Joint Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties

What Do You Think of Joint Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties?

Some couples prefer throwing separate bachelor and bachelorette parties, but there are those who prefer joint bachelor and bachelorette parties, also known as Jack and Jill parties. It seems like a great way to celebrate your impending nuptials together if you and your loved one have the same group of friends and if you don't want to exclude friends who aren't of the same gender.

Traditionally, these parties, especially the bachelor's, celebrate the last night of freedom before marriage. But for many, the parties have evolved beyond that and are simply a night or weekend of enjoying a bit of lighthearted fun with your closest friends. It all comes down to preference, but I'm wondering, what are your thoughts on celebrating the end of your bachelor and bachelorette status together?

I got married 10 years ago and we did a joint one back then. It was great and we all had fun...it helped introduce a lot of people and it made for an even greater wedding reception (even lead to a couple new hook ups). It was actually my husband's idea because the few bachelor parties he went to in the past he felt the bachelor took celebrating his last day of "freedom" too far. He feels your last day of freedom was before you chose to make a commitment and put a ring on her finger. I couldn't agree more.

There's appeal to both I think. Mine was sorta lame. While I did have fun, I think a big joint party would have been more fun!

It's an interesting idea to have a joint one as a way for the groomsmen and bridesmaids to get to know each other for the wedding if they don't already know each other.

I can definitely see why joint events can be fun.
