First off, I don’t think bachelor or bachelorette parties should ever be considered a “last night of freedom”.  If that freedom is the freedom to act as a single lady, well, shouldn’t that have happened before you agreed to commit to one person, your FI?  I think the whole “last night of freedom” notion is pretty disrespectful, unless you and FI have mutually agreed that it’s okay to act as if you were single at your respective parties.

But even if you aren’t doing anything your FI would frown upon, if you plan to get crazy/drink a good bit, it seems wise to NOT do it the night before your wedding.  Who wants to get married with a hangover?  That sounds like pure misery, and I think your regret about feeling less than your best on your wedding day will far outweigh and last in your memory longer than the nervousness you felt the night before.  To distract yourself and keep the nerves subdued the night before your wedding, why not have some girlfriends over for a much tamer event and then get to bed at a reasonable hour?

2 nights before the wedding? I would do it at least two weeks before the wedding!! your body takes a week to recover from a ‘heavy’ night of drinking and your skin will wont be as nice as it has had toxins in it. You really dont want to be drained.

Hope you have fun tho!

I agree.  2 nights before is cutting it close.  I’d say a week or 2 is good.  I had my bachelorette party in Vegas and only 2 of my girls could go with me so we’re doing a girl’s night out tomorrow.  My wedding is in 10 days and I don’t plan on getting hammered or anything crazy so it should be good.  Just dinner, drinks, dancing and hanging out.  Can’t wait!
