Don't want a Bachelorette Party- but probably getting one anyway
So here's the thing: My good friend who is going to be one of my bridesmaids (I'm not having an official MOH) wants to throw me a Bachelorette Party. She wanted to do a Bridal Shower, but my aunt was already doing one for me and the friend was a little put out that she couldn't do it. I'm a low-key kind of person and if I had to have anything resembling a Bachelorette Party, I would perfer to just go to someone's house and chill out with some snacks and maybe a little alcohol. I have had to reign my friend so much. She started off wanting to get a hotel (all my BMs are on budgets and i don't want to ask them to pay for that). and I had to talk her out of that. Then she was getting ready to move to a touristy area and I had an idea. I could get my party to go down to the shopping area of that town, window shop, and then go back to her appartement and chill! compromise! But now she wants everybody to pay to go to one of the (really expensive) shows. I have no interest in seeing any of the shows down there, and one BM has already raised concerns about the price. She also wanted to do all this The day before the Wedding- which I nixed but it took me months to get that through to her. I know I'm not supposed to plan my own party, but I feel like she is doing what she wants and not what I want and I'm having to plan it anyway in realing her in. She's also very sensitive and gets her feeling hurt easily when she's critisized. I guess I'm half venting and half asking if I should have a talk with her and tell her to just forget it, or try to real her in again or what?
