Q&A: Combining Your Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties 

Unsure about combining your bachelor and bachelorette parties? A coed bachelor party is still a pretty rare trend so you may not have attended one before. We answered some common questions about joint bachelor and bachelorette parties to help you decide if this idea is right for you.

1) Can You Have a Combined Bachelor and Bachelorette Party?

Yes! A lot of people are starting to combine their bachelor and bachelorette parties. Society is a lot more coed these days and so are our events. You don’t have to feel obligated to follow old fashioned wedding traditions if they don’t align with your modern lifestyle.

2) What Types of Activities Should a Joint Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Have?

Make sure to plan some coed activities for your couple’s bachelor party. You’ll want everyone to enjoy the party equally so don’t plan too many activities that are only geared toward one part of the group. Trivia games, bar crawls, scavenger hunts, and more are all fun for everyone.

3) Should All the Activities Be Coed at a Bachelor & Bachelorette Party?

No! We recommend having separate bachelor party events and bachelorette party events as well as combined activities. You don’t want the girls to feel like they missed out on some of the classic fun of a bachelorette with just the ladies and the same idea applies to the guys. While the girls go for manicures the guys can go to a cigar lounge. Then they can all meet up for dinner and drinks afterward.

4) Who Throws a Joint Bachelor + Bachelorette Party?

Traditionally a bachelor party is thrown by the best man and the bachelorette is thrown by the maid of honor. When you join the two events, the two of them can work together. As always, the other groomsmen and bridesmaids can feel free to help out with the planning process.

5) What is a Combined Bachelor and Bachelorette Party Called? 

There are a few cute names you can use for your combined bachelor/bachelorette party: Jack and Jill party, Doe and Stag party, Bachelor(ette) party, or Bach Bash. Call it whatever you’d like as long as it makes you happy and gets the point across to the invitees.

6) Should I Throw a Joint Bachelor and Bachelorette Party?

Only you and your future spouse can decide whether a combined bach is best for you or not. If you think all of your friends will enjoy hanging out with each other, if a lot of your wedding party consists of couples who would like to spend more time with each other, and if you and your spouse have a lot of the same interests -- this idea might be perfect for you. Keep in mind that you can still do some activities separately so you don’t lose the spirit of the tradition.

Have Fun at Your Combined Bachelor and Bachelorette!

Once you’ve decided that a combined party is perfect for your last hoorah, it’s time to start planning! Make sure you focus on activities that you and your future spouse enjoy. Plan a few events that are good for the girls and guys to do separately and some that everyone will enjoy together. Choose a location that everyone will enjoy and can afford the associated travel costs. You may be able to get a discount on a hotel block if your group is big enough! Happy planning!
