A bachelorette party was first intended to be a celebration of a bride-to-be for her and her friends, the bachelorettes. As time has gone on, more and more bachelorette parties seem to be a way to get one last "hurrah" in before the bride ties the knot. While bachelor parties typically get the rap of being the wildest, bachelorettes are the new front-runners for having the craziest parties. These days, most bachelorette parties aren't complete without dozens of phallic shaped objects and a whole lot of tequila. With all that tequila, there are bound to be some insane stories to go along with the parties. Here are 16 bachelorette party stories that will blow your mind and might make you reconsider what you have planned for a bachelorette party.
16 Worst. Stripper. Ever.
This almost sounds like it could have been a bit from a Jackass movie, but unfortunately for these bachelorettes, it was all too real. While in Miami for a friend's bachelorette, the bridesmaids decided to surprise the bride by hiring a stripper to come to their hotel room. The stripper showed up in yellow-stained, saggy, underwear, and was so sweaty you could smell him from across the room. When he danced on top of them, his sweat dripped all over them and they all had to shower again before they went out. Yuck!
15 Raging Bull
This 59-year-old woman was on her fourth marriage and wanted to have some fun before she tied the knot. Now, she'll never get to live it down! Her daughters took her to a bar that had an electronic bull, and of course, the bride decided she had to take it for a spin. All was fine, until a local website that posts pictures of drunken people doing funny things caught her in the act. Now, her picture is forever on their website, much to her husband's dismay.
14 A Good Idea Gone Bad
A bridesmaid tried to do something unique for her bestie's bachelorette party and well, it certainly wasn't your run of the mill party. She decided to hire a nude male model rather than a male stripper, and the evening would begin with the bachelorettes and bride sketching him. It started off innocently, but after bottles of champagne were consumed, the group got wild. The maid of honor decided to get in on the action and stripped totally naked and sat on the model's lap so she could be sketched, too.
13 Isn't It Ironic?
This girl probably shouldn't have been engaged to a guy she knew she was "never really happy" with, but at least she didn't go through with the wedding...with him anyways! She knew their chemistry wasn't off the charts, but he was great on paper so it seemed she would never find anything better...until her bachelorette party. She noticed a really hot guy on the dance floor and they ended up having a dance off with him. She realized that this type of fun stuff is what she had been missing with her fiancé, and she ended up calling off her engagement. Fast forward 13 years, and she's celebrating a 13-year marriage with her dance partner.
12 Rough Start
There are reasons bachelor and bachelorette parties are usually held separately from each other, and this is one of them! One bride thought it would be fun to crash her future husband's bachelor party with her bachelorettes. They showed up at the strip club the groom and groomsmen were at, and immediately the atmosphere was awkward. The bride actually got up on stage and started taking off her clothes, much to her fiance's dismay. A couple years later, they were divorced.
11 The Newest Member of the Entourage
Running into celebrities is one way to make sure you never forget an event, and this bachelorette party will go down in history because of it! While celebrating a friend's bachelorette party in Vegas (where else?), one bachelorette noticed the cast of Entourage in a roped off section of the bar. She ended up working her way into their group and ended up spending the night with them. Later, she went back to one of the actor's hotel rooms for an unforgettable night, but she won't share which!
10 Up in Flames
Everyone wants to look hot, but to actually catch on fire, especially before your wedding day? That's not so hot. Tequila, open flames, and hairspray are never a good combination, but a bachelorette at a Mexican restaurant calls for all of those things! The bride-to-be had enjoyed several margaritas, and she leaned over the table...right into a candle that lit her hair on fire. All the hairspray in her hair fed the flames, and so did the vodka tonic she threw on herself. Luckily, a neighboring table threw ice on her head and the story had a much happier ending than it could have! The restaurant even comped her bill. Score!
9 The Forgotten Bride
It's never nice to leave a friend behind, but leaving a friend who's the bride-to-be behind is even worse. Hopefully, this bride got some great wedding shower gifts to make up for it! When the bride and her friends arrived in Vegas for her bachelorette, there was already tension. Half the group wanted to party on a budget, and the other half wanted to go all out. Instead of compromising they ended up splitting into two groups. The problem was, each group thought the bride was with the other. In truth, she was left at the hotel by herself. Understandably, the bride was so mad she booked her own hotel room so she didn't have to stay with her fighting friends.
8 Break a Leg
Pole dancing lessons are a fun idea for a bachelorette party, but if you're going to try out your moves at a bar, maybe do it before you've had too much to drink. After spending hours on a bar crawl, the whole group was full of alcohol and bad ideas. One of the bachelorettes was bragging about her pole dancing skills, and she couldn't resist showing them off when they got to one bar that had the perfect column for pole dancing. Things went from bad to worse when she smacked her shin on the column and broke her leg!
7 Another Reason To Keep Parties Separate
If you think your friends are going to make you do some wild things at your bachelorette party, maybe ask them to make sure your groom doesn't show up and get the wrong idea, first. These bridesmaids gave the bride a list of R-rated things she had to do at her bachelorette party, and one of them was having guys sign her cleavage at various bars. The groom showed up to surprise his bride and saw she was covered in other guys' signatures. He accused her of cheating and a screaming match ensued. The wedding was almost called off, but luckily they worked it out.
6 I Want Candy
Luckily, the groom hasn't found out what the bride was up to at her bachelorette party, or there might not have been a wedding after all. One of her bridesmaids made the bride a "Suck for a Buck" t-shirt, that had candy placed where her boobs would be. The bridesmaid assumed the bride would be too embarrassed to actually wear the shirt, but she was all for it. Perhaps a little too much, because she ended up making out with one of the guys who paid a buck for a suck...Hopefully he paid extra!
5 Spilling the Beans
Maybe it would have been a better idea to just invite the mother-of-the-bride to the bridal shower, rather than the bachelorette party too. At least now she knows what her daughter has been up to! The mother-of-the-bride assumed her daughter was still a virgin, but then one of the bridesmaids made a seemingly innocent comment that gave the bride up, and her mother was horrified. It didn't help when another bridesmaid brought out a cake with a protruding banana that the bride was supposed to devour.
4 Joy Ride
Hijacking the bachelorette party limo, especially when you're drunk, is a good way to get yourself kicked out of a bridal party. Maybe that's what this bridesmaid wanted, after all. When one bridesmaid hit the bottle a little (or a lot) too hard, she hopped in the driver's seat of the limo they had hired while he was having a smoke break. She drove her fellow bridesmaids around the parking lot while they screamed in fear telling her to stop. As soon as she stopped driving, she was kicked out of the wedding.
3 Logistical Error
We've learned combining the bachelor and bachelorette parties is usually a bad idea, and apparently, having them just across the street from each other is too. Oops! The maid of honour booked a hotel room on Bourbon Street in New Orleans that had an awesome patio. The best man also booked a hotel on Bourbon Street in New Orleans with an awesome patio... and the two groups ended up facing each other. Kind of defeats the purpose of having separate bachelor and bachelorette parties, doesn't it?
2 Here Comes Trouble
Nothing like celebrating an upcoming marriage by having the whole bridal party cheat on their partners! Right? Well, when one bridal party hit up New Orleans for a fun night out, things got a bit too crazy. Every member of the bridal party was either married or had a serious boyfriend, and each woman ended up making out with a random guy that night! Each woman did the right thing by coming clean to their partner, but it didn't come without a lot of tears!
1 Unlucky Party
The maid of honor must have had a lot of explaining to do after she planned what sounds like the bachelorette party from hell. She didn't check with the bride or the other bridesmaids for what they'd like to do at the party, and instead made a reservation at a really expensive strip club. Everyone but the planner was really uncomfortable and angry about having to spend their money on overpriced food, drinks, and strippers.
