Being a groomsman or a best man is a great honor in a person’s life, so congratulations are in order. This shows that the two of you understand, love, and support each other, and it’s a clear sign of how important your friendship is to the future groom. As his best friend, it is your duty and responsibility to throw the best bachelor party. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry – we’re here for you. Here are a few tips that will help you plan and organize the ultimate bachelor party everyone will enjoy.
Think of everything
This might not be a fun thing to do, but thinking of everything in advance is absolutely necessary if you want everyone to have a good time and remember this bachelor party for years (and for the right reasons). It means you have to organize transportation and accommodation for those who are not in the city. If you don’t want to arrange everything on your own, do a bit of research and offer others several options, and allow them to choose for themselves. Think about when they’ll come, where they’ll stay, where you’ll eat, what you’ll do, and how all of you will get home afterward. When you have all of these “technicalities” in order, the rest is a piece of cake.
Keep it simple
Who said that a good bachelor party has to end up like “Hangover” in the movie? Of course, you can organize an incredibly elaborate bachelor party, but we feel that this way, people won’t be able to focus on spending quality time with each other. Some guys believe that visiting strip clubs and bars is a tradition, while others prefer to just hang out with their friends and talk about “the old times”. Whatever you decide to do, it’s important to know what the future groom wants. If he’s into wild parties, by all means, throw a mean party everyone will remember forever – for example, take the squad to Las Vegas for the weekend. But if he’s a shy and quiet kind of guy, tone it down a bit and he will love it just as much.
Keep It Light
Bachelor parties are meant to be fun and not stressful, so do ask your soon-to-be-married best friend what they want for their party. If you want it to be a surprise, snoop around, or ask someone else to get your friend’s opinion.
It’s a tradition to give soon-to-married friends fun and sexy gifts like sex toys to get a laugh out of everyone. You may want to prepare hilarious, good-natured surprises like those to break the ice.
Keep it sexy
Having a hot girl around at a bachelor party is something that’s slowly becoming a tradition. Trips to strip clubs are no longer taboo, and sexy girls will give that special touch to your party. Still, if you’re planning a small and quiet gathering of friends, you can spice it up without much fuss. While hiring strippers is something people in the US do, Australians have a different option: gorgeous Sydney topless waitresses will make your bachelor poker game ten times more difficult. Guys will certainly find it a challenge to keep their poker faces on while being surrounded by beautiful topless girls who hand them their drinks.
Keep it fun
Speaking of party games, poker isn’t the only fun card game you can play with your friends at a bachelor party. You can take out the big guns and get one of the hottest board games out there: Cards Against Humanity, The Exploding Kittens, What do You Meme, That’s What She Said, Buzzed… You can also rent an entire house just for you! It will certainly bring back college memories and make you all remember those wild frat parties and times when you could drink without experiencing killer hangovers for the next couple of days.
Keep them full
Yes, we understand that there’s more to bachelor parties than drinking and playing games – you all have to eat if you don’t want to end up sick. While a weekend of pizza, tacos, and burritos might sound appealing, you should probably add some “real” food to the list as well. Quick bites and piles of junk food are pretty common on bachelor weekends, but a nice sit-down dinner that will make you all enjoy good food will be a great addition to your trip. Sharing a meal brings people together, and if you want, you can buy food and organize a cookout. However, if you want to relax, just book a restaurant and have a nice, quiet dinner. What is more, you could also have caterers bring all of the groom’s favorite foods – a special treat for him.
Even though the groom-to-be is the most important person at a bachelor party, you shouldn’t ignore the rest of the guys who are going to be there. It’s about all of you coming together again to celebrate your friendship and remember all the good times you’ve had in the past. It’s a chance to spend quality time with each other while enjoying a great weekend and making new memories.
