All my BMs and I live in different cities. No seriously, not one lives in the same city. For the Bachelorette Party, they gave me a bunch of locations and then we narrowed it down to two and they voted on it. The end result is Orlando.
Orlando is expensive. Like really expensive. I’d like to cover at least my half of the room for the weekend and my own park tickets. My bridesmaids are the type to do everything by the book but I’m sure they’d appreciate not having to pay for me.
How do I approach this without seeming ungrateful/rude? I don’t want to step on their toes, but I don’t think they should have to cover those things. Thoughts?

@orangeroses29: Yes Orlando is pricey mostly because of the higher tax associated with the theme parks.
Maybe just offer to cover the hotel room or a rental house and then everyone else can pay for everything? I think this way it sorta gives back to all the BM’s and sets reciprocity.
Orlando IS A BLAST have fun!

I don’t think it would be rude to chip in at all, even if its not “by the book”. It sounds like it would be a large amount of money for your bms to front, I’m sure they would appreciate it.

I was just in Orlando this past weekend at Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival, then Downtown Disney on Sunday.
I don’t think there would be anything wrong with you wanting to pay for yourself.

Thanks guys! I’m just wondering how to phrase it so I don’t hurt their feelings.
