I think if you want to do this don't expect a book like the other girls have had. I mean for those quality photos you need a good camera, good lense, lighting, someone who knows how to work it, and a good editing program.
I realize my book won't be amazing if i do it, but my best friend has been taking photog classes for a while and I have a nice camera and a couple good lenses for her to use and I have Adobe CS4 I'll use to edit but dont expect an amazing book. If i do it in a couple weeks Ill show you what i end up w/. My friend is only in town for the weekend and its so close to us leaving.
You may be able to find someone who could do a good deal for you. I've figured even if i don't buy outfits, do my own hair and makeup, get a room and the book I'm still looking at $300+ and alot of work doing my own book.
I'm sure someone who could give us alot of info would be Tammy, Trish or Morgan

I have twice gotten photos taken by an amateur professional photographer. The first time was couples photos (like engagement photos but this was 2 years before we were engaged) which were free and the second time was photos with my new puppy (50$). Neither was as good as a professional photographer but still better than what I or a friend could have done.
For my boudoir photos, I found a professional photographer who had a really nice portfolio, but reasonable prices. She wanted 150$ for boudoir (including a set of 4x6 prints and low res CD, no book). Then I suggested I organize a marathon for her (i.e. using another wedding forum to find interested girls) and so she brought down the price to 75$ for each girl + 100$ for a photobook. Then since the marathon was so successful (and she ended up filling up 4 other marathon days this summer as a result!) she gave me a free photobook.
You can make your own photobook for under 50$ so just find a photographer who will give you a high resolution CD (which most will).
You don't have to spend 500$ for professional boudoir photos.
Finally, as per your original question, I think it coudl totally work to get a friend to do it, you could have a lot of fun.
