Whether you hold the prestigious title of Best Man, or you’re just one of the Groomsmen looking to help out, then you’ve come to the right place when it comes to finding some inspiration for planning a Bachelor Party. Turns out that it’s probably not as simple as you thought it would be, right?
The movies, after all, make seem so easy – just set out, hit up a few bars, and wake up not remembering a thing. Well, hold on a second: are you sure that’s what the Groom wants?
After all, a drunken escapade can happen any night, so isn’t it worth doing something a bit special to make the groom’s experience something that they’ll look back fondly on for years to come? It might seem like hard work, but it’s not as bad as you think.
Establish Your Guest List
Knowing how many people you’re going to have at the event will help a lot when you get to the planning stage.
You’ll want to warn your invitees that there will be costs involved and that they will have to pay in advance – particularly because you plan on getting them a custom t-shirt for the party. You can get custom screen printing you will love by contacting your local t-shirt printing company and putting in an order for the event ahead of time.
Not only will you be able to visibly keep track of the group, but you’ll also leave them with a lasting souvenir that they can take home and (hopefully) use to remember the event fondly with.
Have a Plan
Plans don’t sound very fun, do they? But, you’ll be having a lot less fun when you’re waiting around trying to figure out where to go next (especially if everything’s booked up).
First, you should plan with the Groom which day the party will take place on – regardless of how fun the idea of kidnapping them might be. Then, you might want to get a general idea from them about the things they expect out of the night (without going into specifics).
After that, it’s time to plan the night out in detail with the help of the Groomsmen. Some memorable activities you can plan for a bachelor party include:
- Organize a camping event
- Play some golf or mini-golf
- Take a road trip (but be sure to do your research first and plan your stops)
- Organize a whiskey or a beer tasting tour
- Play a game of paintball
- Attend a sports game
- Plan a day filled with video games and reminisce about the good old days when LAN parties were a thing
Whatever you do, the event should be inspired by the Groom’s interests. The worst thing you could do is plan an event around what you like and completely ignore what the Groom would want to do. Hopefully, though, you were selected as the Best Man for a reason, and you’ll be sure to have their best interests in mind.
