The bachelor party is the last boy’s night out before the wedding. In the movies, these groups of guys travel to different cities and usually don’t really remember what they even did. In reality, there is no one type of bachelor party, even though the movie scenario may happen sometimes. The most important ‘I Do’ for the groom is at the wedding, but there are a few ‘I Do’s’ that are involved in bachelor parties. It can be as knowing exactly what they want to eat for dinner or a particular bar they want to end the night with. They don’t generally seem to care too much about all the details of a bachelor party but they do seem to have strong convictions on one or two details. So naturally I went right to the source and asked real grooms weigh in and tell me what they said ‘I Do’ to wanting to include in their bachelor parties and found a few interesting answers!
“As long as my best friends are there and we spend some quality time together, I’ll be happy…and some good quality beer like Wayerbacher Merry Monks. I’m looking forward to checking out this blueberry beer from Jessup’s Tavern in Old New Castle and filling my growler with their Ommegang Fire and Blood Red Ale, their Game of Thrones themed beer. I can’t wait!” - Jack, New Castle, DE
I was dead set on Savannah, Georgia from the start for the best St. Patty’s Day celebration in the country. We rented a van to all road trip down together. Hanging out and drinking with the guys was top on my list.”

“My bachelor party is going to be a weekend at the beach. Lots of time on the sand, and maybe hit a few bars at night. The most important part of it for me is having my friends there, since even fun activities can be ruined by not having the right people there. Drinking games or whatever with buddies, reliving college again I guess. Maybe we’ll go fishing or something like that? I’m up for anything!” - Michael, Washington D.C.
“I wanted to be at the shore for my summer bachelor party. I wanted to go wave running, fishing, BBQ and relax with my friends!” - Mark, Philadelphia, PA
“I wanted three things: red meat, gin and scotch So we went to Fuego de Chao for the meat, a fancy bar, Prohibition, for the scotch, and ended the night at a pub, O’Donovans, for the scotch.” - Rick, St. Louis Park, MI
“I did not want to travel far or make my friends have to travel too much. Going to Philly meant everybody was able to come for a whole weekend. One night we stayed in and got take out, played video games and played beer pong on the back deck. The second night, we went out to bars in a limo. It was great.” - Zack, Wilmington, DE
