@jesssamesssa:  By sister I assume you mean stepsister or something because otherwise wouldn’t you have the same mom?

Anyway, for your sister, obviously her mom comes ahead of your bachelorette and you can’t expect her there.

For the rest: have you considered doing a single night (or day) instead of a weekend? I’ll admit up front I’m “old school” on this – I think a bachelorette should be a single day or night. A weekend is a big commitment and that is why it’s so hard to get the girls to agree. But if it’s a single day or night, you might have a better chance of getting most of the girls to come.

@jesssamesssa:  I would just do a nice lunch for the “bachelorette” deal, so that you can say you did have one, but then hold off on the girls weekend until after the wedding. That way you can show how much you care about your sister, and show how important it is to have all your girls together.

I lost my dad to brain cancer a couple of years ago and I still had family events to attend (no bachelorette parties tho) and it was really hard to be totally present, but I still wanted to be there. If you just do a lunch, your sister will be included and won’t feel like she’s responsible for you not having your bachelorette party.

I would definitely do one night instead of a weekend.

And if no one can make it, do a nails and wine partyin your hotel room the night before your wedding!

@jesssamesssa:  You should come to Myrtle Beach next weekend with whatever girls can make it, and we’ll meet up and roll deep in the club! 🙂 LOL

I understand what you mean though.  Only one of my bridesmaids can’t make it, but about 3-4 other friends we invited aren’t going to make it either. It sucks not to have everyone, but I’ll just enjoy getting away for a weekend and having some girl time!
