Hey y'all so I need help with tips / opinions.
Long story short, I decided to plan my own batchelorette party since all 7 of my bridesmaids and maid of honor kind of dropped the ball on offering to help make plans.I'm a stay at home mom and feel like I need a night with the girls. I honestly don't mind, but I'm stuck covering for my maid of honors weekend (she's a single mother of 3 and I just wanted her to have a fun time without having to worry).
Anywho. All the girls knew 2 months ago about set plans to happen in 6 weeks from now. A girls weekend trip out of town, I would drive and I told them maximum $130/pp for their stay. All was a go! I had everything ready to book through my Aunt who can score us unbelievable nightly rates for a hotel she works for, she just had to book in my cousins name to get the family discount. (Has to be immediate family) So I called my cousin just to verify eveything and ask if she was cool using her name for her mom to book for us and we would pay upon arrival and she told me she forgot about my bachelorette party and already booked tickets to Florida for her and her BF the same weekend. All of the girls were planning to go said weekend for months and we just can't afford it without the discount. Even Air BNBS are off the charts for all of us and no other weekend leading up to the wedding will work. Do I just give up the stress of coordinating my own party?! I already have a million things on my plate and am about to just call it a wrap. Helpppp!
