It came to my attention that my bridesmaids are trying to plan my bachelorette party, but my youngest sister is only 20 years old. Believe me, I’m not trying to go out and get wasted, but when you’re 28 and enjoy getting a cocktail and dancing with your friends, you forget how hard everything was when you were 20 🙂
Bowling has been suggested, which is fine with me (except I wouldn’t get to wear a fun dress and heels!), and I think they’re going to look into those "18 to party, 21 to drink" clubs, but I figured other bees must have run into this before, too.
So: give me some suggestions for a bachelorette party activity that will be OK for my sister to participate in! (It will be in Philly, in case you think of anything city-specific.)

the boys for our wedding are having the same problem. So we decided that we will either all go to a brewers game, or go white water rafting. All people in the party would go plus some close friends. Hope this helps.

My FI’s youngest siblings range from 10-21 (there are 4) so during the day, we will get lunch and do a manicure/pedicure type thing with everyone. Later in the evening, the little ones will drop off and we will go out. It stinks when you’re 20 though because you’re SO CLOSE!! My sister, who’s 20 also, turns 21 one week before my bachelorette party…phew. 🙂

Lucky timing! My sister turns 21 1 week AFTER the wedding (but still 1 month after the bachelorette party)! I already told her she could drink at the wedding, though.
You don’t realize, when it’s not a big deal anymore, how many things involve being potentially carded, even if you just want to get wine at dinner!

When I threw a bachelorette party, we were all under 21 and we stayed in most of the night. We dressed up nice and went out to dinner and then back to one of the girls apartment where we played games, made a scrapbook (each of us took a picture with the bride-to-be and put it on the page and wrote a note and decorated it), and opened presents and whatnot. We had "mocktails" to drink and veggies for snacks. We had a black, white, and gold theme for everything and it all turned out nice and fun.

My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and is only 19…we are going on a cruise out of Galveston…This didn’t turn out to be that big of a deal since all of my bridesmaids live in different citie and had to fly anyway. I live in Houston, so we are just driving down to Galveston together. I really wanted my sister to be able to go, and while I didn’t want to go get drunk every night, I wanted to have a good time with my friends and sister.

Some ideas off the top of my head – a girl’s day at the spa, scavenger hunt, karaoke. Good luck!

Mani/Pedis are always enjoyable and not too expensive. I would suggest looking into some out of the box classes for during the day– circus arts/trapeze, purse making, cooking.
Another idea is a group dance class. I went to a party where we learned a really fun strip routine – which still gives you that bachelorette feel to the day. I know the dance teacher is willing to travel so here’s the website for more details: http://www.divadancenyc.com The dance party can be with or without bubbly!

my sister is 3 years too young so we’re also trying to find age friendly diversions. spa days are always fun, so is shopping, we really like going to a concert and dinner afterwards.

I would suggest spa day and dinner. Or you could always do pole dancing classes.

My favorite girl night is an old fashioned slumber party. That way you can make maragaritas with your friends, have girly time and hang out with your sister too. Oh and slip her a shot or two. 🙂 I’m such a bad girl!

I can one-up you there… the only day that worked for my bachlorette party is FIVE DAYS before my sister/MOH turns 18. What we’re doing is getting dressed to kill and going out to Melting Pot for dinner and drinks.
