Movies have conditioned us to think that the best way to throw a bachelor party is to involve a bar, alcohol and scantily clad women. But it doesn’t have to be this way to throw a good party. Let’s take a look at 5 unique bachelor party ideas.
If you’re on a budget or just don’t need to have a flashy night, hosting your own beerlympics might just be the perfect bachelor party. Every guy loves a bit of friendly competition with his best buds. Your own beerlympics can be done locally in your backyard or you can travel between a few close destinations (make sure you have a designated driver). The concept is simple, split your group into two or more teams, grab a few beverages and compete in games like flip cup, quarters etc. If you’re travelling you can compete in paintball, soccer, etc. Check out some rule and game suggestions here.
2. Camping Weekend
Who said your bachelor party only had to last one night? A weekend in the remote wilderness might just be the perfect thing before your buddy settles down. Take the time to unplug (keep your phone off to truly unplug), the wilderness is the perfect place to sit back, relax and reflect on the simpler times with your best friends. You won’t have to worry about any noise complaints, taxiing around or being too far from a bathroom.
3. White Water Rafting
Take your camping trip one step further and go white water rafting. Many camping resorts across the country offer elevated, cabin-based camping or ‘glamping’ as well as planned outdoor excursions such as white-water rafting. Imagine it like a roller coaster, but you’re not strapped in, you have to power it and you can fall off at any time. Fun right?
4. Axe Throwing
Maybe a weekend of camping and rafting is just a little too much wilderness for you. Axe throwing venues such as FlannelJax’s dial it back just a bit and bring aspects of the wilderness to you. Combining the outdoor elements of wood and axe throwing, with some friendly competition, sets you up perfectly for a night with the boys. Try out some different games and challenges and you’ll be sticking bullseyes in no time. Find your nearest location here.
5. Butchery Class
Butchery Classes are an awesome way to learn or fine tune some relevant skills. Not only will you learn some knife skills, but you’ll also learn how to maximize your cuts and season properly. Best of all you’ll end up with pounds of meat to take home. What better way to celebrate your last days as a bachelor than handling some meat with your closest bros.
So there you have it, 5 unique bachelor party ideas to help keep your parties memorable and different from everyone else’s. Of course, we’re partial to #4… And if you are too, book your axe-treme bachelor party.
