The traditional bachelor party consists of strippers and bars, but that scene isn’t for everybody. If you’re planning a bachelor party for a guy who doesn’t want to wake up hung over and covered in glitter, check out these unique bachelor party ideas.
If the groom is a huge sports fan, spend the day tailgating and cheering on his team, or take a class to learn how to play like a pro. For instance, if the groom is a NASCAR fan, you could learn to drive a race car. Another inexpensive option is to organize a game at a local field. Call all of the groom’s friends and meet up for a game of football, soccer, etc. The winning team can treat the rest of the group to dinner or a round of drinks.
There are plenty of fun outdoor activities such as hiking or canoeing. Even if the groom spends most of his time inside, he might appreciate this exciting change of pace. If you want to spend time outdoors but no one is up for strenuous activity, consider hosting a BBQ or bonfire.
Go to the Extreme
If the groom is an adrenaline junky, spend the bachelor party enjoying some extreme sports. A few options include BASE jumping, bodyboarding or paragliding.
Who says a bachelor party has to only be one day? Make the bachelor party a fun getaway by taking a road trip. Everyone can pick places to stop along the way. If you only have a day, take a local road trip to places to unique places in your area.
Think back to the activities the groom loved before he was a “grown up,” and spend the day indulging your inner teenager. A few options include a video game marathon, a paintball war or a laser tag tournament.
When planning a bachelor party, always consider the groom’s interests and request, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Happy planning!
