    FYI, the bachelor party isn't really for the bachelor. He's already chosen to piss his life away. The party is for all of his friends to have a reason to get together to do things they are prohibited from doing in their own sorry married/significant other-ridden lives.

    Shouldnt be hard to string up a sheet or something between two tress to project it on - I imagine you'd need a generator for the projector though...
    could you run it off a car somehow?

    I could throw an awesome awesome bachelor party in a campground.

    1. if you can't move the dude to the strippers, move the strippers to the dude. A stripper camp ground party would rock.
    2. magic mushrooms. mushrooms + wilderness = win
    3. rafting (rescue-the-ho rafting would be awesome)
    4. archery. Get Robin Hood on some imaginary animals while you are shroomed out of your skull (count the ways that can end badly...)
    5. weed. copious amounts of weed.
    6. more mushrooms.
    7. bring the strippers back out
    8. beer bong suspended from the tallest damn tree you can find


    forgot the fireworks.

    Camping doesn't really seem like a bad idea, especially if you have something to do during the day. White-water rafting, skeet shooting, rock climbing, or something else manly could be decent to do during the day, and then get obliterated at night. Personally, this is what I'd like to do for my bachelor party, and I'm getting married in October. I could really give a shit less about strippers. My friends and I saw our fair share of strip clubs while in high school/college. I see the bachelor party as an opportunity to get all the guys together again and do something adventure-like, get wasted, grill meat, and just hang out. Doesn't really sound like that terrible of an idea.

    That being said... no cigars? wtf? That just seems like a weird stipulation. Lots of women don't want their guys to get strippers, but to choose that as rule is really odd.

    I organised a guy's bachelor party last year - actually just stayed at their house in London this past weekend - and the day before it, I got a call from his now-wife. "Matt, come have lunch with me"

    Meet her for sushi by my office.

    "What's up?"
    "Matt, youre the only one I trust...so please, take these..." *puts about five pills of E in my hand* "....just keep him rolling the whole weekend"
    "Uhh OK....but why?"
    "Cos if he's on E, no matter how many girls the boys throw at him, he'll never be able to get it up"

    I can just picture some guy in 20 years sedated on the couch while his wife is off at some guys apartment.

    Sounds like they will have a long and wonderful relationship.

    Time to be the contrarian voice here, but IMO, you shouldn't force your friend to do anything he has explicitly said he doesn't want to do. He may be a huge fucking pussy, if not a decent guy who's seriously whipped, and it sounds like he is either or both of those things. But you need to respect his wishes. It's not your place to drive an unnecessary wedge into his new marriage by causing problems for him at the bachelor party. I can't think of a more selfish act than organizing the party for your own benefit and not for his. Man up, go camping, and try to make the most of it. Sucks, but there's really nothing you can or should do about that. Forcing strippers and blow on a guy who doesn't want them is uncool. Think of what he wants, not what you want, and not what you think he "needs." Or, for more selfish reasons: think of the consequences if you do force that shit on him and it blows up in his face. You will be singled out when he tells his wife what happened, and if she's as controlling as it sounds like she is, you'll never be allowed to hang out with him. You do not want to make an enemy of the wife. If and when it comes time for him to start putting his foot down and standing up for himself, he needs to initiate that. Not you. You're just as bad as his wife is if you force him into things. It definitely sounds like the poor guy needs to grow a pair and start asserting himself. But let him be the author of that story. Let him pick the time, place, and occasion for doing that.

    I think Ed Helms makes a good point about Bachelor Parties:

    Last year my buddy was getting married and a mutual friend was the best man. I kept pushing hard for a strip club, knowing my friend would probably want to go to one. But the best man was clear on the matter, there would be no strip club. His wife (and the grooms fiancÃ[​IMG]) would find out about it. And I was pretty down on most of the events that were planned. Paintball shooting (which I and a few other friends) opted out on. Dinner at a greasy spoon restaurant. Going to a comedy club (the headlining comedian being a woman. Not to be sexist but I rarely find female comedians to be funny) and finally drinks at a bar, and drinks at the hotel they got for the night. While it was sort of fun hanging out with friends, the party kind of came to a halt once we got to a crowded bar. Most of the guys drank and watched the UFC fight, a sport I have absolutely no interest in. Since I hadn't pitched in on the hotel, I eventually decided to call it a night, much to my friends protest.

    Months later I'm hanging out with friends and the topic of strippers came up. It was here that my friend revealed that about a half hour after I left the guys all went to a strip club. Without me. The groom got a lap dance from two strippers. Exasperated, I asked why they decided to change their minds, and my friend says "We all had to swear to never talk about it". BAH! Had I known a strip club was a possibility I would have stayed longer.

    That marriage is starting on the wrong track. I'm not sure your idea of the party is the right thing for him ... but if the relationship is as you say ... poor fellow.

    Your friend sounds like he needs an intervention, not a bachelor party. First, he seems to be forgetting that the bachelor party is as much about the attendees as the guest of honor. What if they hate camping? A good bachelor party doesn't needs strippers, but it at minimum should have include steaks and booze. Second, I agree with everyone who said that it's the principle of standing on his own two feet that is at stake here. I give this marriage five years tops.

    Bang on... While strippers can add to a bachelor party, I would say that it's a myth that they're a requirement. But steaks (at the very least meat of some kind) and booze are a MUST. The whole point of a bachelor party is to do stuff that you won't easily be able to do after you're married and to have a good time with the fellas. Whether that be travel (i.e. Vegas), drink to excess, smoke cigars, the aforementioned strippers... whatever.

    My honest opinion is that you should jokingly bust his balls to the very edge of being a jerk about it and see if he changes his tune on the bachelor party. Really give it to him about is fiance having him whipped, tell him that he needs to take advantage of the time he's still independent, etc.

    The cigar thing is a very, very bad sign. I cannot stand when people say I can't do something, or set hard and fast rules for how I should live my life. The best relationships I've had (especially my current one) were structured around the idea that we each knew how to handle our sh*t and we could do our own thing, while at least listening to the other person's opinion. But, if my gf told me I "wasn't allowed" to do something like smoke a cigar, I wouldn't be happy, and I probably would give her crapy in a "I'm joking right now, but there's an undercurrent of seriousness here" kind of way.

    I've seen relationships like this go two ways: 1) total trainwreck; or 2) the guy is totally whipped but somehow happy and they die together at 94. There is no other option, at least in my experience.

    Good lord, I really am a lucky bastard!

    Agreed that the no cigar rule does not bode well. Just get the boy a Montecristo #4 and show him the proper way to smoke it. It's an essential male social skill that may stand him in good stead some day if he finds himself in influential company. If there's one rule of hers he should break, it's this one.

    Sounds like he and his fiance are rather uptight & conservative. All well and good. Some people are comfortable & happy that way. Who knows that their marriage might not be sheer bliss for a lifetime?

    That said, the boy could really do with just one night of unbridled debauchery in his life. Hire Matt to organize and manage it. The man knows how to party. It'll be epic!

    last bachelor party I went to (in vegas) the groom wanted to get some coke or E or something.

    Another guy who is super anti-drug almost got into a fight with him just for bringing it up (to be fair this guy does work for US Customs, but once its here...). He threatened to end their friendship and not attend the wedding if he got anything. I thought it was kind of selfish and none of us did any drugs. Or maybe they did and I just wasnt invited. [​IMG]

    Forget who the comedian was who said it "The anit-pot people are just pissed off because they were never cool enough in high school to be asked to smoke weed"

    friend of mine once was in the same situation as the op's groom friend... I was asked to go to his "bachelor party" that I found out later on was just a fucking dinner at his house, with his family and his then-fiance and her fucking friends and there wasn't even alcohol in the premises. complete waste of time and energy that led me to NOT attend his wedding out of spite.

    the groom's dad even approached us after said event at the house and asked if we're going "somewhere else" without his son, and he's coming along.
