bachelorette party weirdness

This weekend, Steve has a friend from high school who will be in town for a bachelorette party. She lives in Chicago. She asked Steve if she could stay with him, and he said yes.

Does this seem odd to anyone? Would you travel with friends for a bachelorette party, but then not stay with the party? I suppose it could be seen as a cost-saving method, but really, when I've gone to bach parties, there has been several girls, so the cost of a hotel room (or two) was minimal.

It just seems really strange to me. I wouldn't fly to Chicago with the bride and then not stay with her! Isn't she the reason why I am there? Of course, if I had other friends there, I would try to make plans to meet them for lunch or something, but if my main point of being there is for the bride, then I'd spend the majority of my time with her. If I wanted to see friends, I'd see about the possibility of staying an extra night or something. She arrives Saturday morning, and then I assume leaves Monday (long weekend!), but I don't know for sure.

Am I the only one who thinks this is bizarre? Thoughts?

Totally weird. The whole point of a bachelorette party is to spend time together. Keep a keen eye on the situation.

I agree.

I do think that is weird. If a person is going somewhere for a bachelorette party, they should be staying with their friends.

Yeah that is definitely weird. I would feel so odd doing that to the bride and to you!

yeahhh that's kind of weird. I stayed with my BM's for mine and the BM's stayed with me for the one i hosted. Soo...why wouldn't she want to stay with the party??
