Tips To Make Your New York City Bachelor Party Successful
- If you're planning on hitting a couple different spots, and you've got six or seven guys, it is not only more fun but also cheaper to rent a limo rather than taking cabs.
Leave the cameras at home
- while you know nothing bad happened, that picture of the groom's face in a stripper's cleavage may make the bride think otherwise.
Decide on a budget for yourself before you go out
- otherwise you may end up gambling away your life savings, or giving it all to a beautiful dancer. Las Vegas has a way of convincing you that you don't really need your money.
No matter what a stripper tells you, your money matters far more to her than how special you are. That's okay, she's just earning a living, but don't be the fool. If Las Vegas is too far to go, you might also consider having a weekend of decadence closer to home. There won't be the legalized gambling, but bill it as a Hollywood weekend where the groom is the star, and be sure to have plenty of champagne, limousines, spa treatments, dinner at fine restaurants, and flirting with pretty girls.
Co-ed Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties
The groom's not looking to do anything he wouldn’t do in front of his girlfriend, the bride's got some good looking friends, and you're hoping the maid of honor will help you with the planning. Whether it's just a blowout house party, or an evening of debauchery, a coed bachelor party can be a great solution. This is also a great solution for the increasing number of couples who don't have a bridal party and thus must either forgo the rite of passage, or have to plan it themselves.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure the groom is front and center in your planning. While you want everyone to have a good time, he's the one who really matters. If he's a low-key kind of guy, maybe a night of drinking and puking is not the best idea. Also, keep in mind that there's no reason you can't do a combination of these bachelor party ideas – perhaps a golf tournament during the day, followed by a steak and cigar party that evening. Pick a few different activities and keep everyone happy.
