  Hi! Just wanted to say that I understand. Out of my 5 BM’s, only 1 was local, everyone else was spread out all over the USA. I had my bachelorette party during the week of my wedding, and honestly…it was great. It was a nice mental break from everything that needed to be done, and it was nice to spend time with my girls! We still went out and had drinks, but it wasn’t anything crazy at all (which is absolutely fine with me, because that’s not my style). It was honestly just nice spending time with everyone, especially since we don’t get to see each other all that often.

  Is there a family member who would throw your bridal shower for you? I’ve been a bridesmaid 4 times, and for the most part, family members took on that task. With some of them, I helped, but didn’t really have to shoulder the cost. Would that be an option?

  I can also understand being frustrated at your FI…definitely not the reaction I would be hoping for either! My piece of advice is that it’s not the craziness of the weekend that makes it…it’s getting to spend time with everyone. One of my friends had this huge weekend bachelorette trip to Vegas planned. Everyone got into fights, they had problems with hotel reservations. Even though it seemed like it was going to be amazing, it ended up being more of a headache. Not wishing anything bad on your FI, but just saying that everything doesn’t always turn out as amazing as it sounds.

yeah, my FI is going for 3 nights with his groomsmen to either cancun or the bahamas.  i don’t know what i’m doing yet, but def nothing that involves flying somewhere/going on a crazy trip/doing something extravagant.

 

ETA: his groomsmen also supposedly have no money. idk i guess i’ve gotten over it at this point & cant be bothered to do much for my own party
