Bachelorette parties were modeled after the centuries-old bachelor party, which is historically is a dinner given by the bridegroom to his friends shortly before his wedding. Although the practice of giving a party to honor the bride-to-be goes back for centuries, the term bachelorette party itself did not begin until the 1960s. Initially, bachelorette parties were seen as often involving displays of sexual freedom, getting drunk and enjoying male strippers. However, nowadays the term is used for a wide variety of parties â€" mainly celebrating the bride-to-be's new journey into marriage. Some brides choose to have this party before the big day whilst others question the importance of having one in the first place.

Honoring the old chapter before entering the new one

Some people assume that having a bachelorette party means that you are not excited about getting married and you find it sad that you will no longer be ‘single’. But, the truth is that it isn’t about being sad that you are getting married at all. When you are about to enter a wonderful new journey in life called marriage, it is only fair that you also celebrate the life you had before it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a proper ‘goodbye’ to your old life before you enter a new one. You can have a bachelorette party and honor your old life whilst still be excited about getting married! It is like making an ending or having ‘closure’ and making sure that you really honor the times you had as a single person. Celebrate the life you had before you are about to make a new commitment to the love of your life because things will simply not be the same again. Take the time to really reminisce and look back on all the wonderful experiences you had before and what better way to do this than to do it with your closest of friends? Having this as an intention to your bachelorette party will simply make the event a lot more meaningful and enjoyable, rather than doing it just because you feel you ‘should’.

You do not have to have a bachelorette party if it is just something you don't think you want or need. However, before dismissing the idea completely, it helps to take into consideration the fact that you and every bride-to-be out there deserve to be able to celebrate yourself, the friendships you have and the life you have lived.

It doesn't have to be the same way everyone else does it; it can completely different and completely your own. The key is to honor yourself and have the best time ever with your closest friends. Now, doesn't that sound like such a great thing to have?
