It is quite possible that the groom’s part of the guest list is actually more excited about the stag party than the actual wedding. This means that it is up to you, the best man, to live up to these expectations. A stag do can mean several things – reconnecting with old friends, reliving the glory days, and sending your friend off into wedded bliss. To make sure that you cross all of these things off your list, here are some of the things you should be aware of such preparations:
The Venue Matters
Yes, the venue of the party will set the entire tone for the day or night out. Due to this, you can’t have a vague idea of where you want to end – you need to plan everything. Furthermore, you should also not rely on tried-and-true locations. These can quickly get boring and you might find the entire group lacklustre after only a couple of hours out. A great way to switch things up is with party boats. These allow you privacy, an excuse to turn off your phones, and still manage to keep things from getting too out of hand. It is the perfect venue so you should certainly consider it.
Set the Right Date
There are a couple of things to consider when deciding the date of the party. One of the most important things, however, is not to have the bash too close to the actual wedding. At the very least, try for the weekend before the nuptials. The groom is going to need some time to recover from all of the festivities so it is a good idea to have the bash well in advance. Not to mention, this prevents any last minute rush the next day.
Balance Out the Wild with Bonding Time
There is no denying that a stag do is a great time to let loose and have some X-rated fun. This could mean raunchy games or hiring a couple of exotic dancers for the night. After all, this is precisely what these type of occasions call for. However, don’t forget that this a great bonding experience as well. Once your friend is married, he may not be able to spend as much time with you as he used to. So, it is a great time to reminisce and talk. As long as you create a balance between the two atmospheres, it should be a fun time for all.
Tailor the Activities to Your Friend
Since the day (or the night) is all about them, you should make sure to plan things that they actually like to do. So, try to include the music he likes, his favourite foods, and things he wants to do. At the same time, make sure that there is plenty of things that will keep everyone moving. The last thing you want is for people to be seated down for long periods of time. Organise music, games or other activities to make sure that everyone is on their feet and being entertained. It’s good to get that adrenaline pumping and will ensure that all the guests have a good time.
These are the tips that you should consider when planning your friend’s bachelor party. This will give you a better idea of what you should do and which things you should simply stay away from.
