One of the greatest traditions of engagements and weddings have always been the bachelor and bachelorette parties. It’s the bride and groom’s last hurrah before they are officially wed. It’s also a great opportunity for their close friends to let loose and have a little fun. It’s a great way to forget about all the stress surrounding wedding planning and party.
However, sometimes things can get a little too fun. When an event is framed around the idea of this being the last time for the groom to really let loose and have some fun, it’s only a matter of time before things escalate and quickly get out of control. Unfortunately, there are plenty of instances where things got so out of control that it ended up costing the wedding altogether. Just take it from these people who recently shared stories about bachelor parties getting so crazy that it resulted in a canceled wedding.
72. Revenge Of The Ex
My wife’s friend called off her wedding a week before the ceremony. She lived several hundred miles away for school but came back to her hometown two weeks before the wedding to make sure everything was lined up and have her bachelorette party. In the course of her visit, she came across an old boyfriend (who was also engaged) and things “sparked up” again. They agreed they should each leave their fiancés and give their relationship another shot.
Turns out, he didn’t keep up his end of the bargain, and she is still single today.
71. Stranded And Satisfied
My dad and his friends took a buddy by canoe to an island to get inebriated the night before the wedding. He told them all he didn’t want to go through with it but couldn’t figure out how to get out of it. When he woke up in the morning, they had stranded him on the island, he missed the wedding, his buddies were branded as the jerks. Groom-to be was relieved.
70. Inebriated Infidelity
I see a lot of bachelor and bachelorette parties in my line of work. I actually have a few of these memories.
The first that comes to mind was an interesting night where the bachelor party was happening at one bar and the bachelorette party was in the bar down the block. At the groom-to-be’s party, I get a call for help from the place. It’s a tame security call. Just a couple getting it on in a bathroom. The bar wanted them booted. I find out the dude is the groom to be and the girl is just some random chick. The chick goes off on her own and now I’m with the groom outside.
He’s out of it and almost uncontrollable. I am trying to find him a way home safely. His bros were all terrible and kept the party going without him. After a while, the bride-to-be and her gals come walking down the street. A couple people around chime in and tell her why I am there dealing with him. She breaks down and calls the wedding off right there. He ended up going to detox himself that night.
69. Saved By Sobriety
I know a guy who seemingly had his life together: a great career, lots of friends, beautiful fiancée.
He had a tendency to have a bit too much while partying, and a few weeks before the wedding he woke up in the hospital with serious injuries due to a non-automotive inebriated accident. The scariest part for him was that he didn’t remember a thing past leaving the party to walk home. Did he fall and hit his head? Did someone attack him and leave him for dead?
The thought of that scared him, and he decided to sober up. It also caused him to reflect on his life, and he realized his fiancée was manipulative, controlling, and he’d never be happy living with someone like that.
He has some long-term damage from the injury, but he’s still sober, spends much of his free time for a charitable cause, and dodged a serious bullet (a bad marriage) as a result of that horrible injury so he oddly came out ahead in the end.
68. Groom Gone Rouge
I bartend weddings fairly often and work directly with wedding planners all the time and meet with the bride and groom to be to talk things through and create a sense of familiarity. Each time I met the groom, he just kind of seemed out of it but I chalked it up to stress.
On the day of the wedding, before the ceremony, the wedding planner comes over and asks for a couple of drinks for herself. She doesn’t drink on jobs so I ask her why. Apparently, things were about to get started but the groom was missing and wasn’t responding to phone calls so everyone is looking for him.
Then, one of the bridesmaids disappears. Not long after, the brother of the groom gets a text from the groom saying he and the bridesmaid are in love and they’re running away to elope and that he’ll call him after. Everyone is getting antsy waiting for things to start and they’ve all been waiting for like two hours. Now the wedding planner has to tell 150 people that the wedding is off and explain to the parents what happened while the wedding party is consoling the bride.
67. Once A Cheater
One of the groomsmen got into a huge fight with the groom because he brought up the fact that his future wife cheated on him a few years prior. This is true, but it was water under the bridge by that point. Anyway, the groom got really angry and said, “Don’t bother coming,” then started reconsidering the marriage.
Anyway, the next day they had sobered up and apologized to each other so the wedding went ahead. She did, in fact, cheat on him in the end — several years later though.
66. Mutual Destruction
Both parties happened the same night, in the same location, as they didn’t trust each other. Bachelorette and her maid of honor snuck off mid-party to go upstairs to a room they booked to get intimate with some random people.
Don’t worry—the bachelor was scum too. At some point during their relationship, he poked holes in his rubber so she’d get pregnant and stay.
Unsplash65. What Happens In Vegas
Bachelor party went on a cruise and never left the ship. They ate too much and had a lot to drink. Meanwhile, the bachelorette party went to Vegas. The bride got intimate one of the workers at the party and two of the bridesmaids hooked up with old boyfriends who just happened to be there. The wedding never happened. But the bridesmaids are now both engaged to their respective boyfriends (the ones that they cheated on) and planning a double bachelorette party in—you guessed it—Las Vegas.
64. Hole In One
Last year, I was a groomsman in a wedding with a guy I have known for close to 15 years as a good friend. We did the typical “get a nice dinner, then hit the town hard” kind of party. Ended up at a Top Golf, loaded out of our minds. We were having a lot of fun when we noticed that the groom was gone for longer than it takes to pee… so we went looking.
We couldn’t find him in the bathroom. The staff said he went outside to “clear his head and have a smoke”. We went out and didn’t see him in the parking lot. We started going into panic mode because he was super sloppy when inebriated and gets crazy. We ended up calling the bride-to-be. She got a crying phone call from him and he said he was meeting another friend, then he hung up on her and threw his phone.
Fast forward two hours and the bride’s brother finds him…with another dude. Apparently, he was holding back that he was actually attracted to men and that he had a secret boyfriend (plot twist: was the bride’s brother’s best friend). So the wedding was called off and he just up and moved out of the state.
He is now a dancer at a few clubs and is currently engaged to marry his ex-bride’s brother’s best friend. Happy for the dude.
63. Brotherly Behavior
The bride’s brother (having attended the husband’s bachelor party) twisted and exaggerated every detail of the bachelor party to make the husband look bad to the bride’s parents in an attempt to deflect attention away from his substance addiction.
62. Talk About Ghosted
A family friend had been with this guy for a few years; their relationship sounded absolutely perfect. Attractive guy, good job, caring and understanding and you could tell they were one of those “forever” couples. A week before the wedding he just disappeared. She came home that day and everything of his was gone; it was like he was never there.
61. Fighting For Love
I was working as a bouncer one time and the bride and groom decided it would be a good idea to throw their bachelor/bachelorette parties on the same night in the same town. I guess they must have been from out of town.
Anyway, it’s the night before the wedding, which is not a good night to get messy inebriated. Both parties wind up at my bar at the same time. The groom catches the bride having drinks off a dude and getting very cozy, so he gets jealous and grabs the bride. They get into it and he gets rough with her.
So I grabbed the dude to drag him out and he and his friends decided it would be extra fun to try and fight a bunch of angry sober bouncers. We beat up him and his friends while some of the other staff kept the girls held back. Cops showed up and he got hauled off; none of us wanted to press charges. I’m 99.99% positive the wedding didn’t go forward.
60. Court Instead Of Ceremony
The inebriated bachelor got in a bar fight at the bachelor party and got arrested. They had to cancel the wedding for court day or prison, I don’t remember specifically.
59. The Devil’s Vacation
The groom-to-be was cheating with his best friend’s wife. We all celebrated their wedding too, a year before. It all came crashing down when the four of them went on a vacation together. It was a sad time for my friend.
58. A Small Problem
A woman gave birth nine months after her wedding; the baby had dwarfism. She admitted to sleeping with the dwarf that was at her bachelorette party.
57. More Than Friends
I traveled with my wife (then girlfriend) to a wedding she was in. At the rehearsal, I told my wife there was something going on between the bride and the maid of honor. She laughed. Two weeks after the wedding, the bride’s Facebook went dark. The bride and maid of honor are now living together in another state. I still talk about how I called it within an hour of meeting them. Poor groom… super nice dude.
56. Pre-Ceremony Chaos
Wedding Photographer here: This happened with a couple back in 2015.
The night before the wedding, all the bridal party got together at the hotel, partied, and partied a lot. I show up the next morning at 8 a.m. after a two-hour drive, only to be told by the hotel receptionist that there was not going to be a wedding.
Apparently, a large fight broke out between the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Money to pay the vendors was stolen. The ceremony was supposed to be at eleven a.m. that day. Nobody called and told me. I called the bride’s mother and she stated that she was off to pick up the bride and groom, sit them down, and still try to have a wedding.
Fast forward a couple of hours, the groom showed up inebriated out of his mind around 10 a.m. The guests were already showing up, the bride finally showed around noon, and there was a ceremony at one p.m. Yes, they still got married. The groom was out of it the whole day, the couple argued a ton, and the groom also got very cozy with his own mother during the mother-son dance.
Needless to say… it was an eventful day.
55. A Simple Explanation
A friend of mine in college had been engaged to her high school sweetheart. The plan was for them to get married after she graduated. She was one of those that dreamed of her wedding since she was a little girl. She had been planning forever! A week before the wedding, he leaves without a trace, except a note saying, “I can’t marry you.” She was devastated. We still had a party with the wedding cake, food, etc. because it had all been paid for already. Saddest party ever. She ran into him a few years later at an 80s dance club wearing a mesh shirt and a taxi hat with a dude.
54. A Prior Engagement
On the day of the wedding, the groom’s family is patiently waiting. The bride’s family hasn’t shown. The bride’s mother finally arrives and says that the bride has discovered the groom has a second fiancée in another state and the wedding is off. Rehearsal dinner photos went up on Facebook and someone tagged the wrong girl assuming that was his fiancée he had been talking about. Except it was the other fiancée. So the bride sees her tagged as someone else and messages from out-of-town friends like, “Can’t wait to meet her! Why wasn’t I invited?”
53. All Paid Vacation
A family friend called off their destination wedding about one week before the date. Her whole side of the family already had the venue paid for, food and beverages booked, and their tickets all bought so they still flew there and just had a big party. Her dad hated the guy she was marrying, and no one else liked him either. So they were a lot happier at this party than they would have been at a wedding.
52. Playing Doubles
Well, it wasn’t a bachelor party but a couple of months before the wedding it was discovered she was leading a double life.
Her frequent work trips to the UK were actually just her driving a few hours away, where she was living with another guy. She was telling him the same story but in reverse.
The wedding was called off. Much money was lost. Not sure what her plan was…
51. Abort Mission
A military idiot in my old unit had a bachelor party at a (very nasty) club and hooked up with a dancer in front of his buddies in the private room. Of course, the word about this spread like wildfire in the unit and was confirmed by the dozens of guys that were in the room when it happened. Military spouses gossip and talk and soon the wife found out and they were divorced less than a month later.
I’m still friends with the groom on Facebook and he is still an idiot.
50. Spilling Secrets
I was just at a bachelorette party where one of the bridesmaids got wasted and was happily telling the bride, “Oh, I’m so glad you and Fiancé worked things out after he cheated. I know he didn’t mean it, you two are perfect together.”
The bride didn’t know… so she told the bridesmaid that her (bridesmaid’s) husband cheated as well. Later at the wedding, the bridesmaid’s husband shows up to tell everyone that the bride also cheated.
49. Perfect Timing
It was a month before my scheduled wedding and I was getting everything ready. In the meantime, all of my close friends in my wedding party came out to celebrate my bachelor party with some partying, floating, skydiving, etc.
Well, the night before they get there, my now-ex-fiancée who I had been with for eight years says that she no longer wants to go through with the wedding. So I spend the morning my friends are there calling around to friends, family, and reservation services explaining the news (completely blindsided).
I come to find out she had cheated on me and had been feeling that way “for a while” but didn’t share this with me until the day of my birthday… the day before my friends visit for a few days.
Needless to say, the plans changed a bit and it turned into my birthday party instead. It was pretty awful but I ended up having a good time with best friends.
Much happier now with my soulmate and so thankful that things worked out the way they did!
48. Well Done
My close friend from high school thought it would be a good idea to marry this “so handsome and mature” guy about 15 years older than her after only knowing him for six months. I didn’t have a problem with the age as I prefer older men myself, but with that being said, I know some of those men only seek girls our age because of their immaturity.
It was the Wednesday before their bachelorette/bachelor parties and the three of us were having dinner at one of our favorite spots. I guess his order of well-done steak came out improperly cooked and he just lost it on the waiter, demanded the chef come out and then basically berated him and called him incompetent and unable to do his job (in a Michelin-star-awarded kitchen!).
I look up at my good friend and she is just borderline tears, I’m guessing going over every little remark he’s made in the past, and then imagining a future with him. She called it off after the bachelor party.
47. Swallowing Her Pride
My ex-girlfriend went out with her friend as she was her bridesmaid. She came home and was like, “Chad, you can’t say a word… not a single word of what I’m about to tell you…” to which I happily agreed. I didn’t know the couple at all but knew they both made habitually poor decisions.
She proceeds to tell me they went out and partied hard. Her friend was a wealthy trust fund baby and had a prescription medicine “hobby”. Anyway, long story short, they end up at a club, some of them go out into an alley to get some air, come back inside and the bride is missing. She’d claimed she was going to the bathroom, never came back. They can’t find her anywhere and start to panic. After like 35 minutes she finally turns up, she’s slurring speech and all and proceeds to talk about how she was with one of the male entertainers. Long story short, she ended up doing some pretty reprehensible stuff.
The next day, we attended the most ridiculous wedding I’ve ever seen (rich girl, rich dad, rich friends to impress, black tie, you get the picture) and I cringed when he kissed the bride.
46. Boxing Them Out
I’m a dude, but I witnessed something worth sharing.
I was in a non-bachelorette party-friendly restaurant, and a bachelorette party shows up. Totally stereotypical party too: sashes and tiaras, lots of shrieking, etc.
They were doing one of those scavenger hunts where they have to get a guy to go to the bathroom and steal their undergarments.
I’m standing there and they come up to this dude standing near me and ask for his boxers. He says, “If I do, will you leave?”
They say yes, and the dude sets his beverage down, takes off his boxers right there, hands them to the girls in the party, who are losing their minds, puts his pants back on and returns to his conversation.
The dude didn’t have to buy another beverage for the rest of the night.
45. I Shouldn’t…But I Do
Went to my SO’s cousin’s bachelorette party. All was going well, plenty of stuff on the go… people seem to be enjoying themselves. The members of her family (and by extension – mine) that were 50+ leave for home. The bride-to-be waits approximately 3 minutes after they exit to take herself, the maid of honor and the “male entertainment representative” into her bedroom. The bride’s other best friend cranks the music to drown out the unabashed noise floating from her bedroom window. The entire party of 35-40 friends & extended family sit around in disbelief at what is transpiring; I assume attempting to ignore or otherwise dismiss the reality of the situation.
45 minutes and multiple guest departures later, the bride-to-be and maid of honour emerge from the room noticeably sated; the entertainer tucking his shirt back into his pants. Less than 5 minutes later the husband-to-be arrives, fresh from his (I hear, relatively clean-cut) bucks night. Wife pecks him on the lips & bids him goodnight… returning to her shocked party guests and making as if nothing happened with a wink in my direction and a quiet admonition to keep it on the “DL” for her.
44. A Little Too Far…
I worked in a photo lab. Normally it was cats and houses in the pics.
But then a woman dropping of a few rolls of film was acting oddly. This is usually a clear sign that the pictures were going to be interesting.
It was a bachelorette party, normal stuff at first. The women were all fairly pretty.
Then a safari themed male dancer was being featured.
The pictures show most of the women at the party getting freaky with the dancer.
Then the dancer got the bride getting really close to him.
Then the pics were in a bedroom.
The last photo was something that doesn’t need to be explained…
43. Quite The Kicker
A dancer tried to do a cool move where he did a roundhouse over another girl’s head. Except he kicked her. She got a concussion and was sick in a trash bag the entire limo ride to the hospital.
42. Creep Alert
A good friend of mine had a drink spilled on her at my bachelorette party. The guy was weird, but brought her over another drink since he had ruined hers. Anyway, turns out the guy put something in her drink (we didn’t know it at the time), tried to do the same to mine (bought me a drink that I had no intention of drinking because he was weird), and swarmed around all the girls at my party for the rest of the night until I finally convinced security to kick him out. THANKFULLY there were a ton of really nice guys there that kept him away from us and helped us to watch our now out-of-sorts friend.
41. Is That My Baby?
The bride to be whose Indian had an Asian dancer who she became intimate with that night without protection. She married her white husband and was immediately pregnant. It was the dancer’s baby. She ended up being divorced.
40. Cool As A Cucumber
We carved parts of the body out of giant cucumber using only our teeth. The cucumbers were then judged. The most realistic won.
39. Ride Of Shame
Limo driver here. First off, the cleanup on a bachelorette party is a lot worse than a bachelor party. I’ve cleaned up every sort of questionable product I can imagine. The guys usually just leave some cans or bottles in the cars.
Weirdest thing I’ve ever seen? The girls invited me in and hey, why not. Free soda and no cover because I was driving them. The 21-year-old bride to be was apparently a sheltered kid, religious school and all that. She somehow wound up on stage, being danced around by a drag performer, and had more dollar bills plucked out off her clothing by drag queens than I would’ve ever guessed. She then got pulled off of the stage by security when she started to undo some top buttons. Nice quiet ride home until she got sick in the cooler.
38. Go With The Float
I was getting a ferry over to an island off the coast of Ireland to attend a summer college, and on the ferry was a large group of bachelorettes. We knew it was a bridal party because they were a bunch of skittish 30-something women with pink sashes and headbands—and because they’d brought a seven-foot-tall inflatable *cough* body part with them.
It was definitely ready for the trip.
When we were pulling out of the harbor, the captain of the boat came on the PA to run through the safety checks with us. He got to the point of telling us where to find flotation devices in case of an emergency, only for the blushing bride-to-be to bellow, “WE BROUGHT OUR OWN!!!” and wildly wiggle the giant thing.
I dearly wish I could have attended that party.
37. Babysitting Bridesmaids
I’m a male bartender on weekends. A bus rolls up to my workplace. It’s really early, like 7:30 pm. ( we aren’t packing them in until 11:30-12 usually). A whole pack of 30-40-year-old women rolls in. They announce to me who is getting married blah blah. Thank god no one else was there. I proceeded to pour many many beverages for them. The group is attractive and the bride-to-be is a very petite cutie.
After about an hour, they start trying to get on the stage in back and I’m running around trying to get them back. Next thing you know, the bride-to-be falls. I help her up and was greeted with projectile grossness all over the front of me. I was not pleased. So I slowly start loading them back into their party bus. As it pulls out, I rush inside to grab someone to watch my stop so I could go change. As I’m coming out the bus pulls back up and the bride-to-be gives me her number. Are you serious? Terrible night.
36. Baby On Board
I work in a venue that at times (against my wishes) caters to bachelorette parties. Fifteen Australian women with Russian heritage buying too many beverages whilst dancing with the worst male dancer I have ever seen. An eight-month pregnant guest was very close to said gentleman. I need a new job.
35. Not Family Friendly
Not so much crazy as tasteless: I routinely see gals having these parties on restaurant patios waving adult products around and screeching in full view of families with kids.
Take it inside!
34. Guard-Dog Groom
The groom-to-be decided he didn’t want to let the bride out of his sight so he attended the bachelorette party. He had too much and punched the bride’s younger brother in the face.
33. Doorman Duties
I worked as a doorman and got asked by a bridal party to be their stand-in dancer. I said no because I had a girlfriend… apparently the wrong answer. For the rest of the night, they would yell stuff at me and try and push me when they walked by. It was really odd. They even brought out the bride and asked, “You wouldn’t get on this?” I said, “No, I love my girlfriend.” Just a strange, strange night.
32. Wild, Wild West
I’ve only been to one bachelorette party, but it was pretty weird. We went hopping place to place on a school bus in rural western NY (picture the travel time between places: about 20 minutes). Don’t get me wrong, it was awesome, but it took a weird turn as we were leaving the last one. One of the girls convinced the local handsome cowboy (so called because he always wears a cowboy hat… and is handsome) to perform for us on the school bus in exchange for a ride home. What followed was the most uncomfortable, hesitant, and awkward performance a school bus has ever seen.
He was hot though, so whatever.
31. The Wrong Groom
We were in Vegas. Long story short, the bride-to-be was so gone, she left her bachelorette party, disappeared, and returned the next day married to some old guy.
30. Pretty Nippy Out
It wasn’t a bachelorette party that I was at, I was just out with my girlfriends when I was on exchange in the UK and ran across a hen party who were all wearing nothing but their undergarments out in the street. Which, whatever, if you wanna do that then OK, but it was seven degrees Celsius outside.
29. Tying More Than The Knot
I was visiting the Bay of Islands in New Zealand for the day and strolled through the hostel in the tiny town to find a place to eat for lunch. It was the middle of the day and a bachelorette party was in full force: a group of women, one of them wearing a veil and a crown made of questionably shaped things, all laughing while walking down the street. I find a place to eat, eat, and leave. On my way back to the hostel, I see the bride-to-be blindfolded, tied to a lamppost, with the crown still on her head. None of her friends were around.
28. Tossing In The Flag
I’ve only been to one so far and it was my cousin’s. We went out in San Luis Obispo. The only crazy thing was two guys were about to fight and one of the bridesmaids pulled out a ring toss game that made the guys stop fighting and then made them play.
27. The Pie Guy
There’s someone named “The Pie Guy” here in LA. You can’t and won’t find him in a phone book, on Yelp, or anywhere else. Word of mouth deal. He shows up at your party with a stockade and plenty of pies, puts himself in, and then you smear pies on his face and body and talk back at him.
A friend of mine, the now-wife of a pretty famous rock star, had him at her bachelorette party. She has a rep for curating the most bizarre things possible. Did not disappoint/achievement unlocked. He was loathe to leave, got really weird (which is saying something?) and I chased him out of the party.
26. Hopping Outta There
This was about seven years ago. One female party attendee disappears for roughly 15 minutes in a fancy hotel suite. She soon walks through the door wearing a candy undergarment and a rabbit helmet. Nothing else. Gives bachelorette a dance. The candy rabbit is upwards of 300 pounds. I called my cab and went home. The end.
25. A Little Too Hands On
In New Orleans our bachelor group found a bachelorette group and started talking/dancing etc.
It was late in the night at this time, and our bachelor was dancing with their bachelorette mostly at the urging of the bridesmaids because they thought it would be “cute”. Not too long into it he gets belligerently handsy.
I didn’t see the act but spun around when one of the bridesmaids hollered, “Your bachelor just touched our bachelorette!”…we bounced immediately.
24. Getting To The Punch Line
I’m not a woman or a part of the bachelorette, but I was there for the insanity. I work at a comedy club. I don’t understand why people think it’s a great idea to go celebrate their event here, which is pretty much like live theatre, with 200 other people watching a show.
Anyway, this bachelorette party came in on a party bus, and made sure everyone knew that they planned to get “WILD AND CRAY-ZAY WOOOOOH!” They’re annoying and disrupting the show. We escort them out, because like any respectable comedy club, we care about the comedian’s act. We do not tolerate heckling or people trying to be “part of the show”.
These monsters do all sorts of tactics. Some go out to try to fight the manager. One girl held onto her chair and refused to budge. One girl was found sleeping in the bathroom. One girl fell on her face outside. One girl called the cops. We force them all outside, while the cops (who is also a lady) is threatening our bartender for giving them too much to drink.
The twist: we didn’t give them anything. They walked through the doors like that.
23. Chippendale-Type Situation
Not incredibly crazy, but while attending my first bachelorette party I was pretty disgusted by the situation. I’d always been an open person, but the idea of a bunch of old-ish women who are related getting excited over a paid adult dancer kind of weirded me out. Moving on… maybe it was because I was the only girl not digging it, but he paid attention to only me. He was relentless. I finally agreed to something just so he’d move on and leave me alone, and as luck would have it, I chipped my front tooth somehow. Needless to say, I was not happy about it.
22. Hit And Fun
At my own bachelorette party, my mother-in-law got behind the wheel when she was a little too under the influence and rear-ended my maid-of-honor. My maid-of-honor is a cop.
21. Taking Her Shot
A friend of mine wanted to go to Olive Garden for her bachelorette dinner, whatever. Her mom is severely obese and pretty much didn’t have a care about it. She, herself, ate an entire order of calamari, about ten breadsticks, and four or five salads. Then ordered the Tour of Italy… which is pretty much three dinner entrees in one. Finished it all.
Afterward, we start getting our tickets and her mom decides it’s time for some different types of beverages. Thank God, I seriously needed one. Her daughters (the bride and her two sisters) start singing a song by those two idiots and Lil’ Jon. I look over and her mother is pulling up her shirt and giving herself an insulin shot.
At dinner. In a restaurant. They all acted like this was a normal thing.
Needless to say, I told them my boss texted me and said I needed to work at six a.m. the next day.
20. Dry Bar
No substances of any kind. It was crazy. We pretended to be youngsters and partake in innocent and dreary things.
19. Attention Grabber
Well, I was just a witness, but I guess you can say what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. I was in Vegas at a dance place with my college roommate. We witnessed about three bachelorette parties, but one stuck out in particular. We call her “Crazy Bridesmaid”. Two of the parties paid to sit in the VIP section where they are guaranteed some action. This party did not. But this bridesmaid was determined to get her bride to have a dance, so she grabs at every dancer that walked by. She got increasingly frustrated, and then eventually gets so frustrated that she gets out of her seat, chases one down, and tries to physically pull this 6’4″ dude around, to which he swiftly ignored her. People sitting around her laughed. The bride was so angry; she proceeded to get kicked out because she decided to lite her lighter, which was prohibited. The show was so peaceful (or rather, less distracting) without her.
18. Touched By Art
While on Fremont Street some bachelorette party girl walked up to my friend’s wife (who seriously could pass for 12 years old) and pokes her in the face a few times with her bachelorette balloon hat.
17. Putting On A Show
I used to swing both ways and my first lover was a very close friend. So we were at another good friend’s bachelorette party when we had way too much. As usual, we got a bit frisky and went to a quiet room to take care of things so we wouldn’t disturb anyone. Found out the next day that the blinds had been open the entire time and people had been able to see us doing our thing… not a great memory.
My sister-in-law was the worst bridezilla-to-be. She didn’t like that her friends ”weren’t paying attention” to her—there were 50 people, we were bound to break up into groups anyway.
She called up this guy she used to cheat on her now-husband with. That other guy is a famous racecar driver. He comes over, they sneak off, she comes back, cries about us ruining her wedding and calls her hubby to call off the wedding. Fortunately, I stopped this, by getting the other guy out of there and calling hubby to come get her. I told him she’s had too many. My sister-in-law never thanked me for not telling him and ruining their marriage… even though I’m pretty sure once someone better than him comes along, she will run off with him and file for divorce. It doesn’t look good, a year into it.
15. Can’t Bear Anymore
I don’t know, I left when the guy in the bear suit started being weird.
14. Big Baby
No lie: a male dancer dressed as a baby. The most depressing thing you could think of.
Here was this fine Native American dude, long straight hair, body to die for, and smooth brown skin… in footie pajamas and a bonnet. Worst of all, he had a plastic baby bottle.
Worst. Bachelorette. Party. Ever.
13. Moms Gone Wild
I was a former male dancer. Bachelorette parties are, by far, way worse than bachelor parties. There’s nothing worse than a stay-at-home mother when she gets an opportunity to hang out with her friends, drink, and have some random guy be all over her… just saying… from experience.
12. Granny’s Panties
My (married) aunt (also a mother of two children) was so done, she grabbed a 21-year-old kid and started making out with him. She told him she needed his undergarments as part of a bachelorette scavenger hunt, and he tells her she can have them if he can have hers. She agrees and they exchange right there.
After adjusting herself, the kid comes back and tells her she “can keep these” and hands her back a pair of old red stained undergarments. Oops.
11. Hootin’ And Hollerin’
After getting kicked out of a family restaurant for blowing up a giant inflatable balloon, we took the bachelorette, a former Hooters waitress, to the world’s lamest place. It had a bucking bronco and ladders on the tabletop to encourage people to dance on it.
Naturally, we all got up to dance on it, and one of the bachelorette’s coworkers had the bright idea to yank down the bachelorette’s top, in front of everyone. My friend was humiliated and burst into tears. Another friend and I helped her down from the bar and lead her to a corner of the club so she could recover.
Two smooth dudes, having seen my friend’s (admittedly excellent) top, made their way over and tried to put the moves on her. Please note my friend was still crying and wearing one of those cheap wedding veils people wear at their bachelorette parties. It was very obvious she was not only not single, but also really upset. We told them to go away. Several times. Somehow, they couldn’t figure out they weren’t going to get anywhere and were hanging around like a bad smell.
Then I spotted it: the giant inflatable balloon, which somehow had not been abandoned in all the drama. I picked it up and started hitting these idiots over the head with it. Not hard enough to hurt them—it was, after all, an inflatable balloon—but insistently. The look of real fear on their faces as they were hustling away from us was something I’ll never forget.
10. Fatal Fantasy
My friend’s mom used to be a paramedic and she answered a call that started as a few of this woman’s friends who hired dancer to kidnap her and take her to this place where they had an evening planned for her bachelorette party. As the guy attempted to take her and put her in his car, she pulled some crazy self-defence and the guy ended up passing away. No charges were pressed on anybody due to the unusual circumstances of the case.
9. Milking The Situation
I’m a limo driver. I drove a large group of women to their bachelorette. The bride-to-be was large, at least 300 pounds. The girls drag her on stage and they do an almost creepy dance routine. It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.
8. Truly Tragic Ending
I had a cousin in the military that was about to marry his high school sweetheart. The day before he was to get back from deployment, she had a “bachelorette party” (just her and three or four of her long-time friends) and was heading home when an inebriated driver crossed the center line and hit her head on. She was killed instantly. The inebriated driver was barely injured. They were supposed to get married the next day, like from the airport to the courthouse. Instead, he was met by both families to give him the bad news.
I went to Vegas for a bachelor party and his mother decided to tag along (she was financing it all anyway). She convinced the groom to get intimate with an adult film star. We later found out she paid to exclusively come be with him so she could guilt him into telling the bride thus stopping the wedding. It worked.
6. Addressing The Issue
At the bachelorette party, all of the soon-to-be wife’s friends realized that none of them had even bought or planned dresses for the wedding yet.
This was after a year-long engagement. The party was two months before the wedding.
5. Shameful Celebration
The bride came to the bar asking if we had seen the groom as he was needed for some photographs or cutting the cake. None of the staff had seen him so she went outside, only to return a few minutes later in tears. She had caught the groom getting with the maid of honor… her sister. An all-out family war commenced with extra guests just sitting there enjoying the buffet. The worst part was hearing the bride cry, “I can’t believe this happened again.” I really felt bad for her because she was lovely.
4. Going The Distance
Three years ago, I was in the wedding party, bought the stupid bridesmaid’s dress (paid in full, will never wear it), shower gift, bachelorette party in Atlantic City, etc. Can you feel my rage?
Jerk fiancé goes to the bachelor party in Cancun. Comes back seeming… off. A few days go by and he tells her he’s not ready to get married and he has gone ahead and canceled all vendors for the said wedding, needs a week to think things over. Then falls off the grid. In her panic, she pulled his credit card records and finds a plane ticket to London the day prior.
He met a girl in Cancun, canceled the wedding, then went to London to visit her the very next week. My poor friend, I thought. Wrong…
In response she started messing with a married man, the wife found out, there was a huge fallout, and it was a public embarrassment (married man was her boss in a notoriously nepotistic school district).
In the end, the original jerk and my friend got back together, got married about two months ago, and she is now pregnant. The moral of this story is that people are crazy and can only hope to find someone as crazy as them to live with.
3. Storm’s Brewing
My friend’s cousin was getting married, and she went to his fiancée’s bachelorette party. They went to one of those “Thunder Down Under” type of shows. Long story short, the girl getting married got with one of the performers they hired. The wedding was canceled.
2. Dodged A Bullet
I was two weeks away from getting married. My ex went off with her friends for the bachelorette party. At two in the morning, I got an email from the maid of honor. It was supposed to be sent to her friends and my name was accidentally selected. The email contained a video of my bride-to-be engaging in promiscuous acts with a performer. The next day, we were supposed to finalize some plans. When the bride-to-be and maid of honor showed up to pick me up, I just pointed at the computer. My bride went pale; then spent the next eight hours attempting to explain what was going on. Then, it turned into a horrible mistake. I think at some point I blacked out because I had started having beverages right after seeing the video and just didn’t stop.
1. Sweeping It Under The Rug
At a work retreat a few years back, the bride-to-be brought her fiancé along with her since they were only two weeks out from the wedding and had some planning to do. The nights after she, along with all of her co-workers, catch him getting with another guy at the bar. It was never talked about and they got married two weeks later. I still can’t imagine seeing your future husband cheat on you (and possibly be into the opposite gender?) and still go through with it. Apparently now he still does this, and she just pretends it isn’t happening. She was only 22.
