Destination Bachelor Party and Bachelorette Party: Los Angeles

If you want to a taste of all-American culture, then head to Los Angeles.  It is the entertainment capital of the world, the streets of Hollywood often feel like a reality show. This diverse city has restaurants for the adventurous palate, the hottest clubs and eclectic beach cities.

When hosting a bachelor party or bachelorette party in Los Angeles you always have to take into consideration the traffic, so leave plenty of time if you are going from one activity to another.  We recommend getting a limo or party bus, so you can relax and have a few drinks (optional) while someone else takes care of parking and navigating the traffic. Limo drivers are also great at recommending local activities and flavors.

When we look for new locations for our parties we take a few things into account.

  • Transportation - is it easy to get around in Los Angeles? Public Transportation?
  • Proximity – Is everything ie. bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, etc close to each other? Are there some cool daytime excursions close to the area for the bachelorette party?
  • Saturation - Does the area have a strong selection of clubs, restaurants, bars, lodging etc?
  • Safety – Would a group feel comfortable wandering around the streets at 2 in the morning?

In Los Angeles a Bachelor Party can go clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, or indoor sky-diving before hitting the clubs, while the Bachelorette Party can sample Champagnes, cook a gourmet 3 course dinner or simply relax in a spa.  You will not be disappointed by the sights and sounds in Los Angeles.

Bachelorette Party Quick Tip – Choosing your Guest List

chocolateMaking_01

Guest List

Always consult the bride when deciding the guest list. She knows best when it comes to mixing work friends with childhood friends, and family with friends. Nothing would be worse that to have someone she didn’t want come to the party. Another thing to consider is the party activities and whether the people you’re inviting are a good choice for that. Chocolate making might not be good for the bride’s diabetic mother.

    Bachelor Party Tip of the Day – #1 – The Guest List

    The secret of a good event is to plan ahead. We know that planning is kryptonite to most guys, so FireFly is here to help you and ensure there are no hiccups along the way!  Look out for different tips and tricks to help you plan a smooth event.

    The Guest List: Take the time to sit down with the Groom and hash out the guest list. You can’t blindly invite the world to the bachelor party. In the end, this party is for him and he knows who should make the list.  It’s also important to consider the activity you’ve chosen when deciding who to invite.  Whitewater rafting might not be good for Uncle Joe who lost both arms in a wood chipper, while beer tasting would be a bad idea for Cousin Sal (everyone remembers the last time you gave Him alcohol).  In fact,  Cousin Sal should probably not get invited to the wedding. Sorry Cousin Sal. It’s a balancing act, whoever you invite, between who’s going and what’s going on. We’ve seen guys who’ve had multiple parties to deal with different groups. Be aware but don’t take it too seriously.

    Anyone out there  ever had to deal with a bachelor party guest gone wrong?
