I’m usually out $200-$400 for a bachelorette party – the biggest chunk of the costs are room costs.  Either hotel or rented house.  Depending on how many nights and between how many people – that’s where it really adds up.

I would LOVE you if I only had to pay $40 for a hotel!!!!

Hahaha I was going to say about $250 (more if it was a destination party)… so no!  Under $100 per person is pretty darn cheap for a night out and a hotel stay.

It really depends in how much I am shelling out for the rest of the wedding.  For example if I had to pay for a flight/hotel stay as well as a significant amount for the bridal shower, plus dress etc I may be thinking in the $100 range.

If the wedding were local, then up to $300 would be  good for me.

$40 would be a fantastic bargain!

i would say $100 max. are there more girls you can invite? that would decrease the hotel cost for everyone if you’re worried about it.

I expect to spend about $200.

I think the fixed costs should be kept low like the hotel, but then the stuff like drinks doesnt matter much because the people can decide how much they want to drink themselves if they are conserving money.

Mine will not cost us more than the price of food and alcohol, because we’re having it at my MOH’s apartment.  Should be a blast, but very low-key!

Sounds like youre doing a great job keeping costs down.

The only one I have been to was in Boston and I spent about $400. This included hotel (room shared with 3 other girls), lunch, day activities, dinner, 2 bars (one included table service), t-shirts, and room/bride decorations. It was a lot of money but we did have fun.

That is SUPER cheap for a bach party!!! I would be totally thrilled…I understand that money is tight now a days but really if people knew in advance it was $40 they should have no complaints about spending that much! 🙂

We are renting a house in a really fun town.  My Maid/Matron of Honor is charging everyone 100 bucks for the weekend.  It will cover the lodging, snacks and some booze.  Plus we will be going to bars so everyone will be paying for that as well.  People don’t have to come if they think it’s too much but my girls dont seem to mind.  We are going to have a ball!  That’s what money is for!
