alternative bachlorette party ideas?

Recommended Posts

I am not really into the normal bachlorette party. I don't want to wear a tiara and a sash and get in a limo and go to a bar and be the center of attention. I am a much happier person when I am with people close to me. I always knew I wouldn't want the regular party and am trying to think up alternatives.

 

I am all about the drinks, so don't get me wrong there! The only things that I can come up with are:

 

1. Scrapbooking party - (we have a local shop who closes down and allows alcohol) I vetoed this for me, b/c I am going to have my friends all scrapbook 2 pages to compile into a book at my shower.

 

2. Pottery Party - I think this is what I am leaning towards. Renting out a pottery place and having all my friends that care to come paint a dish or vase or something for me and Matt, then the store fires it and we will always have it!

 

If anyone else has any other ideas to add, please let me know!

we did spa weekend for my best friend's wedding. we all chipped in to rent a cabin for the weekend, brought up some food, drinks, etc. and some silly games. and then we went to the spa one day. it was friggin' awesome!

That does sound awesome. All my friends have or will have young children by then, and they all live over an hour away from me. I do love that idea and was going to do something like that for the ones that travel to Jamaica with me, but I think I need something easier (cheaper and less time!) for my bach party.

oh yea - everyone there had kids ... and it was a great excuse to have a kid-free weekend for them. the kids all got daddy time! lol the hour away thing would post a problem, unless you could all meet centrally.

When I was planning my friend Bachelorette party I looked into all us girls taking a Stripping class. This was in Vegas, so of course there were plenty of options! But it sounded like fun, and something just for the girls.

We did a pre-bachelorette party in June at a road-race course where we camped and watched the races. I even got a strip tease from a race car driver at our campsite that night and later a cop 'pretend' arrested me and came back later for a 'handcuff' strip-tease (all very innocent -- but very fun). My MOH husband stayed with us too b/c I am close to him as well and he was our 'chef.'

 

For my regular bachelorette party, we are renting an oceanfront house in my favorite little NC fishing town (my uncle lives there). We're going to go carter fishing and then cook up the fish for a big dinner before we go out one night. We can walk everywhere in this town and it's very laid back (mostly locals, who I know from hanging out w/ my uncle so much) so even going out won't be 'bachelorette-y'.

 

I told my BM I'm not wearing a veil, sash, any of that crap. :-)

 

Tom is going to Atlantic City -- he wanted something cheesier than Vegas!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
