Three Easy Steps for Planning A Bachelor Party

Three Easy Steps for Planning A Bachelor Party

Planning a bachelor party is no easy feat.  Sure, some people might seem to have a knack for it, but it is still quite a lot of work.  If the movies have any truth to them, a bachelor party can quickly take an ugly turn, but that’s only really if you let things get out of hand. Indeed, you should really put in the work to plan your bachelor party if you want to have a truly memorable time that will honor your friendships (and your future matrimony).

That in mind, here are three basic steps to planning a quality Secrets bachelor party.

The WHERE

As the groom-to-be you probably prefer that your best man plans the bachelor party but that is often a mistake. Or, rather, maybe you should not leave it all up to your groomsmen.  Instead, you should have some ideas of places or activities or events that you would enjoy or prefer and let the boys do the leg work.  If you are lucky, your boys will know you well enough that they can present you with some ideas to let you offer a few preferences.  Having even the slightest discussion about this could be the difference between a perfectly tawdry night in the city and a debaucherous—and often ridiculously expensive—weekend in Las Vegas.

The WHEN

Once you have an idea for the location you should also get an idea of the bachelor’s calendar.  If you are the soon-to-be newlywed, you can share your availability with the gang. If you are planning the party, though, make sure he is going to be available for the full extent of the event; and remember to plan around normal holidays and popular vacation times, as the boys might already have plans (and hotels get harder to book).

The WHO

No matter who he is, the bachelor is always going to assume that his gang is ready to drop everything to head off for this monumental event but lets be realistic:  work, family, and other commitments complicate the guest list.  And the more complex—and lengthy—the event, the harder it is going to be to get everyone to commit.  

The ideal group size is no more than 10.   Any more than this and you run the risk of splitting up at restaurants and bars which splinters the group and the social dynamic.
