So my sister and Maid/Matron of Honor is 19. FH and I decided a wine tour in Napa (where we live) on a party bus would be good, so at least my sister will still be able to participate on the bus. She could also join on the tours at the wineries, just no drinking.
I just found out today that my aunt and mom want to take me to Vegas for my bachelorette party. I would LOVE to go, but i don’t want my sister to feel left out. She could probably get a fake ID, but I know she would worry about it not working the whole time.
Another thing, is that as sweet at my FH is, I think he’ll want to do the normal ‘strip club and get wasted’ thing with his buddies (which is fine – i totally trust him and don’t really care!).
What should I do? Tell my mom and aunt ‘thanks, but no thanks’ and stick with the wine tour, or should I just ask my sister to figure it out??

Talk to your sister about it. She may not have an issue with being left out – and perhaps she can plan something fun for you and friends that wouldn’t be joining you in Vegas.
I wouldn’t want her to get a fake ID, but I’d do the Vegas trip with my mom and aunt, personally! Sounds like fun!

oh and the other girls in the wedding party will join in Vegas – so it’s not just my aunt, mom and i.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my little cousin. She’s 18, so I know how you feel. For me personally, she is too big of a part of my life to let her be leftout. By the time the wedding and bachelorette party comes around she’ll be 19. I seriously dreamed for years about getting married at a beautiful hotel that I fell in love with in Hawaii, but we switched to a resort in Mexico so that she could join in with all the partying and activities.
If you’re willing to travel to Las Vegas, would you consider Canada? She’d be legal age there lol. You can do Okanagan wine tours, hit up Vancouver, or make a trip up to Wistler.
If that’s too much of a long shot for you than I think the Napa wine tour would be best. You picked her to be your Maid/Matron of Honor for a reason, so you should probably include her. Good luck deciding!

My little sister is only 20 so she went out to dinner with all of us girls before we left for the club we were going to, so she was included in part of it. Maybe you and your other bm’s could do a bach dinner or maybe a lingere shower that included your sis, and then go to vegas? My sister thanked my Moh so much for including her in as much as possible, so I’m glad we got to include in what we could so her feeling didn’t get hurt.

I’d be careful with fake id’s. If she is using one i would only use it for drinks. def stay away from gambling because they check those things hard…i’ve seen them put them in machines to check validity. She can go and have just as much fun as you guys i would def bring her along!
i went 2 years ago with some girlfriends for a friends 23rd birthday. SO MUCH FUN! after 3 days though i was ready to go home. Vegas is so worth the trip!

MAybe she could bring a friend her age? that way she wont be alone…im sure her and her friend could pop some bottles in the hotel room and go roam around while you guys are out doing 21 and up things. there is tons of shopping and sightseeing. she wont ever be bored.

I like the idea of her bringing a friend! That way if the ID doesn’t work,they have something to do!

Do Napa – excluding your Maid/Matron of Honor just to go to Vegas isn’t very kind and Napa would be a ton of fun!
