The extra $ is totally worth it.  I once paid about $300 for a house for the weekend for a bach party.  Real friends won’t care ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with futuremrse, I think the extra $20 is not a lot and totally worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think so, but it really depends on financial status. $20 is a lot of money to some college students.

How old are your friends and their money situation?

Are you all going out of town? I think either $30 or $50 is really cheap for a hotel room.

If you give ample notice than I think $50 is reasonable. We got a suite for my bachelorette party and I ended up paying $120 whereas the other girls paid $45 each. Most of the girls who came for my party are students and although it was tight they managed it because they had a couple of months notice.

As a college student I think $50 is a lot, especially since they’ll need to buy food and drinks all weekend as well. As a college student planning a wedding, I couldn’t swing it.

I know back in the day that to pay $50+ would be a huge stretch for me and my friends.  Maybe go with the cheaper room since hopefully you will only be sleeping and getting ready there?  That way there will be more funds for booze.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m in college and I’d be uncomfortable with spending $50 for a hotel room, but I suppose I’d still do it

while i would also enjoy the nicer suite, i think that it may come across as a bit ungrateful if you take over the planning from your Maid/Matron of Honor.  remember, a fancy bachelorette certainly isn’t a requirement, and i think it would be more important to have your girls be comfortable and happy then stretched and a bit resentful.  besides, you really won’t be in the room that much anyway…and you will have your girls with you, which is the most important thing!

I think you have to accept what they are willing to host.  It is hurtful to tell them that what they have planned isn’t ‘enough’. 

$50 to somoene with no job is a lot of money.  Especially since it isn’t just $50.  Its $50 + food and drinks.  I think it is a lot to expect an out of town Bridal Party when the guests are unemployed students.
