We're doing the spa too! We've been to le Nordik in Gatineau which is 100% worth it! They're opening a location in Whitby this year that we plan on checking out too before we pick where our bachelorette spa day will be.
I'm not a huge party person, clubs and bars are some of my least favourite places to be, so I've requested that my girls find a cute air bnb with a pool so I can float on my giant avocado floatie and just enjoy the sun.
Half of my bridesmaids are sober, so I've been thinking of different ideas as well. We're thinking of renting a cottage on a lake - go hiking, swimming, canoeing, having a campfire and a little diy spa evening.
Other ideas we had were escape rooms, a board games night, pottery making, yoga or dance classes together!
We did a full day of activities for my bachelorette that catered to my friend group- a lot of who don’t drink! So heres what we did: -went for high tea at a tea house and played some icebreaker games because not all my friends knew each other -wine tasting at local wineries (the non drinkers generously acted as our drivers) -picnic lunch in a local park -escape rooms -rented an Airbnb house and played games/ dinner -and we went out dancing after dinner but only for the girls interested in going. The rest just chilled out at the Airbnb. -the next morning we all made a big breakfast together before heading home.

Yes!!!! I want to do the spa so badly!!
My MOH's are planning for me, but I said the same thing. Bar's and strip clubs are NOT for me. I believe they booked an Air BNB and we will do a full spa day with baths, massages, facials and/or whatever treatments the girls want. Then just low key sitting by the fire and drinks. Probably still do some fun bachelorette themed games.
My MOH planned a lovely day! I wanted something fun for a variety of ages, but low key. There were seven of us (from 16-60!). We did a home spa day (facials and nails), went for dinner, and then an escape room! I love escape rooms, and everyone had a blast!
My ladies are planning a bit of an "Amazing Race" style day in the mountains (Canmore) and then getting dressed up with drinks and dueling pianos in the evening. I also did not want anything like Vegas, and I also didn't want to take a big trip for it or anything. My other thoughts were on an adult style slumber party, inspired by Gossip Girl. Spa treatments, cocktails and giant comfy beds.
For my stagette I told the girls that I didn't want to go to strip clubs or vegas. I left it up to them to decide where to go and we ended up going to LA to eat and hang out at disneyland. I've also been to a couple other stagettes that were pretty tame. One of them was a spa date in whistler at the scandinave spa, then dinner out in whistler village. Another stag I went to was a lovely brunch and doing our nails.
My maid of honour organized a brunch and pottery painting with all my friends. Since she lives out of town and we don't get to see each other much, we then watched movies and talked like the good old days. :-) The pottery painting was a huge hit though and good fit with my friends who are all ages.
I’m going to niagara on the lake! We’re doing a wine tour there
It honestly doesn’t have to be something over the top! For my step mom we just got a limo , went to a couple bars and then the casino. We are also planning a wine tour with a limo for my bachelorette and then either do lunch or dinner
