If you've been thinking of a girl's day at the spa for your bachelorette party, but hate the tranquil "Quiet, please" atmosphere, check out the party packages from Oakland-based Spa Dee Dah . This spa-party service, which comes to your home and transforms it into a private treatment space, fully encourages gabbing during massages and facials. They also line up bartenders, DJs, or burlesque instructors to add to the party. —Lauren Matthews, associate editor, Brides.com Magazines
Wedding Wisdom: Unlike other parties, the bachelorette party is one event where the hosts aren't expected to foot the bill for everyone. The maid-of-honor acts as an "organizer" in charge of getting everyone in the bridal party together. Typically, everyone pays for themselves and chips in to cover the bride's costs, since she is the one being honored.
