We've all heard the stories: Grooms who don't make it out of the bachelor party with their eyebrows intact. Misadventures with strippers. Wicked wedding-day hangovers. All with one cause: the stag night. To find out how brides really feel about their dude's last night out as a single guy, we asked our readers to share if they set any rules for their future husband's bachelor party.

"Mine was 'don't die." They were going on a white-water rafting trip!" — Shelby H.

"No tiaras." — Siobhan A.

"No pranks that would affect his appearance (eyebrows). Strippers were fine, but he chose not to have one. I did. He had no rules for mine, but I requested no novelty penises!" — Tania B.

"No strippers! Both of us said it to each other!" — Amanda P.

"There were no rules because we skipped all the pre-wedding party things. Although we had 11 months to plan, we just didn't have the desire to spend more time planning for other parties. As they say, 'Ain't nobody got time for that!'" — Karen E.

"If you're not embarrassed to tell me the day after or show me pictures, go for it! My husband saw pics of me and the male stripper my friends hired, and I saw his. We have nothing to hide from each other. I say if you can be honest, it's all good!" — Emilie H.

"Don't schedule it for the night before the wedding — that way there would be no hangovers at the wedding." — Denise B.

"It's the only weekend he has to do whatever he wants. We both went to Vegas on different weekends. I was planning on surprising him with bottle service at a strip club, but they went to Blue Man Group instead!" — Mavi D.

"No touching!" — Amanda A.

"Our only request was no drinking and driving." — Sabrina M.

"We didn't have any rules because we did ours together. People can say what they want about joint parties, but, for us, we wanted a fun night out with everyone. (We had a lot of out-of-towners). It had nothing to do with trust. To this day, both of us swear it was one of the best nights of our lives." — Sarah S.

"There was one rule: Have fun." — Brittany S.
