When a man is to enter marriage shortly, his male friends throw him a “last” party – called bachelor party. It is usually the best man’s duty to plan this event to send off the groom to marriage properly.
The bachelor party is not a modern invention. In fact, its origins date back to the 5th century BC, when the Spartans started the tradition of celebrating a man’s marriage by having a dinner with him the day before. This practice continued in modern times.
However, at first, the ritual of toasting and celebrating the passage of the groom from single life to marriage still kept the form of a dinner.
It was somewhere in the last few decades that the dinner was replaced by a party. The reason for doing it also changed, just like its form.
In modern times bachelor parties are not thrown as a celebration, but more as a “last night of freedom” when the groom can do everything he will no longer do in marriage. That is why these parties are usually marked by gambling, strippers, and tons of alcohol.
Lately, however, these practices are going out of fashion, and the bachelor night out goes back to its roots when it was used as an opportunity for male bonding.
No matter the kind of bachelor party you are about to throw for your friend, here are a couple of props you will need.
First, let’s start before the party. In order to make sure that everyone of importance to the groom is there, it is a good idea to prepare an invitation for the guests. Sending out an invitation card is a good idea for another reason too: with the RSVP part added to it, you can know which people will show up, and for how many guests you should prepare.
Take a look at the following few invitations we picked out for you. From simple ones to ones starring the boys’ favorite: beer – the choice is vast. If none of the invitations we handpicked for you fits your requirements or bachelor party theme, then check out the rest at Paperblast.com.
After the invitations have been sent, it’s time that you organize the party itself! Besides a venue, drinks, and food, you need to think about one other thing: decorations. We are aware that men are not fans of too many decorations, but a simple banner cannot hurt. In fact, it can only turn the attention toward your table – or give the explanation for your celebratory behavior.
