Whether your MOH is in her second trimester, or wine just doesn’t fit in with your wedding diet, there are a number of reasons why you may want a booze-free bachelorette. Fortunately, there are tons of New Jersey options where you can kick back with your girls without alcohol in the mix — inappropriately-shaped straws optional.
1. Cook up a storm.
If you’re looking to brush up on your culinary skills before you become a wife, a cooking class is the perfect place to do it. Hudson Table offers group lessons for everything from comfort food to drool worthy desserts, and is a fun place to get together with your besties and tackle a fun new project together. What’s better than that?
2. Take the plunge.
For thrill-seeking groups, pop over to Trapeze School New York to indulge your childhood dream of running away and joining the circus. You can take a class where you learn the basics of trapezing—and jump off a platform 23 feet in the air! Or head over to Six Flags Great Adventure where you can ride the tallest and fastest roller coaster in North America--and buy a souvenir photo of your crew to prove it.
3. Sweat it out.
A group fitness class is a healthy alternative to the typical late nights and hangovers associated with a bachelorette party. Stir up a friendly competition with your ‘maids at a pole dancing class at Pole Dance Revolution—and bring home some moves to show off to your groom.
4. Cheer your heart out.
Catch a game at one of New Jersey’s many sports stadiums, including Prudential Center, MetLife Stadium or Red Bull Arena. If you’re looking for a slightly more throwback vibe, head over to Medieval Times, where you can root for knights as they battle for the evening’s top spot—all while you enjoy a feast fit for royalty.
5. Pamper yourself.
If relaxing is more your speed, set up a spa day for your wedding party where you can chat while getting manis and pedis, and then follow it up with facials so you’re looking fresh for the big day. Bliss has locations all throughout New Jersey where you can get manicures, pedicures, massages and facials, while The Conscious Bachelorette offers aromatherapy, massages, reiki and guided mediations for you and your ladies.
