dessilove:  No, I wouldn’t mind sharing.

Whose idea was the weekend getaway?  Yours?  The brides?  Was there any discussion of budget? 

Frankly, I think these extravagant destination bachelorette’s are…over the top.  I mean, I get it and they do sound like fun but there’s just so much room for disagreement, disgruntlement, dissapointment…  I know that I wouldn’t want to spend a ton of money on someone else’s bachelorette. One night out bar hopping can run into the hundrends so a whole weekend with hotel and travel?  Too much. 

Reign it in.  Be honest about how much you can put toward the weekend.  I doubt you’ll be alone in wanting to set some spending limits.

dessilove:  I can’t stand sharing a bed with someone other than FI, but I would do it for a destination party like that if it meant saving a fair bit of money.

I would definitely be ok with sharing a bed or having a pullout bed.  6 or 8 of us had a weekend in NYC and a single suite sharing bed, and sleeping on sleeper beds.  I assume that if you 6 are going away together for a weekend, you are close enough to share a bed and dont have to have your own space.

dessilove:  Stop making comments and be more direct with the bride. “I can’t afford to spend this much. If we don’t find reasonable accomodation, I won’t be able to attend.”

As a pp stated, I doubt you are the only one who would like toi reign in the spending.
