Before you hit the booze, you could have exclusive use of a Go Kart track for 90 minutes, with 2 groups set to race around the track to claim the 1st, 2nd and 3rd titles – as well as bragging rights for the rest of the day. Once your group have raced around the track, you’ll be racing up to the private function room to show off a different set of skills on the poker tables. Your whole day is planned out and the best part is, you won’t have to lift a finger – other than to play a game or two of poker – because tables, chips and poker accessories, gorgeous topless dealers and an experienced party host will all be prepared to keep the bucks party pumping. The boys can enjoy a $500-$1,0000 bar tab for food and/or drink over 3 hours, with the opportunity to add more funds if needed.

Bucks Party Games

Hosting a party generally means you’re in charge of everything — food, drinks, venue, invites, and games — to make sure that the guests are comfortable and thrilled. Every detail and aspect of a specific social gathering contributes to making it a memorable event for every guest. This is why it is highly important that everything should be on point. Remember, a buck’s party is a celebration of a man’s last hurrah of bachelorhood. It acts as a rite of passage from a savage single life to a more stable and meaningful married life. Before he gets hitched and marries the love of his life, let the groom have the time of his life with his best bros in a banging buck’s party of all time! It only makes sense to fill the night with unlimited booze, sexy booze and a series of fun drinking games. Photo: Maurício Mascaro via Pexels After planning the theme and venue of this notorious celebration, will it really be a bucks party without games? As you may know, bucks parties are usually filled with guys from both the bride and the groom’s side, so it’s most likely that some guys have never even met before. You can definitely rely on fun and cheeky bucks night party games to break the ice and bring out the joy in everyone! With that said, check out this list of Poker Deluxe-approved bucks party games that are guaranteed to be the best guy pleasers (if you know what we mean). 1.Most Likely This is a nice first game to play to break the ice and ease into the wilder games to follow. Gather together, with drinks within reach. One person will state a “most likely” question. For example, “Who would most likely get wasted tonight?” Photo: Maurício Mascaro via Pexels On the count of three, people should point to someone they think would most likely do what the person said. Take a shot for every person who pointed at you. If three people pointed at you to most likely get wasted, you have to take three shots. 2. Scavenger Hunt This is a perfect game that becomes more challenging during the latter half of the party when the guys get tipsier. Make a list of the things each bachelor should do as you go bar hopping or as the party progresses. The person who ends up doing all or even just most of the of the items on the list wins. Photo: Breakingpic via Pexels Coming up with the items on the list is the challenging part. Release those creative juices and put it down on paper! Check out some examples we made for your reference! – Get a girl to write her number anywhere on the groom’s body – Find a bar that serves the shot “Blowjob” and take a shot – Give a stranger a lap dance and have someone take a video of it for proof – Look for someone who needs a free hug and give them one – Acquire a free drink for the groom – Get a girl to agree to do a body shot on you or the groom and vice versa 3. Drunk Jenga This popular childhood game will get its spotlight in a buck’s party, and of course, with a twist. Basically, you play Jenga how it’s supposed to be played: take turns in getting a wood block out and stacking it again on top. If the tower falls, the last person who pulled out a block out loses. Photo: Zaimful via Pixabay Here is where the interesting part comes in, get a large glass. Everyone in the game pours his own shot of preferred drink — it’s either beer, vodka, whiskey, wine, etc. Let the girls join in too and have even more fun! The loser chugs whatever was mixed into the large glass before the game began. Good luck! 4. Buck’s Bingo Similar to the Scavenger Hunt game, the Buck’s Bingo is also a good alternative. The difference is that you play it like a normal Bingo game. But instead of playing with numbers on the card, you will see tasks that you should accomplish. Winners are either the first ones who can complete a horizontal line, vertical line, diagonal line or a blackout (completed all squares) — depending on the game master. You can find some of these ready-made online, or you could get creative again and make your own tasks! 5. Beer Pong Photo: Burst via Pexels Unleash the competitive side of the guys and play beer pong! Make each player/teams use different strategies to win like letting the girls dance around for distraction or having a unique system as a team. Every ball that is shot in the cup, the team will either chug, strip, or do a dare. Don’t forget to bring your A-game to this buck’s party or you’re going to lose! 6. Medusa Photo: OpenClipart-Vectors via Pixabay Gather around a table full of shot glasses filled with your preferred alcoholic beverage. Start the game with all the players’ head down on the table. On the count of three, everyone should look up to stare at another player. If you’re looking at someone who isn’t looking at you, you’re safe. If you happen to look at another player’s eyes, shout “Medusa!” and take a shot. 7. Cup Swap For this game, assign someone to a timer and you will need two cups and a spoon. One cup should be full of your preferred drink, while the other one is empty. For each turn, the player must transfer as much drink as they can from the filled cup to the empty cup using the spoon, in a minute or less. When the time is up, the player must drink whatever is left in the original (filled) cup. Photo: Sigrid Abalos via Pexels To add a bit of a challenge, let one or a few sexy waitresses distract him by doing their own thing. Let’s see if the girls can break his concentration! 8. Underwear Twister Photo: Wikimedia Commons Spice up the competition of a classic game and bring in the girls to play along. Let the sexy strippers and waitresses play a fun game of Twister in their underwear. Just picture out the girls with skimpy outfits reaching out for the colours to touch, stretching their arms and legs in different directions. Definitely a viewing pleasure, yeah? If everyone’s up for it, the guys can join in too. It’s your night, guys! 9. Attached at the Hip Start this game by letting each guy pair up with a stripper/sexy waitress. Next, write a body part on a piece of paper and pile them up in the middle of the table. Each pair will pick a piece of paper, and they should stay attached to their partner with that specific body part for as long as they can. (Example: hand to hand or forehead to forehead) Every time they separate, take a shot. Make the game interesting by having everyone do a challenge while being attached to the one another! You can do a statue dance, a “pin the dick on the groom” or a traditional truth or dare. 10. “How Well Do You Know Me?” If you’re someone who watches some vloggers, then you probably know that this is a popular challenge that they do. So basically, you test the buck on how well he knows the love of his life. Before the day of the buck’s party, have the bride-to-be list a series of questions in Easy, Medium and Difficult categories. Photo: TeroVesalainen via Pixabay Here are sample questions for your reference: – What is her favourite breakfast meal? – What is her bra size? – What is her dream travel destination? – What is her nickname for your balls? – What is her go-to TV show? If he fails to answer a question within 5 seconds, he is in for a punishment that you and the guys think of. Get creative with your punishments, but also keep in mind NOT to torture the groom-to-be or else you all might get punishment from the bride. Yikes! After taking a look at all these bucks party games challenges, do you think you’ve got what it takes to win? Here at Poker Deluxe, we just want everyone to have a good time. If that means holding your bucks party in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane / Gold Coast, Perth, or Adelaide — then that’s what we’ll do and more! The groom will surely label his buck’s party celebration as one for the books. With that, you will receive a glorious pat on the back for being the best “Best Man” ever for organising such a wild and memorable party.

The History of Bucks Parties, Revealed!

According to McCrindle, an average of 326 weddings across Australia per day. If you think about it, that’s like thousands and thousands of wedding a year. With marriages come with many multiple pre wedding celebrations such as the engagement party, a bridal shower, and of course a bucks party. Photo: SplitShire via Pexels What comes into your mind when you heart the words “bucks party”? Society has painted a picture in all of our minds that this all-men party is a night filled with debauchery activities to celebrate the groom’s “last hurrah”. This infamous party is one of the most awaited pre wedding activity that men just can’t wait to celebrate. This notion has been going on for years, thanks to iconic movies, Bachelor Party (1984) and The Hangover (2009), which brought about controversial feedback and reviews from its audiences during each of its release. To give you a little proof of just how wild people think of bucks parties, think about the all Asian cast film of 2018, Crazy Rich Asians. If you’ve seen the movie, surely you would remember how the rich dude brought all the guys in the middle of the ocean via helicopters! It’s crazy rich and crazy wild celebration filled with entitled wealthy bachelors who were surrounded by girls from different countries, and booze. If that ain’t wild enough to call it THE bucks party 2018, I don’t know what is. Photo: Jass Sama via Pexels History of Bachelor Party So, where did this all start? Let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember the history of bachelor party! First off, what is a bucks party? For the sake of those who are not familiar with what it is, a bucks party is defined as a celebration of a guy’s marriage and making the most fun out of his last few days of being a bachelor. In an article by How Stuff Works, a proper bachelor party is some kind of rite of passage of a man from singlehood to a married life, and not really about manliness but it’s said to be more about bonding with close friends and family. Photo: rawpixel.com via Pexels You might be wondering why a bucks party has different terms in other countries. It’s commonly known as the bachelor party in many countries such as America, and it’s called a stag party in the U.K., Ireland and Canada. A modern day bucks party is widely known to be associated with naughty activities such as gambling and poker nights, and lap dances or flirting. Why? Well, the notorious image of bucks party shenanigans started way back in the 5th century when Spartan soldiers hosted dinners and proposed a toast in honour of the groom. In other sources, it was said that bachelor parties before involved black-tie dinners which is usually organized by the groom’s father with toasts to the groom and bride. Since then, it grew more boisterous as people learned to be more creative in the bucks party planning. The more recent traditions of bucks parties such as humiliation, intimate lap dancing, and excessive drinking & partying became a pre wedding celebration staple for guys in the 70’s-80’s comedy films. Much later, women have also came up with their own version of this pre wedding events: the bachelorette party. Traditionally, women are limited to bridal showers only. It’s a party wherein each guest will give gifts to the bride, hang out together and have fun. These gifts are for parenthood or for the married life that she’s getting into. If you’re pretty active online, there are a lot of prominent people who have gone very publicly about their bachelor and bachelorette parties which is pretty fun & amusing to witness.   Photo: Isabella Mendes via Pexels As crazy bucks party ideas continue to flourish — flying out to Vegas or Bali or some other dream destination, ultimate poker game night, bar hopping, intense night to morning parties, etc. — it is important to know that it is a goodbye celebration of the groom to his single life, and to relieve himself from wedding jitters. It’s a perfect time to bond with all his best buds, talk all night, have fun, play games, and make unforgettable memories.   Bucks Party 2019 Checklist Here to help you with the party planning, take a look at this checklist to keep you on track! Photo: Pixabay via Pexels   Boundaries – Different bride & grooms have different preferences, and as the organizer of this event, you have to know the limits. Make sure to be aware of the dos & don’ts of the couple because you don’t want either of them on a bad mood if you make either of them do something they don’t want to! Budget – Before you confirm any bookings, make sure that the guests are okay with the budget. Not everyone is financially capable to spend a lot of something that isn’t in the budget so it’s a good idea to get a say from everyone. This is a nice way to ensure that everyone is comfortable with it. Time – When you’re done with the boundaries and budget, figure out when you want to hold the party. Here’s a pro tip that we’ve all learned from the movies, do not hold bachelor parties a day before the wedding. It is guaranteed not a good idea unless you decide to have a peaceful spa night. Pre wedding celebrations are best done a few weeks or maybe even months before the actual wedding. That will give all the guests and the groom ample time to recover and step right back into reality. Location – Depending on the budget, you can find the perfect place for the celebration. It can be a private function room, a beach location, rent a relaxing rest house, or pay a party planning service that specialises on bucks parties!     Photo: Pixabay via Pexels Speaking of event organising that specialises on bucks parties, here’s a treat for you!

Bucks Party Ideas
Here’s What Really Happens At A Bachelor Party

A night to celebrate a man’s last few days of freedom before tying the knot – that is a bachelor party. When planning a special night for a groom, the two staples of every bachelor party idea are girls and booze. This “no girlfriends allowed” night will surely be one for the memory. If you think about it, what do guys really do at a bucks party? What really goes down in a bachelor party full of guys and booze? Check out 7 things that really happen in bachelor party events! What Happens At Bachelor Party Events 1) Surprisingly sex is nowhere to be found, and sometimes the groom goes missing too. Contrary to popular belief, there isn’ t actual sex in bachelor parties. It’s more about drinking than actually playing around with the girls. Although bachelor parties are almost always associated with sex, it only highlights the idea of sex, not the actual thing. It is said that all the single guys push the taken guys into doing something that would get them in trouble with their girlfriends.  Don’t give in to the temptations, boys! Tip for girlfriends: Before letting the boyfriend go into the bachelor party, honestly tell him what makes you uncomfortable so that he knows what to avoid. Because bachelor parties are more on getting the groom drunk it’s a good idea that someone is delegated the honorable task of keeping an eye on him, or else the rest of the men will face the wrath of the bride to be. 2) It’s a party to relive the good old days. A lot of bachelor parties are all about hanging out just like in high school or in college. Some parties will be just as wild as it was before, but some men like to keep it chill. As people get older, they tend to get tamer. Many, if not all, of the groom’s friends, will gang up on him and mock him to the fullest. It’s just for fun of course because a little fun doesn’t hurt, right? Just beware of possible injuries, no one likes an injured groom or best man wearing a cast during the wedding! 3) Boys will be boys. One minute everyone’s enjoying the night and then the next thing you know, two guys will suddenly just get into a fist fight for whatever reason. With guys, there will always be games or some kind of battle to show off their strength and to feed their ego. It can be through an arm-wrestling match, a friendly sparring, a hilarious belly flop contest, or a video game one on one. However, even if things get intense between two guys, it will all be okay at the end of the day. That’s just how it is with men. In general, after the games or a bad conflict, bachelor parties won’t end up in cut off relationships. Bros will be bros no matter what, and there will undoubtedly be the manly hugs and apologies that is not always seen. 4) There’s one guy that everyone gets annoyed with. Yes, all the guys at the party get drunk or intoxicated. It’s all fun and games until that one guy takes it too far with all the jokes & teasing and ruins all the good vibes of the bachelor party weekend. Whether it’s doing all kinds of crazy things out of drunkenness or going way overboard the teasing with girls, there’s always that one annoying guy who will get too loud and naughty for his own good. 5) The taken guys are surprisingly excellent & loyal boyfriends/husbands. It’s surprising how guys support each other in being behaved – not flirting around with other girls, not drinking too much, and updating there girlfriends on whatever is going on at the moment. Even though guys tease each other with girls and booze, they wouldn’t go too far to make you do something that might put your relationship at risk. #Respect 6) The morning after is a disaster. A bachelor party’s aftermath is so much worse than the parties back in high school and college. The bad hangover and a severe episode of vomiting are bound to happen. For the parties that are spent at a hotel suite or in the groom’s house, they say that you could really cringe from the mess that is the place. The guys will be seen passed out on different areas of the room and smelling like cigarettes and alcohol. Yikes! 7) Sometimes, it’s about gambling and drinks. Another bachelor party idea is to spend the night at a casino like a poker night party. Gambling and drinks are also a great pair when it comes to men’s parties. It’s great for those guys who aren’t the wild kind, but still knows how to have fun differently. No matter how things end up, spending a night with the guys will always be a time to remember. There’s also no better way to spend the last few days of your singleness and freedom than with the people who have been with you from the start. Friendships are precious relationships to treasure, and the best way to do that is through a banging bucks party that involves living the time of your lives before starting a new one – the marriage life – with their special person.

Located at the top end of Queen Street, in order to find Pinball Paradise, you must first enter through the ground floor bar, Island Somewhere. Once inside, you will find a funky little bar, lounge area and beer garden, but no sign of a function room anywhere. That is, until you push the skull on the bookshelf opposite the bar. This will reveal a hidden staircase that will take you up to your very own private function space, Pinball Paradise. Once upstairs, the room is alit with 13 pristine condition pinball machines all flashing, waiting to be played. There are the classics including Dirty Harry, Terminator 2, Star Wars and Ghostbusters, as well as more modern machines including Game of Thrones. Not only will you get private use of all 13 pinball machines, but the room also has it’s own private bar and rest rooms so you won’t even have to leave the room. And if this isn’t enough, there are also 3 TV screens and a Nintendo 64 so you can play classics like Mario Kart 64 and Goldeneye 64 for ultimate bragging rights. Poker Deluxe has teamed up with Pinball Paradise to offer the ultimate bucks’ party package all in the one place so you don’t have to stress about booking venue’s, drinks, activities, girls etc. They do it all for you! As part of this incredible package, you will get exclusive use of the entire function room for 3 hours, Terminator 2 and Dirty Harry on FREE PLAY as well as unlimited Nintendo 64 (other machines all available to play at a cost), a 3 hour drink package consisting of unlimited tap beer and cider, and plenty of chips and wedges to snack on once you get hungry from all the gaming. And to make sure everyone is kept entertained, while half the group is playing on the machines, the other half will be treated to a poker tournament dealt by Poker Deluxe’s sexy topless dealers. They then swap so everyone gets a go at playing poker with the top 4 from each round going through to the grand final. Just to top it off, you have the option to add a gorgeous topless waitress to serve and pour your drinks so you won’t even have to leave the pinball machines or poker table to get a drink. Surely there’s not much better than that! The best part? This package only has a minimum of 15 guests required, perfect for smaller groups, and is also one of Poker Deluxe’s cheapest packages, so it’s not hard to imagine it will book out quickly!

The Bull and Bear Tavern Melbourne

One of Poker Deluxe’s most popular bucks party venues in Melbourne, The Bull and Bear Tavern is the perfect bar for your best mates last swan song. Located right in the heart of the CBD in Melbourne, tucked away just down Flinders lane, it’s a great spot to start the night and then kick-on at Crown Casino or another of our favourite hangouts; Centrefold Lounge strip club. The best thing about the Bull and Bear tavern is that it’s suited to small and larger bucks parties, but without breaking the budget. Sure it’s not the penthouse cigar lounge at the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas, but the beauty of that is if you do get a little loud, spill a few drinks or dress the buck in ladies attire, you’re not going to get kicked to the curb. With tasty finger food and cheap drinks, especially for city prices, it’s the perfect bucks party venue in the man cave; known as the Tavern bar. You’ll pay NO venue hire and NO minimum bar spend, making it ideal for even the smallest of groups. You can fit up to four poker tables with topless dealers no problem at all or you can go with 1 or 2 tables and rotate players. For example: The first group of guys play poker for the first hour, while the others play some pool, beer pong or just relax and have a chat. Then the groups swap for the 2nd hour. Then we get the top 4 or 5 players from each round (usually we try to keep the buck in) to playoff for the final hour and see who claims the trophy and ultimate bucks party bragging rights. Your group will have exclusive use of the Basement function room for the duration of your event which features: 2 pool tables, jukebox & iPod dock, pinball machines, darts board, finger food & bistro dining, private bar. We even provide a free beer pong table to keep the boys entertained once they’ve tried bluffing one too many times and finished with poker. You’ll have everything you need for an epic battle including the table, cups and balls, all you have to do is fill them with beer. Or better yet get your topless waitress to fill the cups! Poker Deluxe holds literally 100’s of bucks parties here every year and boy do we have some stories to tell. But don’t worry, what happens on the bucks stays on the bucks! So here are some great laughs from our bucks party ideas at the Bull and Bear Tavern: • Chaz or Chad – one of our buck’s name was Chad and so his best man printed a bunch of pictures that only showed the hairline or nose of the person in the photo. Guests had to pick if the person in the photo was Chad (the buck) or Chaz Bono (Cher’s transgender child). • Grandfather “Blue” – if you’ve ever seen the movie Old School with Frank the Tank played by Will Ferrell, then you should remember his 90 year old fraternity hopeful “old man Blue”. Well let’s just say Old Blue had never been so alive and eyes wide open as when Portia laid across his lap and gave him body shots. • Fancy dress for the Buck – with too many to mention, we’ve seen every form of public degradation that costumes can provide a buck. From ballerinas to nurses, fairies to princesses and even a gorilla suit with a ball and chain. Fancy dress is always more fun for the guests than the man of honour.

Bucks Party Planning Essentials

So your best mate and partner in crime for the last 20yrs has decided to crossover and start a married life of bliss, yeah right! Well whether you do or don’t like his lady of choice, this is not the question, as you’ve been bestowed the honour of being his best man and therefore the epic task of organising and finding bucks party ideas for the best bucks party. Now, if you’ve never tried to get a bunch of useless blokes together for a boys trip or something of that nature, then you’ll know it’s about as easy as winning triple jump at the Olympics without any feet. check out this great bucks party idea from Norway. Like any best man, you want an awesome but unique bucks party idea for your boy’s last hoorah, while keeping everyone happy, and don’t be surprised if this means the future wife or father-in-law, on the night. So if you want an epic bucks party idea and subsequent adventure that’s jam packed full of good laughs and whatever else you want it to be, then don’t ask the wife for help; simply have a read below. With these helpful bucks party tips and hints, we’ll have you prepared for pulling together a great day and looking after everyone who attends, even that one slightly weird friend in the group who’s really a nice guy but not who you want dating your daughter. 1. Pick A Time And Place Sounds simple but easily forgotten or left too late. Not everyone has a job or family commitment that gives them the flexibility to take off for a bucks party weekend, so determine the wedding date and work backwards. The more time you give guys to arrange time-off, then the more blokes you’ll have on the day. Plus, it gives people a bit of extra time to save up some spending cash for big bash. It might even be a good idea to leave a few weeks between the wedding and the bucks. This means the groom has time to re-grow any missing eyebrows or teeth replaced from the mayhem in time for the big day. Another added bonus is that the groom can sneak in another more low key get together with the boys on the week/weekend before the wedding. It’s important to speak with the Groom and pin down a list of 2-3 dates that works for the Bucks party. Also make a list of names and email addresses for the Bucks guest-list. And finally get an idea of the style of bucks party he wants, for example: a raunchy poker cruise with girls like something out of a Las Vegas strip club or perhaps a little more tasteful like a gentlemen’s game of cards with cigars and beer. IMPORTANT – It’s never too early to start planning the buck’s party and to gather as many bucks party ideas as possible. This means you won’t have problems booking the best venues, as well as having the biggest selection of topless waitresses, poker dealers and showgirls to entertain the lads at the buck’s party. 2. Contact All The Other Groomsmen Don’t be a hero and try to organise it all alone! Speak to the groomsman and use them to assist you in getting the initial bucks party ideas organised. As soon as you know what kind of day the groom wants for his bucks party celebration, start making enquiries to help you get all the info needed, including bucks party venues, bucks adult entertainment, transport, accommodation and any other special requests. It will also help you to establish a rough budget per person. Alternatively, you always contact a bucks party organiser (like the staff at Poker Deluxe) and have them take care of absolutely everything you need for the day, including bucks ideas and activities like poker, indoor golf, bucks cruises and most importantly your Bucks Party Strippers Then you can leave it all to someone else while you bask in the glory for having done a great job! 3. Make A List Of Who’s Coming Get everyone’s email, mobile or even connect via social media. Then create an event feature on Facebook, this is a great tool for getting the whole group on the same page and suggesting any bucks party ideas to make the day that bit more special. With all the guys invited and maybe a quick poll to see which of a few dates work best for everyone, you can really start locking in activities, further bucks party ideas and girls for the boy’s night out. Be sure to make a deadline for RSVP’s, so you can keep the ball rolling, but most importantly it will let you work out a budget for the bucks party. The difference between 10 to 20 guys can mean a big difference in what the group can afford. Its also a great idea to double check with the buck if there are any other guys he might want to invite that he had first forgotten or to fill up spots left by guys who can’t attend. 4. Book A Bucks Poker Package & Get Deposits Off The Guys Decide on the ultimate bucks poker party package and try to be accurate with the guest numbers, but you can always add any late additions closer to the date. Most bucks party planners do require a deposit to secure a venue, staff and any specific ladies you want to book for your event, so it’s never too early to start asking the guys to at least throw $50 into the kitty. By asking for it in instalments, you’ll get a much better response as guys don’t have to fork over the cash in one hit and will get you a better commitment to attend. This avoids the last minute chasing around for confirmations and cash. The best part about a Poker Deluxe bucks party is you can pay the remaining balance on the night itself, so you can still collect from the non-payers even when then rock up to party. 5. Remind The Guys Again & Again & Again 2-weeks before the Bucks send out a reminder to your email guest-list or event page with details of the celebration, include meeting points, starting times, key contact, , any clothing requirements or drinking penalties etc. And basically all that you have to do is pick any girls you want to entertain the lad’s and to show up on the day to send your best mate off in style!

tips-for-the-best-man-blog- bucks-party-ideas
Bucks Party Tips For The Best Man

A wedding might be the biggest day in a woman’s life, but every man will tell you it’s his Tips for the Best Man: • Create an invite list – This is probably going to be one of the most crucial things you have to do as the best man. It might sound trivial and can easily be pushed aside when planning the day’s events. It’s best to start making the list first, so you can make sure all the guys attending the wedding are invited, plus any other close friends, colleagues and associates that the groom wants at the bucks party are available. A list will also let you work out what kind of activities, facilities, services and entertainment you want, based on the number of people and based on the budget. Also, let’s not forget that it’s not uncommon for the bride’s father and man mountain brothers to sometimes attend these things. So this is another reason (albeit for self-protection) why you need to speak with the buck directly and find out if this is the case and how it might affect or delay the start of the more saucy part of the night. • Don’t hold it the night before the wedding – Make sure you leave plenty of time to recover from the bucks party. Two weeks prior is usually a good time frame, allowing people to sober up, shrug off any injuries and give the body hair the groom may lose a chance to grow back. Holding the bucks celebrations on the same day as the hens party is a good idea. That way both partners will be out enjoying themselves rather than worrying about the other person. Unfortunately, this might make it tough for friends attending from interstate or overseas but enough warning gives everyone the chance to plan travel and take any time off work. The best part is: if one or two of the groom’s mates can’t make it before the wedding, it’s the perfect excuse to have a second bucks party! • Collect any cash before the bucks party – You don’t want to spend the bucks night collecting money from guys and then being remembered as the best man who ruined the night because you lost your wallet in the taxi, thanks to a pile of $5 and $10 notes that made it impossible to close your wallet like you were George on Seinfeld. So make sure you give everyone your bank details and a cut off date to make payment. • Pick and book your venue/s – It is always good to book a room for the main festivities, but if you decide to just hit the town and go to a few pubs or bars, it is worth calling them up in advance. Some places don’t like large groups of guys, so find venues that will happily accommodate you and avoid any potential queues. There’s nothing worse than everyone waiting half an hour and losing their buzz just to get in! If you need help with a venue, the team at Poker Deluxe can organising something no matter how big or small your budget… You can even hold your bucks on a poker boat cruise. • Don’t run out of alcohol – Perhaps the most important thing on the bucks night is that you don’t run out of alcohol! No matter how good the activities are, if you have free flowing booze, everyone will lighten up and have a good time! As the best man, it’s your job to have at least a little stockpile of drinks that can be called upon if the night turns into a big one – or in the emergency that licensed venues have called last drinks. • You can also try our friends at Liquid Infusion and have your drinks and cocktails completely catered for by professional bar staff in your home or private venue. • Plan for food during the day and night – Nearly as important, especially if your party goes all day and into the night. Even ordering pizzas to one of the venues can make sure some alcohol is soaked up so people are re-energised and ready to make the night great. • Look after the buck (kinda) – As the best man, it is your responsibility to make sure the buck gets home in one piece. So get him drunk, and make a fool of him, but don’t go overboard. If you can see he’s getting intoxicated quickly, sneak a few glasses of water into him, ensure he eats throughout the day and make sure he finishes the night with a dirty, greasy filled kebab. • Finally, pick fun activities for the bucks party guests – last but not least is the selection of suitable activities. A poker night with waitresses and professional female dealers is the perfect way to either start your night or as part of an exciting day. At Poker Deluxe we offer a range of bucks party packages, with something to suit everyone’s taste. We can even bring it all to you: the tables, chips, girls and more to create that casino buzz. Or we can help find the perfect venue for your bucks party. You can even have your bucks night in one of our associated strip clubs in Melbourne, Sydney or Adelaide, with free function room, topless dealers and sexy girls all around for the ultimate bucks party experience. You can choose from tame to raunchy and anywhere in between; Poker Deluxe has it all, with a range of exciting and entertaining bucks night party packages that can be tailored to suit your needs.
