Popping out of a giant cake in a blingy bridal bikini at your guy's bachelor party is one thing (may we strongly suggest you don't do this), but sending him a sweet surprise that'll only enhance his night and make all his boys think you're like, the best fiancé ever? Now, that's something we can totally get on board with. Whether your man is headed to the Big Apple or Sin City, you're sure to impress him with one of these five fun and flirty surprises, courtesy of Joanne Barken, founder of The Bach.
1. A New York City Bachelor Party
If there's one way to a man's heart, it's definitely through his stomach! "While you don't want to micromanage your groom's bachelor party plans, sending him a fun surprise while he's away with his boys is a sweet way to let him know you care," says Barken. For Big Apple-partygoers, there's nothing quite like bagels and coffee to nurse a bad hangover the morning after. Barken suggests surprising the guys and ordering them a delivery of bagels, cream cheese, lox and coffee after their big night out. Check the hotel menu too, as any and all morning munchies (no matter what they are) are bound to be appreciated.
2. An Outdoorsy Bachelor Party
If your groom is off to the wilderness for a few days with his buddies, Barken recommends baking a batch of his favorite cookies or sweet treats for him to share with the guys around the campfire. Stash them in his bag or car last minute, along with a cute note addressed to everyone. "If you're a bit challenged in the kitchen, just mix up some tasty trail mix for them to munch on while hiking," Barken adds.
3. A Miami Bachelor Party
If the boys are Miami bound, you can pretty much guess how they'll be spending a majority of their time: hitting up clubs and fist pumping at pool parties. "Surprise them with a bottle of the groom's favorite liquor to help them keep the celebration going," offers Barken. Or, you know, get the party started in the first place.
4. An Austin or Nashville Bachelor Party
The live music-loving groom will appreciate all of the performances he can squeeze into a guys' weekend (and then some!), points out Barken. "Find a local musician in the area and coordinate with the best man to have the artist join them for a jam session while they pregame." Bonus points if it's someone your guy really digs.
5. A Las Vegas Bachelor Party
No bachelor party in Vegas is complete without a suite! Barken advises calling ahead and upgrading your groom's hotel room to an awesome suite. "Just have the hotel put the difference on your credit card. Both him and his friends will love having a cool spot to pregame at," she says.
