Your mate’s bucks party is fast approaching and, perhaps, the preparation is starting to get overwhelming. Don’t let it get to your head and end up missing what you’re supposed to get done. A plan can easily fall when some big mishaps enter the picture. You would want to avoid these, wouldn’t you?
There are plenty of potholes that you can encounter during the planning stage. From cancellations to last-minute changes, anything and everything can go sour all at once. Create a foolproof plan with some handy tips and tricks from these fails that you want to dodge.
Booking at the Last Minute
Reservations should be done ahead and not a day or two before, especially when thinking about big places. Don’t forget that you’re not the only group who’s thinking of having a party in the same venue. If you know someone, you can try and pull some strings to make things happen. However, it doesn’t always go your way. So, make sure that you have everything booked and set at least a week before the event and don’t forget to confirm these reservations a day before.
Forgetting to Invite Someone
Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes you can make is not inviting someone important to the celebrant. The bucks party for your mate shouldn’t just centre on your circle of friends. Reach out to his siblings and even his cousins. Make sure you review the guest list so you don’t forget anyone. It will be an unforgivable mistake to miss a person on such a special night. After all, loved ones and colleagues would want to see him transcend from one chapter of his life to another.
Going Overboard with the Plans
It’s understandable why you want an elaborate plan for the groom’s bachelor party but you also have to think if your ideas are sensible. You don’t want something so drastic that would result in something undesirable. There are already many stories of stag parties gone wrong for you to learn from. You don’t need to experience it firsthand to get the gist of it. If unsure, consult someone else regarding your plans and see if they agree with you.
A man’s bucks party is an important part of his transition to becoming a married man. It is your responsibility to make it as memorable as it can be. Remember the top three fails listed above and avoid repeating the same mistakes. Take note of the tips and have a smoother time planning this big event. Happy organising!
