Why are you planning your own bachelorette party?

I’m having a girls weekend (rather than a “bachelorette party”). 4 of my friends have done the same thing. The bride pays their own way, but often the other girls pitch in for dinner or drinks, etc. One night we have a nice dinner and the other night we go out dancing similar to what you’d do on bachelorette party night. The best part is that you’re together in a nice location, away from the craziness if only for a night or 2.

forgot to include that we live in different parts of the country, so the location is in a random city. One was in Miami, NYC, Austin. I think mine will be in Chicago or Boston. I’m paying for my flight and room (though they probably won’t let me pay for the room)

EDIT : Confusion on my part

Anyway, hard to say – only you know your friends financial situations.  I have only a few very close friends so I’d be willing to spend a lot on their bachelorette weekends.

I don’t see a problem with you having a big part in planning your own bachelorette party or planning all of it, especially if your girls do not know each other well.  I’m the same way – I always end up being the one to plan things in our group!  I would definitely pay your own way and get your Maid/Matron of Honor or another BM involved in some way if possible so you can have someone to bounce ideas off of and make sure you are all on the same page.  That being said, it sounds like you are planning a very reasonable weekend trip by using one of these Groupon deals, but the costs can build up quickly depending on what you do so be careful!  I think a weekend trip that’s around $300 or less is reasonable, but it totally depends on the girls’ financial situations.  Personally, I love to travel and I’m always up for a weekend away, especially somewhere new and fun with all my girls.  I would suggesting having the weekend basically planned out before you get there, i.e. don’t make dinner plans spontaneously once you get there and risk accidentally springing a $100 pp meal on your girls one night.  Check out prices and deals beforehand and have several options for each meal/activity that will keep everyone comfortable budget-wise.

Personally, I’m not into those big trips for bachelorette parties.  Being in someone’s wedding is a huge expense, and to have to add on to a vacation seems like a bit much to me.  That’s just my personal opinion, but if your girls are fine with it, then go for it.
