Isn’t the whole point of the bachelorette party to celebrate her? Maybe you guys can still go as a vacation for friends but still throw her another bachelorette party?

Did he know that you booked this party when she got engaged? If it wasn’t a surprise that you were all going on this trip I would say it’s okay to still go without her and then maybe do something simple for her when you get back. It’s not your fault she got pregnant.

You can go on a trip with friends to South America but its strange to keep calling this a bachelorette party when the bachelorette won’t be there. Are you planning to do anything local for her or some other type of party?

It’s not really a bachelorette party without the bride….

Oh that’s rough. On one hand, you don’t want to celebrate without her (of course!) but on the other….those tickets probably weren’t cheap. I would personally still go as a friends vacay and then throw her a bachelorette back at home. 


(As an add-on comment: DO NOT go there and then call it her bachelorette party. She’s not able to be there, and that’s not fair to her either.)

Has anyone seen Bachelorette? Brilliant movie. Basically at one point, they offend the bride and she storms away and they’re like “Well what do you call a bachelorette party without the bachelorette?” and the hot mess girl says “…Friday?”

Absolutely still go on the trip, but it’s no longer a bachelorette party.

issa7ee :  Yeah sure. Just take a girls trip. I hate paying for trips im not taking. Then take your friend to lunch and pedicures or something for her pregs “bachelorette party”.

Can you not switch the tickets to another destination?

I’d feel like actual shit going on a bachelorette trip without the bride.

if there is no way of refunding or changing the tickets to a different destination, i’d say go! just don’t call it a bachelorette party, since there is no bride – just call it a trip! LOL.

but don’t forget to throw the bride an actual bachelorette party that is fitting for her and her condition!:)
