Ideas for a Non-alcohol Bachelorette

Recommended Posts

There are only a few of my friends that are actually going to my wedding. It's mostly our families. But one of my friends that is going is in NA (narcotics anonymous) and she doesn't drink anymore (they go hand in hand). She was never an alcoholic and she doesn't mind people drinking in front of her but i'd rather do something that's not solely alcohol related (like no bar hopping). I thought maybe a spa day but i'm not sure if she would like that. I dont' know if any of you girls have been in the same situation. But since she is a good friend and one of the few actually going to the wedding I really want to include her in the bachlorette. Anyone have any ideas.

what about cooking classes? or a jewelry party with lia sophia or some other company? OR (and this is what i wish i had done) a scavenger hunt for silly things!

one of my friends it flying in for my party. She will be pregnant so i also didn't want a drinking-centric party. We are going to get together at a friends house & play games, sing karaoke, take silly pictures in front of my green screen & just have fun. Girls will be drinking, but those who aren't will still have fun.

Good ideas girl. cooking classes is pretty interesting and some of my friends could use a lesson! hehe.

 

I would love a party like that Morgan, where i could just act silly with my friends. What is a green screen?

big green sheet to take pictures in front of. Then I will superimpose us in weird places.

i know a lot of sober people - i think it is very considerate that you are trying so hard to make her feel completely comfortable! :)

 

what about a nice dinner at a BYOB (without bring the B) OR a night in with games and snacks OR painting pottery OR manicures/pedicures if you don't want to do the entire spa day

Alyssa- she's a good friend and I'm really happy that she is able to come to my wedding. She didn't think she would be able to come, she just got engaged a few months ago. Game night sounds like fun, i'm a board game dork. Mani and Pedis might be something she likes, she does get manicures.

I know a girl who did one of those murder mystery parties for hers. She said it was a lot of fun.

 

Also, if you have a Bath Junkie near you, those are fun. You can usually reserve a room there for parties and you basically design your own bath/spa stuff...customize the scent, color etc. it's fun.

Welcome to Bath Junkie

Bath Junkie sounds cool! If your crowd is adventurous, what about something like go-kart racing, golfing, sailing, etc. Stuff that keeps you busy having fun so alcohol isn't an issue. (although if I were sailing I would probably sneak in a flask...lol)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
