I’m paying for part of the limo for my bachelorette party and Maid/Matron of Honor is paying the rest.  I wouldn’t have been able to have one if I didn’t chip in for it  🙁

you booking it may have made her think she could pawn it off on you, but no, your not supposed to pay for that

A bachelorette party is supposed to be given by people who offer to do it, who then pay for it.  Among other things, this ensures that they only have a party they can afford to fund.  If you start booking things and then expecting them to pay, you’re going to have a problem.

Well, you aren’t really supposed to pay for your own bachelorette party (unless you’re flying out of town or something, then i believe in at least buying your own ticket) but since you took it upon yourself to book the limo, in the eyes of everyone else, you essentially assumed payment and control of that. Even if they agreed it was a good price and wanted one before, the fact that you booked it basically gives the impression you are paying for it.

This is news to me that I’m not suppose to pay for anything. We are going to Montreal for my bachelorette party (girls coming from Boston and NYC).

I got us a hotel using hotel points so everyone saved on that, but otherwise I budgeted money for the trip. I’m sure my friends will buy most of my drinks when we go out, but I wouldn’t expect them to pay for EVERYTHING.

You need to 1) talk to them and explain what you need from them and 2) don’t make any decisions or reservations because then you are just assuming they will pay for it and they may not…it’s kinda rude to expect them to pay if you are planning it.

I don’t think you should pay the whole bill!  My girls and I are going to Myrtle Beach for the weekend and I am paying my own way.  It made it more affordable for everyone so I don’t mind at all.  I’m just glad they all are going and spending the $ they are spending. I am so appreciative. 

But, they should at least split the bill with you!  Or at least offer!
