Bachelorette party with a teenage bridesmaid

I'm planning a bachelorette party for my BFF and one of her bridesmaids is her little sister, who is still in high school. This is the first time I've planned a bachelorette party and I wasn't sure if under-18 girls are usually there? Obviously if she comes we can't go clubbing or bar-hopping. Any suggestions on what to do?

My under 18 bro was a GM for our wedding and DH had other events for him to do before they went out at night.

For a bachelorette party, you can do dinner and she can join. Some other things that my other friends have done were day at the spa or mani/pedis.

My sis will be 18, so we're doing a separate "mini-bach party" to include her (the real one is in Vegas). We're doing dinner in SF, maybe a spa day prior.

In addition to the fact that strippers won't perform at parties with minors, you can get in trouble for contributing to the deliquency of a minor if she is in attendance. Mothers have charged for hiring strippers for their teenagers.

I vote for either having a bach party that is under-18-friendly, or having two separate ones (one tame and one not so tame).

For under-18 it could be more like a bridal shower than a traditional bach party.

I agree with pp, do a separate one that's more tame. Then go somewhere else for the real party. ;)

I agree with the pp, it will have to be more like a bridal shower... something more appropriate for all ages!

Yeah, there are so many alternatives you can have and I'm sure they'd be appreciative if you have a separate event for them (instead of them feeling left out of everything)
