Because one of my bridesmaid’s is also being shared by another bride getting married within 1 month from me (Who I’ve met by the way, and am friends with on Facebook.). I thought about to save her money and time and for that fact that more girls equals more fun (or maybe more drama?), and we want to go to the same places anyway, why not combine our Bachelorette Parties? (Obviously, only if it’s okay with the other bride.)
Well my bridesmaid (also my FSIL), was totally cool with that idea. Well I guess she spoke to my best friend/MOH (who is hosting my bachelorette party), and she totally does not like and is not okay with that idea… I don’t know the exact reason. But either because I shouldn’t be sharing the spotlight with someone else? Or maybe she’s afraid of drama happening? Or for the fact she’s hosting it, and because I didn’t bring the idea by her first?
So now I’m kinda bummed, because the thing is, other than my best friend. I have NO friends!!! All the friends I had from college have moved away!!! 🙁 And my 3rd bridesmaid, my sister, usually has to work weekend nights at a bar…
So, how is a bachelorette party going to work with only 2 other people? That is NOT a party! I feel depressed thinking about it…. That’s why I never throw parties, because nonone would come to them…

I had a 2 person “bachelorette”. It was fun, but also more of a girl’s night than anything!
I vote you combine!

@raziel1687: I vote combine! It’s essentially just a girly night and the more the better! Especially if it means taking the stress of you in regards to people coming

Not to rain on your parade, but I wouldn’t have wanted to combine with someone else for my bachelorette…..that being said we went away for the weekend, and had some really personaly convos, etc..I just wouldn’t have felt comfortable doing that stuff with a bunch of people I just met.
I mean if it’s just to go out to the bar though, no biggie.

I don’t really see how it’s your MOH’s decision. You just need to speak up to her and tell her you like this idea and it’s what you want. It’s not her party.

Yeah, we pretty much just wanted to go out and eat at this restaurant that holds a nightly drag show and go to the gay bar (which also has really cute guys in their speedos dancing around 😉 ). And they had the same idea for the other bride also. And this other bride also doesn’t have too many friends either…

@raziel1687: Talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor about what her concerns are. Unless you talk to her, you’ll never know.
As an aside, I think you should move your bachelorette to a weeknight so your sister can attend. Surely getting your own sister to attend is more important than having it on a weekend.

@paula1248: Of course. I had texted her back, haven’t heard from her yet…
But if I plan for a weekday, then only my sister would attend LOL Probably not, because my sister has school weekdays, and everyone else works weekdays (and they also live an hour away from me). We’ll see…, there is still months ahead until this bachelorette party, so my sister could probably get someone to cover her shift for that night.

So my Maid/Matron of Honor was just concerned about me sharing the spotlight, which I told her that doesn’t matter to me. Because anytime I hang out with her, or the other two, I always and already the spotlight anyway. lol
