Bachelorette parties are a right of passage: They are the bride’s last hurrah, so to speak, before becoming officially wed. They are the perfect time for the bridal party to get together and let loose, to enjoy themselves after months of stressful planning and preparing. Some brides opt for a calm, relaxing spa day as a way to treat her friends. Others choose to go the more traditional, chaotic route of a certain beverage-infused vacation, whether it be to a tropical island or somewhere like Vegas.
When you get a group of women together to go out for a good time, there are bound to be some memorable moments. However, you add in drinks, some “inappropriate” decorations, and the looming marriage of the bride, and it’s bound to get to a next-level of crazy. Just take it from these women who recently shared some of the craziest things they’ve seen on a bachelorette party.
56. Don’t Touch Me
55. Wolf In The Henhouse
54. This One Actually Involves A Smart Decision
53. Was His Stage Name Willy Wonka?
At a bachelorette party where the stripper dipped his junk in chocolate and went around to each women expecting someone to give it a taste. Everyone refused.
52. The Shaving Cream Sells It
51. At Least It Happened Before The Wedding
A family friend had his bachelor party the same night his fiancee had her bachelorette party, two weeks before the wedding. Around midnight, the two parties met up and everyone parties together. The best man keeps buying shots for the groom-to-be, who gets falling-down hammered.
The bride-to-be gets upset and worried, so the best man drives the two of them home. My friends passes out on his couch and wakes up at sunrise to find his bride-to-be and best man hooking up in his bed.
50. That’s Atlantic City For You
49. They Both Got A Tip
48. The Bald Truth
47. The First Rule Of A No-Hitter Is You Don’t Talk About A No-Hitter
46. 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.
45. I Don’t Know How You Can Possibly Forgive That
44. 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.
43. Give Me Your Underwear
42. Beth’s Mom Takes The Party Way Too Far
41. Good Thing Her Family Was There
40. 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.
39. Boxing Them Out
I’m a dude, but I witnessed something worth sharing.
I was in a non-bachelorette party friendly restaurant, and one 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 at 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.
38. 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 honour 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.
37. 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…
36. 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.
35. 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.
34. 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.
33. 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.
32. 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.
31. 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.
30. 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.
29. 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.
28. 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!
27. 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.
26. 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.
25. 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.
24. 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.
23. 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.
22. Bride Wars
I was at a bachelorette party where the bride thumb wrestled the server for drinks.
21. 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.
20. 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.
19. 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.
18. 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.
17. 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.
16. 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.
15. 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.
14. 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.
13. 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.
12. Dry Bar
No substances of any kind. It was crazy. We pretended to be youngsters and partake in innocent and dreary things.
11. 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.
10. 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.
9. 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.
7. Can’t Bear Anymore
I don’t know, I left when the guy in the bear suit started being weird.
6. Everyone Is Perfect
5. 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.
4. Maid Of Dishonor
3. 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.
2. 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.
1. 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.
