Bachelor Party Planning is the procedure of planning, organizing and setting up a party held for a bachelor, a person who is about to get married, also called the groom-to-be. A bachelor party represents the final night of freedom in family commitments and social dependencies of the groom before taking the oath of marriage. Usually, stag parties are being planned by the best man; either he is the groom’s older or younger brother, or a very special friend to him. The job of the best man is like tying a knot – he needs to tie the knot nicely but tight. As to planning a bachelor party, he needs to ensure that every aspect of the event is well-planned to make the one last night of merrymaking with all the guys closest to the groom a very great rewarding moment before he make the big “I Do.”
To plan for a bachelor party, the best man should have a serious conversation with the groom. Doing a party planning needs both the groom and his best man to talk about many things in order for the event to become special and unforgettable. The very first thing that the planner should do is to ask the groom what kind of stag party he likes. Oftentimes, grooms prefer camping out, cruising some nightspots and hanging out on clubs for a beer party. It is good to ask the groom what he wants for the event. But if the groom is still confused on what kind of party he likes to have, then altered the party to fit the character or personality of the groom. If he loves soccer, then go to a soccer field to watch a soccer game.
After knowing the groom’s preferences, discuss the probable dates and times on when the party will be held. Try not to confuse the groom about deciding anything about the party except by telling him that both of you needs to set a date, locate for a venue, and gather the names of your guests to be included in the guest list. After discussing these things, start estimating the total costs ahead of time. But when it is a big stag party, the best man should talk with the groom about setting the date and time, considering the budget, building a guest list, sending invitations to guests, choosing a theme of the party, booking of the venue and planning for the menu.
The planning is about to be completed, but there’s one more thing left to be discussed – how the invitation goes. Of course, guests and VIPs need to be invited. If the party is a formal one, hard-copy invitations are to be released, but for less formal parties, electronic invitations such as emails, blogs and text messages are suitable to use. In every party planning, creating invitations is necessary, for these serves as the “informant” of whom and how many are invited in the party. Make sure all the information about the event will reach out the guests to ensure that the celebration will be held according to plan.
As the best man of the groom, do not hesitate on creating a very special bachelor party. After all the days of being under family, academic and social commitments, the stag party is the groom’s last chance to party with the closest guys of his life before he walks along the wedding carpet. Hereafter, a bachelor party planning must be done properly and effectively in order to have a very wonderful party for the bachelor…
