I am planning my best friend’s bachelorette party (I am not her MOH, just one of her BM). Her wedding is in April, but because of conflicts of bridesmaids living far away we were going to the party a little early, like January of February.
I have been working on the party and all the details for about 6 weeks. I have met with the bride-to-be about 8 separate times to work on the list and just some ideas to make sure she was okay with certain things. There was never once anything said about the date or her not liking it. We even emailed out to everyone that was invited to make sure that the date and the idea for the party would be okay and in good interest for everyone invited, and I was going to be sending out the formal invites after the New Year.
I received a slightly rude message last week that she wants to change the date to April since she ‘never wanted the party that early to begin with’. I found this to be a little irritating since I have already put so much time and effort into planning this. She spoke with 2 girls that are just invited to the party and that is what made her change her mind.
One of the other bridesmaids from out of town was not exactly thrilled either and made the decision to just keep it on the date we chose.
I am just kind of nervous of how the bride to be will react. It’s not exactly her place to try and control every aspect of the party, but it is in honor of her and I want her to be happy with it. I also wasn’t exactly thrilled about the idea of having a huge night out the night before Easter.
Just curious on anyone elses opinion on how this should be handled. Or just in general on the situation! Thanks!
