Instead, have a combined bachelors party. And you don’t have to invite only your girlfriends, your guest list can include all the common friends between yours to-be and you, provided your motto for the night is to ‘have fun’ and get to know each other’s friends. You can plan a bachelor get away with all the friends involved and make it a trip to remember!

This novel idea has been around since some time, but this concept really took off after Farhan Akhtar and Shibhani Dandekar planned a private movie night for all their friends. This night sounds perfect if your girlfriends and you have had countless sleepovers where you’ve binge-watched movies and discussed boys growing up.
4. Match Point

A little more serene but an amusing idea. Hire a professional painter who can teach the party some basic brush strokes. Spend the day casually amongst your loved ones while attempting a piece of art. Keep it outdoors in a garden or by a lake. Later lunch can be served al fresco.
7. Disco Night

We all love the carnival, yeah? Have your guests put out games and food stalls. Let your guests equip themselves with vibrant carnivalesque festoons. For the sake of fun, you can also add trampoline and jumpalenos too.
So karaoke became too common but we still love to sing. Arrange for all possible musical instruments. Dhols, tambourines, flutes, tablas even thalis and spoons. Let each guest have one instrument. Now have a ganaa session of all your favourite songs while making your own music.
10. Go Sailing
