Plan a joint bachelor/bachelorette party to a vineyard or microbrewery

Grooms, if you dare break the 1st rule of stag weekend (no women allowed); you better have something unique planned. Believe it or not, co-ed bachelor parties that include the groom, the bride, and the rest of the wedding party can be a hit if pulled off the right way. Wine and beer tastings are something that both sexes can get excited about. Depending on whether you live in an area rich with vineyards, they make a very acceptable co-ed bachelor(ette) party. Now this may come as a surprise, but you don’t have to be in the Napa Valley to make this trip a reality. Washington, Oregon, Missouri and many other parts of the country are churning out incredible wines today. And it seems like there are microbreweries in just about every region of the country as well.

If you’re a Best Man or Maid of Honor setting up a tasting trip, here are some tips: •Do your research. Find an area with multiple wineries or breweries. •Call ahead and make sure your choices can accommodate larger groups. •Rent a bus or trolley that can take everyone from stop to stop. This can get pricey, so ask everyone to chip in a few bucks to lessen the burden on you. This one is important so everyone can get around safely. •Plan lunch and dinner stops along the way. The last thing you want is half of the group being passed out after the 2nd stop (then again, if they can’t keep up why are you friends with them in the first place?) • If it’s an overnight trip, book a hotel (*use the Orbitz widget on our Honeymoons page to get the best deal possible!) well in advance. If you’re going home, make sure you have safe transportation for everyone. •Have the guests chip in at each stop and buy a bottle for the newlyweds-to-be. This will be a great way for them to remember the incredible time they had on this trip. We’ve love to hear what the readers of The Savvy Scoop think about this idea and co-ed bachelor parties in general. Let us know in the comments section below!
