As the best man, you’ve been given the responsibility to arrange what could be the most important night of debauchery in a man’s life. If ever there was a final hurrah, this is it – a night where boys can be boys.
To succeed in planning the perfect bachelor party there are four simple rules you must follow. Do these, and you’re well on the way to organizing a night so amazing, most of the party won’t even remember it!
Plan the activities
The amount of potential activities for a bachelor party is too long to list. If you’re planning an entire day’s worth of partying, it’s recommended that you choose a variety of events.
During the day, you might want to get involved with some rugged outdoor activities such as riding quads, paintballing, or go-kart racing. Men are competitive creatures, so anything that allows the members of your group inflate their ego is sure to be a winner. Freedom has some excellent package deals that are perfect if you’re planning a bachelor weekend.
You should book a venue for your bachelor party’s night time activities. This gives you a reliable place to meet, and most bars will put on food and supply some free drinks for the group booking. Any semblance of a plan you may of had for the bars and clubs you’ll visit will go out the window once the guys have had a few drinks. Go with the flow and always follow the direction of the groom – it’s his night after all!
The girls may have their pink sparkly hats and bride-to-be banners, but you can also set the dress code. If you want to look truly dapper, suits are the only way to go. Dig out your best shirt and tie, and prepare to hit the town (or casino) in style.
Alternatively, you could go for a wackier vibe. Websites like Custom Planet allow you to create customised t-shirts with bespoke text, logos and embroidery. The only limiting factor here is your creativity. Feel free to be as artistic, or vulgar, as you like!
Keep costs low
It’s important to bear in mind that a lot of your party members may have already spent a lot to come to this bachelor party. If they’re from another area of the country, make sure they are provided with accommodation that is simple and affordable. It doesn’t need to be fancy; just a place where they can sleep off the horrific day-after hangover.
Break the ice
From old school friends to workmates, family members to childhood friends, there is going to be a lot of unfamiliar faces. Create a Facebook group where the attending party members can break the ice and get to know each other. You can ask for suggestions on how the night will go and get them talking to each other. When the night finally comes, attendees should be able to put faces to names.
Here’s hoping you have a memorable night!
