@linnylou_88:  I would let the girls know of the date as far in advance as possible. I coordinated mine in June back in December. It is very hard to coordinate 8 girls who have their own lives and busy schedules. I don’t think actual invitations need to go out until 1 month before (though my sister did already send mine out…).

I’d have the host send them like six weeks in advance but if anyone asks you can just let them know the plan. We’re not even close to planning or sending invites for my bachelorette which will likely be May sometime

@linnylou_88:  At least a month to allow people to make work arrangements if they work shifts and to get the money organized, not to mention to have that date in mind.

I’m pretty sure the host of mine gave my girls 8 weeks notice.

6 weeks is generally appropriate.

If you have people who need to coordinate plane tickets or are super busy, give them a heads up as soon as you have a firm date for the party.

@linnylou_88:  Question… who is hosting the bachelorette? They should decide when to send out invites, but they can probably at least let girls know informally via email whenever you have a date selected. As this is a party that is being thrown for you, you should really have very minimal involvement.

@linnylou_88:  you’re wedding is in 8 months (mine too – woohoo!), your MOH has plenty of time to put something together. If not, maybe someone else would like to host it for You. But you really can’t host your own party, esp if you are asking everyone to spend $80/pp. I think it’s a lovely idea, suggest it to your wedding party, but let them know you’re happy with whatever anyone feels comfortable organizing.

@linnylou_88:  I’d send invitations out 2 months in advance, with RSVPs due 2 weeks prior to the date of the bachelorette party.

In my opinion, you can throw yourself a bachelorette party if no one else is stepping up to the plate to plan it. You only get one wedding…. well, in an ideal world, that is. It’s not like people are going to look down on you for planning your own party. If they do, then they don’t deserve to come to the party.

Does $80 include all the drinks as well? Or a cash bar?

I’m following to see the advice. I’m planning my bestfriends and her wedding is also mid october and she has 9 bridesmaids. It is hard as hell trying to get everyone’s schedule together and I’ve already let them know dates lol
