@Kandiss16:  if they are paying to go out of town to Vegas and will be there at the same time together, it makes sense that they want to be there for you and your FI, while still having a small mini-vacay themselves? I know if FI and I were both going out of town for the same bachelor/bachelorette trip, we’d want to do the same thing! I’d be totally psyched to hang with my girls for most of the trip, but would still love to sneak a few minutes away with FI in private while I can. If they are spending money and using vacation time at work for this trip, I wouldn’t hold it against them too much.

Agreed. If my DH and I were out of town “together” we would most definitely want to stay together. Putting the time together aside it just makes financial sense to share a room versus both of us getting a room on our own or contributing to a share room. I would still be 100% focused on the purpose of being there.

Sorry it doesn’t line up with your vision for you bachelorette party, but try not to let it bug you too much – my DH rarely gets vacation time, so if it were us in this situation I would definitely want some alone time with him too if we were using all that time off and money to attend your party.

@Kandiss16:  Ah! Well then that is a different story. Honestly I think I would be okay with the idea of staying seperately (not 100% thrilled) but I doubt my DH would be happy with the idea. So I guess it depends on the people/couple.

In the end if the room is taken care of a few days apart isn’t going to kill us. 🙂

@Kandiss16:  Although I can understand your disappointment as she won’t be with the group full time, finanaces may not be their top priority. Maybe they NEED/WANT  to squeeze in some private time. This is a hectic time of year for many couples. Even just being in your wedding takes away from their time alone.

I don’t blame her for wanting her own room – I personally hate sharing a room with people and avoid it when I can.  Please bear in mind as well that it’s costing them money to go to Vegas, so I understand them wanting to merge that into their own vacation.

Personally if my DH and I were invited to a Bach party in Vegas we would be doing the same thing.  I am past the age of wanting to do a “slumber party of sorts” while out of town. I would rather stay with my DH.

As a very light sleeper I would much prefer to share a room with my FI who I am used to sleeping with than with 4 other girls. I would have a lot more fun on the trip if I got a decent night’s sleep and wasn’t crabby.

 

I also have a really hard time sharing the shower with people due to fragrance allergies which isn’t something all of my friends know. Your friend probably doesn’t have this issue, but it’s something I would personally take into consideration when making accomodation arrangements.
