Wild Nights and Regrets: People Share Their Craziest Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Stories

Bachelor and bachelorette parties have long been associated with wild and crazy nights out, marking the last hurrah before tying the knot. From strippers and excessive alcohol consumption to spontaneous trips to Las Vegas or exotic destinations, these pre-wedding celebrations are known to bring out the adventurous side of the bride and groom-to-be and their friends.

While some people prefer low-key celebrations with close friends and family, others opt for an all-out extravaganza. It’s not uncommon to hear stories of bachelor and bachelorette parties that include activities such as skydiving, bungee jumping, or even renting a private island for the weekend. The possibilities are endless, and the goal is usually to create an unforgettable experience that the bride or groom will cherish for years to come.

But with great fun often comes great responsibility, and many bachelor and bachelorette parties have ended in disaster. From missed flights and lost passports to arrests and hospital visits, the consequences of going too wild can be severe. Despite the risks, however, many people continue to push the limits and indulge in outrageous pre-wedding celebrations, often with hilarious or cringe-worthy results.

Strippers Make It Look Easy

I tore my ACL (the first time) on a stripper pole in a bar during a friend’s Bachelorette party. I was so drunk that I initially wasn’t sure I was injured, so I climbed off the platform and rejoined the ladies on the dance floor. Midway through “Motown Philly”, my anterior drawer slid out and my leg collapsed underneath me. I was helped into the limo and into the hotel.

The following day, I used a chair to hobble across the hotel room, had the front desk deliver me a wheelchair, got to the parking lot, and drove with my opposite to a Walgreens. I hopped in on one foot and bought crutches. I then drove four hours home using only my left leg and saw the doctor Monday morning. Reconstructive surgery and nine months of rehab followed. 18 months after the first tear, I fell on ice and ruptured the graft. I now walk with a cane and will be crippled in the right leg for life.
