What You Gotta Do

You are the best man. You have to organize the groom’s bachelor party. You are so nervous if you will be able to coordinate everything. The responsibility of the groom is on you. The responsibility of the guests’ entertainment is on you. The food, drinks, games, strippers or not, theme, costumes, music, backup plans, and most importantly, the guest list- is all on your shoulders. You gotta catch ‘em all. You have to prove your mettle. The pressure is real.

 

You panicking? Don’t. We know what an arduous task a bachelor party planning is. So let me help you out here, step by step, you’ll get through it. First and foremost step, finalize the guest list, because this list could make or break your party. When I say finalize, I don’t mean send out invitations already to all those listed, but get it approved by the groom; he may not want some people on that list. So don’t chuck the groom’s wish list.

 

Secondly, depending on how much you are willing to spend, choose a magnificent location, or throw an outstanding house party. Anyhow, some popular destinations for a bachelor party, which you could also convert into a bachelor trip, are Miami, Las Vegas, Bangkok, and Ibiza.

 

Thirdly, finalize a date that suits everyone, which should, in most cases, be a weekend. But keep in mind- never throw a bachelor party the night before the wedding. Next, send out the invitations to the final guest list, at least a month in advance, so the invitees can schedule their work accordingly.

 

Further, once you know how many people are attending the party, make reservations at the place(s) you decided to throw the party. Alongside, communicate with the vendors also, whom you think to be important. For example- transportation, hotel and restaurant reservations, event tickets etc.

 

Lastly, if possible, collect money from everyone beforehand itself so as to avoid the hassle later in the party. There, that was the manual way of throwing a bachelor party. However, if you are still hesitant about something, you could always use external help. Look up professionals offering bachelor party packages. I’m sure they will make your life and executing the party much easier. There you go. Now you are ready to rock your audience.

Tips and Tricks for the Ideal Bachelor Party

Most people think that bachelor party planning is easy and an extremely simple task, just like planning that vacation to Mexico with four of your buddies. But this is why most parties don’t live up to expectations and are unable to think of unique ideas. However, with some tips and tricks, we can boost up your organisation skills.

So here’s your guide to throw your best friend the best bachelor party and earn the title of ‘Best Man’:

  1. Decide the basic logistics; the where and the when: If you’re not able to take out the time to figure out the ideal destination for you and your buddies, hire a planner and preferable one who specialises in crazy bachelor party packages. Giving your friends options lets them think that they have control but within your parameters. Then pick the best possible date at least a month in advance and make sure that it’s not at the same time as a major holiday season. Also, account for everyone’s budgets and schedules.
  2. Make sure to book your stay: Depending on your bachelor party destination, figure out what is the best way to stay during your vacation. Check the amount of people attending and think about their equations before your book a crammed house or go camping. If they’re into cooking then ensure that the place has grills and private pools. But if the plan is to go all out at Las Vegas or Atlantic City, the stick to hotel rooms which can be maintained by the staff.
  3. Give the guest list a thought: This can be a tricky situation because you don’t want to call too many people or too few either. Hitting that perfect number with a good mix of family, friends and future family is important. The ideal size is 10 for various reasons such as accommodation convenience, expenditure and of course, fun.
  4. Plan your activities wisely: Once you fully understand the social dynamics of the group, decide on a few specific activities and events that you think would work for the said circle so that they can interact and enjoy themselves together!
