Get Guidelines from the Groom

The first thing you need to do before jumping into the planning is to find out what the groom is comfortable with. Ask him about what he wants to get a better idea of what you should plan on doing.

Most importantly, you want to get his opinion on things like strippers, alcohol, drug use, and gambling. If he’s not comfortable with any of those, don’t include them in the party.

Now, onto the planning!

How to Plan a Bachelor Party

Here’s how to plan a bachelor party. While it may sound more fun to just wing it, trust us; it’s better to have a plan.

Guest List

The first thing you need to do is settle on the guest list. Generally, this should consist of all the guys in the bridal party along with any other close friends the groom may want to come.


You don’t need to set down an exact schedule, but you should at least have an idea for how long each of your activities is going to take and how long it’s going to take to get from place to place.


There are so many things you can do for your bachelor party. You don’t need to be confined to bars or hotel rooms.

Here are a few quick ideas for bachelor parties:

  • Paintball
  • Bowling
  • Gun range
  • Water sports
  • Hiking or camping

Make sure you check with the groom to see what he would enjoy most!


Something else to consider is how you’re going to get from place to place. This is particularly important if there’s going to be drinking. Hiring a Limo is a great way to avoid having to designate a driver.


The final thing you need to plan is food. Pick a favorite restaurant for the groom’s and plan on going there for dinner.

You may also want to have a few other options picked out near your activities. Then, if the party is long enough that people start to get hungry again, you can have a few choices ready.
