- Wedding: September 2009
My party is this next Saturday. My cousin Maid/Matron of Honor was supposed to plan it. But she doesn’t have a credit card so I had to reserve all the hotel rooms on my card. She was supposed to email people to tell them the cost of the rooms but never did, even though I asked her to many times last week. So now last night a bunch of people were emailing everyone saying they hadn’t heard anything and that they couldn’t afford rooms anymore so that they were going to not stay in a room now. Then they asked if other people could leave with them and not stay in rooms too because they don’t want to drive out of the downtown of our big city at night alone.
So now I’ve got all these people who are saying the rooms are too expensive and are leaving. Then I get an email from my aunt who says she could just pick her daughter up from downtown because her daughter was having a hard time budgeting for the room. Then she puts a comment in there about how this whole thing is getting a “little crazy”.
It’s not like I forced them to stay in the room or anything. I thought it would be a convenience so that everyone could drink and have fun. The rooms were only $59/person, a price that I don’t think is too high for a downtown room on a Saturday night.
It just pisses me off. I’ve spent 100’s of dollars on peoples bachelorette party’s in the past and even spent $800 flying to a cousin’s wedding last year. Now when it comes time for me to have my party they all have to be mean about it and complain. I’m getting tired of hearing about the complaining and them saying that my party is getting out of hand. Dinner and drinks at bars downtwon doesn’t seem that out of hand to me. It’s not like this is a vegas bachelorette party or a party where we take dance lessons, rent a limo, go to a winery, on a private boat, or anything like that!
At least I still have 3 friends who are coming to the party and haven’t complained about it yet. But the fact that everyone else is upset about the cost and complaining really puts a damper on the whole weekend for me.
I just wish they would make up their minds soon too so that I can cancel the extra hotel rooms and avoid being charged for them. The fact that I had to reserve them in the first place for my own bachelorette party is ridiculous!
Advice for future brides – if you don’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor or friend who is willing to plan the whole thing then don’t have one! It sucks to have to plan so much of your party and then have people bitch about it!
