bachelor party

If one of your close friends is soon to get married, you may be entrusted with the task of throwing the most memorable bachelor party ever. So, you might be wondering where to start and what to do. Don’t worry about it. We are here to give you some general guides and a few creative ideas for the most unforgettable bachelor party of a century.

Who organises the bachelor party?

Traditionally speaking, it is usually the groom’s best man who organizes the bachelor party. However, you don’t have to stick to traditions if you don’t want to. For instance, maybe the groom wants to plan the party himself. On the other hand, maybe a few of the groom’s friends want to gather and organize a party together. Whatever you choose to do, just make sure you are organizing a party according to what the groom wants and likes.

When is the best time for a bachelor party?

When organizing a bachelor party, you need to be delicate about the timing. The party should definitely be at some time leading up to the wedding. However, it should be close enough to the wedding date but not too close. The groom will need time after the party to sober up and get ready for the wedding so the night before the wedding is definitely not a good choice. Usually, a few days or a week before the wedding is just fine.

Who gets invited to the bachelor party?

This factor may be the most important and it should be consulted with the groom. While the rest of the party may stay a surprise, the guest list is best to be consulted with the groom himself. You should take into consideration what the groom wants because it is a party for him after all. So, maybe he wants a more low-key bachelor party with just a few close friends, or maybe he wants a full-on bachelor party at the club with lots of friends. It all depends on what the groom wants so make sure to talk to him first.

How involved should the groom be in planning the bachelor party?

Lastly, should the groom be involved in the organization process? That also depends on what you decide to do. If you want it to be a surprise, don’t include the groom, but make sure to listen to what he’s talking about whenever you mention the bachelor party so you can make sure you are organizing a bachelor party that he will actually enjoy.

Ideas for Bachelor Party

Here are a few creative bachelor party ideas you might want to use.

Weekend getaway

You can organize an adventurous weekend getaway with some of the closest groom’s friends. You can road trip to another city or go to the beach. This is a great opportunity for all of you to get out of town for the weekend to relax and have fun a few days before the wedding.

Outdoor activities

If the groom is into extreme sports and outdoor activities, you can organize a fun trip for a few of you where you can participate in fun outdoor activities like camping, sky diving, snorkeling, and so on. It can be a great way to spend some time outdoors, get some fresh air, and have an amazing time.

Go clubbing

Clubbing is always a classic option amongst Australians. You can take the groom to some of the most exotic Melbourne brothels for his bachelor party if that’s what he would enjoy for a bachelor party surprise.

Paintball or laser tag

If all the groom’s friends are into playing team games, you can organize a bachelor party that’s going to be either a paintball or laser tag game. This can be the perfect bachelor party after which you can go out for drinks or dinner.


In conclusion, when organizing a bachelor party, make sure to take what the groom wants and likes into consideration. Make sure you organize the party that the groom will enjoy by inviting the people whose company he wants for his special day and don’t hesitate to be creative about the theme of the party.
