Mixed gender bachelor/bachelorette parties are becoming increasingly popular these days. Planning such a party can be a bit tricky because whatever entertainment is planned should be interesting for all genders, so some traditional bachelorette party activities are out of the question. Here are four ideas for a mixed-gender bachelorette party.
Bowling tournament. Bowling can be a very exciting sport, especially when you're a little bit tipsy and hella competitive. Split into teams (boys vs girls or co-ed teams – it's your choice) and find out who's best at bowling. Once the tournament is over, the losing team can ask for a rematch, and the fun will go on! If you don't want to play anymore, you can head to the bar where the winners will celebrate their victory and the losers will drown their sorrows.
Alternatives: paintball or any extreme sport if you're feeling adventurous.
Day at the beach. You bachelorette party doesn't have to be wild. In fact, relaxing before your big day may be a great idea. Head to the beach and spend the day sunbathing, swimming, playing Frisbee and volleyball, munching on snacks, drinking beach cocktails, and ogling hot lifeguards. You will have a good time and won't suffer from hangover the next day.
Alternatives: camping with s'mores, scary stories and sleeping under the stars or a backyard BBQ if you don't want to drive anywhere.
Beer/wine/whisky tasting. If you want your bachelorette party to involve alcohol, make it classy and book a wine tasting or a getaway to a local winery or brewery. It will allow you to enjoy high-quality drinks without getting wasted.
Alternatives: a mixology class if you're feeling creative, a pub crawl if you do want to get wasted and party like it's the last day of your life, or a drinking game night if you want you guests to bond over being forced to tell embarrassing and hilarious things about themselves (or making out).
Attending a show. A co-ed party with strippers or topless butlers might get real awkward real fast, so going to a strip club or hiring strippers (of any gender) might not be a good idea. If you still want your party be a bit sexy, you can attend a burlesque show. Such shows vary in the amount of nudity, and some of them are really sophisticated and classy.
Alternatives: a drag queen show if you want to do something out of the box and have open-minded friends or a rock concert if you want to see a show but don't want any nudity.
