So…I’ve known my bachlorette party was scheduled for Sept. 1st for about a month and a half now…I’ve known!!
Today my MOH asked me who is coming…and I was like…Ummm…I don’t know! LOL she asked me who I invited. Oh boy. Time snuck up on me and somehow in my head I thought that my MOH and bridesmaids were taking care of that…I’m not sure how I thought that because nobody asked me for contacts. SO, I just sent out a mass text message to all my friends but I doubt we’ll get a huge turnout seeing as it’s short notice and a long weekend here in Canada!
Bottom line….I suck!

I thought the MOH and other bridesmaids were supposed to do the inviting not the guest of honour which is YOU! I sure hope people come, if not, can you not just make it on another day before September 14, maybe next weekend, the 8th?

@happyface: This. The person(s) planning it are the ones who invite people.

Yeah it was definitely not your responsibility to get the invites sent out!!

Yup, not your fault at all. They totally dropped the ball on this one.

Ditto to what others said!
She’s supposed to be the host: plan the party, invite the guests, make the necessary reservations.
I hope your besties are still able to make it!!!

@Songbird29: Definitely your girls dropped the ball here. they organize the event and that means they need to send out invites to people. Also IMO the MOH should be close enough to you to not actually need to request contact lists.

@drummerbride: Eesh. My MOH is one of my best friends, but she is definitely going to need a contact list. She doesn’t know 80% of the people I’d want to invite.

@vorpalette: My MOH is also my BFF, she would just go through my fb friends list for the contact info she needs if they decide to go for a surprise bachelorette, she would only need to do that for co-workers or future in-laws though and honestly I don’t think a bachelorette party is the appropriate place for those people.
My MOH is part of the same group of friends.

Well my MOH has been my best friend since forever, but it’s true there are a ton of friends that she doesn’t know. In her defense my 2 sisters kinda took a keen interest in planning the bachlorette party, so maybe somehow that detail got missed! My sisters are QUITE a bit younger than I am!
We can’t do it on the 8th of September because my other best friend is getting married on the 7th….errr…..see my previous post on that one!
I’m sure we’ll have a good time, even if it’s my bridesmaids!

They could have asked you for a list of who you wanted to invite (that is what my bm did). I hope you still get a few girlks to come out and have fun.
