It is not every day that one of your best friends makes the decision to tie the knot. No matter how hard they want to believe it, from that day on, nothing will ever be the same. Love is a curious ailment and they will be completely oblivious to the world they are leaving behind. So, it is your duty as best man to remind them of these things at least for a single night. So, without further ado, here are few tips that may help you throw an ultimate bachelor party.
Get Some Help
First thing first, even though it is your duty to throw the party, there is no reason for you to do it on your own. Organize the squad and give everyone a job. Most important tasks like finding the venue or hiring the stripper you can keep for yourself, but there is no reason why some of the guys shouldn’t take over some minor parts or plan other activities. Naturally, you know your friends the best so you will be able to tell which one of them is responsible enough to be entrusted with which duty. Doing this together as a crew is a nice gesture and it can get you all closer together.
Find the Right Venue
As we already mentioned, one of the first thing you should worry about is finding the right venue. If there are other locations you want to visit that night, they need to be near. Nothing tires and sobers up people more on a bachelor’s night than a long drive to the next location. On the other hand, it might be a good idea to go away, somewhere more remote, a place with a nice view where you can find seclusion from the troubles of the outside world and go completely wild. Still, if you plan on changing several locations for the night you will need to think about the ride. Sure, most people hire a limousine to take them to their target location, but there are always those who prefer to get a vintage car for this occasion.
Walking a Thin Line
While some people see the movie Hangover as a textbook example of how to create a memorable night, things are far from being so simple. In real life, if everyone got wasted in first five minutes of the party, the night would be considered anything but success. You need to monitor everyone’s alcohol levels. In other words, you want everyone to get drunk, but you don’t want them to get wasted straight away. Sure, you don’t want to be the buzzkill, so you might want to come up with a series of fun activities that will help your friends control their drunkenness at least for a while.
It’s Not About the Stripper
Having a stripper is great, but your night cannot revolve around this alone. The entire bachelor party cannot consist of few girls dancing for five hours straight and then everyone going home drunk. This night needs to have a theme and you can use one of numerous male-bonding activities like playing poker, taking a road trip or even going paintball. Anyone who has ever played drunken paintball knows exactly how fun this can be.
Finally, no matter how hard people tried to standardize the idea of having a good time, in the end, it all comes down to personal preference. This means that nothing is mandatory. If your friends don’t want a stripper than you shouldn’t get one. If most of the guys are non-drinkers than you don’t have to insist on alcohol. In other words, your goal is for everyone (especially the groom) to have a good time no matter what it entails.
