How to Throw a Bachelor Party

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

You will need

  • Schedule
  • Guest list
  • Budget
  • Location
  • Entertainment
  • Camera
  • Car service (optional)

Step 1 Schedule 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.

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.

Step 4 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.

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.
