How To Prepare Yourselves For The Bachelor/Bachelorette Party
It’s the last guy’s/girl’s night out as a “single” person and is another commonly followed custom in the marriage tradition. So what’s the deal with bachelor/bachelorette parties? Are they really as crazy as the media makes it out to be? Well depending on how you and your partner plan your own bachelor/bachelorette parties, it can go in many directions (and that can be a good thing).
The most important aspect about these parties is that you build trust with your partner that the two of you can go celebrate carefree, and in the end the bachelor/bachelorette party can be an opportunity to build a stronger bond in your relationship with both of you knowing that you can have independence and agency.
Here are some important aspects about having a bachelor/bachelorette party that can help alleviate any worries or concerns and make sure these parties can go off without a hitch.
Make Any Concerns Known
It’s important to open up about what these parties might concern you. Bottling them up will just make your concerns rise which can cause friction between you and your significant other. (You don’t want to be the kind of partner that has to call or text every few minutes just to check up on what your soon to be spouse is up to at their own bachelor/bachelorette party)
Even if the concerns may sound ridiculous, it’s better to simply air it out so you don’t have them on your mind before, during, and even after the party. It doesn’t have to be anything too formal, just a simple conversation about what the two of you are open and not open to doing at your respective parties.
Talk About The Party Beforehand
You don’t need to know every single detail about what the bachelor or bachelorette party entails, but it’s helpful to know the basics. Who you expect to be there, where you will go, and how long the party is expected to last will help set the stage for both you and your partner to be able to give one another the time to enjoy their “last hoorah!” This is especially important if the bachelor/bachelorette party requires any significant travel.
If you or your partner has any particular objections, be sure they get addressed and resolved before the party. (It’s never fun to enjoy a party for you knowing the love of your life is somewhere else moping about it).
Let The Parties Happen
Once you’ve figured out things from here, let the parties play out! Enjoy your night as the party is meant for you. When you are able to address your concerns and have an understanding of how your bachelor/bachelorette parties will turn out you can build trust together, knowing that you both get to have wonderful nights out and be able to come back as a couple stronger than ever.
After your bachelor/bachelorette parties are over, the two of you can move on to focus on the wedding day that is meant to celebrate your relationship and turn it into something truly special.
