The Smart Way to Host a Bachelor/Bachelorette Party

Bachelor parties have always been a wedding tradition and it is up to the best man to host the event for the groom-to-be. Traditionally, these parties were held the night before the wedding.

I ask you? Do you think this is a good idea?

Not so long ago, a groom-to-be had his bachelor party the night before the wedding. The guys partied all night and when the groom arrived at the church the next morning (about an hour before the ceremony), he was blitzed! The mother-of-the-bride threw him into the limo, told the driver to buy him coffee and drive him around till he sobered up!

Moral of the Story: Don't ever host a bachelor/bachelorette party the night before the wedding.

NOTE: Bachelorette parties are not hosted by the maid or matron of honor, since they are responsible to host a shower for the bride.

Is this all you need before your wedding!

Protect Your Assets: Party Smart!

If you intend to go out and paint the town red at your bachelor/bachelorette party, then be smart about it. The last thing you need is for the bride- or groom-to-be, or any of their party, to end up with a DUI or worse. Talk about putting a damper on the festivities! 

Rent a limo and a driver or two, and party to your heart's content. Make sure that the limo service collects the participants at their homes, and that they're dropped off there when the evening ends. In this way, there's nothing to worry about. 

Be careful whom you invite!

Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties: Who's Invited?

Bachelor/bachelorette party guests' include the best friends and/or relatives of the bride and groom, and the bridal parties--but this doesn't include parents. One of my clients invited her future mother-in-law to the party, only to take her to a very risque male strip club. Her FMIL was not amused! This bride-to-be later told me she thought she made a mistake; she did.

Use your common sense when inviting guests to your bachelor/bachelorette party. The idea is not to offend anyone!
