Bachelor parties can get expensive, and if the party budget isn’t filled with cash you will want to know how to throw a cheap bachelor party. However, you don’t have to bar hop or hit the strip clubs. You can easily throw a cheap bachelor party that your guests will remember for years to come.
- Decide where the party will be. In order to throw a cheap bachelor party, you should consider having it at someone’s home. This way you aren’t paying to rent facilities and you aren’t hitting up random bars, both of which can get expensive. If the weather is nice, choose someone with a lot of yard space and have a bonfire. If the weather isn’t permitting, choose a home with a lot of room indoors or someone who has a finished basement.
- Send out invitations. This should be mailed at least two weeks before the party date to allow your guests enough time to RSVP. In addition to the pertinent party information, tell guests to bring their own beer. This way you aren’t spending hundreds of dollars on alcohol. Most guests don’t mind bringing their own drinks to a party.
- Decorate the party area. The great thing about a bachelor party is that decorations don’t have to be expensive, or even detailed for that matter. The best thing to do is keep it simple. Keeping the decorations simple keeps the party stress-free, but also makes it that much easier to throw a cheap bachelor party. Hang posters of swimsuit models on the walls, have the television tuned into the sports channel and set up a card table or two. Set up a food table for snacks and fill coolers with ice to hold the beer. Mute the television and put some party music on the radio.
- Plan party games. Bachelor parties are all about fun and there are plenty of games that can be used. If you are holding an outdoor event, set up a few games of corn hole, horse shoes and a beer pong table. For indoor events, have card tables for poker and move the beer pong table inside.
