Something that came up as we were going through the list of 'traditional' ones was, "babe, are we going to have a Bachelorette? Two Bachelorettes?". Stereotypical visions of Bachelorettes flashed across our eyes, and we recoiled. But I didn't want to scrap it all together - I still kinda longed for something to replace it.
"So," I said to her, "what if we framed it differently? Picture... an adventure with our closest friends before we tie the knot, that has that extra celebratory sparkle in the air?" Now, THAT was a party we could get on board with.
The Bach Party was born.
