So I am in the midst of planning my BFF bach party and she requested something low-key and fun. My first thought was a weekend road trip to the beach. We have a couple beaches near us within a 2 hour drive so its a totally realistic idea, but I was wondering if you wonderful bees had any other ideas that might be fun. She is totally NOT a spa girl, so thats out of the question. I want her to have a blast, but she also wants it to be a sorta-surprise.
Thanks in advance!!!!

A beach trip sounds fun!
You say a spa day isn’t for her… what are her interests? Two of my friends who couldn’t make it to my more traditional bachelorette party took me to a cooking class before the wedding, which is perfect for me since I love to mess around the kitchen.
I would go off her favorite activtiies and things to do.

@art bee- that sounds right up her ally. She loves art and photography (taking pictures, not being in them lol)
Games sound fun too, but Im not sure how many Bridesmaid or Best Man will be able to come. For sure it will be 3

for mine we’re drinking margaritas and then doing paint your own pottery.
i had requested “no genitalia theme” to bachelorette cause… yeah, not me. drinking + painting really ugly mugs = fun!
at least near me there are totally paint your own places where you can have drinks *at* them.

I would love some crazy clubbing night but I’m the last to get married so all my friends have to go home to hubbies and children…so it’s low key for me (and cheap b/c everyone’s on a budget nowadays) whether I want it or not!
We’re thinking anyone of these or combination:
– hike and lunch
-beach and lunch or dinner
– comedy club and diner or pizza
– sleep over/slumber party by someone’s house if possible
– cheap concert (no big names or big arenas)
– pool party and barbeque or pizza
It’s going to now depend on most convient location for everyone since we’re all over tri-state area.

Do you live near any wineries? You could rent a limo for the day and go on a wine tour. Each girl could get a personalized wine glass. She could definitely still wear a veil (which you should make her wear for at least some of the time in order for it to be a true bachelorette party!).

I vote for a beach trip … or a lake, in my case. Maybe a lingerie shower? Wine tasting?

For my best friend’s bachelorette we went canoeing. I booked a bunch of canoes at a rental place, and after we got back we had lunch at the restaurant there. It was perfect and perfectly her style. When she first told me I thought she was insane but now that I’m getting married myself I totally get it 🙂

I planned a wine dinner for a dear friend’s bachelorette. She didn’t want a big party or a spa trip. So, the other bridesmaid and I devised a menu and then went to a nice wine shop. The folks at the shop helped us choose wines to pair with each course and even helped us revamp our menu to incorporate some particularly tasty treats. We did all the cooking and paired the wines based on the wine shop folks’ suggestions. We also printed menus with food/wine info for everyone and did some cute favors. It was such a fun and relaxing night and everyone seemed to have a great time!

I just had my bachelorette party this past weekend and we had a blast! 🙂 Mine was a combination of low-key and enjoying drinks.
We went out for Hibachi (a Japanese grill where they cook in front of you!) and then went to see “Beauty and the Beast” off Broadway. It was amazzzzzzing! I even wore my tiara and “Bachelorette” sash to the show. Hehe. I would have been more than okay to just do that. But we did go out to the bar afterwards – and still kept it pretty low-key.
Since you say she likes art and photography – what about a show, or a concert, or something? 🙂

I just know what I want for my bachelorette party, and I consider it low key, however others might not.
I want to rent a cabana at my favorite pool in Las Vegas. NOT because I want to party it up Vegas style, but because I actually like their pool and I want food and drinks brought to me all day while I relax by the pool with my best friends. Cabanas are private plus you have your very own personal host/hostess, and if you pick the right hotel/resort/location/etc… it can be very relaxing and low key. What about that?

I am planning a dinner, with a comedy show after.
I am not a big drinker, plus a lot of the girls don’t know each other. This is a way to have fun and laugh, but not need to be drinking constantly & not have awkward silences!
