THE ROOTS FROM WHERE BACHELOR PARTY CAME
Bachelor parties are basically from the 5th century. Back in the 5th century, Spartan soldiers used to celebrate the groom’s last night as a single man with dinner in his honor and used to make toasts on his behalf. It used to be very different from today’s typical celebration.
Back in 1922 the term “bachelor party” didn’t even exist. In fact, “jolly old” party was the term first used to describe it in the Scottish publication Chamber’s Journal of Literature, Science and Arts. In fact, it is known with a wide range of names, which vary from country to country, for instance if you are partying in the U.K., Canada and Ireland you will call it a stag party. Whereas, in Australia people call it as a buck’s party.
More often than not, bachelor parties used to involve a black-tie dinner hosted by the father of the groom with toasts to the groom and bride!
