A brief history of bachelorette parties
Drinking games, phallic party favors, strippers, and cheeky dares – these four are hallmarks of the modern bachelorette party. However, it wasn’t always this way.
In some form or another, pre-marriage celebrations, including bridal showers, have existed since the 15th century. But the history of the party we know today is a short one. It all started with a bachelor party (surprise, surprise!)
Here’s a concise history lesson for you:
- 5th century BC. Spartan men hold parties for their soon-to-be-wed friends, which consist of dinner and a toast.
- 14th century. The term “bachelor” comes into widespread use, describing an unmarried man thanks to Geoffrey Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales.”
- 1896. Police raid a “stag party” after hearing rumors about the performance of a nude belly dancer.
- 1922. The year of the first documented use of the term “bachelor party.”
Then come the swinging 1960s. The sexual revolution is in full swing. Women are embracing their sexuality, and brides-to-be are swapping classy bridal showers for rowdy bachelorette parties. But the term “bachelorette party” wouldn’t become popular until the 1980s.
In the 80s and 90s, the bachelorette party officially became a pre-marital tradition, culturally significant as a symbol of sexual freedom and another important step towards gender equality.
Bachelorette parties that were once called the “last hoorah” and final night of “freedom” for the bride serve as a way for her to connect and bond with the women in her squad. And matching funny bachelorette party shirts have become a must.
What are the most popular funny bachelorette party shirts?
As I said, in today’s bachelorette parties, matching attire is a must, whether it’s a tulle skirt or matching sneakers or t-shirts. The bride and her maids no longer have to follow the traditional white and black dress code. And here’s where the funny bachelorette party shirts come in.
Besides looking cute in group photos, these bachelorette shirts are the good-time magnets. What better way to score your besties some free drinks than to announce she’s a bride-to-be via cute (or sassy!) t-shirt? And I’m not even going to mention the hassle of planning yet another outfit – with matching, pre-planned shirts there is none!
