What You Need to Know About the Bachelor Party

Both the bachelor party and bachelorette party are typically thrown by the Best Man or the Maid of Honor respectively. But when it comes to how to throw a bachelor or bachelorette party, there’s only one simple rule: have fun with your friends.

The bachelor and / or bachelorette party is an opportunity to get your wolfpack together to celebrate the end of your singleness. We’d give you suggestions, but given that we spend our spare time writing wedding planning guides, we’ll defer to your judgment as to what constitutes a weekend of fun.

Chances are your bridal party is already scheming on ways to celebrate your final few weeks of single living, and if you have opinions about it, now is the time to let them know.

Whether you’re going for one last night on the town or something more laid back, ask the host to take everyone’s schedules and budget into mind when he or she is putting it together. If your groomsmen or bridesmaids live all over the place and will have to fly in for your bachelor(ette) party and your wedding just a few short weeks later, maybe nix the big bash and go for something smaller and intimate with friends who are nearby.

At the end of the day, there are no rules as to what the bachelor party or bachelorette party should look like.
