So you are getting married or you are the best man of the soon-to-be groom and what does a marriage mean…that’s right the time honored tradition of the bachelor party.
In years gone by, the bachelor party usually meant lots of drinking and of course strippers. But in recent years gentlemen and girls alike are ready to get married a little later in life and the college “daze” mindset of drinking all evening, watching women take their clothes off, and nursing hangovers well into the next night has been giving way to more tame nights out with the guys. Just because your bachelor party doesn’t include hangovers, strippers and parts of the night that can only be recalled through blurry cell phone pictures doesn’t mean it needs to be tame.
Many times the best man wait until the last minute and takes the road of least resistance, well who really wants that path to haunt them for years to come?
