When should we have the bachelor/ette party?

Smart Party Scheduling

Though outdated tradition dictated that bachelor/ette parties be given the night before the wedding, it's not a smart idea, especially if alcohol is involved. A lot of time, money and effort have gone into making the wedding day as perfect as possible, and having a tired/hungover bride and/or groom will ruin the entire day. Be smart and have the parties a week or two before the wedding.
