My FI and I are thinking of having a joint party as well. We may just go out with our friends the night b4 the wedding instead of doing games and stuff

We are doing a co-ed party. We are just having a bonfire and get together with our friends the weekend before the wedding. We are all close and neither FI or I like going to bars.

The ladies are getting a party bus for the day while the guys do whatever they are doing then we are meeting back at our house about 11 to have a bonfire and party together. Our friends are bringing tents and campers to stay the night.

I don’t know, to me, a jack and jill party is just drama and jealousy waiting to happen at worst, and less fun since you can’t relax as much at best, but I guess it just depends on you and your FI.

We just got back from ours. Loved it! Here’s how ours went:

Day one – Everyone flies to Ft. Lauderdale. Girls go do their girl things, boys to their boy stuff. Meet for dinner and go drinking that night together.

Day 2 – Girls and guys are split for the whole day. There was potential for us to meet that night but his group didn’t want to see strippers so just the girls went.

Day 3 – Everyone does their own thing till dinner. Go get dinner, clubbing together. 

Day 4 – Breakfast together and fly home.

 

All So’s traditional friends thought it was just drama, fighting, hating all waiting to happen. Couldn’t have been anything further from the opposite of that. If you are honest with yourselves and honest with each other about what you want out of it and your expectations – it will be fine. It’s when one secretly doesn’t like an activity and doesn’t voice it or someone fails to consider the other or doesn’t listen to another’s requests that something does or does not happen – THAT’s when it goes downhill in my opinion.

We did!

Girls: Bridal shower during the day

Guys: Brewery tour

Both: Cooked out at our house, rented a large vehicle and went to a comedy club and then out to bars.

Ours was mostly our bridal party and close friends so it was pretty Epic. It made the reception a lot of fun with everyone knowing each other pretty well.

@NeNe G:  I’m sure you’ll have a great time if you go that route. We both felt it was really imporant that we get time apart during the trip which is why there were so many “guy/girl” splits during our trip. He deserves to go do his guy stuff/smoke cigars/whatever it is dudes love to do as much as I deserved to spend a stupid amount of time at a spa having a stranger rub oil on me from head to foot and neither of us deserved to be subjected to the other’s idea of a good time. 😉 But we both love to eat and drink and dance so it made sense we’d be together for that. 

Don’t worry about it too much. I’m sure you’ll have a blast!
