My maid of honor is having some trouble trying to figure out what to do for my bachelorette party….
I personally don’t care for one, but it is a tradition blah blah blah….. I’ll just go with it.
We are all from Los Angeles which makes it easy to do a weekend somewhere, everyone is excited to go away for the weekend somewhere and sometime this summer. It is the typical LA party, the thing now is to go away for a night or 2.
My MOH first thought of a 3 day party cruise to Ensenada MX, it usually runs about 250 a person but it’d be cheaper because we’d be going on a big group (15 to 20). Unfortunately for us, 3 day cruises during the summer jump up to almost 500 dollars a person! That’s insane, no way I’m asking them to foot that kind of bill.
MOH is frustrated because she isn’t too crazy about Las Vegas so she is leaving that idea as a last resort. But I love Vegas……specially during summer. Pool parties, clubs…. girlfriends…. it just sounds like so much fun! Should I just suggest to do Vegas? It really isn’t my call, but at the same time, it kind of is… or is it? IDK, I have no idea how this works.
Is Vegas even a good idea for a bachelorette party?
Do you have any other ideas?
PS, the MOH is estimating the party to be sometime in July or August. I’m getting married in October. Plenty of time to plan so she shouldn’t be freaking out so early on haha

If Vegas is what you want, do it! I was born, raised, and currently live here in Vegas and still couldn’t imagine having my party anywhere else. I’m not a crazy party girl, but I love all the options I have for fun. I don’t think it is too cliche, and it is your bachelorette party so I think it should be about what you want. The only other place I would consider is NYC, and that is out of the question. You could always consider San Diego or San Fran, but if you are a fan of the pools and nightlife then Vegas is the place to go. Plus, it’s a cheap flight or short drive away from LA. I would suggest it to your MOH, good luck!

@MrsClumsy: I just texted her (I am really bored at work today lol) and she already didn’t like to hear it. She said it could be very expensive if we don’t do it right. Ummmmm so that’s why we are going to do it right? haha
Besides, going for 2 nights, taking it easy the first night, doing a pool party the next day, then a club at night, is the usual Vegas trip we all always do anyway. It wouldn’t be any different this time around….
We considered Palm Springs but talk about expensive!
Out of all our different ideas, Vegas is the only one I actually liked. I’m not a crazy party person but who doesn’t like Vegas? Besides, I’m already taking the MX cruise with my FI and a million other friends in 2 weeks, twice in a year sounds like too much.
Do you have any suggestions as far as bachelorette packages over there? No thunder from down under!! hahaha. I just want a nice club, a table, my girls…. maybe and just maybe, I’ll wear a tiara hahahaha oh god…. is it over yet????

I don’t understand how the cruise, at $500/person, is out because it’s too expensive but a hotel, table service, dinner, drinks, etc in Vegas for a weekend is any cheaper/per person?
You made a suggestion which is fine, but it’s really your MOH or whoever has offered to plan it. So now you should just let her take the reigns. She probably has spoken to others about budget and is trying to work within that.

@antisocialite: She actually hasn’t talked to the others, because they don’t know each other yet. I am the mediator till we can all get together once I move into my house next month. She is my high school best friend, everyone else are my work girlfriends, FSIL and future cousins. There’s 10 total.
Vegas would be a lot cheaper than the cruise. I know this because I go to Vegas 3 or 4 times a year. I’ve been to Vegas with every girl in my bridal party except 3 of them, and we all know the inner workings of deals, suites, table service and pool parties, including one of them who lives there and has connections to promoters at night clubs. Which is why I think it’d not only be easier to organize, but cheaper.
I made a suggestion but after all, it is MY bachelorette party, I think I should have a say in where I’d like to go. Is not like she will be paying for me or anything… I don’t believe in the girls splitting my expenses and paying for me. If anything, I’ll probably fork out the money for the clubs and dinner for all of us myself.
Anyway, that’s how I know the cruise would be a lot more expensive.

@MrsPiggles: I had a low key bachelorette in Vegas, just me and one girlfriend. I must say, it was absolutely fantastic! We dressed up super ridiculous, ate penis candies, got burgers, drank lots and had great long talks.
We considered a Thunder From Down Under, but wanted to wait until we’d go to see if we wanted to, and then were too busy drinking at the Venetian to buy tickets in time. Oh, well. We didn’t go to any clubs, but we did have a great time having dinner at that Gordon Ramsey burger restaurant in Planet Hollywood. Delicious, good food and excellent beer menu. The waitress was very amused by our tiaras and kept bringing more and more samples.
It might be slightly more tricky with that many more people, but it has potential to be very fun!

@Fizzy8: Gordon Ramsey knows how it is done!!! I absolutely love that place!!!!!!
The thing is, we are all so used to going to Las Vegas together, it is going to be soooo easy to organize us all… we all like the same night clubs, we all like the same music and Djs… we all LOVE the Venetian…. so it is pretty much a no brainer… besides, we stay at the Venitian every time we go, last time we already got hooked up on the room so I am pretty sure we can get a big suite for all of us for peanuts. The only one that isn’t really on board is the MOH which sucks because she is the one that is supposed to “organize” it. I texted the rest of the girls earlier and they are soooooo ready for Vegas. Specially because 2 of them will be turning 21 this year before the party is supposed to take place.
MOH mentioned wine tasting in Temecula. I love wine…..but I’m really not down wine taste for this specific event.
Anyway I was just curious to know if Vegas was a good idea. It sounds like you had a blast! That’s all that matters in the end….
