    What do you like to do? Even if it's not a stag party, this thing should focus on you treating yourself to something you wouldn't, usually, and ostensibly won't often after you're married. Secondarily, it should be fun for the guests. Maybe you want to have a cigar and martini night at a snazzy cocktail lounge, and a limo back and forth. 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. [​IMG]

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