I’ve given my MOHs some ideas, but FH also suggested he would like to do a joint party so we’ll see. I’m sure there will be surprises, I just have to not be a control freak! My MOH wanted to be a party planner when she was younger, so I’ll just have to trust her.

I think it’s fine to plan your own, people tend to frown upon planning your own gift getting parties like showers. My other concern would be budgeting, my MOH told me if they all decide Vegas they’re covering me, but if I decided I wanted to go to Vegas I would fully expect to pay my own flight and cover the hotel room. Just like with dresses and stuff, if there are people you want to be there make sure the budget works. I look at it this way though, you’re planning the whole wedding, the bachelorette is meant to be a celebration for you that you can just go to and have a good time.
My fiancé and I plan on planning our own. Mainly because we don’t want to burden anyone with another bill, as all of our friends have children and obligations. We are asking them to rent/buy their attire for the wedding. So that was more than enough in my book. Some are also coming from out of town as well, so that plays a part as well. The other reason being im just extra & have so many ideas I want to do lol. I just want it to be as perfect as can be and everyone enjoy their time. Don’t bust your brain on it go with your heart! I’m sure they won’t be mad and will still enjoy being apart of the process. ❤️
I’ve been a part of planning the location and the date. That is all. They have mentioned some things we may do, but I’m not sure what has actually been planned. We are going to Savannah, GA for a long weekend.
I was just MOH for my best friend and I think I’m going to follow her lead as well. She told me where(Las Vegas) and what she wanted which was a nice restaurant, a show and a spa morning. I did the rest by picking out the restaurants, shows and planned the itinerary of when it would all take place.
Mine is a surprise. I've given guidelines, which most of my party seems to be following? (My bridesman apparently wants to do multiple parties, which I am pushing back on. I'm grateful, but... I can't take every day off work between now and the wedding!)
I asked for a ballgame, or the Ren Faire, or a Broadway show.
Two of our party already took us to a special ballgame where FH's favorite player retired, and I happen to know what FH's is this weekend (well, I know the TYPE of thing it is), so I think mine might be a Broadway show?
