Weddings are a time for new chapters – when people come together, celebrate the simple joy of being with the people that matter most and get ultra-creative on the dancefloor. Come to think of it, weddings are rather like New Year’s Eve? Both events mark the start of something new, while still prompting everyone to reflect on the moments and experiences leading up to that time.
In the spirit of all things good, why not combine both into one epic celebration? Overwhelmed by the excitement of releasing this new possibility, we caught up with our friends at Wicked Bucks to discuss exactly what would be involved and how we could bring this to life.
As usual, the Wicked Bucks team was absolutely overflowing with ideas, tips and tricks to help us. In fact, they even put together a handy guide that outlines exactly what you need to know to ensure your New Year’s Bucks Party is absolutely unforgettable. With these simple 4 steps, you’re on your way to organising a party that will go down in history as one to remember.
Being the most popular time of year to travel, it’s important to get in early to secure the perfect accommodation for you and the crew. According to the Wicked crew, the two biggest considerations when booking somewhere is to consider location and facilities.
Location is particularly important when it comes to a New Year’s Bucks Party as you’ll want to be close enough to the action that you can easily reach everything, yet far enough away that you can still enjoy some peace and quiet if you need to recharge your batteries.
Knowing what facilities you need for your New Year’s Bucks Party really comes down to how many people you’re inviting on the trip and how you’re planning on using the accommodation. If you’ve got a big group and the intention is to have a house party, you’ll want to splurge a little to get a place that comes with all the facilities for a super comfortable stay. We’re talking about a full-kitchen, spacious living area, generous balcony and the added niceties of a pool or spa.
If you’re planning on spending most of your time at parties and exploring the region, you may want to consider going for something with a few less facilities to ensure you’ve got some extra cash to throw around during the day. If you are opting for something a little more simple, just ensure that you’ve got enough facilities to keep everyone in the group super comfortable.
No matter where you choose to celebrate your bucks party over New Years, there is really no shortage of activities, attractions and events on offer. In fact, it’s probably the busiest time of year in most people’s social lives! Just like accommodation, it’s important to consider exactly what everyone in the group is comfortable doing and then find something that ticks everyone’s boxes.
But in saying that, the most important person to keep happy is obviously the groom to be! When it comes to showing him just how much he means to you, some of the top activity suggestions from Wicked Bucks included a private adult show, in-room poker tournaments, a boat party, or a pub crawl. Remember to keep in mind that many venues will host private events on New Year’s so you’ll need to get prepared by booking tickets ahead of time. If you’d like any information about the hottest, must-visit events in your destination of choice, feel free to reach out to the Wicked Bucks team for more information.
While bucks’ parties are go, go, go nearly all the time, it’s important to have some down time scheduled in order to ensure you can recharge your batteries and keep up the pace for the entire trip. The nature of heading away for New Year’s Eve is that there’s likely to be plenty of big nights, limited sleep and late-night antics. While it’s all well and good at the time, it’s all too easy to run out of steam before you know what’s even happening.
The simplest and most enjoyable way to keep going is to find time to relax and just enjoy the simple beauty of being in each other’s company. For some, that may mean booking in a slower paced activity such as a boat cruise or just leaving an afternoon unscheduled and allowing the partygoers to make up their own minds about how to spend their time. Another great tip is not to schedule anything too early in the morning. Even if you’re an early riser, it’s likely that you’ll be greeted with a few sore heads wanting to sleep off the night before.
A Bucks Party on New Year’s is really a once in a lifetime experience for your buddy. He’s not only celebrating the fact that he will have a beautiful partner by his side for the rest of his life, but he’s also making a toast to the people that helped him get to where he is in life right now – aka you!
To show him just how much you’ve enjoyed the ride so far and how much he means to you all, don’t be afraid to splurge a little and shower him in the attention that he secretly wants. When you add New Year’s into the mix, the options to celebrate your buddy are really endless so be sure to do your research and organise a line-up that will go down in history as a celebration to remember.
When it comes time to plan a buck’s party, whether it’s for yourself or your buddy, be sure to reach out to the Wicked Bucks team. These professional party planners have a stack of experience in the space and know exactly what it takes to plan the ultimate party.
Adrenaline-junkies listen up. We’ve got just the thing for you. Test your stealth, aim and courage with a ‘friendly’ game of paintball with your buddies – because let’s admit it, we all feel like belting our mates with a paintball or two, every now or then. It’s all in good nature, of course.
While paintballing is often rolled out as the go-to team bonding activity in plenty of corporate workplaces, it’s far a far cry from many of the group morale exercises you’ve probably come across in the past. In fact, we’d go as far as to say it’s one of our favourite pastimes.
And it looks like we’re not alone in our thinking either. We recently caught up with our good friends over at Wicked Bucks, who’ve organised more bucks’ parties than we’ve had cooked dinners. Over the years, they’ve put together celebrations for dudes from all walks of life and they’ve picked up plenty of tips and tricks to ensure every party goes down in history as a time to remember – for all the right reasons.
Through every party they’ve put together, bucks paintballing in Sydney has always been an absolute crowd favourite. Equal parts fun and painful, these sessions are the best way for guys to put their computer gaming skills to the test as they duck, weave, defend and attack opponents in a realistic feeling battlefield. For anyone heading to Sydney for their buck’s getaway, the Wicked Bucks team has found the perfect place. This site is the real deal, and comes with all the equipment, accessories and extras needed for players to put their best foot forward.
Having got you packing your bags and booking your ticket already? The team has gone ahead and put together their top five reasons why you should lock in paintballing for your buck day. If these excuses aren’t enough to get you over the line, we’re not quite sure what will!
1. Get competitive
Ask any mother, sister, girlfriend, wife or even friend – guys are competitive. From the very first moment they can walk and talk, most dudes are keen to prove they’ve got what it takes to beat everyone else. Or at least their closest buddies. When you’ve finally managed to round up all the lads at the one time for your buck’s party, you’re going to want to use this opportunity to show everyone who rules the roost.
Paintballing on a bucks weekend is the best way to get your adrenaline flowing and prove all those hours spent with a controller in your hand, weren’t a waste. It might not be Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty, but it’s as close as you’re going to get to feeling like you’re right in the thick of the action – without putting yourself at risk. It’s also a super safe and seriously fun way to determine who is shouting the first round of beers for everyone later that night.
2. Enjoy quality bonding time
As the years go by and more of your mates start to settle down, it becomes increasingly challenging to get everyone together. Now that another member of the group has sealed the deal with the partner of his dreams, we think you’ve got the perfect excuse to call everyone up for some quality time together. And what better way to enjoy each other’s company than with a few hours running wild on the paintballing field?
Split into a team and go head-to-head against each other, and you’re guaranteed to walk away with a whole new depth to your relationship. While paintballing on a bucks brings out the most competitive side of people, it also surfaces a stack of comradery and a great sense of teamwork. Once the game wraps up, you’ll also have plenty of memories to look back on – and a whole heap of moments to laugh about too.
3. A full-body workout
For most guys heading away for a buck’s party, exercise isn’t the first priority. But between all the beers that will be consumed and the volume of food you’ll probably eat, it’s a pretty nice feeling to get your body moving too. And it turns out paintballing is a surprisingly good workout. Between running across the field, dodging your opponents and diving for cover, you’re likely to work up a pretty good sweat while you’re out in the field.
Don’t let that scare you off though! Bucks paintballing is as hard as you make it for yourself. If you’re not keen on getting hot, turning as red as a beetroot and testing your own limits, you can take things a little easier too. The beauty of this option is that it’s an activity every can get involved with – regardless of age, experience or fitness level.
4. Embrace the outdoors
There is a reason why hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe make their way to Sydney every year. Simply put, the city is stunning. From the glorious days of sunshine to the balmy summer afternoons, it’s an outdoor mecca for nature enthusiasts. And paintballing is one of the best ways to embrace this beautiful setting. If you can take your eyes off the field and your opponents for long enough, you’ll be treated to some pretty impressive scenery. These are the sorts of views that will stay with you long after you head back home, so you definitely won’t want to miss out.
5. Let off some steam
Old mate Johnny’s jokes may have been funny the first-time round, but they’re starting to get a little dry on the 18th roll out of the same punchline. Rather than taking it up with him and causing a fuss, why not use paintballing to let off that steam? From the moment you get hold of the paintball gun and the hooter sounds for your first game, we can guarantee that all those petty concerns will be well out of your head. You’ll walk away feeling so much more refreshed too – which is the ideal way to set the tone for an epic night to follow.
