SnapGrr:  Your sister will have a brilliant time and will apprciate all that you have done to arrange her hen do. Dinner and a club sounds nice. It doesn’t matter that all 50 people won’t be going. Try to think on the bright side, less people = logistically easier to manage, less stressful, your sister will be able to spend quality time with those who have been invited instead of breif conversaitons with 50 people. I am sure there will be fun had by all and fun stories to share afterwards.

It is nice that you care so much and want her to have a great time but try not to stress. You are doing a great job. Good job her “BF” isn’t her Maid/Matron of Honor – she sounds like a total douche.

SnapGrr:  You are doing awesome and I am sure she’ll love it! If she doesn’t know 50 people were invited she’ll probably be thrilled by the people who are there.

Wow that “best friend” would not qualify to that title if I were your sister… I have a similar problem in choosing my Maid/Matron of Honor as I know if I choose my best friend, my sister will rage and threaten me to not choose me come to her own wedding, but if I choose my sister, she’ll be a total control freak over the wedding or smth and my best friend will be hurt cause she doesn’t have any sister of her own to be Maid/Matron of Honor one day…!!! So, I think your sister is REALLY lucky to have you and I wish my sister would be so caring : ) and btw it’s awesome you could invite 50 ppl in the first place, I think my Maid/Matron of Honor will have a hard time inviting even 10 ppl at all, but I do believe a smaller group is better as it is more intimate and less hassle!! Try to not stress out too much, like you said, it’s not your wedding but your sister’s so you don’t have to feel all the pressure!!!

SnapGrr:  She’s going to have a great time! Honestly, I would SO rather go out with a group of 10. 50 people is too many, anyway! 10 is way more fun and everyone feels like they were really a part of the day. Your sister’s friends sound VERY immature — it’s probably a good thing some aren’t coming. She will probably have MORE fun without them!!

Some best friend! My best friend has pretty much always known that my sister would be Maid/Matron of Honor. And I know if my best friend ever gets married, I will be her Maid/Matron of Honor. She was definitely a little disappointed, but she took it really well and did an amazing job as a bridesmaid. She knew that while we have been friends for a while, my sister has ALWAYS been my best friend. I couldn’t imagine not asking her. My best friend and my sister planned all of the pre-wedding events together.

I agree with PPs saying that 10 is a way better group anyway! I had a pretty small bachelorette, and I was also REALLY sick for it (a really wicked cold, lost my voice), and I still had a great time. It was nice to be able to chat with a small group of great girls, mostly family and a couple friends.

You are being a wonderful sister and a fabulous MoH!! She will have a wonderful time because it was a party planned by someone who loves her and wants to make it special. That’s what she will remember–it sounds like it will be an intimate party at her fav place with her fav people who want to be there with her. 🙂
