We want to have a “joint” bachelor and bachelorette weekend in the Catskills where we rent a house.
I am trying to decide if we should get two different houses to stay in or if we should share a house guys and girls. For one thing most of the people that will be invited are couples and the girls are more of my friends than their boyfriends are of my fiance (So their boyfriends might feel more comfortable staying at a house with their girlfriends/ might not want to go with just my fiancé). My fiancé only has about three guys that would be definitely going and staying somewhere with him so if we sleep at separate places I was wondering if they should camp or do something more affordable than renting a house for a weekend. If we got a house together with all of the couple friends we could definitely afford a house easier, but it might not be as fun having the guys there. I kind of see this as a last chance or at least easier time to get girls together without significant others and do a slumber party type thing. If we did have two separate houses I would still want to meet up for something like a barbecue but I just think I like the idea of having the house to ourselves at night more then having all of the couples together. So basically I am looking for opinions if anyone has done something similar.
This might sound confusing, so to reiterate, our choices are either
1)stay at one bigger house together with everyone
2)both get separate houses/boys camp(?)
issue with staying together- not getting a true girls time/night
issue with separate houses – fiancé doesn’t have as many guys going, would be more expensive
plus side of getting together- possible to get a nicer bigger place and easier to meet up and do activities together
