I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor in my friends upcoming wedding (June) and her Fiance and her are very jelous of other men/women and they requested absolutely no strippers(I wasn’t planning on hiring them anyway) and a dual bachelor/bachelorette party.
Has anyone ever been to one before? It sort of threw me off when I heard the request and I of course want everyone to have a great time. Not sure what to do that would be fun for everyone.
Live north of boston so anything in that area for recommendations are welcome as well!

I’ve heard they can actually be a ton of fun! Also, if that’s what the couple wants, then why not? As long as they’re okay with it, it’s okay! 🙂
You’re a good Maid/Matron of Honor for considering it before just jumping in head first!

My future SIL and BIL had a duo party. They decided they just wanted to have a bon-fire and hang out with their closest friends. I think it went ok, not my style, but fit them as a couple!

i attended a bachelor/bachelorette party. It was held at a friend’s cabin in the woods for one night. A group of 20 of us stayed overnight and it was like a small private high school reunion. I actually had more fun that night then I did at their wedding. It allowed time for us to all catch up with each other. The food and conversation was great – sort of like The Big Chill without the drama.

My Fiance and I are doing this as even though the Best Man didn’t see it we’re really excited!
We don’t live in a very big town so our plan is…
Head out of town for the day (FI & I don’t sleep together & I know bridal party funds are tight so 2 rooms would be hard to get)
We’re going to Austin for a day of Girls vs. Guys
Laser Tag, Bowling, PutPut, any thing we can think of competitively w/o doing a scavenger hunt (FI thinks their dumb lol)
Have a nice lunch/dinner and head home.
We thought this would be a great time for the whole party to get to know each other & the girls vs. guys still helps “bonding” within the sexes!
Like I said… we’re pretty excited… & Fiance and I will still get to enjoy each other rather than having the traditional “ssssshhhh don’t let them know” (which I don’t think it to marriage savvy anyways) lol
Hope that gives some ideas =)

My Fiance and I are having a bachelor/bachelorette bonfire this coming weekend. All of our friends actually said what a good idea it was to combine them. Neither one of us are very jeolous…but we don’t care for going out without one another. It’s just not the same. I think because a couple has a joint party, doesn’t mean it won’t be fun. We’ve actually expressed, no strippers or silly “traditional” bachelor/bachelorette stuff. It’s our day, so why not make it our party-before-the-wedding night? We’re looking forward to it!!!
