Bachelor Party Budgeting

Posted by Filed Under Bachelor Party, Best Man, The Groom with Comments Off on Bachelor Party Budgeting

Sometimes things get tough.  Planning a big party with friends can be costly and such costs can add up quickly.  This is an event that requires you to go outside your normal monthly fixed costs – rent, groceries, car insurance, gas, etc.  What if you don’t sell enough tickets in time? What if unexpected costs come up? What if someone backs out last minute? Financial questions as such can hinder your ability to plan the big bachelor party you envisioned for your buddy.  We’ve got a few tips for you to consider, before you start taking up extra hours at work or cutting back on your personal necessities.

 Do Your Homework:

Know what is available, see if you can get it cheaper and if not, determine what can be expendable.  This allows you to prioritize what is considered to be ‘important’ and what can be extracted, should you need to cut back on some costs.  You want to plan a huge party, but you wouldn’t want the event to go above and beyond your allowance.  Say you’re thinking about getting bottle service at a club and limo transportation. You may want to think about cutting back on the bottle service and just have your buddies come along with you and The Groom via limo.  This way, your guests can pay for their own beverages rather than have the bottle service, yet they can enjoy the luxury and comfort of going to the club and riding home in a limo altogether, not worrying about parking or appointing anyone to be designated driver.

 Hire An Event Planner:

 Sometimes, especially when you’re on a budget, an event planner can come in handy because he or she can work within the parameters of your budget.  They would have the expertise and resources to plan an event as cost-efficient as possible.  Your event planner can still arrange for quality entertainment and work with you on how you can include specific and unique features you want at a lower cost.

 Plot Your Budget:

 In order for a successful party to be held, you need to know where your funds are going.  From catering, to buying cases of beer, to decorations, you need to set up a spreadsheet of the costs needed for each item.  List the items vertically and next to each one write its quantity and price.  From there you can determine how much you can charge your friends and family members for tickets and figure out what can be considered expendable, should costs get too high.

 Know Your Guests:

Ensure your guests are fully aware of any costs they may need to pay.  The costs can include purchasing a ticket, to meals, to parking.  Have your guests be aware that once they purchase a ticket and they later decide that they no longer wish to attend, they need to sell it to someone else, rather than returning their ticket to you and asking for money back.  Your guests ideally would be your best friends and close relatives like a brother or first cousin and they normally wouldn’t have a problem supporting you with the event by purchasing a ticket.  However, once you invite those outside your circle of friends, acquaintances or other friends of The Groom you hardly know, make sure the rules of purchasing tickets and what each ticket can offer guests is made very clear.

The Gambling Bachelor Party: Casino, Betting, The Track.

Posted by Filed Under Bachelor Party, Best Man, The Groom, Unique Party Ideas with Comments Off on The Gambling Bachelor Party: Casino, Betting, The Track.

 Many of you are thinking: “What’s a bachelor party without alcohol, my best buds and sexy strippers dancing around us?”  While that question does make sense to the majority of the male population, trying something different like a casino night (even if you plan it prior to attending a strip club) can be quite entertaining.  With rows upon rows of slot machines, tables with card games, Roulette and Black Jack, the casino is a modern-day playground for adults.  However, gambling doesn’t end at the casino.  Visit Woodbine Race Track and bet on the best breeds and see if you’re lucky enough to score some extra coin off a winning horse.  Of course, there are many ways to bet on the horse races – daily double, pick 3, and so on.  Plus most facilities will provide you with instruction sheets if you’re new to betting.  What’s even better about these places is that your friends can kick back, socialize amongst each other and grab some food as well.  Here are some suggested gambling endeavors:

 The Casino

 The casino is without a doubt the place where adults come to play at all hours of the day up until the wee hours of the morning.  This is undoubtedly one of the places where you and your friends can spend hours in!  Who knows? One of you may even walk out of there a millionaire.  But unrealistic expectations aside, you and your buddies can spend time gambling and eventually dine at one of the casino’s restaurants followed by seeing a live show.  Transportation is usually the easiest to arrange when going to a casino.  If you and your buddies are looking to go to Casino Rama, for instance, their website brings up a list of coach bus services traveling there.  On the drop-down menu, select the city you’re coming from and the website will then pull up a list of pick-up dates, places and times, making your casino arrangements that much easier and no one has to volunteer to drive. Too drunk to get home at the end of a gambling night? Most casinos come equipped with hotel packages and continental breakfast to chase your hangover away the next day. 

 Horse Racing

 Betting on slim odds are not always a favourite, however, it can quickly become an addiction once you get a feel for the stronger breed, or winning horses.  Start off by betting something small.  Woodbine racetracks allow a person to bet an amount as little as $2.  From there you increase your betting amount as you begin to get comfortable with your bets and betting styles.  Check out Wegz Stadium Bar as well for off-track betting and high quality televisions to view sports games on (for those in your group not looking to gamble).  Wegz also has designated areas for group events complete with golf simulators, arcade games and lounge areas that you and your friends can book for a bachelor party. 

 Betting on your Favourite Hockey Team

 If you’re looking for something simple but not too standardized like your regular boys’ night in playing poker, check out a live Leafs game (or hockey team of your choice) and agree to bet on the odds your favourite team will win.  This puts an exciting gambling ‘twist’ to viewing a sports game and for the gambling amateurs out there, it will make watching the game that much more exciting.  You can make things interesting by arranging to take a shot every time your favourite team scores a goal? Or you can buy the groom a beer when the opposing team scores? – Create the bets as the game continues for added excitement.
