Organizing a buck party can be rather challenging, especially with a lot of guests whom you would like to impress. 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 see to it that the party actually rocks without causing problems? You can’t say for sure, but here are tips to get you started:
It’s always smart to pick your activities according to who’s coming. If older men will be coming, for example, be sure they will be entertained as well.
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. You can do it any way you want, but a common choice is having each person introduce themselves and talk about their relationship with the couple.
Obviously, alcohol plays a huge part in most – if not all – buck parties, so it deserves its own section here. Nothing special about it though, but you do have to make it a point to start things off gradually. It can be very disappointing to have people becoming drunk far too fast in a buck party.
If you’re thinking of having dare games as part of the night’s “program,” do it by all means. But remember that these things can quickly spiral out of control, so make sure everyone is up for the idea right from the start.
As the party’s organizer, it’s a must to keep your cellphone with you wherever you go. 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. With your phone, keeping everybody close won’t be such a task. Who needs that kind of distraction anyway?
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 not something you should be surprised with.
Whatever the specifics of your buck party plans, always keep these tips in mind. Most importantly, take it easy with the groom. He needs to attend his wedding!
