This is your bachelorette party. You should do what you want. If you want to go out, then you should. When she gets married (or if she already is) then she can have/did have a bachelorette party that suits her.

Maybe she could join you for dinner and then head home if she doesn’t feel like going out to bars?

Maybe you could do something like a fun bowling alley or something that she can join and then go out drinking and dancing and she can leave after bowling. If there’s not enough time, then she can either suck it up, or not go. It’s your party, so focus on what YOU want to do!

This may not be for everyone, but for mine we went to a restaurant in town, so anyone could drink if they want, then went around the corner to an escape room. (we got out!) It was super fun and everyone seemed to get involved. Went to the hotel after and played cards against humanity til people wanted to go to sleep. There was alcohol but not everyone had to participate. It was low key enough, but that doesn’t sound like what you’d prefer. Honestly, do what you really want, and you could totally just go out to dinner with her separately to celebrate becoming family before the wedding 🙂

underblueskies1016 :  You could do the night in stages.  Like, go get manicures, go have dinner somewhere, then go to the club/bar and dance.  FSIL can do the first two, and now out for the last.

underblueskies1016 :  could you maybe start your night with an early dinner and a fun evening class (maybe something dance related, like a burlesque dance, or belly dancing…) before going bar hoping? If your SIL wants to bail after the class and call it a night, it’s her choice, but you can still include her and have the evening you envision

I don’t drink/barhop/have fun and I have been to many bar hopping, get wasted, bachelorette parties. It’s called being a team player! She can come and hang out for a while and leave when she’s ready. I wouldn’t change your plans around her, personally.

Do whatever you want to do! She doesn’t have to go if she doesn’t want to, she can’t expect you to stay in just because she doesn’t like staying out late she can do it for one night surely and drink soft drinks if she chooses

This party is about you! While it’s very considerate of you to try to accommodate everyone it’s ultimately your night and she can suck it up and choose to be there even if it’s not her preferred choice of activity
