Yes, we love wedding ceremonies and parties as we can dance the night away, drink whatever we want to and celebrate the love between two people. But, what do we love even more? Yes, a bachelor party. Not only is this party here as the first in the row (the wedding’s coming up), but it’s also a great way to spend your friend’s last single days together. However, different groups of people organize different bachelor parties. Some feature the blinding lights of Las Vegas, others feature a board game and bottles of beer. So, what kind of bachelor party are you going to attend or throw? Not sure? Take a look at this guide as we will give you some ideas on how to throw a perfect bachelor party regardless of sexual preferences.
What’s a bachelor party without drinks? Not paying attention to drinks is simply out of the question, so make sure to make this your priority when you start organizing the bachelor party. You can play this in many different ways, and each one depends on the actual location of your bachelor party. If it’s going to be a club, then you will have nothing to worry about. However, most bachelor parties start at home or a weekend house and this is where you will need to get the booze. Make sure that you know who’s drinking what, or if you want to play it safe, you can always simply get gin or whiskey or make it a cocktail party.
Hit the road
Another way to organize this bachelor party is to organize a small road trip. This could be done somewhere very close to the city or town where you live, so it would practically be a small weekend getaway to some other town or city. Or, you can also go completely The Hangover and book tickets to some exotic destinations such as Hong Kong, Singapore or Australia. The latter is always a very interesting option as it caters for all the needs that you want – you can explore the bush, or you can have an amazing time on the coast. Be that as it may, make sure that you book everything in advance – plane tickets and accommodation, and see if the groom has days off for the trip!
Next up, what are you going to do during the bachelor party? It simply won’t do just to listen to music and drink, so it’s up to you and your friends to think of some very exciting activities. This is also the case if you opt for a trip someplace exotic, as you actually need to plan your activities in advance– you cannot just wander around not knowing what to do. If you happen to go to Australia, one of the options could be to visit a great strip club in Sydney – no matter if you’re straight or gay, you will most definitely have fun here. This will also be a complete success if the groom is straight.
Lights, camera, action!
Finally, no matter what you choose and what you do, don’t forget to record everything! This will a night to remember, so make sure that you have plenty of battery left and space in order to record every single second of your amazing bachelor trip. You can use these photos and recordings afterwards to make an amazing vlog that you will share among yourselves – can we agree on how awesome a memory this is? Then again, perhaps you will be in The Hangover 4, so you need photos to remember what happened the previous night!
Organizing a bachelor party is always so much fun. In order to organize the best one yet, make sure that you make a checklist of all the things that need to be done, and go slowly over each. If you do this the right way, you will have the time of your life. After all, it’s not important where you are, but who you are with.
