    Who Pays for Bachelorette Party?

    I have to say I agree w/ Angela. I think you need to just let your girls do what they want to for you. They're trying to do something nice and although you feel you're being helpful by offering money, it's borderline insulting. It would be like offering to pay them back for the wedding gift, b-day gift etc that they bought you. You have good intentions, not wanting to put them out but really, it's their thing. You're supposed to sit back and enjoy!! And of course return the favor if/when one of them gets married! You wouldn't want your friend's to pay for their own bach party...why do you think they would want you to? All that being said, I did keep attempting to buy rounds of drinks for everyone at my bach party...I got shut down every time though! lol! So I understand what you're saying...and maybe you can talk them into letting you buy a round of drinks or shots as a "thank you" for the great party. :-)

  7. Quote: If your crowd would be cool without hard liquor then the hell with it, have wine & beer and a cash bar for the hard stuff. My crowd was more interested in the hard stuff but it's about you and your guests. That's pretty much what I was going to say. You know your guests, and if they're the types that are happy to drink beer and wine then I say leave it at that. We had to do beer/wine only at my wedding 'cause the venue we used had VERY strict rules re: liquor. And honestly I think everyone was totally fine w/ it. Everyone was drinking, mingling and having a good time. My take on the mai tai or rum punch option is this: If you're having to purchase a set amount in advance, that's tricky 'cause you run a pretty good chance of either running out 'cause you didn't estimate high enough, or paying for leftover gallons that you didn't use. Also, I'm always leery of punches and stuff like that that are mixed in advance...I swear half the time they don't put any alcohol in them and it's just juice! And that would be seriously aggravating at $85-95 per gallon! So yeah, to wrap up, I think the beer/wine bar would be great and keep everyone happy. And if you do just beers and wines would that allow you a little flexibility to choose additional wines or something? (just an idea...) If you really want a fun cocktail, how about doing the signature drink (mai tai etc) for the cocktail hour and the remainder of the night could be the beer/wine bar? I mean, if guest are only going to have access to one liquor drink anyway I don't think it's a big deal to limit it to one portion of the evening...since you'd still be supplying them w/ drinks the rest of the night. No matter what you decide - you guys are going to have a blast!!!
  8. Kat! You have to go to my salon...it may well be the one that Calia is referring to since it's on Preston between Parker and Spring Creek. It's in Plano, not sure if that's too out of the way, but they are amazing!!! I use Rena (pronounced Reh-na) or Liz is great too. The salon is called Luxe and their number is: 972-781-1720 And honestly, if you can't get in w either Rena or Liz, I would trust any one of them. I've been going there for a few years and think they all do great work. Side note...if you end up there, go to the Sea Breeze restaurant a couple shops down...order the fish tacos and bliss out....they are SOOOOOO good!! lol! I crave them all the time!
  9. Awww! You girls are adorable!! I'm so glad you all had a great time....and posted lots of pics! lol! Random: I don't remember if I've seen your hair done that way (short and curled) before Amy...it's SO cute!!
