A bucks party can be a huge blast. It is a man’s final hurrah with his friends before he moves on to the next stage of his life by marrying his love! But for everyone who has seen The Hangover, it’s also clear that the heavy drinking, strippers and hedonism version of a bucks party can have disastrous results.
How can one have a wonderful bucks party without jeopardizing the wedding? It’s a lot easier than it sounds!
For starters, set the mood for fun with off-the wall costumes. Make sure to choose some sort of theme, so that all guests are more likely to participate. Does the groom-to-be enjoy some Hollywood flair? Make it movie themed and have all the guests dress up as their favorite leading man!
Or maybe the groom-to-be would rather focus on enjoying the last of his childhood before he moves on to his next major stage of life. Then a superhero costume party is definitely the way to go! With Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Captain America, and more in attendance, a good time is as good as guaranteed!
Don capes, split up into teams for laser tag or another laddish activity, and be your own heros for an afternoon! Making an all-day costume party out of your bucks party is a far better option than an evening of drunken shenanigans. Not only will you have a blast with your friends – one that you’ll be sober enough to remember for years to come – but you’ll also get to embarrass the groom-to-be without any serious lasting consequences.
If the groom-to-be is a really good sport and you’re all up for a good laugh, enjoy some harmless fun at the groom’s expense with a ballerina get-up.
The bride will be the prettiest one at the wedding, so it is only fair for the groom to be the prettiest at the bucks party! Don’t cut any corners with the costume. A full-on pink frilly tutu and tulle ballerina ensemble will be best! Make sure to parade your beautiful groom-to-be all around town and if you can get him to crown it off with a tiara, you get bonus bro points! Definitely don’t forget to stop by his favorite bar, wherever he loves shooting pool, and maybe even a shooting range for a nice juxtaposition between his usual favorites and his pretty bucks party costume. For something energetic think Paintball or maybe Lawn Bowls. Just dress up in an animal onesie to add more fun.
By embracing the light-hearted fun of the day with costumes and safe shenanigans, you can create a photo album of memories than can be enjoyed by all, including the bride-to-be and any future children, for years to come. All without stepping on any toes
Leave the drama and the stress for the big screen. Have a fun time instead!
