They’re also called bachelors party, bux party, stag party, stag do, and many other names. these are celebrations of the last singlehood party for your best mate! Known around the world, Bucks Parties are among the greatest types of parties held everywhere before you lose a mate to the hands of his very bride. He won’t be partying with you anymore, and if he does, is not going to be like in past days. What’s the best way of celebrating this? Get together with your cobber and best mates, get as many coldies as you can, and get pissed legless like there’s no tomorrow! Still, nothing good ever happens when you put together mates and coldies so you might end up getting a “The Hangover” type of night.
When should you have a bucks party? If you are doing a surprise bucks party make sure it is several months before the wedding. That just gives him plenty of time to recover plus it does not interfere with other plans. If he is in on it, let him decide he is the most important guest. Normal having a bucks party 2 or 3 weeks out from the wedding is a good option.
Planning a bucks party is the perfect job for the best mate or best man of the groom. He’s going to be married/cactus after that, so if you’re planning the party, you must make him enjoy it to the last bit. This is easy for a dinkum mate, the one who knows his friend as much as he knows his own hands!
These are the bucks party must have:
And the most essential thing is that this night needs to be memorable for the rest of your mate’s life!
Another vital part of any bucks party is daring and challenges, especially if you’re celebrating at a pub or bar. They are an easy way of ensuring tons of laughter during the celebration, making your mates go nuts with crazy challenges. Make fun of the broom, make him complete challenges like every time he says a certain word he needs to take a shot of vodka or make him wear stupid costumes or a crazy dance-off. Make sure to avoid stuff that’s too crazy, especially stuff that can get your mate jailed before the wedding!
Getting things started can be a little rough if you don’t have a drinking game. It can be as simple as drinking every time your team scores a point while watching a game, never have I ever, drunk Jenga, or straight face. Pro-tip? Be sure to grab a meal before getting started if you don’t want to get hammered quickly!
Bucks parties need to be organized well because yeah, they can get boring too. We’ve mentioned some of the most common activities, still, the only limit of what you can do at these parties is set by the attendants! Sports events, nightclubbing, going to your mate’s favourite bar, going on trips, going bush – to the countryside, getting female entertainers, racing go-karts, parachuting, go gambling, go hunting or fishing, and even playing video-games can be perfect activities. Focus on your mate’s likes and plan the best to suit him, or you can actually ignore his tendencies and get him to do stuff he’s never done before. This depends on how much you know your guy!
These are the stages of a great bucks party:
The headache can be huge, but still, if you made your mate enjoy his last night as a single man, then it was all worth it. You’ll cherish these somewhat awkward-but-beautiful memories for the rest of your life! Cheers!
