The Bachelor party

14 June 2012, 10:19
Earlier this year I was chosen to be one of the grooms men at my best friend's wedding.

His brother was the best-man, of course, but he is in Joburg and we are in Cape Town.

The task of the bachelor party was passed on to the grooms men, in more particularly me.

The groom had one request, to have a weekend away with the boys on a wild farm. It was great and we had loads of fun, more drunken times than I would’ve liked, but we still had fun.

The only problem with organizing a party (piss-up) like this, is that it's expensive and in most cases not everyone can make it.

Now almost six months later, we are heading towards my brother's wedding. As faith will have it, I am the best-man and the responsibility now squarely lies on me.

I have a couple of ideas, not going to tell you as this will influence your decision. Maybe there are some of you out there that have had legendary bachelor parties that can share it with me.

The only rules I have for this party is quite simple. The groom doesn’t drink, doesn’t want to stand at robots dressed like an '80s transvestite and my rule, because there is too many married men joining the party, no strippers.

Also I would like to know if it’s “OK” for the boys to contribute financially to the event. We have one Saturday, about a month before the wedding, so there is time for him to find his way back home if needs be. Thank you in advance
