When Jack and Jill went to the top of the hill, what they found surprised them both.
If they are like most couples today who are engaged to be married, they have foregone the separate wild bachelor and bachelorette parties in favor of having one joint party for themselves and the wedding party.
Yes, the bride and groom, along with the best man, maid of honor and other members of the party can have lots of fun before the big day arrives.
While organizing a party sounds like an easy task, sometimes it can be anything but that when so many people with diverse interests are involved.
If you don’t panic and give it some thought, you’ll discover you can plan a joint party that Jack and Jill will still be talking about on their golden wedding anniversary.
One of the most popular and inexpensive Jack and Jill parties today is the stay-at-home party.
While sometimes it may be difficult to decide whose home will host the party, once that’s decided this can be an enjoyable experience for everyone.
When it comes to the home party, many ideas come to mind.
Since most weddings take place during summer, having a pool party is lots of fun and also a great way to cool off after a hot day.
Very informal, these parties lend themselves to everyone getting to know one another and unwind before the formalities begin the next day.
If a pool party isn’t possible, a backyard barbecue is another option.
There’s nothing like steaks on the grill, a great dessert and some adult beverages on the menu to let everyone have a great meal while letting their worries drift away.
Another fun option for a combined party is heading to the nearby casino for a fun night of tossing the dice, spinning the roulette wheel and playing the slots.
If a casino is not nearby, sometimes the equipment can be rented and a home can become a casino for an evening.
For added fun, the guys and the girls can team up against one another to see who can win the most money.
Many casinos have private rooms they rent out to groups for an evening, so asking about this can give everyone a spot to hang out with one another and open gifts, along with finding out who was the big winner at blackjack.
Many of today’s younger couples love to spend time together in the great outdoors, enjoying such activities as fishing, camping, hiking and other activities.
If everyone is on board with this idea, head to the nearest state park or other location and put up some tents.
Sitting by the campfire on a warm summer night in early evening can allow each other to decide who tells the scariest ghost story or who can simply look up at the sky and wish upon a star.
Many of today’s couples choose to have their parties near lakes, where they often have the thrill of setting up a guys vs. girls matchup of canoe racing.
While the girls usually wind up showing their male counterparts who’s boss, everyone is able to let down their hair and enjoy hanging out with Mother Nature.
Just remember, whatever happens at their garden party stay at their garden party, so Mother Nature’s land will be turned on it’s head.
Everyone loves to relax, and one of the great ways to do so is by going to a spa for a day of massages, manicures and all things soothing.
Guys and gals get a kick out of being the center of attention at these resorts, and with good reason.
After all, who wouldn’t want to spend a day lounging around in a bathrobe, getting matching pedicures while holding a glass of champagne?
With these parties, everyone usually buys gift certificates or gift cards for the bride and groom, enabling them to get the works before their big day.
To liven up the festivities even more, many times the mothers of the bride and groom are included in these get-togethers, giving them the opportunity to experience relaxation at its finest.
So while the traditional bachelor and bachelorette parties are bidding their final farewell in lieu of being replaced by more down-to-earth and inclusive gatherings, everyone involved with the wedding party can look forward to time spent getting to know one another and letting off some steam before getting down to business the following day.
As Jack and Jill make their way up the hill toward wedded bliss, they never know what kind of great surprise party awaits.

When it comes to the important first date, your clothes tell your man who you are. Shoulf they be revealing, too tight, or underdressed? Here’s our tips.
Statistics revealed that US has a 53% divorce rate.
If you find that staggering, wait until you hear the percentage in European countries:
This soaring percentage of divorce is just too high to disregard.
What are the things that are potentially putting marriages in trouble?
Are there ways couples can proactively minimise the issues that lead marital dissolution?
To find out the solid steps to avoiding divorce, we gather wise words and practical advice from a relationship expert, well-experienced counsellors, and intelligent authors.
Below are a few proven tips to keep marital relationships strong:
Dig for his or her positive sides that you used to admire.
Develop a daily habit of appreciating each other’s positive features.
Concentrate on qualities you truly cherish about your partner. You can also talk about wonderful events or trips you have experienced together.
This will promote mutual fondness and admiration which remains as your best weapon against contempt (due to familiarity).
If you know your partner’s likes, aspirations, oddities, dislikes, etc. – and you can still live with him or her – without any agenda of changing them later, your union has a better chance of surviving the toughest times.
It is not true that best friends agree about everything.
They just know either how not to start a argument or how to end a disagreement without inflicting damage.
Explore how you respond to uncomfortable situations and reflect on your reactions.
Having discovered your own style, it’s now time to explore your partner’s.
You’ll eventually realize that you express your views rather differently – and that’s fine.
As long as both sides are heard and understood, you will be able to repair, if not avoid, many conflicts or tensions before they get out of control.
A warm embrace as you wake up, stolen kisses, and excited hugs when you arrive from work.
These little acts seem petty but they build strong connection between the two of you over time.
Make each other laugh with timeless jokes and funny shows.
Volunteer together to charities or any institution that promotes goodwill.
The more positive experiences you create with your partner, the stronger your bond will be.
If your wife or husband is not happy about the chosen residence, this could a be a breeding ground of marital conflicts.
The blame game is a bad game because both of you end up losing. Husbands who need to commute more than an hour to work and another hour on the way home will find it difficult to help out in home chores.
Wives who do not need to travel to work might end up doing everything around the house – even child rearing.
Negative sentiments will kick in, eventually leading to greater marital issue.
Some jobs are highly demanding that they could cause a strain in relationships.
Long working hours and constant calls and emails even after your shift can pull you emotionally and physically away from your partner.
If both of you have busy careers, this should be fine. If not, this might cause a lot of problems.
Discuss your ambitions and how your lifestyles could match up.
Gone are the days that only the wives have to worry about money.
Couples need to sit down together and budget your finances to meet all required expenses.
Decide which purchases are essentials and which ones are just for pleasure.
Ask each other how much money they need to contribute from their salaries.
Have you ever asked your partner about her or his sexual preferences and fantasies?
If you find this subject embarrassing, then you will probably end up clueless whether you are fulfilling your spouse’s sexual needs or not.
Worried about your partner’s dwindling libido?
Stop guessing – bring up the topic in a casual conversation.
Never neglect your marriage if you want it to work out.
Both husbands and wives should set to work to make their lives together a source of immeasurable bliss, love and inspiration.
