Welcome to the hive!! 🙂 I live in Edmonton!

I am also hoping to have a bachelorette in Vegas. It was all of my bridesmaids ideas and we are all looking forward to it!

However, I told them right off the bat that they will not be paying my way at all. I want every single person to go and have fun. I told them they could have 1 night there where they can make it all about me! But the rest of the time I just want everyone to enjoy themselves! I don’t feel its fair for them to have to shell out for a free trip for me! Vegas isn’t cheap. Drinks are expensive and food is pretty expensive too. Plus if you wanna do shows and shopping it gets really expensive! The way I look at it if they want to go ahead and buy a bachelorette package at a bar down there then I won’t argue. But there is no way in heck I would let them pay for my flight and hotel!

Also, so things go smoother for me, I want my girls to each have 1 buddy to hang out with. I don’t know if you’ve ever been to vegas but there are a million and one things to do!! And I have a feeling people are gonna wanna do different things! So I figure if atleast everyone has 1 good buddy (Whether they are invited to the wedding or not) then this should eliminate people not enjoying themselves.

Hope this helps 🙂 Good Luck!!

@MrsMounty:  I’ve gone to a few bachelorette parties in Vegas, they are always so much fun!  We’ve never covered the brides airfare or hotel, but we typically pay for any bachelorette packages we purchase online beforehand at any clubs, pool parties, etc.  A group of 9 to 10 girls is pretty large so the amount they would each be asked to contribute would be minimal.  It’s a nice gesture but definitely not REQUIRED so i agree with you that you should plan to pay your way until told otherwise.

And yes I think its VERY odd that your MOH invited someone you don’t even know without telling you.  That would not fly with my group of friends, lol.  But what’s done is done, I don’t think you can un-invite her.

I’m not married so I’m no help with your wedding-related questions.

 

Have fun in Vegas!

@MrsMounty:  I’d be prepared to pay my own way and then be happily surprised if it is taken care of.

As far as the wedding day details, that is something that you can either have your coordinator do, or delegate to a responsible party to take care of. For my wedding we hired our own DoC in addition to the venue’s provided coordinator. This way, we can make sure that she brings all of the things we need to the site, check my FI and I into our hotel room, make sure the gifts are brought to our room and the cards are, as well before the end of the reception, then gather up everything that we brought in ourselves, pay tips out to everyone who is a vendor, and makes sure everyone is paid & settled with. Honestly, that peace of mind is worth paying some extra bucks.
