My fiance's best man is planning a trip to Costa Rica for the groomsmen. I didn't think of having something so elaborate for my bachelorette, but now I'm considering it. I don't want to just go out drinking in the city with my friends, I feel like that isn't special and I can do it any day of the week. I wanted to do a trip to a spa. Now that my fiance is going to far away, I thought it would be cool to go out west to a hot springs spa and do a whole weekend filled with massages, facials and lots of champagne and girl-talk. Is it too much to ask people to spend so much money? I mean, on one hand, I feel like they are def optional, so if someone doesn't have the money, they don't have to come. But, I also feel like everyone is doing this lately. I've had three friends this year do a Vegas weekend for different bachelorette parties (we are all from NY).
What are people's feelings about destination bachelorettes.
Also, I don't need advice on who throws the party. I am just giving maids of honor ideas.
