Celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party in Amsterdam is nothing new. If you walk through the city center, you cannot ignore it … groups of exuberant people walk through the streets dressed up. The bride-to-be or groom will often receive a sash or t-shirt with text from the group. With a bit of bad luck, the group of friends decides on a strange costume for the chosen one.
Farewell to the bachelor life
The friends take the soon-to-be-married person to celebrate the bachelorhood one more time. The groom or bride-to-be will be taken from home or work unexpectedly for a surprise day out. For example, they go on a pub crawl, a canal tour Amsterdam, eat something or do a physical activity. Either way it will be an unforgettable day.
A bachelor party can also consist of other activities. For instance Muslim women celebrate Henna Night: an occasion for singing and dancing. The bride is beautifully decorated with jewelry and henna while nuts, oriental sweets and fruits are eaten. The groom visits the mosque with his friends.
Indian brides are also decorated with henna during the Hindu Mehndi Ceremony. There is feasting and dancing in this tradition, which originated in the 15th century.
Every culture has its own customs and it is all possible in Amsterdam.
