From my experience, the bridal party does not pay for guests, but the bridal party splits the cost of the bride.  What I would do is include the cost on the invitation (whether its paper invitation, or evite) and request that a check be mailed to whoever is in charge by x date. It’s important to tell people up front so they know how much it would cost to attend if they choose to. I’d hate to show up to a bachelorette party and then have someone ask me for that large amount of money. It’s a bit of a pain but you’ll probably have to chase people down for the money. Keep in mind, that you’ll probably want to get dinner before the pole dancing class (especially if you’ll be going out drinking afterwards) which will add an additional cost to the whole night. It sounds like a fun night, but not everyone will be able to shell out that much money for one night.

So, if the Bridal Party has 5 members in it, they would split the cost of the bride’s fee ($75/5 = 15) and pay that in addition to their cost (75+15 =100).  Those who are just attending would pay $75. Then everyone would pay for the bride’s drinks (and their own) at the bars afterwards. An alternative is to collect a larger sum of money up front so you have enough money to cover the bride’s dinner and drinks afterwards, then whatever is left over is given back to those attending.
