Bucks parties are a tradition in most cultures. This might be the day a man remembers for the rest of his life so if you have been tasked with being the chief organiser of the event, you have an important duty. But, let’s be honest, it’s better to be a guest at a bucks party than to be the one guy who is responsible for it all. Things could turn out great or they can be spectacularly bad and leave a stain on your good name.
It’s difficult to keep half a dozen mates together in one place at the same time, especially now. It is even harder to keep things running smoothly when alcohol and naked babes are involved. So naturally, the guy who doesn’t get to enjoy the night is the best man. That sucks but someone has to do it. The good news is there are bucks party venues Melbourne companies that offer and packages that cover everything from transport to drinks, food, and the entertainment. Some would say that’s the lazy way out but truth be told, you will need help with this especially now with the Pandemic and restrictions on how people can interact with each other. So, here are some do’s and dont’s you can follow.
Don’t do destination bucks parties
We all love the idea of sun, fun, sand and cheap drinks in Bali but overseas trips are expensive and not so safe right now. If getting half a dozen blokes in one place is hard, how much harder is flying that number out of the country just so they can get drunk and watch foreign strippers. It’s not worth it, especially since Melbourne has so many great venues and so many things you can do. Seriously, you might not even need to leave your home. If you have a big enough backyard or a house that can hold all 6 or 12 of your buddies? Great. Just don’t forget to book an exotic dancer or your mates will hold it against you for the rest of your life.
Don’t go paintballing
Paintballing almost always makes the list of every buck party idea with good reason, a day in the woods playing war games with your friends does sound like a blast. However, those paintball pellets might not be lethal, they are painful. The buck is always the target. The poor guy will be hit so many times it might take days for him to look less black and blue. You will feel the wrath of the bride of you deliver her soon-to-be-husband with bruises all over. Princesses want a good-looking prince charming, not a battered troll. It’s better to have a rule against any activity that puts the groom in danger. So you want to avoid things like horse-back riding or go- karts if it’s something that he has never been on.
Instead of shooting at each other try something like zombie shooting. Zero Latency is one of those new-fangled bucks party venues Melbourne has to offer. It’s a virtual reality space that might have you feeling like a cast of the “Walking Dead”. You get a VR headset and an accurate laser gun and you can blast zombies all day long and no one needs to get hurt.
Do hire strippers
It’s true that we’ve had a pretty bad year. Entertainment venues were closed, strip clubs too. Not only that but people who were about to get married had to postpone or cancel their weddings and some relationships couldn’t withstand the cabin fever. The clubs are open now and if not for anything, support the hard-working local girls by booking your bucks night at a strip club near you. It’s just one of those fun things you cannot afford to miss. It wouldn’t be a bucks party without someone getting naked.
Get off social media
People need to stop saying:” what happens at bucks party events stays there” and then turn around and post pictures and videos on Facebook. It’s not cool. Subjecting your mate to a mankinis and having him strut in front of some very drunk mates at 2am is fun. It’s one of those funny bucks ideas but social media can be seen by family members and potential future employers. Even if you delete the evidence, these things never really go away. So, confiscate cellphones and cameras before the festivities begin. If you all blackout, it will come back to you, in bits and pieces.
