Start with these ideas for a bachelor party theme to find the ideal thread that’ll string the entire party together!
Sports Lover Bachelor Party Themes
Score big points with a sports-themed soiree for the groom-to-be who appreciates all things athletic.
Whether he’s a fan, a player, or both, a particular team or type of sport makes for a fun focus. All of the guests can get involved in a party that turns everyone into players.
Plan a full day of competition or make it a full weekend of fun:
A golf party lets the groom unwind before the big event. For this theme, you’ll need good weather, a great course, golf clubs, and a confirmed tee time.
Throw on the camo and head out for a hunting trip, whether it’s just for the day or a weekend. The groom gets to clear his head and enjoy the outdoors with his best buds.
Organize a touch football game for the guys. Then take the party back to someone’s house where it can be decked out in décor from the groom’s favorite football team.
Themes for the Liquor Pig Types
For guys who like to throw a few drinks back with their buddies, an alcohol themed adventure is the way to go.
It can be a classy affair or a night of naughty debauchery at the bar:
Beer Garden Bash
Head out to a local watering hole with an outdoor area or transform an ordinary yard into an amazing beer garden. Lager lovers will appreciate the variety of brews to imbibe paired with snackable food options. The open-air setting keeps things casual, yet still classy.
Pub Crawl Party
Take the party out on the town with a pub crawl. Choose a location with multiple destinations that the group can easily walk to. The benefit of bar hopping is that no one gets bored as you stop in different places for a drink.
Drinks, dancing, and meeting beautiful women are the order of the evening with a clubbing celebration. Book a party bus or hire a limo to take the crew around to hot clubs. Stay at one spot for a few hours or club hop to experience different places.
XXX Future Wife Probably Won’t Approve Themes
Give the groom-to-be one last wild night out with an adults-only celebration. While the future wife may not approve, an XXX themed event lets guys cut loose for a final time before married life takes over. Be sure to have a stack of single bills handy for one of these bad boy bachelor party themes:
Strip Club Soiree
It may be a cliché, but that’s because it’s truly a classic stag night theme. Gather the group together in a party bus or limo for pregame action before heading into the strip club. While everyone can enjoy the scenery, pay special attention to the groom. Don’t let him leave without a private dance from one of the lovely ladies.
Girls Gone Wild (hire private strippers)
Bring the girls gone wild action to the groom by hiring private strippers to perform for the party. It pairs well with a casual night in. It’s an ideal option for groups with underage guests who can’t get into a bar or club.

Destination Bachelor Parties
Let the location be your guide to planning a great party! If travel is on the agenda, or if you just wish that it were, choose one of these destination themes to center the celebration on:
Viva Las Vegas
Nothing beats the real thing – if the groom wants to hit up Vegas, perhaps consider it?! But, if you can’t hit the strip, you can still throw a Vegas themed party at home. All you need are some casino games, glitz, and good food and drinks.
Head north and explore your inner lumberjack with a Canadian theme.
Cottage Chill Out
Whether by a lake, in the woods, or near the sea, a cottage is an excellent place to chill out. Whisk the groom away for a retreat with few days of relaxation and good company.
Hit the Slopes Chalet

Grab the glitter, gold, and bead necklaces and make it a festive night out with a Mardi Gras theme. Everyone will be excited to celebrate, so plan on a parade of fun times.
Beach House Blowout
Escape to the beach with the groom and his closest group of friends and family. Ask around to see if anyone has a beach house to use, or find an affordable rental. Pack up the swimwear and sunscreen for a few days of sun, sand, and celebration.

Alcohol and adult themes most certainly aren’t required for an amazing bachelor party. There’s plenty of exciting ways to send the groom off in style without getting drunk or dirty. Keep it clean with a sleaze-free or Christian focused event:
Gather the guys together to share marriage advice, insight, and scripture. Offer blessings for the happy couple’s marriage and share a prayer for their continued happiness.
Let the groom know that he’s a great catch with a festive fishing trip. Charter a boat or head out to the closest river or lake for an afternoon of camaraderie and casting lines.
Steak Dinner Soiree
Throw a party that’s tasty and tasteful, not tasteless! Make reservations for your group at a classy steakhouse for an elegant evening.
Golf Day Gathering
Hit a hole in one with a relaxing golf day. The groom gets to unwind on the greens with his best buddies.
Pick-Up Game Party
Plan a pick-up game for the guys and head to the courts. It’s easy to organize and a fun way to spend time with the boys while enjoying a casual competition.
