Did you know that around 35% of people visiting Las Vegas are there for a bachelor party?
Vegas is no doubt one of the biggest stereotypes for a bachelor event. But, there are plenty of other must-haves that take priority over this popular destination.
If you’re planning a bachelor party and aren’t sure what you need to make it a night to remember, we can help. Here are some of the essentials to ensure the bachelor goes off with a bang – and be warned, this list isn’t PG!
Let’s get into it.
Plenty of Booze
The first bachelor party essential is, of course, alcohol. This is the groom’s last night of freedom, so get ready to drink up! Of course, what you drink and how much will vary a lot depending on the type of night you have planned.
If you’re hitting the strip clubs and planning on a wild, raunchy night, stock up on spirits. Vodka, rum, tequila, and anything else that’s going to get the job done gets our approval.
For bachelor parties that are a bit more chill, some crates of beers or a nice sipping whisky are probably more appropriate. Remember, this is all about what the groom wants, so consider his alcohol tastes when writing up your shopping list.
A Set of Cigars
Cigars are a great way to kick your bachelor party off. Buy a nice set with one for every guest as a decadent start to whatever night you have in mind. Cigars stink and are bad for your health, so they’re often one of life’s pleasures that has to go once you’re married, making this a symbolic moment!
Plenty of Condoms
Not every bachelor party is going to end with sex (especially not for the groom), but a lot of them will. If you have a lot of single men heading out with you for a night of alcohol, lap dances, and gambling, be prepared for all of them with at least one box of condoms. Trust us, when that rogue friend asks if anyone has protection, you’ll be happy you brought them along.
Dirty T-Shirts, Adult Sex Toys, and Strippers
Bachelor parties are notoriously filthy. If you’re going all-in for yours and want every cliche in the book, you’re in the right place.
We recommend starting with group t-shirts with some risqué slogans (as long as you’re in a place that will allow them). Make sure the groom’s shirt is particularly bad for extra bachelor points.
Next, stock up on some adult sex toys. You can give these out as funny – and useful – gifts to the men at the party, with some special treats for the man of honor. From pocket pussies to bondage gear, this is definitely one way to get some laughs from everyone and loosen up the party.
Other sex-themed items like blow-up sex dolls and boob lollies are great fun, too.
Will you have strippers at the bachelor party? This isn’t always common these days, and it’s best to check in with the bride-to-be if you’re unsure. You’ll want to check now, so you don’t end up in the bad books on the wedding day!
If you’re not having a dirty night, there are still plenty of personalized supplies you can add to the event. Personalized beer coolers and beer mats always go down well, as do shot glasses. For a classy gift to your groom, you could even purchase personalized alcohol flasks to celebrate the night.
Bachelor Party Games
There are tons of games you can play at a bachelor party. Even if you’re having an easy-going night with a few beers, you can get a bit more raunchy here. Even simply buying a deck of cards with 18+ pictures on the back is an easy way to liven up a tame party!
Some typical bachelor party games include:
- Shot roulette
- Beer pong
- Never Have I Ever
- Cards Against Humanity
Consider the tone of your evening before picking games to match.
Some Practical Bachelor Party Supplies
You can have a lot of fun planning the bachelor party, but don’t forget some practical supplies, too! Extra cash is always a good idea in case you find yourself in a sticky situation, as is a first aid kit for any emergencies.
Consider your destination, too. For example, if you’re going somewhere hot and sunny, you might need to bring sunscreen and mosquito repellant.
Disposable cameras are also a great idea. These let you all document the night without having to keep taking mobiles out of your pockets and bags, reducing the chance of any getting lost.
Alka Seltzer and Gatorade
Every bachelor party guide should cover the inevitable morning-after hangover. Be prepared for a lot of patchy memories, bad heads, and uneasy stomachs! We recommend finding some hot food for your men quickly and stocking up your accommodation with Alka Seltzers and Gatorade to fend off the sickness.
If you’re going somewhere hot and sunny, it could be worth investing in a few pairs of sunglasses to hand out too. These can be as hilariously awful as you like – when your friends are hungover, they’re going to need them, so they’ll wear what you have!
Start Planning the Perfect Bachelor Party
Planning a bachelor party isn’t always easy, but it’s always fun! Just remember that this is a night for the groom-to-be, so it should reflect his interests and what he finds fun. If you don’t think he’ll be into strip clubs and sex toys, it’s a good idea to steer clear and find something he will like instead.
But, if your groom is up for a stereotypical bachelor party and everything that goes along with it, we can help! With plenty of sex toys and sex-themed items, you’ll find plenty to make your evening a proper send-off for the single man at New Fine Arts.
