Because Lads, Lads, Lads…
1. Don’t Tell The Lads To Bring Anything
Tell the lads to bring absolutely nothing. Now you look like a great guy but more importantly you control the food, the booze and Steve won’t bring that weird 150 IBU Apricot IPA he forces on everyone.
2. Set an odd time for arrival, like 7:10 pm.
6:00? 7:30? Lads won’t take these times seriously, throw a :40 in there or a :20, the lads will think there’s a reason and will be much more likely to show up on time.
3. Always Toast
Toasting brings the lads together, it kicks off the evening and is the equivalent of pouring gasoline on the fires of lad conversation. The best toast I’ve ever heard comes from my friend Mike “There’s tall ships and small ships, but the best ships are friendships”, it’s cheezy as hell but watch the table light up after clinking glasses.
4. Serve Red Meat
It’s the lads, burgers, steaks, skewers… Don’t overthink it.
5. Buy A Nice Bottle Of Bourbon And Put It In The Center Of The Table Directly After The Meal.
This is where best man speeches are rehearsed, biggest fears are revealed and friendships are forged.
