If your best friend is getting married and you are part of the bridal party, it will be your duty to organize the bachelorette party. She would usually be expecting it because it is usually the done thing so you will have to find a way of keeping it a surprise. In the past, women had what was known as a bridal shower which were quiet affairs at home with all of the bride’s female relatives including her mother and her grandmother who would bring her gifts to help her with motherhood. Men on the other hand would traditionally have wild parties known as bachelor parties that were wild nights out which were in celebration of his “last night of freedom” as it was called however in recent time as gender roles broke down and men no longer considered their freedom as something that was going to be taken away, women started having what was known as a bachelorette party, a night out partying with her best mates or her bridal party and men’s bachelor parties also toned down to fun nights with their buddies but they were no longer inappropriate as this was considered cheating.
A joint party
In modern times, it is being considered quite accepted for the female bridal party and the male bridal party to team up and pool their finances to throw a bigger, better joint party for the couple because it is now accepted for both of them to be present at the party. For your alcohol, you can buy the West Winds gin, wine and a few other things. Many of these parties have a lot of drinking and therefore having a lot of alcohol at the party would be normal. You can also get Baileys irish for the party which is usually a crowd favourite. Many people love this and it is likely to go down well with your mates.
As both the bride and the groom will be expecting their parties closer to the wedding, you could choose instead to take the couple on a destination party a few weeks before at a time that they are never expecting it. This basically means that you take them on a vacation of sorts where you will have your party somewhere far away from home, potentially on a beach or at a resort if you have the finances. If you need more money, it might not be appropriate to ask other friends to also pitch in and invite them to come for the party as well.
