Where did Bachelor Parties come from?
Oh, those Spartans. The first evidence of a celebration of a groom’s last night as a single man can be traced back as far as the 5th century B.C. Spartan soldiers would hold a dinner with plenty of toasts to the soon to be married man.
The modern idea of a Bachelorette party took much longer to evolve. Victorian women would hold tea parties to honour the bride-to-be but it wasn’t until the sexual revolution of the 1960’s that the Stagette began to take on the aspects of the traditional Stag.
Today, the pre-wedding festivities are as diverse as the couples themselves. A night on the town is still popular for both men and women. However, the combined Stag & Doe, destination or activity based celebrations or even wedding showers for men with gifts like power tools are gaining popularity.
