I LOVE the co-ed bachelor/bachelorette party!  I attended one over a weekend in New Orleans many moons ago.  But during the day the girls did their thing and the guys theirs.  And just like you mentioned, we came together at night and bar hopped/danced.  Crazy time but loads of fun.

Fiance and I have discussed doing the co-ed thing.  Maybe come together for dinner then head out for a night on the town.

I think if you have a big co-ed group of friends this is a great idea. If you’re not friendly with his BFFs and vice versa, it could get a little awkward though. We personally won’t be doing this because we usually hang out in co-ed groups, and I really want to do something girly with just my bridesmaids for the wedding.

I’m on the same page with GirlwithaRing…I really want to spend my bachelorette going wild with my girlfriends with Fiance and his friends nowhere in sight ;o)

I think dinner/going out is a great idea although I would make sure the guys are going to like wherever you’re going out dancing.  I know Fiance and his friends would loathe going to a club.  Maybe someplace with activities, like Dave and Buster’s, or even with pool tables or something…?

We did one big party and it was awesome.  It was great because we’ve been friends for such a long time that our wedding party was really just our big group of friends.  We did a scavenger hunt (Team Bride vs. Team Groom) around town (we got married in our hometown–where we all went to college).  We’re all really competitive, so it was really fun.  Then we met up at our favorite summertime bar/hangout.  It was an awesome party.

My friend’s bachelorette party had all the girls to a pole dance class then we met the guys out at a club.  It worked because most of us were married or dating and we all get along.

We’re definitely doing a co-ed party. I just hate the idea behind bachelor/bachelorette party. Even if it’s totally innocent with no strippers, the idea of a “last night of freedom” is pretty offensive to me. Marriage doesnt mean you wont have any freedom and if you see it that way, then you already had your last night of freedom long before getting engaged. I don’t mean to make this sound so judgmental for those of you having bach. parties, it just doesn’t make sense for our relationship. 

We do however want to pre-wedding celebrate…so we have a few considerations for our co-ed party: casino, dinner cruise on lake MI (out of chicago), UFC Fight/MMA Fight or some combination of these & maybe the bar after…

My fiance and a few SOs of girls attending crashed the end of our party… although I was happy to see him at the time, in retrospect I wish it had been just girls.  When you’re out with your SO, you just naturally gravitate towards each other and the b-party is really supposed to be about you with your friends.  Just my two cents— but in any case, I’m sure you’ll have a great time!
