Stag Party Tickets


Always Together, Forever.

January 18, 2010 Jack & Jills

 They do everything together; vacationing, outings, the whole nine.  Why not plan the perfect Jack and Jill party for the pair who is always in sync?  Let’s not confuse this with the engagement party.  After all, the engagement party primarily involves each family in commemorating the couple’s engagement; it’s a meet-and-greet for both families and ultimately, it’s about parents welcoming a future son or daughter-in-law.  The engagement gathering is the official annunciation of the wedding.  But unlike the engagement party, the Jack and Jill is more relaxed; it can involve family, but it is mostly the couple’s friends who plan such a gathering for the soon-to-be spouses! 

Unlike your typical bachelor or bachelorette, the Jack and Jill is shared between the couple!  Jack and Jill Party CelebrationBut like a bachelor/bachelorette, the event is to raise money for the wedding.  That being said, the last few blog posts about suggested bachelor party ideas can be considered, but of course, the bride’s input should count too.  I mean, if she likes sports as does her groom-to-be, then a night out to a sports bar could work… but the message here is that both men and women need to be enticed in the party’s direction.

 First thing you need to consider are guest numbers.  This will be an event with double the amount of people when you think about it; both the bride’s and the groom’s friends will be invited!  You will want to consider a venue that can accommodate up to 40+ guests.  Also, you may want to consider jack and jill tickets specially designed for the kind of event with the focus on it being a bit more formalized than your typical stag or stagette since both the bride and groom will be involved.  Make it clear that this event will not be your typical ‘wild party’ in celebrating singleton, but rather a time to celebrate with friends and share in many memories before the couple says ‘I do.’

Just because it’s not a guys’ night out, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!  There are a wide range of themes that are associated with Jack and Jill parties such as a Western Theme, Moulin Rouge, and many more that are exciting for both men and women and at the same time aren’t too overly extravagant.  Consider raffles and prizes.  An idea would be to attach a perforated raffle ticket with a number to each invitation.  If there are any business owners in your group of friends, suggest they donate gift baskets from their companies for the giveaway.  Holding a mini auction to auction-off some of the donated gift baskets are a great way to raise money for the bride and groom.  Another money-raising idea (and quite fun, too!) is to have guests purchase game tickets or coupons upon entering (which you can have specially designed for the type of event).  Include several activities sectioned off in different areas of the venue and each guest would need to purchase game coupons/tickets in order to participate!

 Overall, the Stag and Stagette is meant for the couple – as the team they were always meant to be – to raise money in an innovative way for their wedding and new life together.  A recommendation for this special event (since it is more formal) would be to provide Thank You gifts/cards for each guest/family as a way to thank them for attending and giving their support.
