Subject: Is it okay to ask the groom to pay for his bachelor party flight?
There are 8 of us in the wedding party and we decided to take the groom to Vegas for his bachelor party.
We booked a hotel and agreed to pick up the groom's share and I'm sure we'll end up paying for a significant number of his dances as well. Now a couple of the groomsman are balking at the idea of splitting his airfare (~$500) and think he should pick it up.
At first instinct I thought there was no question we should pick up the groom's flight - it's was our idea to throw the bachelor party in Vegas. But a couple other groomsmen countered by saying the groom had us buy suits instead of rent tuxes (which set us back $300) for the wedding and between the hotel rooms/wedding gifts/other activities we shouldn't feel bad having the groom pick up his own flight.
If it matters, all of us have jobs and are between 24-28. I'm on the fence - what's your call?
