Throwing a Surprise Bachelor Party? Here Are Some Helpful Tips

Bachelor parties are a fun way to send off your buddy before he walks down the aisle at his wedding. While they can take some planning and a lot of coordination between all of the friends and groomsmen, it is rather easy to plan an unforgettable party.

While the traditional idea is to go to an exotic dance club, that idea seems too overplayed and maybe everyone is not up for it. That is fine because these are some interesting and fun ways to include everyone in the fun and make it a great bachelor party.

  1. Drinking Games

Even if marriage means a changing of your life, and more maturity and responsibility, it does not mean you have to stop having fun with your friends! Plan a party for your friend where you can host some drinking games. Pong, flip cup, and many other games are easy to set up and fun to play. You can even get customized shot glasses to really make it feel like a special party. These games should only be played by those who are legally allowed to drink and should be done responsibly. Bachelor parties are fun but do not get too wild, you or your groomsmen still need to be at your best when getting ready for the big day.

  1. Gifts

Hosting a bachelor party for your friend is a good way to give him some gifts he might need as a newlywed. It would be a good idea to keep their apartment stocked with nice chocolates, champagnes, or even a nice journal, especially ones at, which are perfect for a groom. There all sorts of stuff a newly married man could need, but keep in mind that a great gift, like chocolate, fruit or cheese baskets mentioned earlier, can be used by both partners.

  1. Party Getaway

Although it is on the pricier end of planning a bachelor party, a vacation or destination party is surely a great time. You can do a road trip, bar crawl in a new city or go tropical. Whatever you choose, there are many options to plan for an in-town vacation like the bar crawl, going somewhere across the country, or going abroad. Planning a trip with a group of your groomsmen or friends can be tricky so it is important to plan it early, and if it is a surprise, make sure the grooms schedule can accommodate it!


Throwing a fun and unforgettable bachelor party is not a difficult task. There are a lot of ways to have fun that can include all of your friends and groomsmen. As well as making sure the groom has the best time he can!

You can entertain by hosting a party with drinking games that include customized glassware. There are gifts you can buy for the groom that can be helpful for him and his partner. Finally, you can go big and plan a full blown vacation bachelor party, or keep it local and do some fun “staycation” relaxing in town.
