Favors are for kids’ parties.

Decorating is optional (but fun). If you have miscellaneous expenses like decorating, it is reasonable to take a set amount of money from each girl attending.

I always think of bachelorette parties as a gift from the girls to the bride; and like any gift it’s whatever the givers can afford, and the recipient can’t make demands. So it rubs me the wrong way to have the bride and her mother organising it and expecting certain things. All I wanted was a fun time with my friends, and hopefully your friend (who I assume is pretty well your best friend if you’re MOH) is the same. To summarise: if the bride is disappointed that’s her problem not yours.

I think for me, “special” means spending time with my girls and making memories, which doesn’t have to cost very much. 

I don’t think decorations are necessary for an out of town bachelorette weekend, and the lingerie shower sounds like fun! 

Maybe just get the tiara and/or sash that says bride, so she can have some fun pics. But other than that, I am sure this will be special for her because you and all her friends are there. That should be more than enough.

jeg14:  we went ton a one night vacay for my friends bach party and had the same situation that we all arrived at the same time so couldnt decorate the room for when she got there – but we did have a spa afternoon booked so whilst she was in getting her massage one of the other BM’s and I ran up to the room and jsut blew some balloons up put a couple of banners up and sprinkled some confetti and ran back down – she had no idea and was so suprised and happy when she saw it! it doesnt have to be expensive but little touches make a big impression – if you could nip off for 20 mins you could possibly do something simular

Definitely don’t need favors!! Decorations are fun though, and can be super duper cheap.  Hit up the dollar store, and buy cheap balloons, streamers, confetti, and a crown / tiara or sash for the bride.  When you guys are getting ready to go out for the night, or before the lingerie shower, have one of the other girls bring the bride on a quick ‘errand’ to the local store because she forgot something. Then decorate so it’ll be a surprise for her when she gets back!  If you ask each of the girls to pitch in $5 or $10 that should definitely be enough to cover decorations if you can’t afford it!
