Bachelorette Party Etiquette: Who Pays for the Entire Party?

Q: Should the MOH have to foot the bill for the entire bachelorette party? Should the bridal party pay for the bachelorette party?

A: With the exception of everyone paying for the bride, there are no set rules as to who pays for the rest of the bachelorette party. Usually, unless the bridesmaids are Paris Hilton, each guest pays for themselves and chips in evenly for the bride. This means each guest would be responsible for their own drinks, food, hotel room, etc, regardless if the guests are related to the bride or in the bridal party.

Make sure to let guests know in advance if the bachelorette party will be more expensive or if there are other charges. Ex. If the cover charge for the club is $30, let guests know that. If you're going to a spa and getting a package done for $250, let the guests know so they can make a financial decision about whether to go or not.
