I feel your pain.  You definitely shouldn’t be involved in the planning at all.  Any money/logistical stuff should be taken care of for you, if the party if being thrown by someone for you!!  Can you tell your Future Sister-In-Law that?

I can understand your frustration and feeling overwhelmed with wedding planning and all that comes with it.  But maybe just take a step back and breathe.  The bottom line and the purpose of the bachelorette party is a night to hang out with your best friends, have fun, and just celebrate.  That can be done without spending a ton of money or getting overwhelmed by planning an elaborate schedule for the night.  If you don’t want to worry about planning that’s ok, just let your Future Sister-In-Law know, but just step back and let her handle things.  Whether it is an expensive night out in a VIP lounge or if it ends up being scaled down, it will be a fun night (and your girls would have more fun not worrying about every dollar they spend).

Yeah it sucks have you thought about directing them to Future Sister-In-Law, I think if they don’t know her well and she isn’t in your cirle of friends they might not speak to her directly, a good idea would be to create a privite fb group or exchange emails so they can talk about it and leave you out of it.

@xfhbabix:  just make sure they know that!  Not being part of the planning (and having it planned for you) is the best part, i think!

 

@autumn865:  We’re neighbors!  I live one town over – in heights.

@xfhbabix:  That sucks. Especially when you get your hopes up and then everything changes. Weddings do cost a lot to be part of, but as a bridesmaid usually people know this. Either way I am sure you will have fun. Good luck!

Yup. I think all you can do is ask your SIL to tone down the bach party to a more cost friendly alternative and leave it at that. I’d imaging this is happening because your friends don’t know the SIL so they come to you because they know you. But it’s still frustrating. But you can always give them your SILs contact info and ask them to contact her. It seems like it will make everyone’s lives easier to just do a cheaper night that can still be a lot of fun!
