How to: Plan a Last Minute Bucks Party
25 Jun 2019
You’ve been chosen to plan the ultimate bucks party for your mate, but life got in the way as it does and now he’s chasing you up about it, asking when this stag party is actually going to happen. It's become a last minute bucks party. But just because you’ve left it last minute, that doesn’t mean your only option left is getting hammered and then heading to a strip club. Here at Ivy Models, we want to help you organise the best bucks you can, even if you’ve left it to the day before. So, we've set out four simple steps for you to get this last minute bucks party together ASAP.
We've also created some other tips on planning a bucks party that you should also read.
Step 1: Set a Date
Before you start organising anything, you need to know what date the bucks party is happening. By setting the date, you're committed. There's no excuses now, it's got to happen. So, get the boys around for a few beers ASAP and set a date. Or just send a group message, but why not make up another excuse to have a few with the boys?
Step 2: Ask the Buck What He Wants
Yes, usually this is step 2 of planning a bucks party, but if you’ve left it to last minute maybe don’t let your buck know you haven’t got anything sorted yet. However, if you haven’t left it too late, definitely ask the main man if there’s anything in particular he wants included in his bucks.
Some stags expect the Hollywood style bucks party with all the works, whereas others would rather have an action and adventure packed event. Or maybe a mix of both? It’s better to be safe than sorry, and make sure the main man is going to have the bucks party he won't forget. If everything goes according to plan from the wedding onwards, this might be the only bucks party he’s ever going to get. So, make sure it’s not a letdown just because you’re short on time.
Step 3: Start Planning and Booking
We're keeping in mind your lack of time to plan, so we're going to give you a little suggestion to take away all of your stress from this moment forward.
Since you're stretched for time, keep it simple. We recommend planning one daytime event, and one night. Don't try and do some grand tour. Pick a location, an activity for the day and a venue for the evening. It will run smoothly keeping it simple and you won't be stressing trying to herd a bunch of cats around.

- Food & Drinks – Get more alcohol than you think you’ll need, this is going to be a big one. And why not book an awesome dinner somewhere? No boys are too good for a top-quality feed.
- Entertainment – Yes you could go to strip club by the end of the night, but that’s a little been there done that isn’t it? Book your own entertainment with us at Ivy Models and have a topless waitress serve you drinks and even give you all a show before you head out for the night.
