Most likely, they will have to pay for their air travel, hotel, rental car, food and gifts. Consider combining the two parties on the same weekend or day, such as an afternoon of pampering with your girlfriends followed by a coed dinner party or barbecue.
Today, with social media posts traveling faster than the speed of light, the last thing a bride wants is to find a less than flattering photo of herself on Facebook tucking money in some guy’s g-string.
Whatever you plan, try and have it at least two weeks before your wedding. Avoid planning anything too close to the wedding day, so you don’t end-up with bags under your eyes or feeling hung-over.
If you want to keep costs down, think about a DIY dinner party at home with your favorite table decor and a lot of pretty votives to add ambiance. If the budget permits, have it catered or order from your regular take-out place. If you don’t have the time to plan a party at home, then book the dinner at your favorite Mexican restaurant with a limited bar consisting of beer, wine and Sangria.
