What is a Bachelorette Party?

"Bachelorette Party" or "Bachelorette Night Out" is a common term in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada. The terms "Chicken Party" or "Chicken Night" are used in Australia and New Zealand. In South Africa, "Girls' Party" or "Kitchen Tea" is used. Bachelorette party has been a term used for and by women since the Middle Ages and has its origins in a wide variety of fields.

The first mention of a “Bachelorette Party” dates back to the early 17th century and in the 19th century, there were references to girl-only parties. However, they had nothing to do with weddings, to which they are commonly associated with in the modern day. Instead, the bachelorette party was simply a gathering of women, often over tea, food, and music. Before it was used as a term for a pre-wedding party, bachelorette party was used in the United States as a general term for a women's gathering, usually held at the hostess's house.

In 1897, the Deseret News, one of the US’s oldest newspapers noted that the bachelorette party was "the time-honored idea that tea, chatter, clever gossip and hats are a necessary addition to these particular gatherings."

In 1940, Eleanor Roosevelt, one of America’s first ladies and wife to President Franklin D. Roosevelt was noted to have organized a Christmas bachelorette party for women in the cabinet and the press.

Organization of a Bachelorette Party near me

Bachelorette parties are female only. As a rule, they are organised before a wedding with bridesmaids but they can also be acquaintances. These girls are responsible for organizing the event but the bride can also participate in the planning if she desires. The head bridesmaid has to find a venue for the bachelorette party and organize everything.

Although the hostess usually pays for the entertainment, in most English-speaking countries, the costs of the event are usually borne by the participants. Whether the bride-to-be pays for her share, or the share is divided among other participants, it is determined by the organizers and the bride-to-be in the early stages of the planning process. More often than not, all participants in the celebration pay for this event.

In America, a pre-wedding party is more romantically called a bachelorette party or a bridal shower. As time has progressed, girls have moved away from the standard celebration of tea drinking in the bride's house or outdoors in the garden. In these modern times, girls love to go out and celebrate their bachelorette parties by partying in clubs, visiting beauty salons, or even renting a yacht.

The girls here love pink and prefer their attire and decorations to be this colour for use in their bachelorette parties. For example, bridesmaids would perhaps wear pink hats or T-shirts and flood the bride with pink gifts.
