I would really like for my sister, who is also my Maid/Matron of Honor to be apart of the whole bachelorette party experience. I know she is trying to plan things, but I was hoping I could get some ideas on what to do. She told me we would all just have dinner then we could leave her while we go to the bars. I don’t want to do anything without her! I think she feels like she is a burden, but I could care less if we go to the bars. Any ideas??? I could really use the help!!

Does she drink?
When Future Sister-In-Law got married, a few of us were under 21 but still drinkers. We rented a hotel room for the night, got her all kinds of raunchy gifts, and just partied that way. It wasn’t as fun as bar-hopping, but still fun!

I’m kind of in the same boat-one of my BMs is 16 so I don’t want to do anything that will exclude her. You could do some kind of spa night or movie night? I have no idea what I’ll be doing.

I like lilyfaith‘s idea. None of my BM’s are under 21, but my FH’s brother is. For his bachelor party they are doing a hockey game, and then a friend is hosting a party afterward. Maybe you could do a lingerie party? That would be fun.

My little sister’s 21st birthday was a week after the wedding so we also had to plan accordingly. We went to a restaurant/pub and hung out there for awhile (those of us who wanted to start drinking did so) and then went out to 21+ places after that. I felt bad leaving her at 10 or so but she said she didn’t mind at all. I think it helped that people took different cars, and some had to go home, so it didn’t feel like she was the baby quite so much. Instead it just looked like people were going their own ways.

I like spa day! And a “girl” party is always fun!!! You can have drink then, just at home, and still have a good time. I’m in the same situation. One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man is 17, so I’m trying to plan accordingly too!

Well, the real question is whether or not your sister drinks or not. If she does, then I have a couple recommendations (don’t know the area you live in, this is what’s available near me):
– renting a room at a casino: access to hot tubs, restaurants, and more importantly the bar in your room. Since she’s over 18 she can be out on the casino floor, she just can’t be drinking. Just a note though, not all casinos are 18+ and not all casinos allow alcohol so check those things first.
– a night out at the 18+ clubs
– a twist on her idea: dinner and drinks at a bar and grill, followed by girl time back at either a hotel room or someone’s places, and then the 21+ people can go to the bars if you’d like

i just went to a painting pottery place during a bachelorette party, some of them have girls nights and provide drinks or allow you to bring your own drinks and snacks.

Thank you for all of your ideas! I have decided that I will NOT go anywhere without her because not only is she my sister, but my Maid of Honor…… she does drink by the way, but I really don’t so I’m not all that interested in going to bars anyway….Thanks again for the ideas!

How about a “sleepover” type thing where you guys watch girly movies and drink cosmos until the sun comes up?? You could even have it at a swanky hotel or something …

I don’t drink and I’m not real big on dance clubs, etc. so we had late night belly dancing lessons. They hired a lady after hours to meet us at her studio and we could bring food and drinks (including alcohol for the one girl that wanted it). It was really fun!

I’m another fan of the late night bowling… Like the disco bowling or whatever it is your particular bowling alley offers from like 9-1 on Friday or Saturday nights.. Its a good opportunity to listen to music, goof around, and have some fun with or without alcohol… Anyone that wants to can drink before hand at dinner which should also lead to some extra bowling fun 🙂
