Hi everyone… I need advice. I live near Losa Angelesam getting married in less than two months and am planning the whole thing almost entirely BY MYSELF (we’re also paying for it ourselves), which I totally don’t mind even though I’m not very good at organizing, well… anything lol. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I now have to plan my own bachelorette party too! Something I have very little time, money, or energy left to do… 🙁
Does anyone have any easy ideas? How about for gathering friends and money? How do I not get stuck paying for the whole thing myself if we do something like rent a limo or hotel room…? I feel like every time I’ve done anything remotely similar in the past it always ended up being completely disorganized and I got stuck with a hefty chunk of the bill because too many people decided they couldn’t make/afford it (my fault?)
Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated! Thanks so much!

@breevoux: A bachelorette party is thrown in your honor so you cannot host your own. Ask a friend to host it for you if you really want a proper bachelorette.
If this is not possible, you can still organize a fun girls night out, just don’t call it a bachelorette and don’t collect money to cover the cost. Everyone should just pay their own way dinner/drinks, whatever.

@breevoux: just plan a night out, a bar crawl or something. it doesn’t have to involve limos and hotels. espeically is everyone’s funds are low.

@breevoux: We did an afternoon of shopping, grabbed dinner, went out dancing that night, and crashed in one room at the closest hotel ($20/pp for 1 room)!

@brandnewbride That sounds like what I had in mind. Now I just have to decide which bars. Downtown LA or Long Beach.

For my best friends wedding, I had planned on doing a slumber party type thing. Get together with sleeping bags, etc, watch chick flicks, eat snacky foods and pizza, do each others hair and nails, so on and so forth. Stay up all night and just have general fun. Maids were going to bring the snack foods and fizzy stuffs. If you insist of having alcohol, you could each bring a bottle of liquor and make jello shooters and mixed drinks and play drinking games. Alas, my best friend moved her wedding date up, and I didn’t have time to throw her the bachlorette party, but that is what I suggest.
