Bachelor Party Tips To Ensure A Great Time And A Happy Wife
As with most things, putting together a great bachelor party is more (p)art(y) that science, but I would say that if the majority of partied remembered just a few, simple rules the parties would end up going most smoother than not. Now, I'll be the first to tell you that these aren't amazing, mind-blowing things that you would have never thought of, but most good ideas aren't. These are just things that you need to keep in mind and be aware of as you or your friends plan the last, big bash your bachelor will ever have as a single man.
So, if you're looking to throw a get together that you and your friends won't be forgetting anytime soon take a few minutes to read over these random, yet important bachelor party planning tips that I lay out below. They helped make my bachelor party really awesome and they'll help do the same for you. I'm not completely guaranteeing the awesomeness, but I can guarantee that keeping these in your brain during the planning process certainly won't hurt.
Get Ideas From All Of The Guys
If you're the one guy who is tasked with getting the bachelor party together, when you initially start the planning process don't feel like you need to come up with all of the ideas for the entire thing. You have a lot of friends and I'm guessing that you're going to have several of them come along on for the adventure, so make sure that you don't leave their thoughts and ideas out when you're laying down the foundation.
Once you get lots of ideas from everyone, get them all organized and decide which ones are actually possible (no, there's aren't any strip clubs on the moon...yet). One you have separated out the possible from the impossible shoot out your top 10-15 ideas to the rest of the guys and see which ones stick. You're going to make the final decision, so take all of their input, think about the options and make the final decision. I'm sure whatever you decide will be great, so don't stress out to much about it.
Keep The Bachelors Best Interests In Mind
As all of the crazy bachelor party ideas start pouring in one thing that you must always make sure to do is keep all of the activities within the best interests of the bachelor (and his future wife). You know how most bachelor parties go, right? I mean they've made countless movies about them -- I'm sure you've seen a couple. The guys who are putting the party together want to make it so crazy that people get arrested, strippers show up by the dozens and trips to Vegas become the standard thing to do. Well, before you go getting all crazy, just be sure that you first know what the bachelor wants to do and that you also have talked to the bride-to-be so that you're not going to be doing anything that she doesn't want you to do.
Believe me, the last thing you want to do is make the bride mad a few days before her wedding -- it's just not a good idea. Just make sure that you're keeping both of their interests in mind and this should never be a problem. Just get these discussions over early in the process so that you're not canceling trips to Las Vegas at the last minute.
