Bridesmaid vs. Bachelorette Weekend

Ok, so I'm going to need you ladies to share your opinions with me on this one. I was listening to  a bride and bridesmaid the other day discuss the below "situation". We all know money is tight right now in this lovely economy - - so, being a bride... would you rather your girlfriend be an actual bridesmaid and stand up for you on your big day - - or - - would you rather they participate in your bachelorette party weekend and simply be a guest @ your wedding?

vs.

To me this was a no brainier, but I have recently come to realize that I might be alone on this opinion.

Being a bridesmaid can be rather expensive. You have the dress, the shoes, hair and makeup the day of, most likely a mani/pedi will be in order, alterations for the dress, the bridal shower gift, the wedding gift - and those are just the basics. All those things can easily add up.  If you add a weekend getaway to that list for the bachelorette party- that could almost double the cost.

So, the conversation the ladies were having was the bride saying she would rather her girlfriend not be a bridesmaid and just attend the bachelorette weekend. She said those are where the "funner" memories will be made.

This is where you all come in. Do you feel that the bachelorette party weekend will be more memorable than your actual wedding? And if you have a bridesmaid who is tight on money and must choose - - would you rather her choose the weekend getaway? Let me know your thoughts?

Happy Wedding Planning!

Bachelorette Parties w your Bridesmaids

So - what is your idea of how a bachelorette party should go? I feel like there are two roads you can take.

1) Vegas Style! This is a weekend that will no doubt be hard to forget (assuming you can actually remember it). Fabulous dresses packed- 20's cashed in for1's - cell phones turned to silent - cameras charged and ready - human decorations to match each outfit and of course tickets purchased for those "special" shows. The nights start LATE and the mornings are hardly actually seen. You wake up hung-over, crawl down to the amazing buffet and stare at whoever is sitting across from you with a look of  "please kill me know"! Once you regain consciousness - the camera creeps out and the re-hashing beings. The whole day is spent trying to remember what actually happened and who it happened with (or to). Your stomach hurts from laughing so hard and you are literally crying the pictures are so funny! When the weekend finally comes to an end, you are all in need of a vacation from your vacation!

2) Girls Weekend! I'm thinking cabin, beach house or resort somewhere out of town with all your bridesmaids and close girl family members. You spend the weekend cooking, gabbing, drinking wine, shopping, lunching, drinking wine, watching romantic movies, laying by the pool, taking advantage of the spa, drinking wine and of course Girl Talk! This weekend is spent with those closest to you telling "remember when" stories while laughing so hard you are forced to cry. Old picture books are pulled out and no doubt the happy tears being. The girls that are married tell you all about the good times you have to look forward to and the girls that are single gush @ how happy they are for you (while secretly wishing they were in your shoes). It's a calm weekend full of memories and reminiscing .

Either way you decide to spend your last "single" weekend - make sure you are surrounded by the people you love the most. That is where the best memories come from!

Congratulations Twirl Brides! We are so excited for you and your new adventure! We hope your Bachelorette party is a weekend you will never forget!
