what did you do for your bachelorette party?
Posted: Dec 23, 2009 1:32 PM

One of my bridesmaids is in town visiting for Christmas and we're trying to figure out what the heck to do for my bachelorette party. Just looked over the articles here tagged "bachelorette," but they're all about destination weekend-long events, and we don't have the budget for that. It's gotta be a one-night thing two days before the wedding.

So tell me, creative, fun folks here, what did you do? I would love to hear your stories of how you & your ladies celebrated.

My girls threw me a little party (by little, I mean my 3 BMs, one other close friend who was helping with the wedding, and me). We had lots of tasty snacks and pink drinks and just hung out and chatted for a while. They really did a wonderful job with it - they had a theme and decorations and everything! The gal who hosted it at her condo loves throwing parties and always does a great job.

Then later, we went out for some dancing. Frankly, I would have been content to have skipped the going out and just hung around for a while later, but I had a great time nevertheless!

We did dinner w/ my BM's and then a bunch of my other gf's met up with us and we went out dancing and drinking. DH was our DD...he dropped us of and picked us up! Haha. Mine was pretty cliche and I was also pretty cliche drunk as well.

HOwever I've been to other overnight B parties which were lame, I've to to B parties in a limo, some in a limo-bus that were fun and not fun. Some at people's houses where we sat around and played "Never have I ever" for hours. They are all different. whats important is you do what YOU Want to do with some awesome girls in your life. I think some of the lamer parties were lame b/c the bride's lifestyle wasn't taken into consideration. Why you would plan a crazy night out for a bride who normally doesn't do stuff like that is beyond me.

Anything you do can be fun...even if it's a little sleepover at home with movies and drinks or soemthing.

We went to a comedy club for my bachelorette party. It was a lot of fun. I, of course, had my bachelorette gear on so all the comedians poked some fun my way. It was a really good time, so I'd definitely recommend that! We met at the hotel we were staying at and had some drinks and appetizers. We all went for dinner and then to the comedy club. Those who didn't want to spend the night went home after that. Those who were went back to the hotel to drink and B.S. together. It was a very good time.

Agree with NJ that you should plan something that YOU will actually enjoy.

For mine, we got a private room (at no extra charge) at a local salon and all got a mani or pedi. Then out to dinner at a casual Mexican place, then went to a local bar that's known for good bands--and it was bluegrass that night, which I happen to love. I think most of us were a little tipsy but nobody was falling-down drunk...but most of us are in our 30s and I certainly didn't feel the need to have a stripper and get crazy drunk since I've already done that before LOL!

For my best friend's bachelorette a few years ago, she, her other 3 BMs and I spent the weekend at one of the BM's houses mostly just hanging out in the pool and BBQing. We also had the cliche night out at a local bar, where we drank some but mostly just focused on playing a bad game of pool (we all sucked). I think we also made her wear a sparkly bachelorette crown part of the weekend, which in itself was fun because it's SO not her, plus I think the sparkly crown had pics of half-naked men on it. So it was all casual and totally her and I got to know her other friends better.

Good luck planning!

we are going to a strip club and taking private lap dance lessons then having dinner in the club (which actually has a 4 star restaurant)!
the next day we are going for manis, pedis and massages.

I actually had two bachelorette parties! My first party was at my best friend's house and they had a rep from the Surprise parties come and they bought all types of lotion, lingerie, and toys. And if you look at my profile pic, that is the result of that party! LOL We also had drinks, food, and music. Such a blast. That was a month before the wedding.

Then the night before the wedding, they had another party at my BM's house. There we had more food, music, and drinks with a stripper! Another blast!

What I love about both, was they fit my personality. For example, at my stripper party, the design on the cake was a stiletto shoe and a Dooney & Bourke bag. So cute!

So make sure your party reflects your personality so you can have a great time! Good luck and keep us posted.

Ladies,

I did not have a bachelorette party, as they came into vogue long after I got married.

My niece did. A group of girls went to a local minor league baseball game together.

I have not had my party yet, but I'll tell you about one of the most hilarious nights out I've ever had..a friend of mine was getting married and we made up a list of the various types of guys she had to get her picture taken with, plus we made a dare list.

Some of the the examples on her list for pictures (which we did find!):
Motorcycle dude
Stoner dude
Hippie dude
Dead dude (she posed by a grave in a cemetary)
Cowboy dude
Porno looking dude

We ended up at a bar, and one of her dares was that she had to ask a guy for his underwear, wear it over her jeans and dance to a song. She ended up with a pair of Tazmanian Devil boxer briefs!

My friends are CRAZY, so I'm a little scared of what they have planned for me!
