The Jack and Jill Party Planner

March 26, 2010 Jack & Jills, Unique Party Ideas

Increasing in popularity are the Jack and Jill parties.  Unlike the formal engagement party with solely the bride and groom’s families meeting and celebrating in the couple’s love; the soon-to-be-spouses team-up and join forces with their bachelor and bachelorette parties for a night of fun, entertainment and of course, embarrassing stories!  For those involved with planning the Jack and Jill or as some would call it, the ‘Stag and Doe,’ be prepared to throw a big party as an event like this would involve many people – the bride’s and groom’s friends and families.  The event should most likely be held at a small banquet hall due to the large amount of attendees and consider a disk jockey be present to keep the party pumping all night long.  Games should be taken into consideration, particularly raffle or door prizes, in which funds go to assist the bride and groom with their wedding and new life together.

When considering a theme for the Jack and Jill party, please be sure the theme is compatible for both men and women.  Having a jack and Jill centered around, say, a ‘football-and-wings’ theme may not go over well with some of the ladies at the party.  Take each guest into consideration but keep it fun – have games, raffles (as mentioned earlier) and no Jack and Jill is complete without some embarrassing stories about the Bride and Groom, so delegate a few friends to say some speeches! 

Some themes you may want to consider are a Hawaiian Luau, Casino Night Party, Western Theme, and many others – try to stick to each theme as much as possible from the food choices to the centre pieces and even the festivities!  You want to keep guests entertained all night long and enjoying every bit of it!  Stick to the theme with colours, décor and style …even with your wardrobe as the host(s)!  If you have a “Hollywood Oscars Night” theme let’s say, invite your guests to come dressed as their favorite celebrities or have them arrive wearing evening gowns and suits.  The party invitation should reflect the theme very well – if you’re going to go with the Hollywood theme, get snazzy VIP-style invitations made to really set the mood of the event.  You can draw inspiration from movies based on whichever theme you decide.

The Jack and Jill party is a bit cleaner as it is not a typical bachelor/bachelorette party with the usual adult content.  Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are centered around having the future Bride or Groom enjoy their final days as a single person by dancing with the opposite sex, or going to a strip club and so on. One thing that you should think about is the possibility of inviting children to this event since it is more friends-and-family oriented and may not run very late into the night.  Having said that, you might want to have a children’s table set up complete with loot bags, colouring books and the like so that the little ones at the party don’t get bored or feel left out.
