PLANNING A BACHELOR PARTY

Your boy just entrusted you with the one of the most sacred and sought after duties: planning the Bachelor Party.
Don’t drop the ball on this one. Don’t miss the chance to make yourself look like Hugh Hefner. Hiring your own
entertainment, the tools below will ensure the party goes off without a hitch.
   

1. Provide safe transportation. No one wants to be the designated driver. Plan on renting reliable transportation.
Limos, buses or trolleys are surprisingly affordable, convenient, and fun. Make the town know you are celebrating!
Everybody’s safety (especially the Groom) should be the first thing you plan on. Look into local rental transportation
 in your area. Stock it with booze! Crash at someone’s place at the end of the night and have breakfast together.

2. Plan on something that the Groom will enjoy. This isn’t about what you want to do. It’s all about the bachelor.
Ask him prior to planning the Bachelor Party what he wants to do and discuss dates that might work.

3. Make sure you plan in advance. You need to make sure nobody has any conflicts or previous engagements.
It’s not really a bachelor party if only two people show up. It’s actually a date. A month or two prior
to the wedding is appropriate. Check with the Bride and suggest having the Bachelor Party the same weekend
as the Bachelorette Party.

4. Ask the Groom for a list of emails or numbers of the guys that he’d like to have attend. Don’t invite random
guys just to off-set the costs. Nothing is worse than having a group of guys you don’t know at your Bachelor Party.

5. Talk to the guys in the group and decide what might be an affordable budget. Once you have a budget, stick to it.
 Have everyone pitch in. There’s no reason why you should have to carry the entire financial burden.

6. Keep the Bachelor in the loop. Most guys like nice surprises, but most guys don’t like surprises that
come attached with a cross-dressing Chinese midget.

7. Be aware of the Bride. As the Best man, you may want to talk with the Bride to get her “okay” on the
 festivities. If the Bachelor Party is a surprise, the bride could write a note to the Groom stating her
 blessing for good clean fun. If the Bride has a short chain on your boy…take note…and proceed with caution.
   

8. Keep your man out of trouble. Another no brainer. You want to be sure your bachelor-to-be doesn’t do
anything he will regret for the rest of his life. You may have to slap him around a bit. But, he will
thank you in the morning when he’s sober. Remember that he must be alive, healthy, and free of any STDS
before the big day.

9. Provide the venue.Strip Clubs are not suitable for Bachelor Parties, who wants to sit on their hands with
50 or 100 guys you don't know . . Have your own strippers,  (recommended) make sure the venue
(bar, hotel or house) is Stripper Friendly. Double check to make sure everything
is cool so the party isn’t cut short!

10. Make sure the Bachelor and everybody attending has a great time. Plenty of booze helps with this!
Don’t run out!
   

11. Most “exotic” dancers will have special packages for Bachelor Parties.

12. Important Note for the GROOM: Regardless of how tempted you are, don’t have too much fun at your
Bachelor Party. Remember that the decisions you make now will affect you for the rest of your life.
Don’t let 10 minutes of pleasure ruin the rest of your life.
   

"Enjoy yourself and play safe!"
