Have you ever thought about doing a joint bachelor bachelorette party?
But is it right for you? According to Inside Weddings, there are a few things to consider.
A co-ed party might be for you if…
- You and your fiancé share a lot of friends, or if you have lots of friends of the opposite gender.
- You're inviting a lot of family members.
- You're both definitely not the strippers/cocaine-in-the-bathroom/Mike Tyson face-tattoo type. "With both men and women at your party, you have a great excuse for not hiring a stripper or using risqué décor," Inside Weddings writes.
- You just plain feel silly throwing a huge rager.
It might not be for you if…
- You have a close group of girlfriends and you want to be extra girly. "If you and your girls have been looking forward to your bachelorette party for years, there's no need to change your vision (especially if that vision includes a trip to a spa, shopping, or other "girly" activities!)," writes Inside Weddings.
- You want to keep things small.
- You are the strippers/cocaine-in-the-bathroom/Mike Tyson face-tattoo type. "It's the end of an era!" writes Inside Weddings. "Talking about cute boys (including your fiancé!) with your girlfriends is a fun way to celebrate this milestone in your life—and it's harder to do that with guy friends around!"
This weekend, Pitch Perfect stars and soon-to-be-married couple Anna Camp and Skylar Astin took part in a joint party…and it looks like it was aca-awesome.
They started the day separately.
The boys enjoyed some fun in the sun:
The ladies enjoyed a nice brunch.
And in the evening, both groups joined forces for some line-dancing at the Cowboy Palace Saloon in Chatsworth, California.
This was the guys getting ready:
And the girls:
Camp and Astin show that whichever type of bachelorette or bachelor you are, you have options.
