planning my first ever bachlorette party for a family member- do most people know that they have to pay their way for the activity or do i need to pay for everyone or have it listed on the invite… its a three part party-painting class,dinner and chick flicks/slumber party at a home. so the only thing that needs to be paid for is the painting class and possibly dinner.
do people generally play games at bachlorette- i have only been to one -my own – we did dinner and commedy club show. so i am not sure what all is expected of me…

I think you need to be clear with people about the costs up front. I do think it would be nice for you to pay for some portion of it since you are the hostess. But I think if you clearly indicate what is and is not included it should be ok.
I would at the least fully host the slumber party portion and buy all the snacks and drinks and entertainment.

As long as you clear about the costs and no one is blindsided I think of a bach party host as more of a coordinator not the sponsor. You select the activity and resraurant. Communicate the costs. Ask for a contribution to cover the brides costs and now you’re done.
Games are always fun.

A cute invite that I saw said somerging like, “Bring your cute jammies, some dancing shoes, and that rainy day money for a great night out!” It was clear that I was paying, but said tastefully…

People should be expecting to pay, but not everyone will have been to one before so you have to be upfront. Send the invites early with a breakdown of the costs for each part (some people may only want to come for dinner or just the slumber party). Have a separate piece of paper with the prices rather than cramming them onto the invite.
You then have to collect the money as you go but some people will most likely pay you on the day.
