Pros and Cons of a Joint Bachelor(ette) Party

Written by Alexis De Jesus on November 15, 2017


It’s no secret that when two people have been together for  a certain amount of time, you both suddenly have the same group of friends. More individuals are realizing this and looking at this as a fun opportunity to live their best lives and have their last hurrah together. Gone are the days in which having a co-ed bachelor(ette) party was frowned upon. Here are some pros and cons of doing having a Jack & Jill party…

PRO:
Money is being saved! Believe it or not, this is a true statement. Whether the couple decides to stay local or take a flight, ultimately the airbnb/hotel rates cause way less damage to wallets because of group pricing.

CON:
You’re all staying together. This means everyone might throw in their opinions on costs and what they want to do, which can be infuriating.

PRO:
By doing a joint bash, there won’t be any future awkward conversations such as “How was the party? Did you do anything dumb?” Consider this conversation axed since you will be together and won’t have to worry about those nerve wracking details.

CON:
You’ll literally know everything your partner is doing, which can be overbearing. He or she might steal your shine and make the spotlight on him/her. If you’re okay with that, then by all means!

PRO:
You’ll get to do awesome activities together as an entire group while creating exceptional memories.

CON:
This might take time away from your own personal group (i.e. bride spends less time with her girls and groom spends less time with his guys). Perhaps having a night in which the group splits separate ways for the day (if you’re staying local, we can help you out with the party planning, click

Jack and Jill parties aren’t for everyone, and remember having a joint bash can go really good or extremely sour. It’s what you and your partner make of it. Good Luck!

Hornblower’s Rock the Yacht! Party cruise is the perfect place to host a bachelor or bachelorette party, you can do it together or separate… no judgment, just a guarantee that you’ll have a great time.
