I am sorry to hear that! That really sucks. I do hope everything turns out for the best for you.

My sister’s Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t tell anyone the bachelorette plans till the day before – THE DAY BEFORE. I was pretty irked, but my sister could have cared less, those who showed, showed and everyone still had a nice time.

If that’s typically her planning style I’d take several deep breaths , then several more, since I know I’d be massivley stressed about it.  If this is just how she is though, you might just have to try and let it go. le sigh. Depending on other people to get things done is rarely fun. 🙁  Hopefully she’ll get it together and make a plan (and tell everyone about it).  Good luck!

This would majorly stress me out too.  My BM’s planned my bachelorette party but it didn’t go off without a hitch, and it wasn’t really my style and it stressed me out!

Hopefully they will pick a new place, send out email/phone call invitations and get it all set for you.  I wouldn’t worry too much!  I’m sure you’re plenty stressed as it is!

I think there are far more worse situations out there.  At least she DID try to plan something!

I feel you though, it’s almost like she’s doing a half-*ssed job and that doesn’t look so good on the outside.  I hope things do work out in the end – maybe you’ll be surprised!

As a type-A planner, it drives me nuts to sit back and watch other people fail to plan adequately. I feel your pain. 🙂 Try to breathe and remember that nobody is going to judge you for the bachelorette party and it’ll be fun since your good friends will be celebrating with you.

that sucks — I’m sorry your frustrated.

But look at it this way, people usually don’t make reservation until (at most) 2 weeks before, so 1 1/2 weeks before your b-party and she calls doesn’t really seem like laziness. Plus its not her fault they don’t take reservations for under 30 people. i’d say try to grin and bear it, I’m sure your girls will figure something out!

Would it be possible to send out invitations soon (today) and indicate a meeting place for everyone? For example, could everyone meet in a parking garage on the first floor, or a parking lot.  If you indicated that this was the meeting location and then dinner, drinks, and debauchery – it would still give you 10 days to decide where you’re going and even if it was last minute, the guests wouldn’t know

Ooh, pvaulter, that’s a good idea.

I was going to say something similar – could you agree to meet for drinks at a set location, and then head out to dinner after? Better yet if the place you wanted has a bar attached, then you can start the night out with drinks there while you wait for a table.

Trust me I know where you’re coming from! I’m still having a horrible time with mine! I tried to get them all together to see what they expect from me and what I expect from them and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man totally took over showing picts and video clippes of her new boyfriend. But I’m not saying this idea wont work for you, give it a try and show a little bit of your bridezilla.

In fact i may try it again lol.

but best of luck! I’m sure things will work them selves out!!!
