Well wedding season is upon us and we all know what that means. That’s right, bachelor party season is also in full swing and while your bride to be is busy trying to fit into her wedding dress, you are busy trying to come up with a good excuse for your stag.
Best men out there listen up and read these tips from The Bachelor Plan. Seriously, the last thing you want to do is end up in the strip clubs with a stupid t-shirt, because you can do that any day of the week.
Have at least a few weeks between the bachelor party and the wedding day; with so much alcohol and testosterone accidents are more likely to happen — and you want to avoid a situation that reads like the script for The Hangover (or maybe you don’t ?). A damaged/late/hungover groom is sure to drop your status as the “best man” in the eyes of the bride. And if you’re not popular with her, it’s not likely you’ll make any headway with the bridesmaids either…
#2 Plan ahead
If you can, give yourself at least two months of prep time. It’s not as easy as you think to get guys to commit to even the greatest of plans. Collect money ahead of time as well, or you’re sure to be left covering more than your share of the bill.
#3 Do not allow the bachelor to take part in planning his own party
Most guys like to think their friends know them well enough to throw them an awesome party (plus they can then say they were unaware of the debauchery planned if the bride finds out) Get some general ideas from the groom and then use the people that know him best to help out.
#4 Strip Clubs are lame
You don’t want the bachelor party to look like any old Friday night – plan something unique and original. If some dads are coming (especially the bride’s) plan some male bonding activity during the day and leave the naughty stuff until later that night (too late for the dads to stay up for).
#5 Never book a stripper off Craig’s list
You can never be guaranteed that what you get is what you see and her “moves” are probably minimal. Plus if she shows up high or late or doesn’t show at all, there’s no company to call to get another girl or refund your money.
Same goes for the Georgia Straight, I speak from experience.
