With this mind, I created this article with lots of ideas to create a great bachelor party and still keep it in a good budget.
This could be a gaming championship with the groom’s favorite online video games. One last binge with the boys before he has to pack up his joystick for good and settle down. Or you could help prepare him for the upcoming changes in his life by organizing physical games like charades.
One great game you can try after a few drinks have been consumed is Yoga Bingo. Here the numbers are replaced with yoga positions, and players have to reproduce them before they can mark them off. Of course, most mainstream operators, including leading online bingo brand, Gala will not necessarily carry this version of bingo. But you can find printable cards online or make your own.
There’s nothing quite like feeling sophisticated and superior while getting happily blotto. Implement a smart casual dress code. Buy a few bottles of good quality whiskey. Prepare some elegant munchies. And you’ve turned the night into an event. You can even bone up on your whiskey knowledge. Or hire a professional sommelier to add an extra element of class to the evening.
Get a Back to the Future vibe going and invite the guests to come as themselves, 30 yours in the future. Of course, we don’t expect you to hand out souped-up Delorean time machines. You can just tell the guest to dress how they imagine they will look in three decades. And they shouldn’t be afraid to use wigs and makeup. You could also bill the evening as a 30-year reunion of the groom-to-be’s crew. And ask the guests to imagine the backstory for their future lives and that this is the first time they have met since the upcoming perfect wedding.
Giving each guest a secret role, like a Russian sleeper spy or anonymous lottery winner, and then having the guests try to uncover each other’s secrets adds a whole new element of fun to the idea.
If the last idea appealed to you, you might even want to go the whole hog and organize a full-blown Agatha Christie-type murder mystery evening. Each guest is assigned a character like a butler, detective, etc. And as the story unfolds, clues are revealed to establish the identity of the murderer, if the guests are sharp-witted enough to pick them up!
