    What about a spa day? Maybe they’d like to be pamperd, w/ dinner following? If they really feel the need to drink, they can have drinks during dinner.

    I don’t think your idea is lame at all! I am a way bigger fan of that kind of girls night than the out drinking kind! In fact, I think at least part of my bachelorette party is going to include movies, nails, and lounging at home!

    I’m sorry you’re not getting the support you want.  🙁  I personally think that sounds like an awesome plan.  And really, it is your day, so you should be able to pick the main focus.  Maybe, could you find out from them if there are some ideas that could be feasibly incorporated?  Like, if they REALLY want to drink (if it’s comfortable for everyone), having alcohol included? 

    Ultimately, since it is your party, I’d say let them know this is what you want, and this is how you want to have it. 

    And for what it’s worth….I’m planning that my bachlorette party (since it’ll be in fall), will be apple picking and a picnic.  Yes…that cool 🙂

    I like your idea! Are you not comfortable with drinking? I think you can have your sleepover but allow alcohol there if you are comfortable with it. That way they can get tipsy and tell dirty jokes and don’t have to worry about them passing out in public or driving home.

    I think that sounds like fun. My Maid/Matron of Honor had a backup bachelorette party planned involving mani/pedis, popcorn and John Hughes movies, depending on how I ended up wanting the night to go. We didn’t end up going that route, but I loved that it was on the table. It’s your party, you’re the bride, I say do what you want.

    I love your idea.  I would add cocktails as an option in there but about two years ago I did something similar with my FBIL’s now wife when we first met her and my best friend.  We got chinese, had cocktails, and watched girly movies all night and it was so relaxed and SO fun.

    @Ms.Shamrock: I love your idea. Compromise and add cocktails and have fun. I’d rather go to your party than clubbing any day!!

    I would LOVE to go to your party just the way you describe it! I’d even suggest a game of Truth or Dare for extra throwback points!

    Oh oh! How about making it a bartending night? Get those recipes of drinks you love or would love to try. It’ll be fun finding a new drink you’ll love or discovering the ones that are just awful.

    There is also that board game called Dirty Minds. Someone reads out clues that sounds just like sexual activities but you have to think out of the box for the actual answer. It’s really fun!

    You could always have drinks AT your slumber party!! That way you dont really have to drink if you dont want to but others are able to – I think its a perfect compromise!

    I think that sounds like a lot of fun!  In fact, I think my bachelorette will be similar (although it will probably also involve some wine and girly drinks too).  No offense to your BMs, but are they younger, like at the age where drinking is still really exciting?  I feel like once I hit mid to late twenties, that definitely faded for me, so maybe they’re just still in that stage of life?

    Regardless, it’s your party and you’re not asking anything ridiculous, so they should just go along with it.  It’s one night!
