As we all already know, gays know how to party. But planning a gay bachelor party can feel both fun and somewhat intimidating. Of course, you want to throw the best bachelor party your friend could ever imagine, but at the same time you wonder if there are any dos and don’ts to keep in mind. Throwing a gay bachelor party is not a lot different from a straight one, but there are a few things to keep in mind that sets them apart. We are breaking down the planning guide for you, and a few heads-up to keep in mind.
Planning someone else’s party, whether the party is a bachelor, birthday, straight or gay - research is key. Not only do you need information about when your friend wants the bachelor party to take place, but you should also find out if this is a one-man show or if he wants to celebrate this occasion with his significant other. Some gays want to throw one big party together, and some prefer to spend them together with their friends. It’s all individual so remember to check that one off the list!
Another thing to keep in mind is that gays have a mixed crowed of friends. This bachelor party is not beery college friends and strip club. Or maybe it is! It can be a good thing to ask your friend about who’s on the invitation list and if you don’t know them, try to find out a little bit about them. It is of course your friend’s big night before the big day, and you would probably not get the task to set this up if he didn’t think you would do a great job. Even though, it would be nice to make everyone enjoy the night as much as the groom!
When you have that in place it’s time to look at your options. First of all, where should this big bash take place? Is the bachelor party going to be one local night or a few days destination party? You know your local area the best and you could through friends find out more about the top-gay-places to be. But for a destination bachelor party can need some research. Are there any good gay bars or clubs for the place you have in mind? If it is summertime, will the gay pride parade be in the area? Does the groom want one last big adventure with his friends packed with extreme sport activities? Maybe he wants to enjoy a tropical beach and getting a great tan for the wedding?
Remember that this is for your friend, and you know him better. Maybe he wants to just get together and have a good time with his closest friends or maybe he wants the whole world to know that he’s getting married. Double-check with the groom what kind of extravagance-level he has in mind.
Piecing it together
When the pieces are starting to come into place, it’s time to get the décor! Fashion advice isn’t something all gays trust coming from a straight person, but even if he’s gay he can’t escape the humiliation every bachelor needs to feel on his big night!
Here you can find the perfect touches to the party.
