Keep reading for our list of 5 ideas for a bachelor party on a budget.

  1. Game Night

Game night with the guys is a perfect way to celebrate your upcoming nuptials on the cheap. If it was good enough for Ben Wyatt on Parks and Rec, it’s good enough for you. Right?

Get together your best buds, some great brews, and your favorite games. Order a few pizzas and pop open a couple of bags of chips for an instant party.

Game night doesn’t have to be limited to just board games. Set up a friendly poker match. Or buy a couple of extra controllers for the ultimate video game night.

  1. Camping Trip

A camping trip is one of the best stag party ideas. What could be more fun than some quality time with your best buds in the great outdoors?

Go for a hike together. Or rent a canoe and take a spin around the lake. You can also just hang out at the campsite, play cards and enjoy each other’s company.

The best part? No cell service means the wedding planning is on pause…at least for a little bit.

  1. Laser Tag

Laser tag is an awesome way to feel like a kid again before you make a giant grown-up step into marriage. 

You can rent out the entire laser tag arena for a couple of hours.  Split into teams, and the losers buy the winners a round of drinks.

Plus most laser tag centers also have arcade games and drinks. So you can continue the party long after you turn in your gun.

  1. Karaoke Night

Serenade your groomsmen at a wild karaoke night. Who cares if you can’t sing? After a few drinks, you’ll think you sound like a pro!

If you or your friends are a bit shy, consider renting a private karaoke space. There are tons of karaoke clubs that offer private rooms for parties. That way you can sing off-key to your heart’s content!

  1. Comedy Club and Cocktails

Plan a tour of your local brewery or distillery. See how your favorite adult beverages are created, and sample some fresh brews along the way.

After you’re feeling nice and toasty, head over to a local comedy club for a roaring good time. Stand up is so much funnier after a few drinks. That’s why most comedy clubs have a two-drink minimum.

If your group is particularly adventurous, check out an open mic night! Maybe the groom always wanted to give stand-up a shot, here’s his chance. Besides, what better place for the groomsmen to practice their speeches before the wedding?
