Are you the best man, best buddy, or childhood friend of the groom? Whatever the case, make sure he leaves bachelordom with a bang by planning him a killer bachelor party! Even if you don't want naked women to be involved in the party (although that is the aim for most guys), you can still plan a fun, memorable event. Here are some tips about how to plan and what kind of supplies you can use to throw a party that your buddy will never forget.
Party Planning Tips
Make sure to schedule and plan the bachelor party well before the big day. Usually it's a good idea to schedule the party around one month prior to the wedding date. The bride and the families involved in the wedding won't be too happy to find the groom hung over on the big day or fighting with the bride because she is suspicious about the prior evening's events.
Good bachelor party planning will ensure that you have a smooth running party. Parties planned at the last minute tend to fall apart so make sure to prepare everything from the transportation to the food well beforehand. Have everyone besides the groom chip in to cover all costs before the party date so you aren't stuck footing the bill. You'll want to start off the night with a meal to stay energized and to offset the effects of all of the alcohol you'll likely be consuming.
Time-Tested Party Ideas
The quintessential party idea is hiring a stripper or going to a strip club. Although private, in-room entertainment is nice, it can be expensive so you may want to head to a strip club if you are on a budget. Another big perk of going to a public strip club is that the bride will be less worried about the groom breaking her trust. Not all the guys (or their girlfriends/wives) you invite are going to be enthusiastic about the presence of naked women at the party. Make sure to plan other fun activities so they still get a chance to participate in the festivities. Some other fun activities include going out for a "last supper" and playing poker.
Some fun bachelor party supplies that you'll want to consider are memorabilia such as a shot glass that says, "My last night out." The groom can wear this shot glass around his neck and he's bound to get plenty of free alcohol! Mardi gras beads are also great party supplies if you want to get people of the opposite sex to strip down without even having to hire a stripper. If you want to avoid angering the bride-to-be, don't hire a stripper and buy a plastic blow-up doll instead for innocent yet naughty fun. You can handcuff the groom to a Pamela Anderson or Paris Hilton blow-up doll at the party to score some laughs.
Other fun supplies you might want to get are games. Games like pin the boobies on the babe and playing cards picturing naked women are perfect for bachelors. Sports games are a surefire way to have a great male bonding experience. The party attendees can play sports like soccer, football, basketball, and volleyball in the afternoon to get riled up for the big party. After the big game, you can go get washed up and reunite to head out for the night's fun activities.
