When To Have a Bachelor Party

Updated for 2023

Bachelor parties are an exciting event. They signal the end of the single life and the beginning of the rest of your life. Because of this, your bachelor party should be an exciting, unmissable celebration. That said, when is the best time to make this exciting event happen? At Shots, we specialize in being one of the best bachelor party ideas so we know the perfect time for you to have your party. 

When is Too Soon vs Too Late to Have a Bachelor Party

The timing for your bachelor party needs to be just right to maximize the fun that you can have with your friends. Imagine having a bachelor party right after your engagement; no one would have time to plan so you may be limited in the places you could have your party, and your friends may not have the time to prepare or RSVP. With bachelor parties, it’s always a good idea to give everybody in the bachelor party group at least one or two months to make time for your special night. 

However, having your bachelor party too close to the wedding is not ideal either. Why? This is because the people who are coming to your wedding typically have to take time off to focus on this important day. They have set aside money, time, and resources to make sure they are prepared for your wedding day. The last thing that you want in these circumstances is to add another event they have to worry about on top of it. You want to make sure that the bachelor party is separated enough from the wedding that you and your friends can celebrate without being stressed about being ready for the wedding. 

This is especially true for bachelor parties that take place the day before the wedding. Having these events so close together is just asking for additional stress on your plate. After all, the day leading up to your wedding is filled with last-minute details and issues that you have to focus on, which means you won’t be able to relax and enjoy your bachelor party. 

So, When do You Have a Bachelor Party?

When is the perfect time to host your bachelor party then? Given all that goes into planning a wedding, you want to make sure that you give yourself enough time to plan a fantastic bachelor party. If you plan on having your bachelor party about one month to four months before the date of your wedding, you will be sure to have an amazing time. 

Giving yourself months between your bachelor party and your wedding day isn’t just practical for your guests–who will have more time and funds to devote to each celebration–but it is also practical for you. You can enjoy yourself without blowing all the cash you might be setting aside for the honeymoon, and you give yourself a milestone to look forward to near the end of your engagement.
