Organizing a buck party can be rather challenging, especially with a lot of guests whom you would like to impress. What you should keep in mind, however, is that this isn’t about you or the things you like. You may enjoy nude women and unlimited alcohol, but if the buck doesn’t, then things can easily turn into a disaster.
So how do you make sure the party will rock but not cause any trouble? You can’t say for sure, but here are tips to get you started:
It’s always smart to pick your activities according to who’s coming. If there will be older men, for instance, adjust your plans so that they too can be entertained.
Since there will likely be a lot of invitees who haven’t met in the past, an ice-breaking session before the party kicks off is always a good idea. You can do this any which way you want, but in many parties, they have every guest introduce themselves and tell everyone how they know the bride or groom.
Since alcohol is often a big part of most buck parties – if not always – it sure deserves a dedicated section here. There’s nothing special to say, however, except that you need to make sure that things start slow. It can be very disappointing to have people becoming drunk far too fast in a buck party.
If you’re planning to include dare games in your “program,” then do it. But consider how quickly these things can get wild out of control, everyone should be fine with the idea from the beginning.
As the one in charge of the party, be sure to have your mobile phone with you. Even if you’re a small group painting the town red, it’s easy to lose track of each other as the night wears on. Keeping everyone close won’t be such a feat if you have your phone with you. That kind of distraction is probably the last thing you want in a buck party.
The Bride and the Groom
If you’re thinking of playing a trick on the groom, be a hundred percent sure he can deal with it. Pre-wedding jitters and stress can seriously eat humour away, and you may end up with the very thing you wanted to avoid – a disaster. Don’t be surpised.
Whatever the specifics of your buck party plans, always keep these tips in mind. Most importantly, take it easy with the groom. He needs to attend his wedding!
