sent out at least a month in advance
A bachelor party, more commonly known as a bachelor’s weekend, stag night or stag do, or even a bucks party is an event or party organized/arranged by a man who soon will become married. It is meant to be a last ditch effort at one last celebration of the single life before marriage to mark his final year as an unmarried man. A stag party can be thrown for a man who has just gotten married or for a bachelor who has yet to get married. The invitations to such an event should be sent out at least a month in advance.
The bachelor party or stag night is thrown or arranged around a central theme. It could be based on a movie, TV show, sport or theme park. The theme could either be a weekend get-away for the bride and groom or one that lasts the whole month. The party could involve dinner, a movie, bowling or even poker or other card games. The cost of the entire event should be at least a hundred dollars, and could go up into the thousand range depending on the scope and size of the gathering.
bachelor party for a groom
If you are throwing a bachelor party for a groom who already has a significant other, you might want to ask him to give you some time to get away before tying the knot so you both can plan things together. That way you won’t have to stress out about your wedding plans right away. The groom can give you a heads up about the party a few weeks before it happens. You might want to send him a gift for his next birthday or graduation date so he remembers and gets excited about the upcoming event. When he knows it’s going to be a special last night with you before you tie the knot, he’ll be extra excited.
Bridesmaids and groomsmen can also take part in bucks party ideas that involve them. If you have a great group of guys who love to watch sports, you could invite all of them over for a tailgate party. They can bring their gear and they can all stand around watching the TV in the dark before and after the wedding. There are so many different party themes that only a small group of people need to take part in.
pretend to be medieval figures
A fun idea for a bucks party is to have a bachelor party in a castle. You and your groom can pretend to be medieval figures and you can play a prince or princess while you and your friends play jousting. Why not hire a real prince or princess for the occasion? You could pick something from your high school years like the little one that sat by you in class or maybe the football player that sat behind you during your senior year. You can dress them in your best costume and have everyone else dress similarly in the same color scheme.
Whatever you decide to do for your bachelor or bachelorette party, just remember to have fun! Having a bucks party isn’t about tradition, it’s about having a good time and enjoying the company of friends. Everyone should enjoy themselves and the best way to do this is to have a good time. Let loose and have a good time with the family and have a great pre wedding celebration.
