*not sure where to post this. mods, move it necessary*
My old college roommate Nicole is getting married at the end of October. I'm super happy for her! Where there is a wedding, there is a shower and bachelorette party.
I got an invitation to Nicole's shower in September. It's hosted by one of Nicole's bridesmaids Rachel. I've meet Rachel several years ago at a weekend long festival. She was very nice and we got along well.
The shower is approximatly 2 hours south from my house. The bachelorette party will be after the shower on the same day in a town even further south in my state. So I will be 4 hours from home at the time of the bachelorette party.
The invitation for the bachelorette party was a bit vague. Rachel only put that we would be going out on the town to celebrate for Nicole. No indication where we were staying, transporation, etc.
I contacted Rachel and asked her what the plan was. She was very vague and asked me what we should do.
Then I heard through the grapevine Rachel had thought about having everyone stay at her place. I don't know how big Rachel's place is.
Here's my issue. I can't sleep on floors. Even with blankets and such, I'm a mess the next day. I don't want to be a diva, but after a long night of bachelorette partying, sleeping on a floor and a 4 hour ride home would make for one cranky JG. Noooo one needs that. I don't know how many people are coming. Rachel's attitude is "we'll just figure it out". Thats great, but I might need to make arrangements ahead of time.
I do not want to cause waves. I want to go with the flow. I am more than happy to get a hotel room. A few of my other friends going said they would go in with me for the room. Is there a polite way I can communicate this to Rachel without looking like a diva princess??
