1. It's the perfect push off your couch
It can be hard to find an excuse to turn off Netflix (how many times have you re-watched season 5 of Parks and Rec?) but when the happy union of your college roommate is backing your weekend getaway, it's that much easier to just say yes.
2. Do it for the free stuff
Someone else is literally sponsoring your weekend of partying. Plus, the in-room gift basket is going to be a whole lot better because a) you’ll get an in-room gift-basket b) your friends will appreciate that you flew to be there with them on their special day c) they want you to party as hard as possible, so your hangover remedies, midnight snacks, and map of the island will all be wrapped up prettily for you in a nice little bow. No need to hit the local convenience store for Combos and Advil at 3am in your party clothes.
3. Flying can be fun now!
While sitting on a plane is not quite as good as spreading out on your couch, these days thanks to free wifi, cable, and the availability of those movies that you almost saw in the theater, but didn’t, flying can be a nice little way to spend a couple of hours. Plus, mini booze bottles! Start the party early, no one will fault you, they’ll probably just join you.
