(excuse grammatical errors as I’m just getting to know my iPad mini)
i’m planning my (only and younger) sister’s bachelorette party, as one of many Maid/Matron of Honor duties. I knows cost is a hot topic and I’d like some input.
my sister livers in Atlanta, I live in LA, and 2/3 of her intended bridesmaids live at least 350 miles away from her. So, our only option is a full bachelorette weekend.
my sister has expresses concerns that the cost of participating in the wedding might be a strain on multiple bridesmaids, so I’ve tried to tone down my ambitions, lol! With that in mind, I’ve abandoned the original idea, which was a Vegas trip.
i’ve instead come up with the following idea, in short:
night one will be a slumber party at my sister’s place, with Maggiano’s carry out (she loves Italian food), greasy male stripper, and good old boozing;
night two is out on the town with mani/pedis by day, hotel suite and bottle service at a club by night.
I added up the major costs (hotel suite, bottle service, some food/alcohol, stripper) And it came to about $300/bridesmaid. That doesn’t include getting to ATL or any individual costs.
is this reasonable? I recently spent over triple that for my bff’s bachelorette party, so I know my perspective might need adjusting, lol!
i don’t want to alienate any of the other girls, but I don’t want to shortchange my sister’s experience, either.
thoughts? Thanks for reading this terribly long post. Phew!
