How to Organize an Awesome Gay Stag Party?
Do you remember the movie Hangover? As hilarious and over the top it is, it’s a perfect example that stag parties tend to get wild. After all, it’s your best friend’s last night of freedom, and you need to celebrate it in style. And if you’re the best man, you also have to organize the whole event.
But before you plan all the crazy stuff you’re going to do, book strippers, or shop for luxury sex dolls, there are many other things to consider first. Planning a gay stag party can be even more tricky, and there are certain rules you need to follow when doing that.
In the article below, you’ll find some useful information on how to, step by step, organize an excellent stag party, and give your friend a proper send-off into his married life.
Creating a Guest List
On paper, creating a guest list should be a piece of cake. After all, what’s difficult to invite a bunch of guys to a party? Unfortunately, when it comes to a stag party, this task will be much more challenging than expected.
Keep in mind that it’s a party like no other. It’s the last time you see your friend unmarried, which means that you have to do everything you can to make the night special, including inviting the right guests.
And while the task may not be challenging if a groom has a small group of close friends, the trouble begins when the situation is quite the opposite. If that’s the case, you need to make sure that everyone gets along and there will be no ‘gay dramas’, which means you have to be cruel in some cases.
If you think that there’s one guy who will destroy the whole night, don’t hesitate to exclude him. Pick up a group of men who will be able to have a good time together, even though some don’t know each other.
You can always consult the list with another friend, or even the other groom. The best idea, though, is to follow your gut. After all, who knows a groom better than his best friend?
Pick the Right Location
When it comes to picking the location of the bachelor party, let your imagination fly high. A little trip to another city? Sure. Maybe catching a plane abroad? Even better. It’s entirely up to you, but there are some rules you need to follow.
First of all, if you plan to go to another city or country, the best idea is to lose the element of surprise. Well, maybe not about the destination, but you should tell your guests and a groom for how long you’re going somewhere (some may have to work).
Secondly, if you’re planning a trip, make sure you book everything in advance to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
And the last thing to keep in mind, don’t make the trip too long. Try to keep everything simple, and make sure that you won’t have to travel too much when you arrive. Try to book a place where you’ll have easy access to all the party places.
It’s also a good idea to check what kinds of gay bars or clubs are in the city you intend to visit so that you know exactly where to go to get hammered.
Now let’s get to the most exciting part of every stag party – the activities. It’s the moment you can show how much you love your best friend! Keep in mind, though, that you also need to make sure that the rest of the guests will feel entertained as well.
And while a groom is the most important, others will participate more willingly once they see that they can have some fun. You can always consult with others about your ideas to see what kind of activities will suit them best.
And while we’re at it, let’s talk about ideas. Of course, you can go with some cliches, like male strippers, but how about making the night really special? Think about some unusual activities you can do. Here are some examples:
- Renting a yacht
- Drag brunch
- Alcohol testing
- Visiting beer spa
- Escape rooms
These are just a few of them, and the list goes on and on. When it comes to activities for a gay stag party, the possibilities are endless. All you need to do is make sure a groom and guests will enjoy them.
Although participating in a stag party is an unforgettable (or sometimes forgettable) experience, organizing one is not a walk in the park. If you’re the best man and want to give your friend a proper last night of freedom, the list of things you need to consider is incredibly long.
From people you want to invite, through the best location, to wild activities, all of these things lie on your shoulders, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. But hey, your friend made you his best man for a reason. If you aren’t able to do it, no one will.
