Tying the knot and stepping into the world of monogamy should be celebrated, there’s no doubt about that. Whether you’re bidding your old compadre adieu, shedding a few manly tears as he parts with the freedom he knew and loved. Or you’re organizing a pre-marital bash before your best friend ties the knot with the man of her dreams, you want them to remember this party forever. We have some fun Bachelor and Bachelorette Party ideas!
So naturally, it can’t just be something everyone does or something everyone’s been doing for decades (sorry, that means no male or female strippers), it should be something truly unique and memorable. With that in mind, here are the best bachelor and bachelorette party ideas the bride- and groom-to-be are going to love.
Take a road trip. But don’t elope, rather take a fun and eventful trip with your crew to another city. Or even an outdoor destination where the wife-to-be cannot reach you. Sure, you want to check in every once in a while, but for the next couple of days, it should be just you and your best buds hanging out, having a great time. If you’re bound for a camping destination, be sure to bring all of your grilling necessities and don’t forget a mini-fridge packed with ice-cold beers.
Do something dangerous. But don’t get yourself hurt, rather choose a couple of thrilling and scary activities you’ve always wanted to try. Chances are your wife won’t let you when you finally say “I do”. This can be anything from bungee jumping to jumping out of a plane, from motocross through inhospitable terrains, to white-water rafting down a hillside. Just make sure it offers a hefty dose of adrenaline before the next event on your list.
Taste whiskey like true gentlemen. Now that you’re all tuckered out from acting brave in the face of peril, it’s time to awaken the gentleman in you and find a notable distillery. For instance, guided whiskey tasting in Sydney has become extremely popular in recent years among bachelors – and it also makes for a great road trip destination if you’re coming from out of town, so it’s kind of a win-win!
Rent a beach house. Hey, if the guys can get away for a few days, why should you be expected to stay put like the housewives of old? Nope, this is your chance to change the scenery and enjoy yourselves to the fullest, so go ahead and splurge on a nice beach house located on a private beach where you can host a weekend-long party for the girls. Bring in a professional bartender to make your stay that much more enjoyable!
Go to a drag show. Hey, drag shows are fun, you don’t even know how much until you actually see the performance. All the wine, neon lights, and used-to-be guys performing dressed in fluff and fur are a recipe for a night you’ll never forget. It sure beats male strippers, which is a show that leaves little for the imagination and can get dull pretty quickly. But watching a drag queen sing you your favorite song, that can never get old.
Organize a whole-day pampering session. Ladies, this should be a night-long party. There’s no doubt about that! But that doesn’t mean that the event can’t start in the morning and last the whole day as well. After all, the guys are having their macho fun, so why can’t you indulge yourself a bit. You can start with an early morning juice cleanse, and then move on to a relaxing massage. Perhaps then followed by a rejuvenating spa session.
After that, grab a healthy lunch with the girls! Then get your whole body prepped, from top to bottom, for a long night of partying. In your spa package, be sure to include a revitalizing facial treatment, a mani-pedi session, and don’t forget to have your hair styled by a professional before you head out on the town.
Bachelor and bachelorette parties should be truly memorable events. One that will see the bride- and groom-to-be through the gates of marriage with a bang. This is why you want to be original in your planning and offer something truly unforgettable. So make sure some of these tips, if not all of them, make it into your event-planning handbook.

Kris was the calm in the storm that I found wedding planning to be. Kris held my hand, encouraged me and also made me laugh when I didn’t feel like laughing. She is organized, professional and is the absolute best at what she does"

When our wedding was postponed due to COVID a mere 3 days before our date, she called us immediately and showered us with well wishes...and worked with us to make sure we were able to secure her for our new date in August.
