Ok bees, I am having a little drama over the bachelorette party (OF COURSE). I have a night planned at a casino, sounds super fun, all that.
Everyone is so overly concerned about price! I’m already paying for the trip up there (gas) and the hotel room for the night, and everyone has major concern about the price of everything! I have told them to bring what they plan to spend on food/drinks/gambling/spa/etc., but it’s this huge topic of conversation. I think it’s a fairly “control your own expense” sort of thing. I don’t have a swanky dinner planned, so if they want to eat before we go and just have breakfast (included) or stop at McDonald’s or whatever, it’s fine by me!
How do I handle this without being rude?

I’m torn because on the one hand, I do think you should get to do what you’d like to for your bachelorette party, and I also think it’s hugely generous of you to pay for transportation/gas and the hotel.
That said, if your girls are really that concerned about price, is it worth considering altering your plan so that everyone has more fun and there’s less stress? I’m not saying totally cut something that is important to you, but you probably won’t have as much fun if everyone is stressing about cost. 🙂
What kinds of things will the girls need to pay for?

Ah, why is it that everyone always complains about the cost of a bachelorette party? I mean, you spend the same on a night out with friends, or a nice dinner, or designer bags.. etc I could go on…
Especially when the big expenses like transportation and hotel are already paid for.
I don’t get it.
