When To Start Planning Your Bachelor Party

Posted by Filed Under Bachelor Party, Best Man with Comments Off on When To Start Planning Your Bachelor Party

Your friend called you late last night and told you the great news – He’s engaged!  He’s ready to wear the proverbial “ball-and-chain” and turn his girlfriend of four years into his wife and you couldn’t be happier for him.  What’s more is that your buddy Planning a bachelor party and drinking beerhas asked you to be the best man.  Should you accept your new title, a whole slew of responsibilities are expected of you.  One of the many responsibilities of being crowned, “The Best Man” is to plan the bachelor party of a lifetime.  Remember, the bachelor party is not just for your engaged buddy, but also a night of entertainment for friends and colleagues.  We’ve broken down every major part of the bachelor party planning to help you.  Bust out your calendar and start jotting down these important dates:

You Were Just Appointed The Best Man:

You’re probably not sure what you want to do yet, so you might want to start doing some research.  Ask your friends, male family members, colleagues and even the groom-to-be what would work best for a bachelor party.  By the following week, you should have some concrete ideas.

Setting The Date:

Does the groom have the wedding date set?  Even if it’s not till next year, plan the bachelor party ideally one to two weeks before the wedding day.  This is mostly because the bride and groom will be extremely busy within the last few days leading up to their wedding day and they will need all the time they can to finalize details (and rest, too!).

Ten Weeks Before The Bachelor Party:

A club? A concert? You should have a concrete party idea set by now. Speak with an event consultant on specific party features.  Budget yourself, too – keep a spreadsheet of all the costs you will incur.

Eight Weeks Before The Bachelor Party:

Your bachelor party tickets should be designed and printed by now.  Decide with the groom on an agreeable price to charge guests for each ticket.  Remember, a portion of the ticket price will go to support the groom once he’s married.  Facebook or e-mail invites won’t work because you’ll never know who’s actually interested in coming and you will end up making your rounds calling everyone to confirm.

Six Weeks Before The Bachelor Party:

Round up the male members of the bridal party to start selling tickets with you.  Tickets should be given to friends, family members, colleagues and basically anyone who wants to party and support the groom-to-be.

Two To Three Weeks Before The Bachelor Party:

Once tickets have begun selling, you’ll get a rough estimate of guest numbers.  This is when you will begin arranging for a type of transportation – either by limo or you could get a hotel room near the venue.  Who ever wants in on the limo or a hotel room has to pay their fair share this week so you can book the necessary arrangements.  A hotel or limo eliminates having your friends show up at different times, worry about parking and/or choose a designated driver.

The Week Of The Bachelor Party:

Finalize transportation arrangements or hotel room, VIP booth and so on.  Pay any outstanding fees. If you’re getting a hotel room, make sure a cold pack of beer is waiting for you all in the mini fridge.  Don’t just sit there, start planning..

Playing it Safe: Guys Night Out

Posted by Filed Under Bachelor Party, Best Man, The Groom with Comments Off on Playing it Safe: Guys Night Out

Once everything’s planned out, there’s no telling how an evening with drinks, clubs and dancing women will turn out.  Of course, the groom-to-be is going to have the best night of his life – no doubt you’re going to make absolute sure of that as the bachelor party organizer.  However, there are some issues to consider that my happen unexpectedly.  These are the issues that could be the “elephant in the room,” or in other words, the concerns no one would dare talk about because it is often a touchy discussion.  Remember: The bachelor party should be full of good memories and you as the planner need to think ahead to allow everything to run smoothly.  Here are some ways in which the groom can have an amazing time, without causing any worry to his buddies. 

 Have Everyone’s Number Handy

 Of course, you wouldn’t think about having the groom’s little brother’s number handy because he was never really in your circle of friends.  However, if he is aware of the stag and invited, it’s important to have his number and anyone else who is attending.  Now I just used his little brother as an example, but the core idea is to ensure you have everyone’s number handy – even those you hardly know who are also going to be attending that night.  Should any unexpected problem or emergency arise, you would need to get a hold of everyone immediately.

 Meet Up Spot

Now I know you’re not a five-year-old anymore and hopefully do not require a “safe spot” toTaxi Cab Safe Way To Party meet up with your mom when you get lost in a mall. However, jokes aside, there should be a designated area for you and your buddies to meet up in case you all separate during the party.  At a club, some of your buddies will be meeting and talking to women, while others will be getting drinks for everyone else in your party and you may not be together at all times.  While having a VIP area is a great idea to more or less keep everyone together, ensure that there is a time and an additional meeting place as well, especially if you’ve arranged for a limo to pick everyone up or even just to allow guests to give a congratulatory farewell to the groom-to-be before going home.

 A Way Home

 Be it a hotel, a limo or a taxi, make sure all your friends are taken care of if they plan on drinking and partying very hard.  The groom will have an amazing time, but a party is composed of many people and when it comes to safety, you as the planner need to ensure everyone is looked after.  If some of the friends in your group do not know how they’re getting home and tell you they will “figure it out once the night is over” then it’s time to take some extra precautions – just in case.  Furthermore, even if you have a limo and there seems to be a set number of people traveling together to-and-from, you need to account for the few “last minute” friends who plan on showing up at the venue later on in the night and may not fit the maximum capacity of passengers for your limo going home.  This is especially true if they get really drunk and are unable to drive.  Earlier in the evening, it would be wise to add the phone number of a taxi service company to your cell phone.  This way, if anyone needs a taxi, you can call a cab for him immediately.  It could come in handy should any of your buddies be too drunk to go home “their own way.”  It’s better to be safe than sorry and being prepared could save a life.
