Bachlorette Party Costs
Posted 16 April 2008 - 12:04 PM
I've never been to a bachlorette party. How much do people usually spend when they go out for these? Its looking like $50 for limo/bus, $50 for dinner, and then whatever at the bar. Is this too much for people to spend? The girls are thinking of cancelling out the limo, but I don't want people to drink and drive.

EDIT- I didnt' mean to hit submit yet. oops.
I think it was $800 for 6.5 hours or something close to that. We called LOTS of places too. This one had the best deal BY FAR. Most were roughly $150 per hour for a stretch hummer or similar.
Another thing to ask is if they include a 20% gratuity in the price you are quoted. Ours didn't but we tipped probably that amount anyways. Everyone tipped at least $10-20 per person. Our driver was awesome and loved us. He kept the divider down and just watched all the fun.

The plus of having some form of transportation (party bus, limo, etc) is that we got to drink the whole way to the bar. It was about an hour trip for us too. We didn't have to buy a lot of drinks at the bar so immediately it kinda was worth the money for the bus.

If it's a chill type bar, do you think they will still drink like crazy? If so, that's the only reason I would say a limo would be a good idea. I don't really drink much at chill bars because I pass out easily. If I'm not moving when I'm drinking, then I'm out. That's just me though.
Ultimately, I think it's safe to plan ahead so no one has to be the DD if no one wants to drive. Also, you don't risk people driving drunk- that's something I can't tolerate. No excuse in my book so I like to always have a good game plan before going out so my friends don't do that.

For those people who don't want to spend much, will there be a way to spend less? I don't think 100$ per person is that bad, but there should be flexibility so that people who are cheap and want to spend less can (i.e. skip out the limo, choose a cheaper menu item, and not drink too much and the whole night costs them like 40-50$). If it's going to be over 100$ per person for sure (i.e. no way to spend less than that) then I would talk to each person to make sure they are okay with the plans.
My friends recently rented a limo for a bach party. It got really expensive for some girls because some people didn't show up or never paid. If you have someone who wouldn't be drinking, you could have them be a DD. Maybe pay for their gas or dinner in exchange for dropping everyone off.
My bachelorette party was just at a friends house. Guests brought snacks & drinks. We had a blast & it was cheap.
