The list is incredibly important it sets the stage for how many guys are coming, what size of an event you’re trying to plan for, and what level of “craziness” you should be expecting out of the group. The list is the way you’re going to cost out things, it’s the group you need to email and call to get their ideas, and it’s the group that you’ll be relying on to help carry a passed out bachelor back to the room.
In order to get the list right, first sit with the bachelor and try and get a list of EVERYBODY that the bachelor may or may not want to come to the party. After you have that huge list, give the bachelor a couple days and then re-work the list to take out people who will suck at the party. Help the bachelor realize that he may not want a bunch of co-workers he’s never hung out with to show up, and he may not want every uncle on the bride’s side to show up either.
The list and the final group of guys that shows up are what makes a bachelor party great. You could have the best events set up and the craziest/hottest strippers ever but if the guys that you had on the list and that show up to the party suck – it’ll be a lot harder to make it as good a time as it could be.
So – get the list right, then contact us and we’ll take care of the rest of planning an amazing party. Also, feel free to use our Bachelor Party iPhone App to keep track of the list – it’s just one of the tools available on there.
