$100 is my absolute max for a night out and it would have to include whatever is planned regarding food and drinks and transportation.  I wouldn’t just agree to $100 though, I would want to know what we’re getting for $100 because I can have a nice night out on the town for $100.

Locally I’d stick it at 100 dollars. However, if I’m flying out for the wedding (Like if I’m in it) I’m flying out early anyway (I will not fly specifically for a bachelorette. I think that’s ridiculous.) so I wouldn’t count the cost of my flight in the cost of it.

It really depends on what it is/who it’s for.  If my BFF or sister wanted to go to Mexico for an extended vacation, I would pay $1000.  But more likely it would be $100 MAX- and I’d try to stay below that.

If it’s for a trip then $1000 (maybe 1500 for my sister or best friend)

night out: $300-400

jeg14:  About $100 for an evening out. I don’t do Out of town bachelorettes whether that is Vegas, a cruise or anywhere ele.

Depends on the bride and group going.  If it were all close friends I’d be willing to do upwards of 2k for a long weekend getaway.  Just local maybe 150 for dinner and drinks.

I don’t plan to spend more than $300 on my own bachorlette, I wouldn’t expect my girls to pay more than $100 or so. I wouldn’t pay more than $150 for someone elses, if I even went [would depend on finances].

jeg14:  if its local, like just a night out in the city, $100. If we are doing a weekend trip, probably about $500 (including food, drinks and hotel stay).

I think it depends on the person and the event.  For someone I was extremely close with, I’d make anything work.  For a casual friend, I’d definitely drop a couple hundred on an in-town event, but traveling might be questionable, depending on the location and cost.

If it’s local, maybe $150 max, and I’m including gift, dinner, and hotel fare split x amount of ways. I don’t drink, regardless of the occassion, so I’m the DD or Sober Mother, so I’m not counting alcohol. I don’t have the means nor do I see the point in going on this extravagant trip for a bachelorette party. The only one I’ve been to that cost a little more was my sister’s because she lives in a different state. So, with plane ticket, and all of that I spent close to $600. Last year I spent $500 to go to a theme park, hotel, and spa as part of a bachelorette party, and that was my EXTREME maximum.

It also depends on the person. My other sister or a really close friend? I may spend more, but $1000? Sorry, no. My group of friends all pretty much come from the same demographic money-wise, so luckily we don’t have anyone attempting to go to Vegas or anything. My friend was in a wedding last year that went on a cruise and she spent over $1000 when all was said and done. I can’t rationalize that, “memories” or not.

My final answer is $150 local, $500 in extreme circumstances where I have to travel.

local night out $200 unless I was planning/hosting the party then the cost sky rockets.   My friend just planned mine and I’m sure she spent like $500…..yikes :/

100 max. AND I wouldn’t travel for one. I don’t have any sisters and my friends aren’t the kind of people to require a destination bachelorette. FI and I are saving for our future, I will travel for your wedding, but never for your bachelorette.
