Like any vacation you need to plan ahead and having a small cushion in terms of budget is key to avoiding disasters. Your bachelor party is no different and planning every step of the way will help make it clear how much money you need to save up and how much extra cash you need to bring.
KEEP YOUR POCKETS ALWAYS FULL
Going over budget is never the goal, but it happens often. When that happens, you can expect your guest to get upset or even withhold paying out more. Creating a smart financial plan and then sharing it with your bachelor party will not only make you look smart, the whole crew will know what to expect.
Besides you want to focus on having fun with a stripper instead of doing accounting and crunching numbers.
TIP 1 DETERMINE TOTAL BUDGET
Work backwards and give yourself a grand total budget of how much you want to spend on activities and events. Add on an emergency reserve in case things get out of hand. From here you can begin deducting your key expenses like flights and hotels.
TIP 2 ALWAYS ROUND UP
The simple trick of rounding your estimated numbers up instantly creates small cushions of money that come in handy in sticky situations.
Rounding down your estimates will only lead to a risk of running out of funds. If you’re lucky and your expenses over the weekend turn out to be cheaper than you thought, you always win.
Mo Money, Mo Strippers!
TIP 3 LOOK UP LOCAL PRICES
Wherever you travel to, prices will vary! Automatically expecting things to cost the same amount in every city you visit is simply idiotic. Just the exchange rate of currency creates natural differences in the price of goods and services.
Montreal won’t have the same high prices as Monaco, but it won’t have lower prices like partying in Bangkok. Do some market research so you can make smart budget decisions.

TIP 4 SMALL EXPENSES ADD UP DON’T IGNORE THEM
It is very easy to forget the small stuff when planning your budget. We tend to focus on the big stuff like flight expenses, hotel stays and resto costs. We quickly forget how those Uber rides quickly add up over a weekend. Don’t forget to include how many lap dances you think you could handle.
In Montreal Lap dances start at twenty bucks a pop, your budget will get chewed up if you’re not careful. So, make sure to add intercity travel, lap dances and even tipping in your budget plans!
TIP 5 DON’T MAKE SCROOGE LOOK LIKE A BIG SPENDER
This is a bachelor party and trying to shave a nickel off every transaction isn’t the way to go. Your budget should be a strong guideline and not a brutal dictator over your plans. Life experiences will go a long way and will always be remembered. The budget spent to create them is easily forgotten. Make sure to spend a little more on what matters to you or your bachelor party most.
Get the quality you deserve, and no one will ever complain. If you go cheaper for some activities and the activity sucks, you will get it both ways! Blasted for the waste of money and for the shitty activity. Besides you don’t work so hard so you can bring all your savings with you six feet under!
Don’t have an ordinary bachelor party and have an epic one!
TIP 6 COMMUNICATE
In all cases planning your own personal budget is way easier than planning for a group. Your friends have different income levels and opinions on how to spend their money. It will be difficult but if you keep communication open and honest you can work something out that will please everyone.
If there is a high roller in your team no one should feel pressured to spend more to match him. Set the budget and if he wants to spend more it’s on him and no one else. The low rollers don’t need to feel obliged and everyone will have fun regardless.
It is a bachelor party not an accountant’s conference!
