Every groom-to-be wants to have the perfect bachelor party, but what exactly does that mean? After all, "perfect" means something different to everyone, but usually, it means that everything goes off without a hitch. That is why planning is so important! When you're planning your own bachelor party (or maybe you are the best man planning the bachelor party for your friend), there are many factors to take into consideration. We are going to cover some of those in this article, as well as discuss why the planning process is so important.
Why Is Planning a Bachelor Party Important?
For the purposes of this article, we are going to assume that the person planning the bachelor party is either the best friend or a relative of the groom-to-be. No groom should ever have to plan his own bachelor party. Ideally, the groom will only be celebrating his own bachelor party once in his entire life, so making it a memorable one is especially important.
Have you ever planned a night out with a group of friends, only to forget to actually decide on what you were going to do once you all got together? When that happens, there's usually valuable time wasted trying to determine where everyone should go. A lot of the time spent saying things like "Oh it doesn't matter to me. I'm good with whatever everyone else is good with." This is why it is important to take charge and make those decisions. If you plan ahead, you can't go wrong.
What Aspects Should You Consider?
The first thing you should get locked down is the date and length of the party. Is this going to be a destination bachelor party? Will it take place over a whole week, a weekend, or just one night? It is impossible to plan the party without knowing how much time you're working with and where you're going.
When that is settled, it's time to select a party bus. There are many factors to take into consideration when selecting the right vehicle for your event, so make sure you read our "How To" guide on that before moving on to planning the itinerary.
Once you have a date, time frame and bus settled on for the bachelor party, it is time to plan the itinerary. The most important thing you should consider is simple: what does the groom-to-be like? A bachelor party is a celebration of the groom, so you want to make sure he will actually enjoy the party you are planning for him. If he's not really a sports fan, then you probably don't want to take him to a sports bar, right? When you are thinking about a schedule of events for the day/weekend, be sure to take the groom into consideration.
Next, you should decide on the actual activities you're going to be doing. Pick locations. Decide how long you're going to stay at each stop. Since you're already spending the money on a party bus, set aside to actually sit around on the party bus, especially if most of your scheduled stops are in close proximity of one another.
Ultimately, planning any event is about remembering the little details, and the little detail that most people tend to forget during a bachelor party weekend? Hangovers. Make sure you leave enough time in the morning for everyone to get over their hangover, or make sure you rent a bus with a sofa or a bed so that some of your group can recover while you're on the road.
Finally, enjoy the ride and have fun!
