Every bachelorette party I’ve been to has been so full of drama with the women trying to figure out what the guys are up to, tons of jealousy, and annoying things in general and when I talk to SO about it, he agrees. I end up missing him, he ends up missing me, and we just wish we could have just partied together.
Is there such a thing as a Co-Ed bachelor party? I think that would be much more fun. I think it would be cool to split off at some point and all for like maybe a scavenger hunt or something…
I digress! Have you heard of(or ever had one?) this and what did you call it? Are there other cultures that do such a thing? Thanks in advance!

- Wedding: December 2012 - Hacienda los Agaves
I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing somewhere but I’ve sure heard of this. If the couple have the same friends and they’re all used to party together why not? Altough most of the time they start the night apart and then get together somewhere, just so the girls and guys can have some alone time.
Personally I think it sounds fun, maybe cause I know Fiance and his friends are not party animals and we all get along so even if they’re on their own I won’t be worrying.
It’s a matter of how good the bride’s relationship is with the groom’s friends and viceversa.

@Helloemi: Before we even got engaged we had been thinking about having a co-ed bach party. We just aren’t sure what we want to do yet. Probably something laid back like a bbq and a bonfire. Fiance and I aren’t huge partiers nor drinkers so bar hopping is out of the question for us (not to mention that our best man is underage).

My friends did this, they called it a ‘Hag’ party cross between hen and stag, I’d have perhaps gone with the hybrid ‘Sten’. It didn’t feel like that sort of party though, more like an engagement party.

We’re having one, it doesn’t really matter if it’s a “thing” or not, do whatever you like best 🙂 Most of our friends are mutual and mixed genders so it makes a lot more sense to do it this way

@CatyLady: I was thinking “Fling before the Ring” but that sounds super girly.

We had a wedding party party. The guys did a brewery tour while we did the girl stuff and then we met up and grilled out. We had a stretch ecalade come pick us up and went to a comedy club and some bars. It was really fun and nice that everyone got to hang out before the wedding. The night got pretty wild so the reception was like an epic reunion for all of us.

@ieatunicorns: That sounds like a lot of fun, actually!

Thanks for the suggestions, but I wish there were other names out there for this type of thing… 🙁

Darling Husband and I wanted to do one. Our bridal party wouldn’t let us. We’re really laid back, so we wanted to do something chill and fun, and our friends and family kept saying, “You have the rest of your lives to hang out together, you don’t get to for this…” My girls, especially, wanted to do something exciting and big. I didn’t really want a bachelorette if it wasn’t gonna be a joint party, so we just ended up going to dinner. Haha.
