So, you were given the responsibility of organising your best friend’s bachelor party. The number one thing on your mind right now might be figuring out how to send him off with a bang. Achieving that involves making the right choices but these aren’t limited to just deciding between different bucks night ideas.
To make things easier for you, here are common questions that come up during the planning.
Who Should I Invite?
During your regular guys’ night out, you might only have your close-knit group of buddies. But for the groom’s stag do, you’ll need to consider his co-workers and family members too. Consult with him as to who he’s obliged to include and who he’d rather not have around. Then, finalise your list and send out the invitations via social media or email.
How Much Should We Spend?
This will solely depend on your financial capability as a group. If all of the invited can afford to spend 300 dollars for an evening of fun, go for it. You can tell when you’ve gone too expensive when someone mentions that they don’t have the money for the event. A decent yet safe amount may be 150 dollars per person but you should first double-check with everyone who wants to come.
Where Should We Go?
Well, you’d need to look at your budget to determine whether you’ll be travelling or staying put for the party. Staying local can save you money on transportation fees but a trip across the country can give you many new experiences. But then, some of the people you’ve invited might not be able to get a long enough leave from work for your holiday. Weigh the pros and cons to help make up your mind.
What Should We Do?
Truthfully, there are boatloads of bucks night ideas worth considering. There’s the ever-popular visit to the strip club where you and the gang can make it rain. There’s also the less conventional paintball game to break the ice among those who will be meeting each other for the first time. If you have the time and the money to spare, you could do both or more.
What Should We Wear?
Obviously, that will depend on what you’re going to do on that day or evening. You very well can’t wear a fancy tuxedo if you’re planning to go surfing with the boys. In the same way, you would be underdressed with shorts and slippers if you’re thinking to head to a gentlemen’s club. You could decide on a motif where everyone has to wear blue or something similar to make it easier to keep an eye on everybody.
Other questions might come up while you’re in the middle of organising the bachelor party and you might feel overwhelmed. A rule of thumb is to take it one step at a time and to plan way ahead of the date.
