The Bachelor Party FAQ
Is a bachelor party a “must have” for the groom-to be?
There are no absolutes in wedding planning anymore but a bachelor party is a nice tradition that most men like. It’s a chance to “be with the guys” and for the groom to be the center of attention, at least for one day or night – or more!
How far in advance should you plan a bachelor party?
If the bachelor party is a local one night affair, 4-6 weeks is probably enough notice for most people. But if you want to have a destination bachelor party, start the planning process 3-6 months in advance. You want to give guests plenty of time to clear their calendars and get the best deals on airplane tickets and get ready for their VIP Vacation.
When should you have a bachelor party?
Unlike bridal showers, a bachelor party is usually held relatively close to the wedding; one to three weeks before works well. However, if you’re planning on inviting out-of-towners, you may want to plan the bachelor party around a holiday weekend.
Who should be invited to the bachelor party?
Consult with the groom about who he wants on the bachelor party guest list. While size may not matter, 8-16 guys is probably an appropriate number for our VIP bachelor party. Don’t forget to include family and male members of the wedding party.
