The best man is responsible for throwing the bachelor party for the groom and his friends. The bachelor party is a tradition, which began in ancient Rome. It was the last farewell to being single party for the groom and his friends to enjoy themselves one last time before the groom committed himself to wedded bliss. A bachelor party can be loud and rowdy, with single women included in the merry making, or a bachelor party can simply be a gathering of friends, engaging in their own kind of fun, to enjoy a night out before the wedding. Although, the best man is in charge of the planning and the event of a bachelor party, the party is for the groom and his likes and dislikes are respected, in the theme and location as well as the guests to his bachelor party.
Planning a bachelor party takes some time that cannot be put off until the last minute, if you want to pull off an incredible bachelor party. Sometimes throwing a bachelor party can cause a bride to worry and may even cause problems for the soon to be couple, therefore, when deciding on your party theme, you will need either to take into the consideration the feelings of the bride, or simply not let her in on the bachelor party theme and agenda. It is hoped that the females will be able to throw a bachelorette party to get her mind off any insecurities she may have about her groom and his party. Nonetheless, the best man is in charge of the bachelor party and its proceeding.
Planning a bachelor party should be done with the groom. You should begin planning at least six months before the wedding and you should never plan a bachelor party the night before the wedding. As throwing, a bachelor party can be very draining on those who should show up at the wedding with a fresh face and clear eyes so the wedding photographs show a pretty picture, rather than a bunch of tired, red eye men with no real energy for the wedding.
While planning the bachelor party with the groom you will need to make a list. First, determine those whom the groom wishes to attend the party as well as the location for the party. The best man should also list the types of activates the groom enjoys, such as camping, fishing or hunting as well as any type of favorite games, such as laser tag or paintball. Keep in mind that the best man can also have help by delegating the duties to other men who are interested in helping to throw the bachelor party, as this will make things much easier and more likely to go over without to many problems. Although, when delegating responsibility, the best man is also to supervise the duties to make sure everything is ready on time.
Once you have determined the location and the guests to the bachelor party, you will need to consider the theme of the party. Depending on the wishes of the groom, the party can be outrageous or a simple get together. However, you do have the prerogative of throwing in a few surprises for the groom, if you wish. Just keep in mind that when there are alcoholic drinks being served that you will need designated drivers to ensure everyone gets home safely. Do this by arranging with other sober friends or a taxi service, to drive everyone home after the bachelor party.
