Everything you need to know about engagements, bridal showers, and weddings, whether you're the bride, the groom, or a guest.
You Will Need
- Guest list
- Car service (optional)
Schedule the party a few days before the wedding, but preferably at least a week ahead of time. Scheduling a party the night before the wedding is usually a mistake.
Invite friends and family
Invite the groom's male friends and relatives.
Set up a budget
Plan a budget for the party and figure out how much each guest is willing to spend.
Pick the location
Pick a location for the party. Popular bachelor party destinations vary from Las Vegas to local bars to camping in the outdoors.
Plan the evening so that there's never a dull moment. Consider hiring entertainment, going golfing, gambling, or camping.
Have fun. Bachelor parties are a chance for everyone to have a good time, but don't let it get too out of control.
Take lots of pictures at the party, but don't take pictures of anything too incriminating.
