For too many reasons to get into (basically our bridal party is lazy, inappropriate, broke or some combination of the 3 and cannot be depended on to throw any kind of bachelor/bachelorette party) Fiance and I have decided that we would throw ourselves a “last night out” party. I would make sure he got the steak dinner and all night blackjack that he wants and he would make sure I got to do all the drunk karaoke I could handle. We would still invite the bridal party and some friends to join us if they want and we would not expect anyone to pay for us just for themselves.
Is this allowed or would it be views as rude or etiquette breaking?

Go for it! If you and Fiance both want to have a “last night out,” don’t let a lazy bridal party ruin it! I don’t think it would be rude at all, and the bridal party would probably be relieved to not have to plan it, but would love to attend. Also, that way you can make sure it’s the exact kind of party you both want!

We did something similar. During the day the girls did the shower and the guys did a brewery tour. We all met up at our house for a cookout. And then we rented a vehicle for all of us to go to a comedy club and out for the night. It was a great chance for everybody in the bridal party to get to know each other. We had a blast, and it turned out to be a pretty epic night out.

Thanks for the responses, ladies! The more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I just shared with my Maid/Matron of Honor and she thinks it’s great. Yay!
