Bachelor Parties And Weddings Get A Modern Makeover

PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Next time you get invited to a bachelor party, don’t assume it’s just another steaks and strippers soiree.

That’s according to event planner Sabina Freedman, Vice President of Client Services at Eventective, the nation’s largest venue search engine.

Freedman says when it comes to the pre-wedding guys’ night, men are choosing more unique venues like sports arenas and breweries over nightclubs and nudie bars.

She says, “We’re finding people want a party space that’s more refined, contemporary, and cool.”

The trends are changing for weddings, too. Freedman says art galleries and museums have become the new hot hitching-posts.

She explains, “With the big ceilings and windows and all the art, there’s ambience already there.”

And as far as potential rowdy revelers go, Freedman hasn’t encountered too many, since in her words, “The venues are very clear about the rules.”
