(Closed) Does it make no sense to have a “Bachelorette” party, but with mostly guys?

I actually had two bachelorette parties.  One with my girls and one with my guys.  Granted, my situation might be a little different since my guy-one was with my best gays but I had a blast.  There was only one other female invited (my MOH).  I wouldn’t have done it any other way. 

Also, many years ago, I used to be friends with a group that was made up of about 5 girls and 2 guys.  When one of the guys got married, we had our own bachelor party for him and had tshirts made. 

I guess my point is that I think you can do whatever you want for your bachelorette party.  I think your friend’s idea sounds awesome.

I think you’re the bride so that bachelorette party is your rules! if you’re dude friendly, then it wouldn’t be true to you to scrounge up some ladies just to say they were there…

(i’ll be having a mixed party, so i may have some bias)

A bachelorette is just an excuse to go out and have fun with your friends. It doesn’t matter if your friends are male or female, go karaoke it up and have fun.

Go for it.  Celebrate with your friends, regardless of what gender they are.

Go for it! It makes perfect sense to have a party with your closest friends in attendance be them male or female.

I think it’s totally fine to celebrate with whatever friends you want!

My guy will celebrate with his friends, and a good number of them are female.

I may do something with a mixed-gender group of friends as well.

Who says you have to stick to female-only? You’ve already gone against some traditions already to suit who you are (e.g. picking your own ring, for instance), which I think is totally fine.

We’re living in a time when people are realizing weddings (and wedding-related stuff) are customizable and personalizeable.

Do whatever you’d have most fun at!

@KatyElle: Agreed!  There will be at least one guy at my bachelorette (my BFF and bridesman), and if anyone doesn’t like it, screw em!  🙂  Karaoke sounds awesome – enjoy!

Ah mixing the guys and girls and doing karaoke is exactly what I want for mine!!! So no i don’t think it’s bad- but everyone else I know does! My Maid/Matron of Honor, who I guess is planning it, vetoed the idea, and the guys are like “ew we’re not coming to a bachelorette” lol
