Fiancee's hen weekend

Ok some of you regulars maybe familiar with my Disneyland proposal a almost 2 years ago now, well we are getting married in May and going to Disney World and then Clearwater for our honeymoon, anyway back on topic my fiancee is trying to sort out a hen weekend, she initially wanted to go abroad but on my fiancee and he maid of honor could afford it, so they arranged a weekend in uk but again no one could afford it, so shes now just doing one night away in Manchester and i can tell shes a bit gutted as she really wanted a nice weekend away somewhere.

So here comes my bright idea, i am planning on letting her have this one night manchester hen night with all her friends but i am goinf to pay for her and her maid of honor to goto DLP for 3 nights (they both love disney) so she can have a proper hen break with just her and her best friend.

Do you think itsna good idea and would you like it of your fiance/e did something like that? or would you feel he or she is stepping on your toes?

What a lovely idea! I think she'll really appreciate the gesture. She gets to have her hen do with all her friends and gets to go to one of her favourite places with her maid of honour. What's not to like?!?

I'm sure there's a lot of girls wishing you were their fiancé with a gesture like that!

I think its a lovely idea, id run it by the maid of honour first just to make sure she can take the time off work. But seriously such a lovely gesture, shes a very lucky girl

Will you marry me instead?

That's such a sweet thing to do for your fiancé and maid of honor. I did a trip in December with my best friend and it was so great! The two of them will love it!

i was like you when i first met my wife. Full of joy and optimism for your future lives together.

i once paid £250 for a nights stay on valentine night (and that didnt include an evening meal which cost me an extra £80!!) at the Celtic Manor Resort (its one of wales' most expensive hotels). I booked the honeymoon suite. 4 poster bed, walk in wardbrobe, underfloor heating........it was fabulous. The wife was very "appreciative" that night if you catch my drift!

2 kids and 5 years later and shes lucky if she gets a card for valentines day now!

Ahh very nice I did something similar for my fiancee on our first valentines 3 years ago!

Next plan is to figure out how to tell her and her friend for that matter (asked her friendnto keep dates free but not told her where they are going) last year for her birthday i decorated the whole house in differed Disney themes music, costumes and everything!! haha, hmmm will have to get thinking!!

Hmmm.....that last bit I find slightly offensive? If my husband had written on a public forum I was very "appreciative" after flashing the cash, I'd have thumped him!
