👠 RSVP for the days you're attending
By subscribing to this plan, the date is already on your calendar, yay! Put in a PTO request if you need to take days off of work. But make sure the organizers know what day you plan on arriving/departing and if you plan to participate in all the activities.

👠 Budget accordingly
Money is always a tricky subject on bachelorettes and something that attendees can understandably get uncomfortable about once the bill lands. Get ahead of the awkwardness by asking the organizers for an expected all-in cost. If their projected cost is not in your budget, speak up and offer some alternatives that are more wallet friendly.
