun.

Also my sister had a small group and we just went wine tasting all day. But that was in Napa so not an option for everyone.

We just went out for dinner and drinks, then went swimming at our hotel afterwards. There was also a scavenger hunt, so that was awesome too.
