The Bachelor Party Buck Tradition

We don’t all share the same interests, so why must every bachelor have the cliché bucks night? If you’re not keen for your man to engage in (ahem) rowdy behaviour, Bojana Lazarevska has found some alternative options that still make for a great bachelor party.


The Bachelor Party Buck TraditionWe all know that a bachelor party is a good excuse to let loose and enjoy a wild night with your friends, but if your husband-to-be is not interested in throwing a traditional bucks night, it doesn’t mean that you should scrap the idea altogether. There are plenty of action-filled alternatives that will still get the heart racing and make it an event to remember.


For the daring bachelor who likes to try new things, extreme sports are a good way to prepare for the adventure of holy matrimony. These adventurous ideas are sure to get the adrenalin flowing and strengthen the bond between him and his buddies.


Take The Plunge

There is nothing more exciting (and terrifying) than jumping out of a plane, freefalling at roughly 190-kilometres-per-hour and doing it with close friends. Skydiving is not for the faint-hearted, but it is a great way to get the heart pumping and ensure a bachelor party that your husband-to-be will never forget. And don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe as each member of the party will undergo training and be matched up with an experienced professional for the jump. As an added bonus, a professional photographer will be there to capture all of the excitement. After he has taken a literal plunge, the plunge into marriage will be a piece of cake for this extreme bachelor!


Friendly Competition

A pleasant game of paintball is a great way to celebrate upcoming nuptials with friends. Paintball bachelor parties are completely private and provide a whole day of entertainment, while highly trained field referees will ensure your future husband has a safe experience and doesn’t come back covered in bruises. Paintball is great for all ages and is an extremely exhilarating way to creating some wonderful memories.


A Manly Adventure

White water rafting is a sure way to make a bachelor party a hit. Most companies offer several adventures that range from fun and relaxed to the ultimate high-adrenaline rush, so your beau will be able to choose one to match his level of excitement. White water rafting is the perfect, macho bucks party activity and can be made into an entire camping trip – navigating the waters by day and camping under the stars at night.


Start Your Engine

Does your man have a need for speed? Why not treat him to a day at a race car driving school where he can let out his nervous energy on the track without worrying about speed limits? Bachelor parties are all about bonding and there is no better way to do that than with a little friendly competition around the track. The best part is, they can go around the track as many times as they like, so the fun doesn’t end until the man of the hour says so.


Road Tripping

There is nothing men love more than a good road trip! Setting off for unknown destinations or planning a weekend away will make for a great bachelor party and, as an added bonus, it’s budget-friendly. If your groom-to-be is a fan of the outdoors, a weekend in nature complete with plenty of beer and fishing is an excellent alternative to a traditional bucks party. Whether it’s simply just a drive until the tank runs out, a ski trip to the mountains or camping beside the lake, it’s sure to include plenty of male bonding time. Remember, a good mix of music is a must on a road trip, so why not prepare a personalised CD for him and his friends?


Get Tipsy

If your groom is not the adventurous type and likes his bachelor party to come with a hint of sophistication, then a day spent wine tasting at some of the most beautiful wineries is the way to go. And don’t worry, you don’t have to be an expert on wine in order to enjoy a wine tour, so him and his buddies are sure to have a good time. If your guy isn’t much of a wine drinker, beer tastings are also available, or he can choose to do a mix of both and get the best of both worlds.


Keep it Casual

Barbecue, beers and buddies is the perfect combination that will guarantee your man and his friends have a fun and relaxed bachelor party. If your guy is more of the laidback kind, you can’t go wrong with a bit of bonding around the outdoor barbecue or some fun backyard cricket. It also allows him the opportunity to hit the town or the casino at night for some good old-fashioned gambling.


Whatever your man is into, whether that is an adrenaline-fuelled or relaxed bachelor party, there are plenty of options out there that will make it one to remember. Just remember to be creative – there are plenty of PG-rated adventures out there to suit the taste of every groom (and his bride) in order to create some of the most memorable moments to welcome him into married life.
