Apart from the obvious madness of the glorious bachelor party that you plan to throw there are essentials that you need to check off the list to ensure that the bachelordom doesn’t somersault overnight into the climax of the Hangover movie. If you are the leader of the clan, chances are you’ll have to do all the planning by yourself.
But to make your task easier and more organized, here are 6 essential things you need to know before planning an epic bachelor’s party.
1. KEEP EVERYONE’S BUDGET IN MIND
When you begin to explore possible destinations or even restaurants and activities that you’d like to indulge in for the event, you will be spoilt with choices. From straight off renting a penthouse, to booking tickets to Thailand or even holding a grandiose party at some jazzy club with unending varieties of alcohol to choose from, options aren’t minimal. But it’s of paramount importance that you keep everyone’s budget in mind. Every invitee should be comfortable with the cost of expenditure or else you’d have to be prepared for last minute cancellations.
2. LET THE GROOM SELECT PARTY LOCATION
Traditionally, a bachelor party is a one-night event for you to indulge in all whims and fancies. Or so, you’d like to think. If you're not traveling across the continent or even country, you can still have a great time by renting rooms in a lavish hotel where everyone’s choice of luxury is provided. Whatever the venue for the event is, ensure it is something that the groom approves of. Take cues from his personality and personal interests to understand what he’d really enjoy.
3. DO NOT THROW THE PARTY A DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING
The biggest and the most obvious of all DON’Ts! Planning the party a night before the date of the wedding is something you shouldn’t do unless you want to start your big day with regrets and never ending taunts. By holding the event a few weeks before the wedding, you could unleash your inner party animal spirit without worrying about terrible hangovers.
4. GROOM ALWAYS CREATES THE GUEST LIST
You have to list down the guests with the groom because ultimately it is his party and you don’t want to invite a truckload of people he doesn’t really fancy. If you’re planning a trip, the guest list need not include people outside the close knitted circle of people the groom likes but then again don’t forget the thumb rule of the more the merrier.
5. HANGOVER KIT IS A MUST-HAVE
A post bachelor’s party phase is worse than the wedding hangover. It makes you cranky and lethargic, so to keep up with all the excitement that everyone has been looking forward to, packing a hangover kit is a must. It contains all the essentials you’ll need to cure your hangover. Add medicine for head and body aches, eye drops to get rid of redness, mouthwash, energy bars and chewing gums.
