@MissKit:  I felt exactly the same way you do about bachelorette parties, and I told my Maid/Matron of Honor that I really didn’t want a *real* bachelorette party.  She understood and said she was kind of expecting that from me.  We ended up just going out for mani/pedis, and a nice dinner, nothing crazy.  Out of my 6 bridesmaids, only 3 made it (1 was out of town, 1 was my baby sister, and 1 was busy so we supplemented by inviting 2 more girl friends), and it worked out okay in the end!

Maybe you could do a nice spa day with the two BMs that could make it?  If you tell the spa ahead of time, many let you bring in champagne or snacks.  The three of you could have a big relaxing spa day without any drama.  Rent a hotel room that night, and have your sleepover!

@MissKit:  I only have 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and my Maid/Matron of Honor, and we just went out to a few nice dinners and wine bars (no crazy parties) and it was perfect.  It gave us a chance to talk and really catch up (they’re in CA, I’m in NC).

I could have written part of that myself. There are no issues in my bridal party at all, but outside of the bridal party, I don’t really have other friends. (How did my life get so sad?!)

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I talked about it and really, a nice dinner out followed by a girls’ night in (wine, cheesy movies, snacks, whatever) sounds perfect. I have some acquaintances I could invite but since they’re not invited to the wedding, I probably just won’t bother. I’m not a club person anyway. Plus my SIL is pregnant, so whatever we do, I want to make sure she is able to come without being uncomfortable.

Truthfully, I find the wild-and-crazy bachelorette parties to be a bit icky. I’ve been to a few, and they didn’t do it for me.

What if you did something just before the wedding?  Since you want something so lowkey, maybe the BMs could come in and you could do it 2 nights before?
