My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning my bachelorette party all by herself. She is planning it at a really nice lounge where they serve drinks in dinner. Since she is not hosting it at her house, she will not be providing dinner/snacks. She asked me if I knew of a polite way of putting on the invite that she will not be providing dinner and that they would need to purchase their own food and drinks.

@jackie_t4701: She can make it short and sweet on the invitations and say something along the lines that the dinner and drinks will be their responsibility.

Technically, she should not put “party hosted by so and so” because that implies that she will be paying. The wording could be “please join us as we celebrate…” She could also provide the restauant link so people would know how much to expect to spend. Hope this helps!

I agree with Peaches. If it is held at a public restaurant, I sure wouldn’t expect my food or drinks to be paid for. If it was held at a private house, I wouldn’t expect anything either and would not come hungry, unless the invitation said something about food.

Good point everyone. I will make sure and tell her not to worry too much about it.
I agree with all of you. I’ve always paid for myself as well.
