@MsBark:  I’m glad you like it, i just found it on google.  Also, you can get a ton of different fonts for free online. I’ve used dafont.com before and gotten a bunch that I really like.

@MsBark:  This sounds like a very good idea. Call the place a head of time to ask them of their selection. You can look up reviews to make your decision on what you will order. The cigars are also a fun idea.

The dancing will def. be fun for everyone! I don’t think you need to do too much planning.

Good luck!

I might be in the minority here but I say keep the cake. I agree with having classier invites but since it’s an upscale place and will be a more mature night, I would present the cake by saying “since I know you’re bummed about turning the big 3-0…” I guarantee you will get laughs

@MsBark:  If all the guests are bachelors, they are not going to give a damn about what the invite or cake looks like. Just do whatever you want, and don’t feel like you have to go overboard with the ‘theme’ or ‘decorations’ — just makes sure they are provided with good food and a good environment.

@MsBark:  Don’t let the PPs’ posts discourage you.  I think this is awesome.  My Fiance is an “ass guy” too (and our guy friends are mostly single) and he would be thrilled with that cake.  A bit about our background: we are the ever-hated “finance” professionals, live comfortably, we and our friends would be considered “upper crust” under any definition, and this would be absolutely 100% up our alley.  We know because we have been to about a dozen of these “30th birthday bashes” in the last 2 years, and each time, something like that came out and it was a complete hit.  No one who I know would consider you too “old” or immature for doing this.  Total props to you and your Fiance for doing this!!  Good luck!

@MsBark:  And if means anything… here’s an anecdote:

 

Fi and I have a very close guy friend (he went to college with me, and he works with FI).  He just got married.  He also just turned 30.  His wife threw an “upscale” wine party for his 30th birthday.  A few weeks later, another mutual friend of ours turned 30; his amazing wife rented an In N Out Burger truck, ordered THREE ass cakes, and tit cupcakes (so cute), and our friend told us, “Geez, I wish I had this instead of wine!”.  The mutual friends’ 30th birthday bash has simply been the most memorable so far.  

 

 

 

I say stick with you guns (or “buns,” in your case) and throw him a 30th to remember!!  Who cares if it is not “classy” enough or too “immature.”  It’s a birthday!  It’s a 30th year!  Men love asses!  I mean, darn, I love asses.  You have to do this!

I would go with a generic invite like the one @CoCoCourtney: suggested and then get him the fun Leafs cake if he’s really a huge fan. Since it’s not a themed party, I wouldn’t do both the invitation and the cake with a theme unless he’s like known for being the #1 Leafs fan ever. I would definitely not get the ass cake and try to minimize the playboy bunnies.

@beetrothed:  +1, to each their own!  OP, you know your FI’s tastes better than a bunch of strangers on the internet do!

@beetrothed:  “we are the ever-hated “finance” professionals, live comfortably, we and our friends would be considered “upper crust” under any definition.”

Does this mean that you’re fancy?

@skippydarling:  But honestly… I don’t know what you mean… would that sweep us within the definition of fancy?  I sure know a lot of people whom I consider “fancy” and I don’t think we could even scrape their level of ballerness.

@MsBark:  I agree with the PPs saying it seems immature. I don’t think you should go with the Playboy theme, IMO.
