Default Bachelor Party Cost?

What's the typical bachelor party cost per person these days?

I'm the best man for a friend's wedding in October, and we're doing an RV trip in August. I'm estimating that the cost for each person (about 10 people) is $150-$175 which includes the RV rental, campsite, fuel, firewood, food, beer, and any other supplies.

Does this sound reasonable?

Yep that's pretty cheap for what you describe. Even a cheap weekend up north like several I've been to recently(mine included) often costs more than that.

I just did an RV bach party for a buddy.
We had 9
Rented an RV
Insurance
Fuel
Tickets to the Kentucky Derby ($40 each)
RV parking for the weekend at the Derby (this was $600).

It came out to about $275 per person.

We drove 1000 miles. We got about 9 MPG.

The cost is different depending on who the person is at the bachelor party. If it is the groom, it should cost him nothing on that day, but it will cost him dearly for the rest of his life, or possibly $75,000-ish immediately at some point. Its a 50 / 50 ending.










































I am sorry, I have never been married, just ignore me.

I think that's very reasonable. One I went to last year was about $300 and including splitting a rental house on a lake, renting a pontoon boat and a speedboat for a day, food, and beer.

We rented a part bus and went to bars. 20 some people @ 50 bucks paid for the bus, a couple coolers of pre-game booze and some big subs from subway. My best man ended the event with around 5,000 out of pocket, and nothing was broke.

Very reasonable... I'd plan more for the 200-250 range.

Sounds pretty reasonable to me. I think we were each in for about $250 at my buddy's party a couple years ago. For mine I don't think anyone was in for much more than $100.

It really depends on how many strippers will be in the RV.

Sounds close. If you are getting strippers be careful as they love to double dip on the card you use to reserve it. If u need supplies, let me know I can help. Now is the busy time of the year for bachelor and bachelorette parties for me.

PLEASE confirm that you are pimp, and the girls, or "talent" are the supplies you are referring to.

I'm planing one in Vegas in January. My groom is paying for his flight/room. After that its all us. I'm hoping more go so the cost stays low. So far we know zip lines and go carts are happening. He'd be fine with some footballs in old Vegas. We looked at strippers in the room as opposed to at a bar. Looks cheaper.

Yup.

On one party I attended, the groom and best man spent over $400 each on toothless crackhead hookers in Windsor, so it can get pricy.

Hookers. Cheaper and more reliable!



The right hookers that is. Like dancers. They're all hookers nowadays.
