It’s a common problem most bachelor party organizers face and it’s one of the most important first steps in planning the party, getting an estimate of the number of people coming. Here’s some ideas on how to fix that:
- Send emails / talk to the guests EARLY! The earlier you ask the more time there is for them to plan.
- Give them details. Most people don’t commit because they want to make sure it’s going to be fun enough and what’s going on (even though they won’t help coming up with those ideas). When you give them details they’ll be more inclined to respond or at least comment.
- Ask for a small deposit. Asking for money gets people motivated to say yes or no.
- Bother them a lot. If they’re mad you’re trying to get them to come party who cares.
