I’d say whoever is organizing it, not the bride (if that’s you) email everyone and ask. If the bride doesn’t ask then it doesn’t matter and if someone can’t afford it they don’t have to ride in the limo right? I don’t think I would be offend if I got a casual email saying hey ladies we were thinking of doing this who’s interested kind of thing, ya know make it more casual so no one feels like they have to.

If I was going to a bachelorette party that employed limos, as a guest aka friend of the bride, I wouldn’t be put off if I was told hey anyone who wants in on the limo let me know and I’ll book it for those who want in. I wouldn’t EXPECT a free limo ride. But then again that’s just me.

send out an email (have the Maid/Matron of Honor do it) with a “hey if you’re coming, chip in $30 for transportation and drinks!” since you can bring your own drinks on the limo, i’d think about picking up a few bottles at Sam’s for everyone and charging a fee that covers it all. We just paid $30 for the last bachelorette party i went to. the invitation had a flyer with $30 fee and it included transportation and drinks. I never thought “how rude, there’s a fee!” i thought “shoot, what a deal!!!”

I agree that the organizer should just send out a casual email.  I wouldn’t make it be the end of the world if someone can’t afford it though.
