- Wedding: September 2011
YES! you read correctly! Planning MY bachelorette party!
My wedding is in September, I’ll be 22 this month. Unfortunately, I was the oldest in school so all of my girlfriends are younger than me. So not everyone is 21 yet. I’m a fun, let’s do shots and fist pump the night away, I’ll sleep when I’m dead kinda girl.
I love all of my friends, but when we get together I’m the one that pays the dinner bill, buys the alcohol and drives every where. And this makes me happy. I love taking care of people and not being taken care of. I have a cushion in my bank account (the only one that can work 40-50 hours a week and not complain because I love money. I like to think I work my ass off for what I have/do)
But my bachelorette party is a situation where I want to be taken care of. But I know that I will end up having to pay for everything and plan everything.
My fiance and I have been planning all of the wedding plans. We do not have MOH/BestMan. (that’s another story) 4 BMs 4 GMs.
The guys will be planning the bachelor party. (in Chicago, Indy, or Louisville) They’re all older with good jobs.
I feel like every time I bring up the bachelorette party my girls have no input whatsoever and if they do they want male strippers and dildo parties. I’ve been to a few toy parties, they’re fun, but nothing I want to do on my “last night out.” and I’ve done the whole male stripper bachelorette party.. definitely not for me.
I want a party bus to a club in the city (chicago or indy) with all of my friends being completely different ages I am having THE hardest time findng a club we can all get into. The party ranges from 20 to 30.
I had also talked about renting a cabin on a lake but am afraid I won’t feel like it’s my “last night out”
I am no bridezilla, but I am beginning to get frustrated because I feel like the only person that is helping me is my fiance (which I am super excited about) but I know he wishes that one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man was helping instead of him. He hears all these guys saying how they didn’t do anything for their wedding except write the checks.
Any of you bees have any suggestions/input?!? All the help would be GREATLY appreciated!! 🙂 <3
[sorry for the bitch fest, I’m beginning to get exhausted!]
