Not every person getting married identifies as a bride or groom, or bachelor or bachelorette, so if you're planning the prewedding party in their honor, your invitation message should definitely match their pronouns and those of the attendees. All it takes is some thoughtful gender-neutral bach party invitation wording to make your bids a lot more inclusive and representative of the wedding party getaway. We get it: If you're not a wordsmith, coming up with the verbiage to vibe with your celebrant, their attendees and the overall ambiance of the bach bash can be difficult. Don't freak out, though, we've got you covered. Keep on reading for tips on how to tailor the bach party invite wording to your favorite soonlywed and what to stay cognizant of for a truly gender-inclusive summons that's finessed to impress.

What to Put on Your Bach Party Invitations

Like any invitation you'd be sending for a prewedding party, your card—whether it's a digital or physical invite—should include the basic details of the day or weekend. So that means: the celebrant's name (is it just one of the soonlyweds or both partners?), the date (or dates) of the event (and the time, if it's a one-night ordeal), the location and the details of when and how to RSVP to the planning point person (email, phone).

Once these are out of the way, it's time to figure out how to announce the event at the top of the invitation. You can go with the most-used vernacular for a gender-neutral fete, bachelorx party, or come up with a different name that feels right and captures the vibe of the wedding party's VIP vacay. Cap things off with a fun phrase that'll let guests know what they're in for at this epic shindig (more ideas for those later on).

Alternative Ways to Say Bach Party

Your invitees are probably already familiar with the idea of a bachelor or bachelorette party, so "bach" party, which removes the gendered suffixes, should convey a more gender-inclusive soiree. That being said, there are plenty of other gender-neutral wedding terms you can use in your invitation—there really is no standard terminology anymore when it comes to stationery wording, as long as your invitation properly addresses your guest of honor in a way that feels authentic to them.

Here are some other ideas on how to say "bach party," in case you need some inspiration:

  • Bachelorx party
  • Bach bash
  • Wedding send-off
  • Prenuptials night out
  • Inner circle party
  • Last fling before the rings
  • Getting-hitched hang
  • Final cruise with their "I do" crew
  • Bach blowout
  • The party before the party

Bach Party Invitation Wording Examples

Thinking about how to word your gender-neutral bach party invitation? First, highlight the big event that's coming up (i.e. your friend, sibling, coworker's wedding) and then tell your guests that a prenuptials anticipation celebration is in order. The wedding is going to be great, but whenever X's best people are gathered together for food, drinks and memory-making, it's a good time. With all that said, we'll get you ready to send an invitation that the VIP and all their revelers will love. Feel free to copy and paste right into the invitation templates you've been bookmarking and be sure to tweak accordingly to accommodate their preferred pronouns.
