If you want to have a girls weekend after the wedding – go for it! I just don’t understand why it would be called a bachelorette party. The meaning of bachelorette is “an unmarried woman… but you’d be married. Truthfully, I find it weird.

Are you and this other friend who is getting married close? Why not plan a joint – pre wedding – bachelorette party? If you do plan something after the wedding I definitely wouldn’t market it as a bachelorette party, because it doesn’t make sense.

You can certainly plan a girls weekend at the beach, but a bachelorette is kind of thrown in your honor. I think it would be weird to have it after the wedding.

After you’re married, it’s not a bachelorette party, it’s a girls’ night out.

@colormegreen:  The weekend after my wedding, I did not want to do a damn thing.  The thing is incredibly exhausting, both emotionally and physically, and organizing (or even going along on) a big exursion would literally be the last thing I wanted to do.  Just a perspective you might not have considered….

A big friend excursion a month or two later would be fun though!

@colormegreen:  definitely strange… settle for something less elaborate to have your bachelorette (a joint one with your friend is ag reat idea!) and just have a girls weekend some other time later in the summer… it will be fun to recap both weddings and etc anyway.

@colormegreen:  You can plan a girls’ weekend later on in the summer….sounds fun….but it isn’t a bachelorette party. Why can’t you just call it a fun friends / girls wknd?

@colormegreen:  Make it a girl’s weekend in August. I’d not make plans the weekend after my wedding unless it was my honeymoon.

after you’re both married, technically, it won’t be your bachelorette anymore.  I would call it a girl’s night

Weird, because you’re not a bachelorette anymore. But nothing wrong with just having a girls weekend.

Yeah, I agree with the PPs. Just go on a girls trip later in the summer. Don’t necessarily make it about yourself, just have fun with you all. Plus, then you can invite only your very bests, and not have to worry about the other girls who would be invited to a bachelorette.

It’s weird. Don’t do it. It makes no sense.
