    @rachie576:  “and wants her bachelorette party to be a weekend (fri-sun).”

    …. and I want a pony for my birthday.

    What she wants is not necessarily what she gets, especially if she is not contributing. The bachelorette party is a gift from the girlfriends to the bride. As with any gift, the recipient of the gift has no say in it, other than to offer suggestions and veto things which are unacceptable. So the bachelorette party should be what everyone is prepared to do, which is not necessarily a weekend away. You might also think about what you’re expecting for your bachelorette party.

    Personally I think a bachelorette party budget should be less than $100 per person.

    i put up to 150, but realistically, are you going to be able to do all that stuff for that little?

    I would just be honest, even if it’s not the number she wants to hear. At least she is asking instead of planning it w/o input. Definitely speak up since you are getting the chance. I think weekend parties can be a little excessive and they always end up being expensive, especially if you have to pay for the bride. The activities, hotel, food and drink can really add up. I would not want to spend more than $100- $150 personally.
