Fun Groomsmen Activities the Guys Will Love

How do you say thank you to the guys who have been there for you thick or thin? Sometimes words just don’t seem like enough. You’ve been so busy with all the wedding planning and now it’s time to take a break and relax a little before the ceremony. Read on to find out 10 things you and your boys can do to get in a little fun before you tie the knot.

What better way to let off a little steam and enjoy some fun activities with your best friends? You want to let your groomsmen know that you appreciate their friendship and you’re glad they will be there to encourage you and give you support as you make an important life decision.

A Few Days Before the Wedding

These are a few fun things you and your guy friends can do a few days before the wedding. See the suggestions for weekend trips if your wedding comes after a long weekend.

1. Playing a Round of Golf
There is nothing better than spending the day chasing a little ball around on the golf course. If your friends are up for a game of golf grab your clubs and your membership card for a little healthy exercise and competition. The one with the lowest score buys the drinks at the pub afterward.

2. Playing a Game of Pool
Shooting pool has been a favorite activity of guys for a long time. If you are lucky enough to have your own pool table invite the guys over and stock up on some snacks and fill your beer cooler.

3. Going to A Wrestling Match
As a special treat, invite your friends to go to a wrestling match. Physical aggression can be a good thing sometimes, especially if you are not personally involved in it. Watching wrestling or mixed martial arts has long been a “guy thing.”

4. Watching Football
A game on the big screen TV, a bunch of snacks and cold beer and you have the makings of a guy party. Depending on the time of year, there is always a game on. Invite the guys over to your man cave and spend a day watching football.

5. Go-Kart Racing
This is an activity that lets you engage in a little healthy competition. Go-kart racing is fun and is a great way to enjoy an afternoon spent with your best buds. A few times around the track and then off for some pizza and hot wings.

Weekend Suggestions

6. Fishing Weekend 
Guys who love to fish but don’t get to do it very often will appreciate this one. Reserve a fishing boat and bring your tackle box and ice chest. The ice is for the fish you will catch since it’s not a good idea to drink while operating a boat. Keep the beer on ice back at your campsite and bring a separate cooler for the fish unless you will eat what you catch that day.

7. A Gambling Weekend in Vegas
Who can resist the call of slot machines and coins tumbling into a stainless steel tray? There are so many things to do in Vegas that you may find you run out of time before running out of activities. Play a few hands of Blackjack or wrestle the one-armed bandits and then take in the sights or go for some world-famous food at nearby restaurants. Everything is close to the strip so you don’t have to worry about hiring a taxi to get back to your hotel.


8. A Trip to the Barber for a Shave and Haircut
Everyone will want to look their best and a trip to the barber is just what you and the guys need to give you that extra polish. Plus, getting a shave is very relaxing since there is no worry about cutting yourself and having little bits of toilet tissue stuck to your face. A professional barber is a trained professional and will make sure you all look your best.

The Morning of the Wedding

9. A Guys Breakfast
A great way to start the day is with a huge manly breakfast of steak and eggs with your best friends. Treat your groomsmen to a breakfast buffet they will never forget. A good breakfast will give you all some fuel for the day and the experience will make memories that last a lifetime.

10. Hit the Gym for a Workout

For those that need that little push of energy in the morning, a gym workout may be just the thing you need to get you energized for the day. Lift some weights, swim a few laps, and then hit the showers. You might want to do this one before breakfast to work up an appetite.

Roundup
Most likely, your groomsmen will all know each other but if not, be sure to plan activities that everyone will enjoy and can participate in. This is a chance for your buds to bond with each other and it’s important that they have fun doing it.

What do you think of these ideas? Do you agree that groomsmen should have bonding time just like the bridesmaids? Did you try any of these suggestions, and how did they work for you? Let us know in the comments below. Check out our other posts for more wedding ideas and decorating suggestions.
