I’ve never been invited to a bachelorette party and assumEd anyone would pay for anything for me. In fact we have always all shared the cost of paying for the bride (the bridal party that is). I don’t think you have to say anything, it should be assumed. It’s not a party for the guests it’s for the bride.

@misspj3:  As a Bridesmaid or Best Man, I would assume I was to pay for my own meal/pedicure. If you want to make it more clear, you could ask the people involved if they are comfortable with the restaurant & let them know the price of the pedis. I’m sure they’ll appreciate being asked if the places you picked are in their budget, and that will be a subtle heads up that they are required to pay for themselves.

They should definitely not expect you to pay for them.  You can always say….don’t worry I am taking care of the bride’s this and that so just worry about yourselves.

I agree with @MsJ2theZ the entire group should split the costs for the bride. I think it’s incredibly generouos of you to take on those costs yourself.
