How To Throw The Best Best Bachelor Party
If you are the best man or in the position to give the groom a great send-off before his marriage, you want to throw the best bachelor party he could imagine. Luckily, there are endless options now, with the ability to compose a night based off any theme or activity he desires. Skip the obvious, tired stereotypes for a bachelor party to deliver something really original, fun and memorable before the groom walks down the isle to happily ever after.
Plan the entire evening. Many groomsmen make the mistake of simply amassing a general idea, then imagining that the group will simply wing it on the night of the bachelor party, going around town at the groom-to-be's discretion. However, that is not the guide map to a great bachelor party; for starters, the groom is not going to want the responsibility of making choices that will impact all the guests; it is proper etiquette to make the plans for him. When you do not have clear and detailed plans, anything can happen, especially anything unpleasant. Take extra care to give him a perfectly orchestrated evening.
- Opt for a destination bachelor party if time permits. For example, the weekend before a wedding, you may want to escape to Las Vegas for a wild, fun bachelor party ongoing party. If you live within 100 miles or so of a big party city or have the finances to fly the whole group out just for the party, a long bachelor party often makes for one that leaves a lasting impression. For what not to do, see the movie "The Hangover."
Make a fun play list of the groom-to-be's favorite music for the bachelor party. Even if you are going out of the town for the whole night, you can play it in the car on your way to and from events. Choose songs that are fun and that celebrate a mix of who he is as an individual and his upcoming nuptials.
- Consider involving the bride for a special twist on the traditionally wild night. If the groom is easily embarrassed, have some fun by having an over-sized cake with a girl to jump out of it. Once he realizes what is going on, he may protest. When he sees his fiance dressed up in sexy, fun attire as she jumps out of the cake, that will be the funniest surprise of the night.
- Make sure the bachelor party provides the fun of being single, yet is also a celebration of the choice that the groom-to-be has made. Too often, bachelor parties are disrespectful by their very nature. No matter how fun-loving you like to tease one another, he will be impressed and thankful if it is a tasteful, respectful and kind evening, where you both toast and roast him with love.
