Whether you're a frequent visitor to the open bar, a studious foodie or you just really love the Electric Slide there's something for everyone at almost every well-planned wedding. However, we all know that the real fun goes down before the big day. Bachelorette and bachelor parties are often documented as being more fun than the wedding itself even for the bride and groom-to-be! Of course, if you're having a bach bash you're probably partaking in some go-go juice to get the party train moving. The company behind one of the most popular party beverages, Four Loko, took an even deeper dive into what makes a bach bash so, well, loco. These results come from a survey of 1,000 people ages 21 to 70 about their bach bash experience! Take a look at some of our favorite stats from their research! For the full run down, click here!
