My best friend since I was 2 is getting married in September. DH is also in the wedding party, mainly as an extension to me and the groom does not have many close friends. The best man is on the other side of the country, and the other groomsmen are also SOs bridesmaids, and DH is his closest friend out of these. Last night, the groom texts DH and asks if he will plan his bachelor party. He wants it the same night as brides bachelorette (in 2 weeks), and said to just invite the same people that were invited to DHs bachelor party (who I'm not sure are all invited to the wedding).
We are the people in the group that usually organize the get togethers, and kind of the connection between all the friends in our group, so I understand why it would make sense to ask him. However, there are the issues stated above, and we've already spent well over $500 on this wedding/related events, and can't afford to finance this party too. It is doubtful that others would be willing to chip in, as most are more mine/DH/brides friends than grooms. I do feel bad that he may not have a bachelor party otherwise, but at this point, DH doesn't have the time or money to actually plan this. I feel like this would've been the perfect situation for the groom to just say "having a guys night out" and not call it a bachelor party.
I am also worried at saying no will cause the bride to be angry at me, as though I love her, she has been a little crazy about the wedding process. Ideas on how to either redirect into a "guys night out", or plan a bachelor party with little to no money?
