How Tacky is this???

Recommended Posts

I am so sorry that youâ€re going through this. I am planning my bacheloret party and I am so excited. I wanted to make sure that the whole thing is crazy fun and off the hook. I will take any advise or ideas from my girls, but I would like the finally say so. You might want to throw some ideas out via email to your friends and that way you donâ€t feel like your doing all the planning or hire a party planner! Either way I hope you the best.

I'm so glad I posted this! I thought it was this big awful thing to plan my own party, but I don't feel nearly as strongly about it now, especially when I read posts from others that have done it for themselves too!!
As Tammy said, this way I get to have the night exactly as I would want it. And I'm sure once everyone gets caught up in talking about that night, friends will suggest plans and different ideas for us.
Cool, I'm not really dreading this anymore - I'm totally excited!!!!

This is my same situation!! But I feel the same way you do now - I am planning my own! It is super fun - another reason to get together with everyone. I mean seriously we only get married once (well for now lol) so don't we at least deserve a big bash!! OF COURSE WE DO!!

I get that people are superbusy, I am a lawyer and work crazy hours and never have time to do anything but if my best friend was getting married I would make the time to plan her stagette. I'm sorry that you feel upset but I think you should take Jill's advice and just plan a get together so you won't feel embarrased for planning your own (although I feel there is nothing to be embarrased by). It sounds like it could be tons of fun and this way you get to end up doing whatever you want and don't get stuck doing something sucky. LOL. Good luck with the planning and let us know if you need help with anything.

FH and I are planning a combined bachelor/bachellerte party. It never occured to me to feel weird about planning it. Maybe because I'm not doing anything traditional. I'm having a DW, I'm not having any wedding shower and I'm not getting my bridal party to help out. What does make me feel weird though is that the bachelor/bachelorette party will be most of FH's friends. I'm relatively new to this city, don't know too many people and my MOH does not live here.

Hmm- how hard is it to send out an evite? It takes like 20 minutes top---- that is not super cool of your friend...

I'll end up planning mine- I'm kinda the "party planner" of the crew- and I'm thinking I would just like the girls to have a weekend at the beach in late April- so I'm planning on organizing it and it'll be a laying out/drinking/shopping weekend-- at least this way- you'll have it the way you want too!! :):)

I sort of started planning my own bachelorette party. It was one of those things where we all talked about it, but no one stepped up and offered to plan. So I started planning and mentioned to a friend at a party that I had started looking for hotels, limos, etc. and she volunteered to take over. Now all I have to do is send her my invite list!

Ok, I gotta say that I'm not really buying your friends excuse. I work 12 hour days everyday, go home to cook, do laundry, run errands, etc.... and even I could find the time to at least ask for a guest list of email addresses and email an invitation to a restaurant/bar. At the minimum, I guess that's what I'd do in her shoes.

 

Now, the other side of it, is that if she isn't your MOH anymore, then traditionally it really isn't her responsibility. Would that stop me from doing this for my best friend? nope, I'd still do it.

 

Last, I agree with everyone else. there are a lot of "pros" to planning this yourself. You'll have ultimate say in the who/where/when of it, which is a really nice thing. And, you'll still get to spend the evening celebrating with your friends.

 

If I were in your shoes, I'd plan the thing myself, invite all the people I want there. But I'd probably be pissed off enough to take it one step further and NOT invite the former MOH.... if she's too busy to plan, then it's a given that she'd be too busy to attend. (Spoken from the passive-agressive side of me!)

Everyone is right. Plan it yourself. You don't have to go over the top - just start with dinner and a place for after, and tell your crew. The girls will pick it up and run with it.

I really don't understand what the hang-up is about planning our own bachlorette party? I mean its a party for those women that are closest to you to celebrate with you and have a fun time. Isn't that what a wedding is (plus the men of course).

No one has any problems planning their own wedding so why would there be an issue planning your own bachlorette party?

 

You are asking for nothing of people but to go out and have a great time with you, no one will think anything of it. And this way you get to do what you want to do instead of someone else's idea of what your good time is.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
