alternative bachlorette party ideas?

Recommended Posts

How surprised are you that all hardly any of us want the traditional bach. party? I guess I should've expected so, since most of us are going the DW route. great ideas ladies! I will talk to my sister today about our options, but I might stick with the pottery thing...

I second the wine tasting thing. I had a lingerie party at a local wine bar and we did a tasting (really drinking) of 5 different champagnes. It was awesome. The spa weekends and camping sound fun too though, and I'm totally with you on the non-traditional thing. I think everyone invited was relieved as well.

good point! when i was in college, my group of girlfriends made a pact that none of us would to the bar-hopping, penis-wearing, giggly girl bachelorette party thing when we all got married. and we all held true to the pact ... except one girl - and she's totally changed since college, so we weren't surprised. i've only had to go to a few of them, and hated every minute of it! lol are you all also the type that just cringe and hide when you see a bachelorette party walk into the bar you're in? i do!

Dinner and drinks with your best friends at your favorite restaurant or a new place you've been meaning to try.

 

A spa day or make up party!

Oh lordy yes, Ann. I feel embarrassed for them. Especially when they are all drunk and dancing on the bar with short skirts on. That seems to happen all the time in Philly. I am fine with it, if that is fun for them, but I jsut don't see how. I guess I have always been more laid back then that.

 

And male strippers do NOTHING for me. I would much rather watch a woman stripper, but I do not want to be the one they are focused on, EVER!

OMG I cannot believe I forgot to post about my bachelorette party! Actually, we called it a Stagette party since that sounds more fun! So, I am not the type of girl at all to want to wear a tiara, go to random bars, get really drunk and be embarassed. So instead, one of my best friends planned a slumber party for 11 of us and it was awesome!

 

Well, it started out as a slumber party and they had a surprise planned for me: exotic dance lessons! It was soo much fun! We had a few drinks, and then they surprised me with clear high heels and some fishnets and I was like, "thanks guys" and then they all pulled out their highest heels, oversized button-down shirts and we all got dressed and told me where we were going! It was hilarious, 11 girls wearing men's shirts and heels and learning how to dance all sexy. Oh, and it was a private class obviously.

 

It wasn't raunchy at all, very tasteful and sexy, I would actually take more classes. I will find out the exact name of the class, but it was great. We had contests like "Sexiest Hip Roll" and "Secret Saucy" and I got to judge! And I got three videos to keep, one even has chair moves. So much fun! My FI was definitely happy about the evening...he didn't know what we were doing, just that they asked him what size shoe I wear. Ha! He was nervous!

 

So, just thought I would throw that out there in case it sounds fun. It was a blast!

Jill that sounds like the best party ever!!! I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't like strippers... so a slumber party with all my girlfriends and then a private exotic dance lesson where we could all have fun would be SO awesome. I so wish this idea would magically pop into my sister's head!

I don't know, I feel weird about it. Like, I don't really deserve one because I'm getting married away. And honestly, I'm PERFECTLY happy with not doing anything until we get to Mexico and then just going to the spa with the girls. But, it'd still be sweet if she did plan one.

Are they usually a surprise? I don't think it would be weird for you to talk to her about it, even if you said exactly what you jsut said - that you'd be happy doing a spa day in Mexico. Don't forget that it is about YOU. I am sure she is thinking of doing something, so why not have some input? But then, I am a planner, not much for surprises, so I am going ot be involved in my shower and bach. party. My sister tells me it's cuz I am controlling.rofl.gif But I don't go crazy about the details either, which is kinda why I want to be involved, so that everything is pretty low-key.

    • 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
