Justbrynne:  The first thing I would do is send out an email/fb message/text to all girls who are attending any or all of the events.  I would clearly state that no one is to contact the bride regarding the party or the day’s events.  Secondly, I would sent out another email detailing the events of the day, the price, and request an RSVP for all events by a given day.  Make sure to state that a specific count is needed for certain activities and that any cancelations can have a major impact on the day.

It is really sweet that you have taken the planning upon yourself. 

Try your best to celebrate that day with those that decide to attend. 

Best of luck…….

After dealing with hosting parties, it’s always so interesting to see how people RSVP or who they contact – when they shouldn’t contact them.

I just had my bach. party this past Saturday, and everyone was advised of the date back in May… so plenty of time to plan. We did a painting party, which required people to register and pay via PayPal, and I know my sister sent out many emails reminding people to do so.

I also had a friend lie and say she had something going on in the afternoon, so she couldn’t make it to the party cos she was out of town training for work for a bank. The party started at 5 to eat, but the painting didn’t start until 6:30… but then was able to meet us out around 10:30 that night when we were at a bar (after texting us around 9 saying it’d be an hour). Besides the fact that she posted a picture of her grilled corn for lunch on FB, so she was obviously home and just didn’t want to do the painting or anything else. I’m glad she came, but seriously? I spent over $100 on her party,and even traveled for it (she wanted to have hers in a diff city) back in May. Heck, one friend forgot to pay, so she just watched us and she was fine with that. Some people.

Justbrynne:  I would just contact all the girls and reiterate the fact that the bride is not to be contacted. They can say they’re sorry for not making it after the party. As far as them not feeling comfortable, it’s more than likely just an excuse not to come. The same thing happened for my friend’s bachelorette party a couple weeks ago. One girl has to “pick up a shift at work”, one girl “had a headache”, and one girl “coudn’t get a ride”. Only the first one was believable but we just brushed it off and enjoyed ourselves.
