Bachelor parties started during the ancient Spartan period of the 5th century. Spartans held ceremonial dinners for the groom which involved sexual activities and plenty of drinking. Bachelorette parties on the other hand, did not become a fad till the early 1800s. Women would have more of a social gathering full of gossip and advice. Bachelor and bachelorette parties have evolved into a traditional all out celebration with a goal of making it an epic day for the groom and bride to be. Below are 5 things to expect at a bachelor or bachelorette party.
1) Dinner Gathering
Most dinner gatherings are organized by the best man and maid of honor. It’s sometimes a large gathering of the bride and groom’s closest friends and/or family members but it’s not rare of it being a party of 2 or 3 people. At the end of the day, the bride and groom should remember their last day of being single as one of the best times of their life filled with great memories. They should also feel comfortable with everything planned and should not feel pressured to doing something they don’t want to do.
If you watched the movies The Hangover or Bridesmaids, you’ll have a good idea of what most people expect from bachelor and bachelorette parties but not every trip is filled with out of control downward spiraling events that can lead to failed marriage before it even begun. Some toned down examples of bachelor and bachelorette parties are simple social gatherings such as backyard BBQ parties, bar hopping, club hopping, golf outings, concerts, music festivals, hunting trips, camping trips, a day at a resort or spa, water sport activities and sometimes ski trips depending on when the groom or bride plan to get married. It’s whatever you think the bride and groom to be will want to do to celebrate their last night of being single.
3) Alcohol and Drugs
Not every bachelor or bachelorette party is as innocent or tame as you may want it to be. Sometimes excessive drinking and drugs may be involved which tend to get out of control. This is never recommended but we all know that some people have their own agendas and sometimes it’s the “single” best man or maid of honor that has something wild up their sleeves which is why every party should be planned with everyone on the same page.
4) Bar Hopping, Night Clubs, and Strip Clubs
Almost every city has it’s own strip of bars or nightlife attractions. Most bachelor and bachelorette parties today involve bar hopping and a day out with a signature appearance of either dressing the same or having something that makes the group highly distinguished as a bachelor or bachelorette party. The celebration should reflect the bride and groom’s interests and personality. If dancing and music is their passion, a nightclub or concert might be right up their alley. If they’re ok with harmless adult entertainment, a strip club with male or female entertainment might be something they’ll be just fine with. Sometimes the bride and groom will party it up for their friends one last time before stepping into the married life of spending more time with their significant other.
5) Private Parties
Private parties are usually held in large hotel rooms to accommodate the entire party or in someone’s private residence. Since bachelor and bachelorette parties are not as basic as a regular house party, usually private adult entertainers from entertainment agencies such as Stripper Nation are hired to entertain the parties with a hot adult show and sometimes adult games to keep the party entertained and going. Harmless lap dances that are meant to tease are often performed for everyone at the party. The main goal for each entertainer is to provide an epic night full of surprises and to earn great tips for the time, travel, props, hard work and talent they provide. Everything in regards to what the entertainer will do and will not do will be explained prior to the private party and should be shared amongst each party guest member by the person hosting the party.
