Because we are terrible people and went ahead with this anyway, so my question at this point is pretty much just hypothetical.
I and three of my best friends are all bridesmaids for our other best friend. We are planning her bachelorette party, and decided on doing a river trip. The place we are renting boats from has a mandatory "all boaters must be able to swim rule" for obvious reasons. We all know how to swim, and the bride was super jazzed about the idea when we asked her about it. We sent out the invites to her 20-person guest list, and included a note that in order to get on a boat, you must be able to swim.
Is this super rude? Should we have checked with everyone first before deciding on this activity? We (as in, us BMs) don't know most of the other girls the bride asked us to invite. I think they are all her cousins and coworkers.
The party isn't ONLY boating... we also are having dinner afterwards, at a certain place at a certain time, and figured maybe people who were not into the boating could just meet us there if they wanted. That is, if they weren't already annoyed about being invited to boating bachelorette party in the first place...
