I know that this is a question better posed to the girls attending the bachelorette I’m planning, but what are your thoughts.
There will be 5 girls at the bachelorette I’m planning. The bride wants to stay at an expensive ($250+tax) hotel in our city’s downtown for the night (just one night). The hotel rooms can theoretically sleep up to four (two queen beds) plus a sofa/sofa-bed. So if you were going to a bachelorette, would you rather spend like about $75 to share a bed with another girl for the night (you don’t know the girl) or like $125 for your own bed? This would obviously be in addition to all the other bachelorette fees (food/drinks/cover).

anonybee0810: Not to sound like a sheep, but it would probably depend on the other girls wanting to share, or sleep seperately.
I wouldn’t want to be the only one having my own room with everyone else sharing and having a great time.
Actually, come to think of it, I shared a bed with my FSIL for her Hen/Bachelorette party and that was fine. We were so exhausted and hopped up on booze to sleep properly anyway.

anonybee0810: My girls and I shared beds at my bachelorette and I have offered my girls to stay in my room the night before the wedding in my bridal suite before the wedding which we’ll have to share again. It is saving everyone money that way. Not everyone stayed the night at the bachelorette and not everyone is staying in the suite before the wedding. I think it depends on how many people actually choose to stay the night. If it were me I’d love to share a room so that way everyone can be included and save money but thats just my opinion since weddings can be soooooo expensive!

If I knew who the girl was I wouldn’t mind sharing a bed but if I didn’t know who it was I would probably spring for my own room.

If I’m at a bachelorette, I’m going to be drunk when I fall asleep. I don’t care who I sleep next to…lol.

At this stage in my life, I’d pay the extra $50 to have my own bed. When I was younger in my early 20s, I wouldn’t have minded sharing a bed to save the money!
Honestly, I’d be more worried about 4 girls sharing one bathroom rather than sharing a bed though!
Basically, I’d go with whatever the group wanted though.

I’d be happy to share a bed and save a bit of money that could go towards the night out. But who will have to sleep on the pullout sofa? I always think that person shouldn’t have to pay as much since they’re kind of getting the shaft of a potentially uncomfortable sleep on a sofabed, but that’s just me.

I would be willing to share a bed. Just out of curiosity- are there any other cheaper hotels in the area? Depending on how much money I’m spending on the rest of the party I might just decide to go home instead of paying $75 to share a bed.
Also, since there is a pull out bed couldn’t you technically fit 5 people into a room?

I shared a bed at my now SIL’s bachelorette and it was fine – our night ended up with all of us coming back from a club and just sitting around in one of the rooms drinking champagne and giggling like idiots until dawn anyway so the beds hardly got used.

CityBearBride: The girls are all 21-27, so I figured they’d probably fit in with a demographic that is okay sharing a bed on a party night. But I guess I’ll have to ask to be sure.
Ryansgirl: I don’t mind using the pull-out sofa, ahaha, I wouldn’t want to give one of the other girls the shaft since I’m organizing it.
MrsBeck: There are LOTS of other hotels – and far more reasonably priced ones – but this specific one was requested by the bride, as she always stays here with her fiance. It is a nice and centrally located hotel, and not unreasonably expensive, so it seemed safe just to go with it.
I am relying on fitting 5 of us in the room, but she may need to be flexible if I can’t score something spacious enough, for sure.

anonybee0810: If I knew the other girls, I would share a bed. But I dunno — maybe I’m weird — but I wouldn’t want to share a bed with a stranger! LOL.
I might prefer paying more, but ideally, would ask if we could go to a different hotel that everyone can afford if that’s the issue?

It depends on the crowd I have been to some unpleasantly messy hotel sharing nights (girls puking in the bed, bringing guys into the room etc) and in those cases I was just wishing I had my own damn room. If it was people I knew were cool and I felt comfortable with I’d be fine sharing a bed, otherwise I’d want my own.
