Seems like the new trend in pre-marital bachelor/bachelorette parties is to combine the two — more of a co-ed pre-wedding party.
“Everyone had so much fun celebrating Jessica and Eric,” a source told ABC News. “Dinner was great, there were a bunch of touching toasts and then everyone went dancing!”
The betrothed couple hosted a party for around 40 people at The Warwick in Los Angeles over the weekend, with Jessica’s mom, Tina, and their bridesmaids and groomsmen in attendance.
“It wasn’t about being naughty,” a friend said to People. “They just wanted a great night out with their friends and family.”
“They didn’t want a traditional bachelor-bachelorette where they go off and do their own thing, because our group of friends is so close we just wanted to all be together,” said Stephanie Terblanche, Jessica’s best friend and bridesmaid.

The former NFL player also invited his football teammates to party with the couple.
“This is what we would do anyway. We would all go out, and I think that this speaks for the group. If we are not going to be at someone’s house hanging out playing beer pong, this is the closest thing to it,” said Terblanche.
There were no strippers or other shenanigans on hand and 33-year-old Jessica looked stunning with her sexy figure in a revealing black dress with a plunging neckline.
“[They] were just excited to have some fun and celebrate with the people they love,” the friend said.
Simpson, who has been with her betrothed for four years seems more ready than ever to finally get hitched to Johnson. There is speculation that their wedding may take place over the Fourth of July weekend.
The couple are parents to 2-year-old Maxwell and 11-month-old Ace.
