If you are about to send your closest friend off to a life of married bliss and have been tasked with planning a bachelor party to end all bachelor parties you are going to need some good ideas! Strippers and a weekend away in Vegas are tired and dated ways to celebrate the end of his single life, so instead think of creative options that will let you all have a great time bonding together and celebrating your friendship while also sending him off in style.
Take to the skies
If your friend likes adrenaline-pumping activities, then take to the skies and plan a group skydive. Think of the excellent photos you can display during the best man speech at the wedding! If actually jumping out of a plane is a step too far, or the cost is too prohibitive (it can run into hundreds of dollars per person) then consider an indoor skydive center. Many indoor skydiving centers book parties and can offer customizable options so you can plan your day just how you, and the groom, would like it.
Go whiskey or wine tasting
For a groom who enjoys a drink or two then why not plan a night whiskey tasting? Look at your local options for distilleries that hold whiskey tasting events, or plan your own at home. If wine is more to the groom’s tastes, then go to a winery for a day learning about and tasting their top vintages.
Plan a weekend camping
Sometimes the simple things can be the best and a weekend away under the stars can be a wonderful chance to create lasting memories and have fun together. A camping bachelor party is ideal for nature lovers and adventurous souls alike. Choose your site carefully, as you might want to be in a fairly isolated spot so any raucous fun won’t disturb a tent with a young family nearby. Pick a national park for truly stunning views, and the chance to go wild swimming or hiking in the days and cook over a campfire at night.
Experience a thrilling escape room
Escape rooms offer the thrill of a high-adrenaline situation, such as being held hostage on a plane or being blindfolded and kidnapped, and the opportunity to work together as a team to work out the clues and escape before the timer ends. Escape Room Charlotte can host games for up to 7-8 players, depending on the theme, and you can be sure that the groom will never forget his bachelor party.
A great bonding idea if the groom is a sports fan can be to get active together and play a game of miniature golf or bowling. Both have had a surge in popularity in recent years, and many trendy establishments have made them cool destinations for a night out. Or organize your own sports tournaments, such as a soccer game or baseball game. Get t-shirts printed, which also acts as a nice memento of the weekend. Or, if watching sports rather than playing appeals to the groom more, you could get tickets to a top game and have everyone go together, following it with drinks and a bar-crawl.
