You've finally found "the one," the wedding is planned and the big day is approaching, now it is time to head out one last time as a single man and enjoy a night out with all of your best friends. If you're looking to earn a little extra cash, there are a few creative ways for you to make money at your bachelor party.
If you're looking to make money at your bachelor party, try playing poker with the rest of the bachelors. Sure, it's a gamble, but depending on the amount of people playing and the amount of money each person is playing with, your winnings could be substantial.
In order to ensure the bachelor makes money, tell everyone ahead of time that he automatically gets 20 percent of the winnings. So, whoever wins the game takes home 80 percent of the winnings and the bachelor gets 20 percent.
Bachelor and bachelorette parties are famous for their scavenger hunts. Scavenger hunts are usually created by the party guests and the bachelor has all night to cross off as many items of his list as he can. If the goal is to make money at the party, add a few money-making items to the scavenger hunt list. For example, "Get $1 from a blonde and a brunette and $5 from a red-headed woman." The bachelor could also be responsible for selling items as part of his scavenger hunt. He could sell suckers for a dollar, condoms for a dollar or even kisses for a dollar.
Horse Track or Dog Track
Both horse and dog tracks are fun places to host bachelor parties. Have each guest pitch in a few dollars that the bachelor can use to place bets and agree that he gets to keep any of his winnings. In addition, you can make a deal ahead of time that the bachelor gets to keep 10 percent of the combined winnings from the rest of the guests.
