My friends and I don’t really go out or drink, so a typical party wouldn’t work. The ideas I’ve seen for alternative types of gatherings seem geared primarily to a larger group. Since my bridesmaids live in several different cities/countries, getting them all together will be impossible. I would still like to do something special, but it would likely be just me and 2-3 other girls. Any ideas for what we can do with a smaller group?

I’m going to have something small too. I’m not a huge fan of the bar-scene, so here’s what I was thinking…..first going out for a nice dinner & then having a ‘girls night in’ with maybe a psychic or tarot card reader or something like that. Somewhat silly, but a fun activity.

Mocktail parties are pretty cool. I always liked movie night
However the coolest bachelorette party ‘hens night’ ive been on they had a ‘scavenger hunt’ her Hubby and Maid/Matron of Honor organised. We got given two-ways and we got given a clue,that all lead to a destination. At each destination there was one of the GMs or one of his friends there and we got given the next clue, and it was all about places they had been or something significant happened. We then ‘collected the groomsmen’ as we went along and it ended up at a restaurant and we had a late dinner. Was really good fun, a bit of work, but it was successful.

i LOVE the idea of a scavenger hunt! what fun. You could take photos throughout the city and put together photobooks of your pursuits!
other suggestions – volunteer together, really hit the spas, make homemade spa treatments at home with homemade ingredients – the bonding time with this one will be high!, do something thrilling like rent gokarts (yes this thrills me haha), learn a new skill (scuba? etc), take a cooking class together.

I planned a friend’s bachelorette party and we did a scavenger hunt where the clues were wedding related and we broke up into teams and had people take pictures that they thought best represented the clue. Things such as something blue or a unique wedding gown. They went into stores and took pictures with random people – it turned into a lot of fun and we had such a good time laughing at the pictures afterwards. Might be tough with a small group though.
Mani/Pedi’s are always fun, or you could take a dance class (lots of people go to pole dancing or lap dancing which is really fun and a good laugh, if they aren’t comfortable with that you could try salsa or something a little more tame)
Orrrr, if you’re doing it in NYC why not take in a show or musical – maybe something girlie like Legally Blonde…..
