The bachelorette is a ubiquitous rite of passage for a bride. Through this ritual, the bride-to-be is initiated into a role of a wife by her friends in a fascinating twist on traditional gender roles. The women celebrate by engaging in ‘masculine’ behavior, signifying that a woman has as much sexual freedom to lose as her partner. A ritual attempting to reinforce relationships among women is performed in a conventionally atypical female way- through a night of sexual games and drinking. With this project I am exploring the bachelorette party as a curious ritual of friendship and status, intimacy and consumerism.
