So, I'm the MOH in my best friend's wedding. She has lived out of state for the past 10 years or so, but we've remained close taking girls weekends together and talking often.
She has a clique of local friends where she's gone to all of their bachelorette parties and inviting them to hers, of course. The norm in their circle is for one person to book EVERYONE'S hotel on their one CC and then the other girls mail them a check before the party of the amount they owe. Some girls are local, so not everyone will need a hotel - it's not a destination bachelorette (only for me & her other bridesmaid who needs to travel!!).
I am not comfortable footing the bill for everyone and them mailing the check to me when I don't even personally know them. I'm just not comfortable with it and honestly I don't understand why they do it that way when they're all adults and should be able to figure out their own accommodations if they plan to drink THAT much.
Is it appropriate to just let them know where the bride & I are staying and advise that if they want a room - here's the link to the hotel?
Interested to see how others' arrange these! I've never planned one before.
