If you're recently engaged, you're likely daunted by all the events you're expected to plan—and that's not even counting the wedding. We're here to answer all your pressing engagement party, bridal shower, and bachelorette party etiquette questions.
I want a bachelorette weekend in Vegas, but the bridesmaids say they can't afford it. How do I get them to pony up?
First, this isn't your event to plan—your maid of honor and bridesmaids do that. Second, unless that kind of bachelorette party is routine in your crowd, you're out of line. What you can do is suggest a Vegas-style "getaway" closer to home. You could book a couple of local hotel rooms, get dressed up, rent a limo and go out for drinks and dinner. Vegas is also great for a honeymoon, so put your chips in that basket instead.
