MuseForever:  I don’t feel like the fact that your MOH and Bmaids all living in different places is a good excuse for them not to be planning your bachelorette. I just had mine, and none of my bridesmaids live even remotely close to each other, nor are they even really good friends with each other. I gave them all each other’s phone numbers and email addresses, and they also connected on facebook. Same goes for a bachelorette party I’m helping to throw for one of my friends this weekend. You need to ween your friends off of you and make them connect with each other.

To answer your question about expenses, I was not “allowed” to pay for anything during my bachelorette weekend. And for the bachelorette I’m attending this weekend, we’re also not letting the bride pay for anything.

MuseForever:  My MOH asked me what I would think about a very small, laid back bbq at her place and drinks around the fire, and I loved the idea. We invited a few people that ended up not showing, including my BMs. It was just her and our moms and my aunt joined us later. It was the best bachelorette party and so much fun.

MuseForever: What are your plans so far for the trip? Is there one of them  you could confide in that it’s typically not etiquette for a bride to plan her own bachelorette, and that you would like for them to take the reigns from here? It doesn’t have to be anythign extravagant or expensive, but a surprise and something special.

My MOHs and BMs organized my bachelorette party… it was a whole weekend getaway. Something I NEVER expected. They paid for everything, which is insane. Im still in awe about it and its been 4 months.

MuseForever:  I don’t have a bridal party so I kinda planned my own. Mostly. 🙂 I threw out an email with an idea of an NYC weekend away to about a dozen of my good friends and my sister to see if anyone would be interested, no pressure, and everyone I invited said they were in. I booked our hotel rooms, and my friends made restaurant reservations and found activities to do, bars to go to etc. My sister planned a few bachelorette-type games. We all paid our own way for train/bus, food/drinks, and my friends paid me back their share for the hotel. It was really, really fun and low stress for everyone.

My MOH and BMs planned a night out for me. I was not involved at all, and I know they were FaceTiming and facebooking each other throughout the planning process. There were only 5 of us total, so as far as attendance it wasn’t too complicated.

We’re burlesque performers and my 2 bridesmaids and I co-produce shows. <br />I said I wanted to put on a show for my bachelorette because that’s what i love, so they are doing it!

I’m performing the opening number, and my performer friends who are invited to the weding will each do an act.

It’s free entry for those invited to the wedding, but the rest of the public pays!

It’s going to be an amazing night! FI has always dreamt of a perfect stag do and I think he’s a little miffed because mine is going to be so much fun! Haha!

My MOH (sister) asked me what I wanted to do, since I am older (33) and didn’t want to do what some friends had done in the past – which were still fun… just wanted something different.

We ate and did a “How well do you know the Bride” game. But, the main thing we did was a painting party, and then afterwards just went to a bar in town where we all chatted with one another while having some more drinks. Everyone had a good time, and got to bring something home from it.

Is there anyone in your group who is really type A? Like loves organizing and stuff? She might not want to step on the MOH’s toes. I think that happens a lot. Maybe reach out to the one who you think would like to have control, and mention it to your MOH. Just a thought 🙂
