So my Maid/Matron of Honor wants to do a desination bachelorette party. I love the idea but she doesn’t have a lot of money and insists on paying for me and I feel bad.
But as it turns out I have conference I need to go to for work that would take me out in that general area so my flight would be paid for. The only problem is that its in May and we’re not getting married till September.
Is that too early to be doing a bachelorette party?
I know you can really do whatever you want but I just didn’t know if it would be weird. I haven’t suggested it to her yet.

I’m having a destination wedding but on top of that I’d say probably 75% of the guests live in another state anyways. Because of this & the fact that my best friend is in school I’ll probably have mine during the summer (I’m getting married in September) just so that everyone will be able to come that wants to and it won’t be too close to the wedding so they have time to space out the money spending.

@mmcd1523: I think you can do the party whenever works best for everyone coming! That doesn’t sound too early to me at all.

I had a destination bachelorette and it was in April for my June wedding – definitely didn’t feel too early.

You have to think about the others who would be attending too, would they be able to have the money by May? Personally I think, 4 months ahead is a bit early

i dont think its too early at all! I am a bit biased… 🙂
I live in Arizona and am getting married in NJ in October. Is is 115 from June until October, so in order to beat the heat, I am having a bachlorette party the last week of April.
Ultimately it is totally up to you ENjoy!!!!!!!!!

Maybe don’t call it a ‘bachelorette’ but a ‘woohoo, I’m getting married let’s have a girls night out’ party? If the logistics come together as well as they seem to in May there’s no reason to travel all over again closer to the wedding I think. Be honest with your Maid/Matron of Honor and tell her you consider this your bachelorette and that you’re just very happy to have this opportunity to celebrate. Good luck!

I just had my bachelorette party at the beginning of January, cause my girls were all from out of town or teachers/students going back to school after Christmas break, and it just worked out the best. It felt early, but it was our only option….who’s gonna know anyway? It’s never to early to party! =)
