Bachelor Party Ideas That Won’t Put the Marriage in Jeopardy

I didn’t worry too much about my hubby’s bachelor party. Okay, maybe I did. He was a firefighter after all and those guys can get crazy sometimes. But these are some great ideas!


This is a partnered guest post.

Do you have the responsibility as the best man to plan the groom’s bachelor party? While the classic bachelor party ideas may be fun, why not look for creative and clean ways for the groom to spend his final night of freedom?

The old cliché of a bachelor party is that it is a drunken mess that usually devolves into hanging out at a strip club. However, there are many more classy and cool ways to spend your bachelor party that will be a lot more fun — and that the soon-to-be-bride will approve of.

Going Hunting

Are you and your group of friends city-slickers who have always wanted to experience the thrill of a hunting trip out in the wild? There are several tour companies throughout Canada that offer guided hunting trips for bachelor parties.

The experienced guides will instruct you on gun safety and then lead you through the wilderness hunting anything from deer to pheasant to wild rams, depending on the region. There is a lot of variety when it comes to luxury on these expeditions as some will have you staying in tents in the wild while others will offer accommodation in a lodge or a cabin.

Trip to Las Vegas

When it comes to glitz, glamour and good times, Las Vegas is the perfect place to party. Although Las Vegas is a pretty typical bachelor party destination, it never seems to go out of style. There is a lot more to do than just gamble; there are tons of shows to see including comedy acts, cover bands, entertainers new and old and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Of course, there is always plenty of time for chilling by the pool with a drink or dancing until dawn. There are usually tons of cheap flights to Vegas available and you can all share a large suite at a semi-decent hotel.

Camping Trip

All you and your buddies need is a big tent, lots of meat to roast on the fire and plenty of beer and you can have a great bachelor party camping trip. Head to your favourite nearby national park or campsite and set up camp. While you are there, you can go fishing, hiking or even canoeing. You can have a lot of fun just relaxing out in the woods with your best friends.

Sports Outing

Perhaps there is a big game coming up for your favorite baseball, football or hockey team. A great idea for a bachelor party is to buy tickets for the game and cheer on your team together. If you really want to splash out, rent a private box so that you can watch the game in style. You could have the pre- and post-game celebrations at your favorite local pub or at someone’s house, with a plenty of snacks and beer of course.

Karaoke Night

There is nothing quite like a group of jovially intoxicated grown men singing along to Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” A karaoke night can be a great way to build camaraderie and have a few laughs at each other’s expense as you belt out the classics. Your local bar likely features a karaoke night, so plan to hit it up together. If you want to really make it fun and challenging, make a rule that no one is allowed to choose their own karaoke song and once you get up on stage you must sing whatever gets thrown at you.

Road Trip

Rent a van, stock up on snacks and awesome tunes and hit the road! Heading out on the open road to go exploring makes for a great bachelor party and it is totally up to you in which direction you go. Plan out a route and include some great stops along the way, perhaps to some destinations and attractions that the groom has always wanted to see. Or, you can go the spontaneous route and flip a coin to see where the journey takes you.

These are just a few of the fun activities that you could plan for a bachelor party, so why not get started putting together your party?
