Shrug: I’m Ambivalent About Having A Bachelorette Party

Surprise: not much about my engagement and upcoming wedding will be especially traditional. We’re doing it at City Hall. I’m keeping my last name. I’ll wear a dress that I already own.

Girl Talk: He’s Going To A Bachelor Party With Strippers

Bachelor and bachelorette parties have become synonymous with wild and reckless nights, the details of which are slightly obscured when describing it to significant others later. Movies like “Bachelor Party” and “The Hangover” paint the occasion as a shame-inducing free-for-all of alcohol and bawdiness, but it hasn’t always been that way.

Hey, Hollywood? I Want A Bachelorette Party Movie

I laughed so hard I cried this weekend, courtesy of “The Hangover.” (Did you see it? It was the blood brothers scene. OMG, so funny.) Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper are so hilarious as three friends who lose the groom-to-be during a wild bachelor party in Vegas.

Why I Hated His Strip-Club Bachelor Party

Being the modern, liberated, well-educated woman that I am, I never thought I would mind the man in my life going to a strip club.
