Of course, the easy answer is that the cost is in direct relation to whatever it is you’re doing, where you’re doing it, and when you’re doing it. Going at a certain time of year could cost more or less, choosing one place over another will influence the cost, and it even gets as tricky as knowing exactly which time to show up somewhere to get in free vs. having a major charge.
The advice that we give that has worked for the most number of parties is to watch your costs carefully using some type of spreadsheet (or just let us do it for you when you contact us) that has a detailed breakdown of every possible cost, the number of people, and keeping track of how much people pay you and what you owe the places you’ll be going.
Before you start planning too much of the party it’s a good idea to feel out an idea of what people that will be coming are willing to pay. The worst stories we have heard from bachelor parties are the ones that involve problems with the money (and that story from this one guy that thought the hooker was a girl and it wasn’t). Knowing whether or not your group is going to be able to afford 50 or 500 bucks a person makes a HUGE difference in what you should be looking to do.
So, while we can’t provide a definitive one size fits all answer to the question – how much does it cost to have a bachelor party in AC we can tell you a few things. First, of many of the places you can go for a bachelor party – AC is a great idea because it is very affordable. Second, you’ll want to ask/tell guys for more than you think you’re going to need, because you’ll use it somehow. Third, you can save a TON of money by doing a lot of prep work, knowing certain things, and working with a pro that has been solving the money problems for hundreds if not thousands of parties (hint: that’s us).
