Boys Will Be Boys: All You Need To Know About Planning a New York Inspired Bachelor Party
Jan 02, 2019 03:47 PM Back
Long Islanders…Well; New Yorkers in general know how to throw a party. In fact, when it comes to parties, we are the trendsetters….so, why should your wedding and pre-wedding day celebrations be any different.

One of the most anticipated celebrations for both guys and gals is their “last hurrah”, the bachelor and bachelorette parties. And, today we are going to give you the scoop on how to host a rockin’ Long Island style party for the groom-to-be.

First off, remember, trashy celebrations seem to be a thing of the past, so keep it classy.

Start by selecting the ideal hot spot for a sizzling night out on the town. You may even want to pick a destination location (if it fits everyone’s budget). Think about some of the groom’s favorite places and/or activities. Consider a concert or a sporting event.

Think about a date that will work for everyone. Remember, you’ll want all the guys in the wedding party (and perhaps some that are not, like the groom’s brother or maybe even dad [if you’re planning a golf outing or going to a sports camp).]

Make sure you decide on something that will be fun and affordable for everyone, remember this cause célèbre is compliments of the Best Man and the boys (in the wedding party)…so make sure you’re not looking at places or events that will force anyone to overextend their budget. And, even though the groom isn’t the one organizing this event, make sure he has a say in who he would like to attend….and don’t forget to put them on the guest list.

Get the planning process in place ASAP, because the closer you get the more you’ll have on your plate.

Speaking of plates…start thinking about food selection between 3 - 6 weeks before the big day.  You’ll also want to think about booking your event and a room just in case. Remember, it’s best to play it safe (and not drink and drive) and it’s a good idea to find a nice place to stay well ahead of time especially if you’re heading out of town.

While this night is all about “letting loose” it is important to remember that there are rules to follow. Among these:

1.  The Best Man is in charge….but that doesn’t mean he can’t or shouldn’t delegate his “power”.  It’s also essential to keep in constant and open communication with the groom.  This bash should not be a surprise but, rather, something the groom knows about and has given his approval for (on every level).

2.  Not just for the wedding party any more. Say goodbye to “old-school” rules and ask the groom who he wants to include on the guest list.  He may want to include his dad and his future father-in-law as a first step toward familial bonding.

3.  Dare to be different.  While some may want to have a “traditional” sendoff with scantily clad ladies, others may want to take a more conservative and “conventional” approach that include less “lascivious” activities. Among these is a dinner at a local hot spot, rafting, skiing, going to a manly destination such as a weekend away fishing, skydiving, etc. Remember, this is supposed to be a night of relaxation and good-natured fun to celebrate the groom’s journey to finding everlasting love and to commemorate his last night as a single man…so make it a night of everlasting memories you and he can remember fondly forever  and not you will be “embarrassed” of years down the line.
