Stag parties. I want one.

Monday, May 26, 2008

This past Saturday, my cousin got married and the BF had an all day bachelor party for a friend back home that he only made it to for the first part -- the golf outing. This was no ordinary golf outing though. He had a bachelor party/golf outing/stag party where all of the groom's friends made money for him throughout the night.

What the F is this about?
Why the hell don't girls do this?

Girl bridal shower
Typically, a combination of women sit around in some rented hall or someone's house and open crock pots, kitchen utensils and Oreck vacuum cleaners from bridal registries. We know what we are getting. Hello! No surprise factor there. Plus, sometimes these showers are long. I mean, we are talking 1 hour to 1.5 hours of opening straight presents. Just presents!!! And, showers somehow end up being in the middle of the day. More than likely around 1 to 2 p.m. That way, you can't really get anything major done in the first part of your day because you have to head to the party in the middle of the day.

Guy Bachelor party/stag party
They not only get to drink (a lot), they get to make money via gambling/golfing/some type of betting. Plus, I learned today that guys sometimes have this stag party and then have a separate bachelor party. Twice the fun!

While boys are off galvanting playing poker or drunk driving golf carts, we are sitting in a room with pink and white netting/lace decorations eating those little mints opening up presents that we know we are getting!

The BF told me at his brother's bachelor party AKA lottery for boys he made $4,000.
WHAT IS THAT! I want to make $4,000 just hanging out and drinking with my friends.

We need to revise the wedding shower. No more mints, little wrapped favors or homemade cookies. The more alcohol the better. And let's move it to night time. My vote goes for 5 or 6 p.m.
