Bucks Night Party Planning Step 1: Party Ideas
Bucks Night, Bachelor Party, Stag Do... whatever you're calling it, the first step in planning is to think of relevant party themes. The obvious bucks' night ideas involve alcohol in a plentiful supply! Think of traditional bucks party ideas like a pub crawl; just invite a bunch of mates to meet at a local pub and drink your way from one establishment to the next! If that sounds too complicated and you're lucky enough to be hosting a Bucks Party in Sydney, you can actually take part in an organized pub crawl tour! You'll still need some of our Bucks party games before and after the tour, so make sure to get a couple of items from our suggestions of Bucks Party games while you're here!
Other ideas for Bucks Party themes include taking the guys to a shooting range (Melbourne has one), a day of paintballing, Bucks party on the Gold Coast, kayaking, camping weekend, fishing trip, casino weekend, rafting adventure, or stay at home and drink 'til things get crazy!
Now that you have some inspiration for a theme, you're ready for Step 2 in the Bucks Night ideas!
Bucks Night Step 2: Guest List
This one sounds easy, but put some thought into the guest list to ensure your Bucks party in Melbourne doesn't require casual acquaintances or old-school friends to travel halfway across the country! Also make sure the invited guests are likely to be comfortable with the planned festivities, for example: don't invite the vicar to a pub crawl and maybe skip the groom's grandpa for a party at a shooting range in Brisbane!

Our suggestions range from classy barware to novelty gag gifts, so you can choose something that fits the groom's personality or style.

Tips for Bucks Night!
You don't want to be a party pooper with a bunch of rules, but if you're the best man looking for tips for a mate's bucks night celebration, keep in mind a few suggestions in order to organize a bucks night that is both safe and will be forever remembered as a "legendary" bachelor party. First tip: fun and frivolity = good; alcohol poisoning or ending up in jail = bad! Tip two: pace yourself! It can't count as legendary if everyone passes out drunk at 9.30 pm! Tip three: whatever you do, DO NOT schedule the Bucks Night for the day before the wedding! Depending on the level of debauchery you're planning, you'll need a couple of days to recover, so to be on the safe side chose a date at least a week before the wedding.
The big night has arrived where you sign off your mate to a future of marriage. But don't spend your days wallowing in grief, get planning the bachelor party of a lifetime to bid him good luck!
