How to budget for a bachelorette party

Weddings and wedding festivities are exciting. However no one who’s deeply involved can deny the cost of the event is pretty high. While nothing compared to the wedding itself, throwing a bachelorette party is no small figure.

Fortunately, The Bachelorette Superstore has shared a handy infographic to tell us more about typical activities and average cost.

It may be a surprise to know that 6% of brides don’t have a bachelorette party. Be prepared to throw the bride a fun party though, since most do. A party can cost anywhere between $420 to $1800 depending on the activities. Per person, this comes out to $35 to $150. For comparison sake, a bridal shower costs $15-$40 per person. There’s an average of 12 women that attend the party.

If you were to go to Las Vegas, prepare for a spendy weekend. Booking a hotel room six months in advance can still fetch prices from $74-$550 per night. Not to mention airline tickets that can be up to $465. Meals cost anywhere between $30 to $60 per meal and drinks are $7 to $18 a piece. Then there’s entertainment, which can fetch prices of $180 per ticket.

Just be sure to keep a checklist and all the attendees well informed. Be very upfront about the costs of the activities so that anyone who can’t afford it will know ahead of time.
