It can be challenging to put together a buck party, especially if many are coming and you want them all to have a blast. What you should keep in mind, however, is that this isn’t about you or the things you like. You may be all for vats of alcohol and nude girls, but unless the buck loves them to, the party could be plain disastrous.
So how do you make sure the party will rock but not cause any trouble? There’s no telling for sure, but the following basic tips can be your starter kit:
Always pick activities for the party based on the people who will be coming. If you’ll be inviting older men, for example, keep their entertainment in mind as you make plans.
As there will probably be a lot of people not having met before, you should have some type of ice-breaking activity before kicking off the party. This can be done however you want, but in many buck parties, this is done simply by having each guest give a self-introduction and tell the other guests how they know the couple.
Since alcohol is often a big part of most buck parties – if not always – it sure deserves a dedicated section here. There’s nothing special to say, however, except that you need to make sure that things start slow. You don’t want people getting drunk and not making it even halfway through the night.
If you’re planning to include dare games in your “program,” then do it. But consider how quickly these things can get wild out of control, everyone should be fine with the idea from the beginning.
Being the organizer of the party, you should have your mobile phone with you all throughout the night. You may be no more than a tiny bunch of people going about town, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get separated as the night wears on. Your phone can help you keep everyone close. That kind of distraction is probably the last thing you want in a buck party.
The Bride and the Groom
If you plan to play some kind of trick on the groom, make sure he can take it. Pre-wedding jitters and stress can seriously eat humour away, and you may end up with the very thing you wanted to avoid – a disaster. It’s shouldn’t be surprising.
No matter the details or specifics of your plans, be guided by the above tips. Most importantly, take it easy with the groom. He has to attend a wedding!
