Out-of-the-Box Mixed Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Ideas

In a related recent post, we asked you whether you’d say Yes or No to the idea of a mixed bachelor and bachelorette party. Some of you said yes, some of you no. Either way, we still love you. Which is why we want to share with you our our-of-the-box ideas for what we think could be fun for you!

Here’s some inspiration for a “Jack and Jills” party listed from mild/low-key/relaxing to a kinda adventurous and finally, won’t-be-up-for-breakfast-tomorrow.

Note that these ideas are probably not your typical bachelor/ette parties, it’s time for something fresh anyhow–beyond (or in addition to) the whiskeys and hangovers.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good party with booze and all, but the more out-of-the-box your bachelor/ette party ideas are, the more memorable they will be for you and your soon-to-be-married friends.

Who says your party has to be predictable? Or boring? Why do what everyone else is doing?


  • A Day at Sea – rent a boat for the day, have some food, swimming gear, and music.
  • Movie Marathon – pick someone’s house to host the party, make sure there’s plenty of popcorn, snacks, and drinks.
  • Progressive Dinner – have an appetizer at one restaurant, the main course at another, dessert at another, and end with drinks at a bar.

Kinda Adventurous

  • Bowling/Golf/Tennis Tournament – pit the guys against the girls or mix it up. 

  • Archery Lesson – if everyone is up for something new, archery might be the one thing the bride- and groom-to-be and friends (including you) might’ve been wanting to do.

  • Cook-/Bake-off – pick a theme/cuisine/dish and divide yourselves in teams for a chance to show off your cooking skills. Hopefully you won’t need to call delivery or take-out at the end of it.


  • River Boarding – up for even more adventure? Try river boarding for some fun that involves a little bit more workout. 

  • Paragliding – think you’ll enjoy a new kind of adrenaline rush? Try paragliding (tandem). Iheard it could get addicting.

  • Salsa/Swing Dance Class – book a dance instructor to come to one of your houses for a private class. End with dinner and drinks.

  • Karaoke – enough said.
