Bachelorette parties didn’t enter into the public eye until the 1960s when the women’s rights movement helped women join the male tradition.
The parties began as a scandalous upgrade from the bridal shower, in which female friends would give the bride “embarrassing” gifts such as lingerie. Today, many bachelorette parties try to rival the men’s bachelor party by the level of craziness. However, all brides will have a bachelorette party in some form or another, whether it’s an in-house get together with a few friends or an all out night on the town.
The main goal of a bachelorette party is to celebrate your last night as a single woman!
