    My husband and I talked about, and we would have enjoyed it. It didn’t end up happening, though.

    We wouldn’t have minded though after thinking about it, we decided that we’d prefer to have our own parties. The things that my girls and I would enjoy couldn’t possibly be more different than the things the guys would enjoy. If you’re thinking about just going to some bars for drinks and maybe a nice dinner or something that I imagine that would be fine for everyone involved but when you start adding in wine tasting and day spas, you’ll probably lose ‘em. Ultimately, it really depends on what events you have planned.

    I attended a joint bachelor/bachelorette party last year. The couple rented a party bus and invited all their friends out for the night. It was so much fun!

    We did this. It was mostly our bridal party and close friends. The girls did the shower during the day while the guys hit a brewery tour. Then we cooked out at our house and then went out for the night. We rented a stretch hummer and went to a comedy club and then out. It was a lot of fun and gave the few who didn’t know each other a chance to hang out. The wedding was like an epic reunion for the group. DH and I don’t go out much since we have kids so for us we wanted to be able to spend the night out together instead of doing our own thing.

    I’ve been to a few and had a BLAST! We didn’t do this though

    I think it would be fun – but for me personally I didn’t want a joint one. I love going out with just my girls and didn’t want my bachelorette party to feel like a birthday party (celebrating with all friends not girls only.)

    We did it and loved it – split up during the day and did girls only/boys only stuff, then got together for dinner and going out afterwards. Many of our friends are paired up and it was a great way for us to all have fun together.

    I’m certainly not opposed to this idea, but it would just require some reorganizing of my expectations. In my mind, if it’s joint, what would make it any different than a night out on the town with friends? I dunno, it just doesn’t feel terribly bachelorette/bachelor-y. But if that’s what you’re going for then it’s perfect.

    Now I’m intriuged and wondering if this would be a good option for us…. For those of you that have been a part of one of these, how did it differ from a regular night out with friends? I would also be worried that the couples would stick together and the girls wouldn’t get to know each other, as I’m hoping they will at by bach, since my bridesmaids don’t really know each other. Was this a problem in your experience?

    I think it would be so much fun! However, my FI and I love spending time together and do everything together all the time, so we decided to do separate parties basically for our friends. We don’t have much time for our friends anymore period, so we figured it would be good to at least have one last great shabang before we are married. so basically it’s more for them than it is us haha but either way it will be a lot of fun! I’m sure they will appreciate the one-on-one time.

    we sorta did this when my friend got married. The girls had dinner and drinks and went to see a psychic, and the guys did a few “guy” things and then we all met up at a bar later.

     It was actually a lot of fun. I’d recommend it!

    FI and I talked about it and we wouldn’t mind since we are both friends with each others friends (if that makes sense).
