Its my party and I'll cry if I want to

Less than 12 hours to go for our stag and doe and I'm pretty sure its going to be a failure. I mean, I was looking forward to a big party with everyone I know and it seems like everyone's busy doing something or "Its too far" (Parkview community center in Barrie) or whatever.

I feel like Karma's kicking me in the ass. I LOVE stag & does, I always find them so much fun and usually went to those of people I hardly knew but always thought how awesome it would be when the time came for the crowd to be everyone I know. I dont care about the money. I mean, it would definitely be nice to profit and say "Hey, we can afford a honeymoon now!" but that's not my whole objective. I just hate the thought of the smallest stag & doe I've ever been to being my own. all 15 of us are going to have a kick ass time anyway...but its not the same.

I dont know, people tell me that usually a lot of people show up at the door and dont buy tickets in advance, but the rate people have been declining doesnt make things look promising.

I'm sorry. I would have gone but I can't get out of work and I have holidays coming up so I can't really book off too much time between now and then :( I asked to switch with the other supervisors but they were busy.

no worries. I think I was just nervous for the whole day (i had a bridal shower that day too) and from the fact mom and I were arguing.

It turned out better than I thought it would. I just hope mom is happy with the turnout but I havent heard from her about that though...

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is a stag and doe party?

I've never heard of it before...

Also goes by Jack & jill or Buck & doe a few other names depending on the crowd. Its a big party with all your friends and family before you get wedding. Lots of alcohol and gambling type games, silent auctions and draws and stuff with the profit going to the bride and groom.

I'll let wikipedia do what it does best:


Note though that wiki says its instead of a bachelor and bachelorette, but I've seen it done in addition to because its not exactly the same.

Go figure.

It sounds like a great idea, and lots of fun. I hope it turned out well for you!
