    My husband went to Vegas with 6 friends for 3 nights.  I know the cost per person was well over $500, probably nearing $1000 when it comes to gambling money.  If they all want to do it and can do it, it’s more of an excuse for a guys weekend than anything else.  If you have other fears about the bach party, make them known.


    You can’t tell other people how to spend their money, and I’d hope if they have issues with the cost, that they’d make them known.  You can tell your Fiance that you think it’s excessive, but if you aren’t paying for anything, it’s ultimately not up to you, and not something I’d put a lot of energy into.


    FWIW, I’d much rather have had my Darling Husband go RVg and tailgating than to titty bars and gambling in LV, haha!

    Just tell your Fiance if he’s fine with this, he shouldn’t be offended if people can’t afford it. My FI’s friends are all young and child free so they’ll probably all want to do a big weekend. My friends will probably just do one night.

    @MrsPhilly:  FWIW = for what it’s worth

    Just make sure you share your concern about the money and move on.  It sucks, but guys sometimes like to spend their money on (what we think is) stupid stuff, right?

    Yeah, I think it’s very expensive, but it’s their party and they should be adult enough to voice their concerns to the person planning the party.

    I think it’s none of your business, TBH.  It’s between your Fiance and his Best Man.  Let them work it out.  If people can’t afford it, the price will increase to a point where the rest of the people who could have afforded $500 wouldn’t be able to afford the new higher price.

    It’s pricey but it’s not comletely outrageous if everyone is onboard or if your Fiance understands that some might not be able to make it because of $ issues.  They’re adults and can make their own decisions about how they spend their money, I don’t think you really have any say in it (providing he’s not doing anything inappropriate).  If you’re uncomfortable about strippers I think you have a right there…but as far as $ I’d say you shouldn’t worry about it.

    We’re spending $500 each on hotel/airfare to go to Vegas for mine but it’s what people want to do.  Some people can’t make it and that is okay.  But it’s not just a bachelorette party, it’s a mini vacation with some of my best friends.  I’d imagine your FI/BIL looks at it the same way.
