I’m a groomswoman in a wedding this summer and we’re just getting around to planning the bachelor party. They all want to just get a few hotel rooms and share (I’d share with the other groomswoman). I hate this idea for three reasons:
1. I need the hotel points I’d get staying in my own room.
2. I need privacy and haven’t shared a room with anyone but Darling Husband since…ever.
3. I’ve never met this woman before and don’t want to get stuck in a room with a murderer/alcoholic/someone who’s going to bring in strippers (ok, probably none of the above, but you never know).
Can I politely tell them I’m getting my own room? Or does that violate some etiquette rule? I remember telling a bride this years ago when I was in the same situation and she flipped out, so I’m kind of concerned.

I’m in a wedding this summer and I actually want to share rooms because of the cost.
I don’t think it’s horrible of you to want your own room but the other groomswoman may have only budgeted to split a room and she would have no other option but to get her own room.

Just get your own room. Adults are entitled to get their own room, if they don’t want to share.

Sounds like this is to save money. If the other girl is alright with paying full price or staying in a guys room why not?

Yeah, and I feel bad for her, but on the other hand, I’m an adult and haven’t shared a hotel room since I traveled with family. I suppose I could offer to pay for her room with my points if money is an issue….

@starrynight: I would ask her if she doesn’t mind you each getting your own room and go from there. She might feel the same way.

If you want your own room, get your own room. I wouldn’t want to share with a stranger, either. I get that it may pose a hardship to this other woman if she was only intending to pay for half a room, but IMO that is not your problem.
