OOT Bachelorette - Things to do?
So my little sister's bachelorette is in less than 2 weeks. We're going out of town for a weekend (Friday thru Sunday) to Savannah, GA (we live in Atlanta so it's about a 5 hour drive) with her bridal party and some other guests (who are also invited to the wedding). I'm her MOH and I'm the one hosting the event so I'm pretty sure I've taken care of the generics. I've booked the hotel rooms, we're carpooling as a group, and I've made a dinner reservation for the night of her actual party.
I guess my question is we have a full day Saturday that's pretty much open. In my invitations, I included a section for an itinerary of sorts that had daily "highlights". Some of the Saturday highlights included shopping and a trip to the beach before returning to the hotel to get ready for an evening out. Do you all think I need to make more detailed plans for the day of Saturday? Right now the only hard plans I have laid out are that we need to be back at the hotel by 5:30 to get ready for dinner and bar-hopping. While I don't think we need to have everything planned down to the minute...I feel like the day of Saturday is vague as far as plans are and I don't want people to get bored or feel like they need to hang out at the hotel all day because I don't have something pre-arranged. Should I consider making a list of free "fun things to do" in the area? Like historic home tours? Museums? Interesting shopping districts? We're a group of 13 so I don't want everyone to feel like we have to do everything together and get group-consensus on every single little activity.
I guess I'm really just at a loss. I've never hosted a bachelorette before and the one bachelorette party I've attended was incredibly small and low-key (the bride was pregnant and her MOH wasn't really the party-planning type) so I have nothing to compare against.
Finally, we're hosting a surprise thing for my sister. I can't go into details because she's on TK and while I don't know if she ever stalks this board I don't want to take any chances. What are fun bachelorette party games that we can play before dinner and also during the evening of? I've gotten very little feedback from the rest of the bridal party...I think they are all in the same boat I am...clueless and inexperienced.
