Bachelorette trip - expenses

Lori, on June 3, 2024 at 5:35 PM Posted in Etiquette and Advice 0 5
So I am the mother of the bride. I am helping the maid of honor with the bachelorette trip. We will be going out of town for three nights to Fredericksburg in Texas. We are also taking a party bus trip. My question is if I invite a friend of mine that is agreeable to the bride should I ask her to pay for her portion of the house rental and bus trip? Or because I’ve asked her to go should I cover her expenses . Right now the cost of the trip is a total of 250 per person that covers the house rental and bus trip. I realize 250 may not be a lot but after paying for the entire wedding, I’m spent ! Thanks!!

    Is this additional person invited to the wedding? The bachelorette party (as well as any pre wedding party) is not something that is open invitation for other people that the bride is not super close to. People should not be invited to any pre wedding party if they are not invited to the wedding day. Personally I’m of the opinion that it’s not appropriate to ask this friend to accompany you. Have a trip together at a separate unrelated date

    Btw for a destination bachelorette trip at $250/pp, you are getting a steal because that doesn’t begin to cover airfare alone for some.

    It sounds as though this is a friend of yours, not a friend of the bride? If that’s the case, then I would offer to cover her portion of the trip; as she is not really invited to the bachelorette party, she is moreso being invited to keep you company.

    I'm confused why the mother of the bride yet alone one of your friends is planning on attending a bachelorette party. This is something fun for the bride. Not a vacation for you and your friend.

    I don't think it's wrong to ask your friend to pay, but then the decision is theirs on attending or not. "If you want to join me and Daughter in Fredericksburg, we'd love to have you. The shared costs amount to $250."
