Although it’s a lot of work, it can be pretty exciting to plan the festivities for a bachelor party. If it’s your first time planning a bachelor party, however, then there are some rookie mistakes you need to know. This guide will show you three of the biggest mistakes you must avoid when planning a bachelor party.


If you’re in charge of planning a bachelor party, you may feel tempted to plan a wide range of exciting activities. While planning a sufficient amount of fun activities is necessary for a good bachelor party, you don’t want to overwhelm everyone by having too much in store.

For example, if you’re spending the afternoon on a party boat, you want to have enough time to relax and have fun. If you’re cramming too much into a single day or weekend, you’re going to be rushing to and from each activity, instead of really soaking it all in. Plus, having a more flexible schedule will help if your plans need to change on the fly. This can happen for any number of reasons—from slow traffic to event cancellations.


Aside from planning too much, you also have to make sure those activities are a good fit for the groom. If the groom hates golf, then you probably shouldn’t make stopping at the local course a top priority. Likewise, if the groom has a certain love for go-karting, then seek out places to do so during the party. Even if the itinerary is full of activities that are fun to you, if you aren’t taking the groom’s likes and dislikes into account, then you’re not properly planning a bachelor party.


When you’re planning a bachelor party, it’s not uncommon to want to plan the biggest, craziest night or weekend possible. However, it’s important not to get too reckless with the activities. This is especially important when it comes to drinking. Know your limits and have transportation planned ahead of time. Thanks to ride-sharing services, if everyone wants to take part in drinking (responsibly), then they can without compromising the night’s transportation. Always keep safety in mind when putting an activity on a bachelor party itinerary.

Now that you’re aware of some of the biggest mistakes you must avoid when planning a bachelor party, you can ensure the day is fun and relaxing. At ATX Party Boats, we can provide your group with services like boat tours on Lake Austin so you can spend the afternoon partying on the water instead of sitting around at the hotel. There are a few tips for going on Lake Austin boat tours you should know beforehand, and just like the tips above, they’ll ensure you have the best time possible on the big day.
