In my experience, the bride is treated to her bacheolorette party. You in turn pay for things for your bridesmaids, at least a gift, if not hair/makeup/etc. Of course this varies from situation to situation, but the party cost is split between the bridesmaids or all the guests, however they arrange it.
So enjoy your party and thank your Maid/Matron of Honor later!

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I spoke about this situation. She is a new Mom and is only working part time so money is tight for her. I would love to be able to treat everyone to a fun night, but with the upcoming wedding money is super tight for me too.
We are doing dinner and drinks at a fun place and each person is just paying her own way as far as food and drinks. We did this for a bacheolorette party I went to a year ago and it turned out to be a lot of fun and everyone had a great time. No one really mind paying for their own food and drink.

I don’t plan on paying for anything at my bachelorette party. I’ve never let any of my friends pay for anything at theirs! It was always split between all the girls attending. I plan on thanking them with awesome bridal party gifts and a bridesmaids luncheon the day before the wedding.

At all the bachelorette parties I’ve been to the bride never pays for food or drinks, either the Maid/Matron of Honor picks up a larger portion of the tab and everyone else splits it. Or, everyone just splits it equally.
I have been to a party where the Maid/Matron of Honor paid for the hotel room for all of us to stay at, but for the party I’m going to next weekend we will all split the cost of the hotel…I’m not sure if the Maid/Matron of Honor is paying for the brides portion or not, if not, I’m sure we will split that too.
