Are you assigned to planning a bucks night party? Are you running out of bucks night ideas? Well, this blog will be here to guide you! While it is nice that somebody has entrusted you with such an important part of their life, it can also be a huge responsibility and one which can understandably cause a great deal of stress and anxiety.
It can be extremely challenging to organize a trip away with a large group of friends, and there are sure to be a few obstacles along the way. It can be helpful to know a few tips if you are flying to a different country, or staying in a rented pool place, all of which should help to make the planning of the trip much more relaxed and ensure that it is a complete success.
The works should begin as soon as you are assigned with planning the event. It should involve speaking to the groom and finding out who they want to come to the party and when the best dates are. It is then a matter of getting in touch with everyone to make sure that they can attend.
Fortunately, social media is a helpful tool for doing this, or you can start a large group text conversation which will allow you to discuss ideas, answer questions, and plan surprises together.
BE READY AND KNOW YOUR DESTINATION
Picking somewhere to go is a huge challenge because you will want to find somewhere that the groom will enjoy spending time, but it must also be somewhere realistic and within everyone’s budget. Put a few ideas to the group and see if there are any ideas which the majority are favouring.
Keep in mind that you can’t please everyone and that it is all about the groom having a good time. Once you have decided on a destination, you should book accommodation and start looking into activities for the group to enjoy.
Also, keeping track of who has paid for what can be difficult especially if it is a large group. This is why it is helpful to create a spreadsheet at the start which has everyone’s name and the various expenses that need to be paid. This way, you can easily check these off as people pay. Give people deadlines to pay for as otherwise, you could be chasing up money after the event.
PLAN OUT AN OUTRAGEOUS GAMES!
No kick-ass party is complete without a round of games to add spice. Get as creative as you can with this one and come up with games which will work for both the bride and the groom’s squad. Take help from the other side because they are in it as much as you are.
You can make the crowd go gaga over games like- pop the cherry, never have I ever (with a bridal twist), Khoi bag and a quiz about the bride and groom. We promise that your party will be the talk of the town for years to come.
All you alcohol lovers, it’s time to show your real skills for the party. Come up with quirky cocktails which are theme-centric. Create mind-blowing cocktails, old-fashioned drinks, and whatnot. Bring out the bartender in you to get all the party people to consume copious amount of alcohol because let’s face it; no party is a big hit if people are going to bed sober.
HIRE A FUNKY AND EASY GOING PHOTOGRAPHER
As a groom-to-be, unless you have a full-service planner, there’s not much about getting married where you can just sit back and enjoy the ride, except for the bachelor’s party. You can hire a professional photographer to document your bachelors night, and honestly, it will the best money you spent in a while.
Okay, the first part of this one is super extra. But if you have friends who get into photo-taking or will indulge you go ahead and make the ask for coordinating outfits. You wear white, they wear black, or maybe everybody has matching jackets. Or in my case, everyone wore fun patterns, but the colours were in coordinating families. As silly as it sounds, the pictures will look better. And be open to taking suggestions from your photographer.
If getting pro pics of your celebration sounds like something you want to try, there are a lot of options around Melbourne!
