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 Brother-In-Law 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? Smile  We’re looking forward to it!!!
