Alternative Ideas for Planning a Bachelor Party

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Bachelor parties often get a bad wrap by people, especially nervous brides. Many people assume that a bachelor party consists of heavy drinking, strippers, and lap dances. However, this is not always true. A groom has many other options for a more toned down bachelor party, and in fact these are becoming more and more popular as traditional bachelor parties become more of a negative stigma. Either way, the bride and groom should be on the same page regarding what is acceptable for the bachelor party. Some brides do not mind alcohol and strippers, and some are dead set against it. Here are some alternative ideas for planning a bachelor party that is not conducive to traditional stigmas.

Poker night
Poker nights are a great idea for grooms who love to play cards. It is a great idea for a bachelor party because it is more low key and laid back, but it is still a great thing to do with the guys the night before you get married. Of course there should be plenty of food available at a poker night, and consider purchasing some fine cigars and nice beer. This is a great way to celebrate with your friends without getting carried away and insulting your bride. In addition, it prevents a pounding hangover the day of your wedding.

Sporting event
Attending a sporting event is a great idea for a bachelor party. It is one of the guys favorite things to do together. Baseball, beer, and hot dogs. There really couldn’t be a better way to celebrate your wedding with your friends than that. In addition, this kind of bachelor party is one that everyone in the wedding party can attend, including minors, and family. If you are in charge of planning the party always run plans by the groom, but consider getting a block of tickets to his favorite in season sports team.

Make sure that you begin planning ahead of time. The last thing you want to do to your betrothed buddy is throw him a crappy bachelor party that has been thrown together at the list minute. If you are planning a stripper-free bachelor party, consider some of the alternatives above. They will ensure that you and your friends have a great time and that everyone stays out of trouble.
