Does my Maid of Honor Have to Plan my Bachelorette Party?

Dear Sugar,

I am getting married this summer and talk of my bachelorette party is starting to swirl. My maid of honor is my best friend from childhood. Our mothers have been best friends forever and we were both the only girls in our families, so we are more like sisters than friends-- she's the best! With that said, she isn't the biggest party animal. She likes to go out and have a good time, and she is always up for anything, but I want my bachelorette party to be WIlD, a weekend I will never forget.

I know the maid of honor is typically supposed to be in charge of planning the bachelorette party, but my question is does she have to? My other bridesmaids are much more wild like me and I fear that if my MOH plans it, I will be left disappointed. Do you have any advice for me to make sure my last weekend as a single girl will be fun without hurting my MOH's feelings? -- Ready to Party Penelope

Dear Ready to Party Penelope --

Wow, it sounds like you are ready to let your hair down and I don't blame you!! You're right, typically it is the maid of honor's job to plan the bachelorette party, but that rule is not set in stone. Although she might not be as wild and crazy as the rest of the girls, that doesn't necessarily mean she won't plan a wild and crazy bachelorette party for you. Since she is your best friend, chances are she knows what you want, so have faith in her party planning abilities. If you are really concerned and are still having doubts, talk to her and make sure you are on the same page.

If there is another girl in particular you wish could plan your party or someone who knows exactly what you want, perhaps suggesting they work together, or tell your other bridesmaid to relay your desires to your MOH without you even having to get involved. Your maid of honor will want you to have fun so don't be afraid to speak up. Your friends probably know you better than you think, so rest assured they have your best interests at heart. Good luck, be safe, and most importantly, have fun! Congratulations!
