@ZChick17:  I think it would be nice if you each chipped in a set dollar amount (10 / 20 bucks per person– depending on how many people you have) and gave that to her to gamble with.  Anything above and beyond she should cover.

@ZChick17:  I think I like the idea of a set amount from each BM is a good idea.  I’m tagging this to see what others think b/c we might possibly do a casino trip for one of my engaged friends.

Sounds like a fun time! Personally, I loooove to gamble, and I tend to place big bets after the drinks start flowin! If my ladies were planning something like this for me, I would prefer a heads up so I could pull together some money for the trip. Just a suggestion though, you obviously know the bride better 🙂

@ZChick17:  Definitely chip in a set dolalr amount but after that she’s gambling with her own money.

I definitely like the idea of giving her like 10-20/pp to gamble with! Are you guys going to gamble, or going to drink?

I would do $20 if it’s to gamble, or $10 if it’s to drink.

The bride should not pay for anything that night, so do like others said and give a set dollar amount for her to gamble with.

Yeah I think it’d be nice to give her $20 a person to gamble with if that’s supposed to be the activity for the night. 

How many people are going?  That could maybe make a big difference.  If it’s only 3 other people…well $30 isn’t going to get you very far gambling.  But if you have 10 people, then $10-$20 a person is a decent amount!

After that she can gamble with her own money.  Just make sure you tell her far in advance so she can get some $ ready if she wants it.

I would say gambling is on the bride’s own dime. We went to a casino for my BFFs bachelorette and we payed for wine tasting, dinner, hotel room, stripper…it would have broken the bank to pay for the evening gambling too.

@ZChick17:  like other bees, I think each attendant chipping in 10 or 20 bucks per person would be nice. She can obviously add to that, at her own discression. But having a little bit of fun money to play with would be nice (and the caisono might give her a credit as well, given the occasion. I know a lot of places do that as promo material for certain events (like turning 21)

We did this for one of my friends. The hotel portion was $700 (2 rooms) and we paid for her dinner and drinks. We did not give her money to gamble, and If we offered I would hope she would turn down lol. Weddings are expensive for all involved, I would think Brides are understanding of this and can bring $50 to their own bachelorette party at a casino.

But I should add we did not gamble much- we went to a burlesque show and nightclub in the casino and we paid for her entry.

We are diong a bachelorette/bachelor party this weekend at a Casino for my FI and I and honestly I hadn’t even thought about this. 

It would be very generous of you to give money to gamble with, but I know myself as the bride having a similar party I do not expect it at all and will be bringing my own money to gamble.  But 10 bucks a person would be awesome!
