I recently watched The Hangover, about a bachelor party gone horribly wrong. Anyway, I wanted to share a related tip that I think is very important.
Don’t plan a bachelor or bachelorette party the week, and especially the day or two, before the wedding. Unlike the film, I don’t think the groom or bride will disappear and possibly miss the wedding, but it’s possible that a flight can be delayed, someone can get a horrible hangover and be sick on the wedding day, someone could get in a fight or land in the hospital.
The week of the wedding is a very busy time putting the final details together and preparing for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, post-wedding brunch and the honeymoon, so plan your bachelor and bachelorette parties a few weeks or even months before the wedding so that you have time to recover before the big day.
