Your Bachelor/Bachelorette Party

The get together known as the “bachelor party” or “stag party,” has recently been joined by a female counterpart known as the bachelorette party.

Like the bachelor party, the bachelorette party has become a celebration of the last night of “being single” and usually includes the immediate wedding party and very close friends of the bride or groom. The best man or maid of honour is usually in charge of coordinating the event.

Be creative when planning your party. Many local businesses have suggestions that guarantee a night to remember. A private dining room in a restaurant, a hotel or spa suite are popular party locations because they allow you to fully enjoy yourselves without disturbing other guests.

Bar hopping or nightclubs with comedy acts or live entertainment are other popular choices. And while you are out enjoying the evening, avoid any problems with drinking and driving by treating yourself to a night out in a limousine.

For a party at home, movie rentals/giant party games, a pool party or a BBQ will be a fun and memorable. A caterer can provide a menu that suits the event and a baker will provide a great cake!


The bachelor or bachelorette party can sometimes takes the form of a shower, with the bride or groom receiving small gifts. Lingerie, gag gifts, or things to use on the honeymoon are popular themes for this type of party.

The bachelor or bachelorette party should be a fun evening for the bride and groom and their friends. Be sure the party is tailored to suit the style, and personality of the guests of honour. Also be sure to preserve the evening in pictures. These party pictures will create an album of laughs that will last long after the party is over!
