8 Joint Bachelor/Bachelorette Activities That Aren't Lame

You’re getting ready to share your lives together, so why not share your last big event before you officially become man and wife? Here are some ideas to make sure you and your groom–along with your friends and family–have a great time.

1. Wine Tasting. Spend the day touring local wineries—many offer live music, private tours or even the chance to make your own bottle that you can save for your one-year anniversary. Then you can end the day at your favorite restaurant for dinner.

2. Camping (or Glamping). If you both love the outdoors, plan a weekend camping trip. You and your bridal party can spend the day swimming, hiking, cooking and more. If you don’t want to sleep outside, then think about glamping, where you spend time outdoors, but sleep in a cabin.

3. Concert. Get tickets to see your favorite band or musician—or even better, go to a festival so you can spend all day listening to music with your friends.

4. Comedy Show. Guarantee a good time with a night out at the local comedy club.

5. Amusement Park. Relive your great childhood memories by riding roller coasters, playing games and stuffing your faces with junk food. You can even make it into a competition–the person who rides the most adrenaline-rush rides in one day gets a special prize.

6. Sporting Event. Cheer on your local sports team together. Bonus points if you get your names and photos on the Jumbo Tron!

7. Karaoke Talent Show. Take karaoke to the next level by having everyone prepare their acts in advance. You can even have a few pals sit out to judge the performances, American Idol-style.

8. Volunteer. You can go in a different direction and spend the day working as a team for a good cause. Build houses for Habitat for Humanity, serve at the local soup kitchen, or clean up trash at the park. Then you can go out and party to celebrate your impending nuptials–and for being such good citizens!

#9: Scavenger Hunt. Participate in some friendly competition by planning a boys vs. girls scavenger hunt. Make it interesting by having the clues relate back to the couple’s relationship, leading to the place they first met, their favorite dating spot, where he proposed, etc. The losing team has to pick up the tab for dinner or drinks that night.
