How To Plan An Epic Montreal Bachelor Party

Let’s be honest… Planning a bachelor party can turn into a huge headache that no Advil can relieve. From dealing with different personalities to choosing the right activities, you can quickly get overwhelmed by the amount of things you need to take into account. Throw in the fact that you want the bachelor party to be in a city in a different country where you don’t speak the local language. While we understand that planning a Montreal bachelor party can seem overwhelming, if you follow a few easy steps, you’ll seamlessly plan an epic weekend full of booze and strippers.

Here’s 5 ways to make your bachelor party planning a bit easier:

Talk To The Groom   

This should be a no brainer, but you’d be surprised how many bachelor parties come to town without first consulting the guest of honor. Find out what he wants and doesn’t want out of the weekend. However, we highly recommend throwing in a surprise or two for the bachelor to keep the weekend interesting (Getting woken up with a lap dance is a great example). At the end of the day, the weekend should be about the bachelor, but we all know the other degenerates on the trip will have more fun.

Planning Bachelor Party

Send Out Invites

This may be the most important part of planning an epic bachelor party. The social dynamic of the group is critical. Some guys are loose cannons, other have a stick up their asses. The ideal group size is 10 and everyone should have a personal connection to the bachelor except for that one rich friend no has talked to since college, but pays for everything…Regardless, whatever you do, don’t invite the soon to be father-in-law. Some things need to be kept secret.

Head Count

Once you have invites go out, you need to figure out who is actually coming to Montreal. Planning for a 25 man bachelor party is much different than 4 guys. The earlier you know the head count, the better. This number usually changes as the weekend gets closer and wives read about Montreal’s “friendly” locals.

Bachelor Party Planning

Determine A Budget

A huge factor in choosing the right activities for your bachelor party group is finding a budget. We recommend determining what the sweet spot is for your group. It’s important to find a budget that doesn’t price some guys out of the weekend, while some of the big ballers don’t feel that everyone is being cheap. Ask early on in the process to find out what everyone wants to do. If you are the one in charge of the budget, you get to be a dictator. You can choose activities that you want to do, while pitching it as something that is for the good of the group. See how to do this? You’re welcome.

The Pros And Cons Of Throwing The Bachelor On Stage

If you come to Montreal on a bachelor party, stopping at a strip club is a necessary adventure. It’s fun for the whole group and you might even call it a bonding experience. There’s nothing quite like getting a lap dance from the same stripper and comparing notes with your buddy…Regardless, putting the bachelor on stage at the strip club and having various strippers humiliate him is always an option. It’s a great choice for some bachelor parties, while for others it could ruin the night. Here’s the pros and cons of throwing the bachelor on stage for a strip club show:

Strip Club Show

Pros:

It’s A Good Time

We all know that a bachelor party is never about the bachelor himself, but rather about the other guys on the trip. Seeing the bachelor get degraded and spanked on stage is hilarious to see for the rest of the guys. It’s always great for groups that like a bit more attention from the strippers or don’t take themselves too seriously.

Some Bachelors Enjoy The Attention

While we do offer a dominatrix show, this is the next best thing for those bachelors that are secretly masochists and like to be roughed up a bit. Who knows maybe they’ll discover something new about themselves…You can thank us later. There are bachelors that like to be the star of the show and this is the best way to get all of the attention in the strip club.

Memorable Send Off

Putting the bachelor on stage is certainly a memorable experience to say bye to his single years. He won’t forget his time on stage and it will give you some fond memories to reminisce about until his divorce party in 5 years.

Strip Club Show

Cons:

Unwanted Surprise

Anytime you throw the bachelor on stage, it’s a surprise (or just get him drunk enough..) Either way, it’s a bold move that could backfire tremendously. The bachelor may feel uncomfortable, but in our opinion, that’s the point of the bachelor party. He may not talk to you for the rest of the weekend, but that’s what true friends are for.

Wife’s Pissed

Whatever you do, make sure there is no evidence of the show if his fiancé is crazy. We’ve had a few women call us up about their man’s bachelor party and we tell them they have nothing to worry about…If there is evidence, you guys better have your stories straight. The pictures last a little longer than that handprint on the bachelor’s ass.

Tacky

Sure, we get it…Throwing the bachelor on stage is tacky, but that’s why we love it. It’s one of those traditional bachelor party activities that just completes the weekend. Besides, you’re not from Montreal, so tell the strippers you’re a porn star and make a fool of yourself. If you guys are all tightwads, take 30 minutes just to put gel in your hair, and enjoy staring at each other than putting the bachelor on stage is not for you. Otherwise, get ready for a good laugh.

Top  VIP Service Scams in Montreal

Rod and I both have hosted more bachelor parties than anyone in Montreal. We have also worked for other so-called “VIP services” and have seen every trick and scam out there. Know what to expect by learning the  biggest Montreal VIP service scams.

 Special Grade Packages

pictureWe may get death threats over this one but… be wary of anyone selling different grades of service from “Elite VIP”, Platinum Exclusive, to Princess-Cut packages. Whatever the name, they are all BS and offer the exact same service just have twice (sometimes 3-4 times) the mark-up. All the features and services are just given jazzed up names, unless they can tell you exactly what is the difference between “Premium VIP Entry” and “VIP Entry”. All you are doing is bidding against yourself. You might as well have them throw in free rust-proofing for you.

I know what you are thinking, “but wait, you guys sell three different levels of bachelor party packages too!?!” Yes, but all of our packages are starting points as everything we do is custom. The difference in price represents the number of bottles and add-ons, such as a private show at your hotel.

 Guarantees or Licenses

This is a recent, but classic scam. Truth is, the guarantee is pretty much worthless. Why else would they have 4 pages of legal behind it? As for the “we are the only licensed operator”, the “license” they are boasting allows them to sell services to Quebec residents. Unless you really think that there’s a bachelor party licensing board. You need to look at what’s being represented. There is a reason the other companies hide their faces, prices, and other basic information.

 

 VIP to Multiple Night Clubs

pictureNo good nightclub will let large groups of guys (from out of town) into their club without buying bottles. Anyone who has been clubbing in any metropolitan area knows this. So, “VIP to multiple nightclubs” is a blatant lie. We get it right the first time. What is often done is you are told you will be setup at multiple nightclubs and when you want to switch it up you will be told how many extra bottles you will need to buy. This is not a fun situation when you have a drunken pack of guys. While we will have multiple backup options, don’t club hop unless you need to. Club hopping is a terrible idea.

Using the Term VIP for Anything

picture As we have outlined in previous posts, VIP is one of the biggest inside jokes in the Montreal nightlife scene. There are countless providers offering VIP passes for people to go wait in a VIP line that is usually longer than the regular line. In fact, no decent club in Montreal has a VIP room: bottle service and tables aren’t segregated to special rooms/sections. Montreal strip clubs are the only exception, which offer VIP couches.

Honestly, how “VIP” are you if you also plan bachelorette parties, corporate events, spring break trips and romantic getaways. We only do packages for men. If you are calling yourself a VIP, you are calling attention to the fact that you are not a VIP. With Connected Montreal, you receive the highest level of service. We are the most experienced and trusted bachelor party planners in the game. That’s why we proudly display our ugly mugs!  Make sure you don’t get fooled planning your weekend with the guys and contact us at 1.877.690.4919.
