Are there other memebers of the bridal party who could pitch in?

In my experience, with bachelorette parties, the bridal party covers the bride’s costs, and their own, and everyone else covers their own.  I’ve never been to a bachelorette party where I didn’t pay my own way (haven’t had mine yet).

I don’t think that would be tacky at all. If I was attending a bachelorette party, I would expect to pay for my own costs (lunch, spa costs, drinks, whatever). It would be super sweet if it was free, but I wouldn’t expect it.

You’re not responsible for paying for the costs of a bachelorette party – the guests pay for that. Plan for events that your friends can afford.

If you’re all high rollers, shoot – fly to Vegas (or Iziba!) and party it up. If you’re a bit on the financiallly conservative side, dinner and a movie, or even just meeting at a swanky lounge for a drink or two will suffice! 🙂  Either way, generally the attendees pay for the bride and themselves to participate.

As long as the cost is covered for yourself by the party then the rest of the girls are on there own.

I thought everyone paid for themselves too.  I have been to two bachelorette parties and both times I paid for my own meal, drinks and cover charge at the bars (if there was one).

All the BMs pay their own way. This is expected, it’s not rude in the least. So your sisters will have to have your parents pitch in. I don’t think $60/for each sister is a big expense for your parents, just discuss with them how much they can give your sisters and work within that budget. If your’e really strapped for cash, get a groupon for half off manis, just get the manis and then go out to dinner or get chinese, it’s cheaper. Again, use a groupon for dinner.

I’ve never attended (or heard of) a fully hosted bachelorette party.  It is typical for the bridesmaid(s) to pay for themselves and for the bride, while everybody else pays their own way.
