Are you referring to the bachelor party for you? Typically, grooms are not the hosts of their own bachelor parties and it is usually hosted by the GMs/best man.

Regardless, no, it’s not tacky to charge a cover charge for a bachelor party, although I wouldn’t call it a cover charge. Usually what would happen is that the host (your best man) would wrangle everyone up and say, “I’m organizing a bachelor party for Ryan on [date] and I’m thinking about going with x, y and z [e.g. poker, table service, cigars, whatever]. It will be roughly $x per person. Are you in?” Then it gives them the option of “Heck yah, I’m in. Here’s my $15.” or “No, I have plans that day. Sorry!” Most attendees of a bachelors party expect to chip in for something. However, by your best man collecting it ahead of time, it’s more like they are helping to organize/pay for this event and less “I’m paying for admission.”
