How to Throw a Bachelor Party

Throw a bachelor party that everyone will be sure to remember. At least, parts of it.

  • Step 2: Invite friends and family Invite the groom's male friends and relatives.
  • Step 3: Set up a budget Plan a budget for the party and figure out how much each guest is willing to spend.

  • TIP: Hire a car service if the party includes drinking and no one wants to be the designated driver.
  • Step 5: Plan activities Plan the evening so that there's never a dull moment. Consider hiring entertainment, going golfing, gambling, or camping.
  • Step 6: Have fun Have fun. Bachelor parties are a chance for everyone to have a good time, but don't let it get too out of control.
  • Step 7: Take pictures Take lots of pictures at the party, but don't take pictures of anything too incriminating.
