My best friend got married this past December and, for the most part, she had a traditional wedding — all except for her bachelorette party. Instead of having a girls' weekend in Cabo or a sloppy, phallic and sash-adorned night at the club, she opted for a co-ed bachelorette celebration since a good portion of her oldest and closest friends are male. Her plan was to have a day at Disneyland and then a casual dinner with drinks at a local restaurant. Easy, fun, and exactly how she wanted to celebrate her upcoming nuptials.

"Unconventional" bachelorette parties seem to be on the rise, and having a co-ed party is a great way to mix things up. I won't go too in-depth on my thoughts regarding traditional bach parties — "one last night of freedom" is kind of a bullshit concept for both genders and isn't super relevant if you've been in a committed relationship for any length of time — but I really love the idea of mixed-gender bachelorette revelry. And think about it this way: you're going to be spending lots of quality time with your bridesmaids aside from the bachelorette party, so why not include all of your friends in celebrating your pending walk down the aisle? Here are a few ways to have a co-ed bachelorette party that everyone will enjoy.
