Bachelor Party Checklist

Entertainment

  • Find out how the man of honor wants to spend his last big night as a bachelor.
  • You could go to dinner and then hit the bars, take a weekend hiking trip or spend a night at the casino. Other options include driving ranges, bungee jumping, professional sporting events, bowling, laser tag, movies, sky diving, rock climbing and batting cages.

Food and beverages

Transportation

Accommodations

Give your favorite groom-to-be a night to remember by planning the ultimate bachelor party. A lot of preparation can go into the big event, from buying event tickets to making dinner reservations to taking care of transportation needs. Rather than wasting time trying to remember if you called the restaurant back or got a tee time at the golf range, make a list of everything you need to be bachelor party-ready.

Tips

  • Keep a first-aid kit handy. Bring one along for tending to mid-party bruises and scrapes.
  • Avoid having the party the day before the wedding, or the day of. Those who do this are generally not in the best shape at the altar.
  • Have a long talk with the groom before planning the event. Create a party or weekend that suits his tastes to avoid any ill-received surprises.
  • Bring a camera or two. Document the night by taking pictures; if one of your friends is a photographer consider asking him to take over picture duty.
  • Purchase a few gag gifts. Give the groom-to-be a special hat to wear as well as other goofy items to keep things lively.
