There are 2.3 million weddings every year in the United States. That means millions of vows are exchanged, bouquets tossed, rings given, and bachelor parties celebrated.
If you are one of those men getting ready to celebrate a bachelor party in 2019, it’s time to toss out the traditional idea of what this entails. You deserve a unique outing with your best friends, and simply going out to a club just won’t cut it.
Unsure of what constitutes a special and unique bachelor party? We’ve got you covered! Read on for five awesome bachelor party ideas that are perfect for saying farewell to the life of a bachelor.
1. Take a Trip (Not to Vegas)
Vegas has become a traditional bachelor party destination, especially after the legendary film The Hangover, but that’s not your only option for a destination party.
If it’s in your budget, consider taking your bachelor party on a flight within the country or even abroad.
Think about places you’ve always wanted to go, and whether it would work for your friends. For example, you could travel to Canada and rent a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Spend the weekend drinking, hiking, and just relaxing.
Or if you want a more up-tempo travel destination, you could go somewhere like New Orleans. New Orleans is affordable and there’s a ton of culture and activities for your bachelor party.
If you want to travel on a budget, consider a road trip to a nearby city or state. You won’t have to pay for the cost of a flight and you could all split gas money.
2. Keep It Low-Key
A bachelor party doesn’t need to be an epic night out on the town. If you aren’t the kind of person to make a big deal out of an event like this, you can keep it lowkey and stay inside.
For example, you could have your best man host a poker night or a wine and cheese tasting. If spending time with your best friends in a comfortable setting is your goal, then just find things you all enjoy doing together and spend the night doing them!
This is also a perfect option for people who are celebrating a bachelor party on a budget. You can buy drinks and food in advance so you don’t end up spending an unexpected fortune like you might do if you went out to a club or bar.
3. Sober Bachelor Party Ideas
Many bachelor parties make alcohol a focal point. But if you or people in your bachelor party are on a sober path, you might find some of these activities more up your ally.
For example, you could try out one of the Escape Rooms in your area, or go camping for the weekend. You could spend the day on the golf course or go hunting. The possibilities are endless!
