Originally my husband wanted to go on a hunting trip with his guys for his bachelor party but due to time and money it didn’t happen. They ended up just going to the casino to drink and do some gambling. My husband is against the whole stripper party since he is in law enforcement so that was something that wasn’t an issue for us. My only stipulation was that it had to be at least a week before the wedding, none of that getting married while still wasted crap for us.

Mine won’t. He’s not a drinker and definitely not in to the bar scene, nor are his friends. I don’t know what they WILL do though…

My fiance doesn’t want a bachelor party at all! He doesn’t do many typical "guy" things (drink, like sports, strip clubs, eat meat etc) and doesn’t like the symbolism behind the idea of the party. I am perfectly ok with that.

My best friend really wants to throw me a bachelorette and I am not terribly enthused. I would like to go to an arcade or play laser tag or something, but I suspect that those sorts of things would not be options.

Neither of us are doing the traditional "Bachelor/ette" bar night/strip club thing.  Just not our scene.  I think he’s going with his guys to a baseball game and my gals and I are just going to go out to dinner.

He’s not into the traditional bachelor party either.  I think they are going to go do a surfing/fishing trip and just take the chance to do a guys weekend and catch up since they can’t see each other too often now that everyone lives all over the place.

My husband had a Halo party with all his friends… they ate pizza and played video games all night.

I had a girl’s night… we had a nice dinner and hung out.

Neither of us like the symbolism behind the bachelor/bachelorette parties that have strip clubs & drinking.

My husband and I weren’t into the wild party either.

He went on a fishing/camping trip with the boys, and I just went out to dinner with the girls and they slept over and we had a nice breakfast the next day.

We both had great times, didn’t ask our friends to spend a lot of money and really got to spend quality time with the people we love.

My future brother in law is really into making his own beer, so his bachelor party will be a day at the brewery with his best friends.

My SIL had a great bachelorette party — she really isn’t a big drinker and really wanted her mom and my mom (yes her FMIL!) at the party — so what we did was got Mani’s and Pedi’s and then went to Tea at the Four Seasons!!  After tea we went to a really fancy bar on Newbury Street in Boston and had some lunch, champagne, and opened gifts.  In the end it was the perfect day and no more expensive then any other bachelorette with limo’s and drinks and strippers!

My husband’s bachelor party was nont traditional.  A few of the men from his family got together and had dinner together- it was pretty boring.  His family is fairly religious so he wasn’t allowed to cut loose.  I myself visited a strip club 🙂  Role reversal.

My Fiance thinks strippers are dirty.

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I will be doing a Spa Day.  I have no idea what my Fiance will do, probably a day trip with his Best Man to Cabellas Outdoor World.

Boys are going into the wilderness to do some 4 wheeling and fishing.  I’ll let you know what I did on Monday 😉

My husband had no bachelor party of any kind.  I encouraged him, but he just wasn’t into the idea.  I actually think it’s sad he didn’t do anything — I loved my bachelorette party!  🙂
