Non-traditional Bachelor Party - Page 2

post #16 of 28
What about attending a sporting event of a team you like/follow, followed by a dinner at a nice restaurant, and capped off with some bar hopping? Basically, a bachelor party without the strippers, which is what it sounds like you want.

I'd avoid having the fiancee there (or any other women, other than your "best woman"). There'll be plenty of wedding related activities involving both you and your fiancee.

Of course, the fact that you have a "best woman" shows you're a bit of a non-traditionalist already. Do what you want and what you'll remember as being a good time. Despite some of the above responses, the drunk, stripper/hooker laden bachelor party isn't for everyone.

Golf trip (helps to be a golfer). Add golf at a Nice place, cigars, scotch, party of 8-12 or so, poker, dinner.

Has anyone had a nice non-traditional (i.e. no strippers or golf or other "guy" stuff) bachelor party recently? Any ideas?

I'm also a little torn on the guest list. I guess I can ask her to invite anyone I wish, but something about it seems weird. Has anyone had their fiancee at their "bachelor party"? How about friends' wives and partners with whom you are equally close?

Depends on time of year, but I've done indoor rock climbing (harnesses so everyone is safe) and a water park.

Have also had a great time at places that specialize in old arcade games.

have fun!

How about going canoeing, boating or fishing for the day and then grilling out at night with a couple of cold cases of suds on hand.

Maybe dinner, a play or an opera or something, then late night drinks and food. I think, at the least, it should be somewhat decadent/excessive.

Shore sounds really on point: something out of the ordinary, interesting to you, but over the top in some way. Cars, shooting, and food are major pastimes of mine, so I'd like to have the crew go out in rented exotics, bomb around the countryside for awhile, shoot a round of sporting clays, have a dinner in which I am given a really nice bottle of scotch, and go home. Pefect.

What do you like that you can somehow push to the edge in some sort of exhilarating manner? Do that.

Regards,
Huntsman

Kidding aside, call me traditional, conservative... whatever, but all these alternative ideas sound very lame to me. Hookers, booze and drugs is the way to go here (gambling is optional but a good add-on).

I'm a happily married guy but if I'm going to take the night off from the family routine for a bachelor party, there better be some T&A.

attended something like this years ago. a friend of mine was supposed to have a "bachelor party" and to my understanding we were supposed to meet at his house (which is just a few blocks from a row of very very classy strip clubs here)... much to my surprise his fiance and her bevy of friends were also there, and we ended up having dinner at their house.

that was a definite waste of me and my friends' time. heck, even the groom's father came up to me and asked if we were going to a club after that "bachelor party" coz i think he wants to come along!

Remember Bob, a whole lifetime of pleasant dinner parties awaits. And on each and every one of these nights, you wont have the excuse you have now.

From my perspective, nothing could be better than spending the rest of my life with my wife. Having a bachelor party was never a consideration. A bachelor party is just one more of those things that other people do that I don't do.

Well, thanks for all of the thoughtful responses guys. I think a few of you hit it on the head. My plan is to invite whoever the hell I want (but not my fiancee, I was just curious if anyone ever had) and we will do "something out of the ordinary, interesting to [me], but over the top in some way" as Huntsman has paraphrased Shoreman.

And thanks for the offer Zach, but the position of best friend is filled even though she's a woman it's my bachelor party.

I felt/feel the same way. It had to happen eventually.
