About This Quiz

Today, bachelorette parties (and the planning that goes into them) are almost as big as weddings themselves. From plastic engagement rings and “bride” sashes to weekend getaways and lingerie gifts, bachelorette soirées are an entire industry. Not to mention a huge part of pop culture. Who hasn't seen “Bridesmaids?”

So, it might surprise you to learn bachelorette parties are a fairly recent addition to the wedding scene. While bridal showers and engagement parties are nothing new, bachelorette parties didn't become a major trend until the 1980s. Before then, who knows how the penis-straw industry was surviving!

Deciding they didn't want the boys to have all the fun, women started throwing bachelorette parties for soon-to-be-married ladies. Unlike the standard drunken debauchery of bachelor parties, bachelorette festivities tend to reflect the personality of the bride. If she's wild and crazy, then by all means, body shots and male strippers are appropriate. But if she's chic and subtle, might an evening at the theater be a bitter fit?

To find out what bachelorette party you will have, we challenge you to first plan an elaborate wedding. Answer our questions about centerpieces, guest lists and white dresses, and we'll tell you the best kind of bachelorette bash to celebrate the end of your days as a single woman!
