Stag Weekend Parties
Stag parties have been a tradition for several years now. Some people often wonder what a stag party is but to put it simply, a stag party is UK’s equivalent of America’s bachelor party. The term stag is often associated with manliness. This correlation is really old and was based on the fact that stags were supposed to be well capable of wooing the female counterpart.
Even now, this tradition is still observed by many people and it seems as though it is not going to die down anytime soon. Actually, stag parties have reinvented itself to be more elaborate, charming, wild, and extravagant. In the past, stag nights are prior to the exact wedding which is more appropriate for its term. However these days, the boys responsible for planning the celebration is more careful to schedule it weeks prior to the actual wedding day. No bride would want their groom to have a terrible hangover during the wedding ceremony.
This special tradition is not totally different in other countries. Generally, the day starts with a casual get together coupled with light but fun activities. The activities part is highly dependent on the region or locality. But the general notion is that the groom can get to do unusual things that are not experienced by a married man. For instance, it involves various pranks such as getting the groom to strip down and parading him around the club or street. The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this party.
But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
To add a special twist to the aprty, you may choose to hold it in another country than your own. This may offer you more options for the activities involved but if you are not sure then make sure to consult an events specialist.
There are tons of options that you can choose in planning daytime activities for the whole gang given that you share the same preferences. Some examples include paintball, bowling, table tennis, obstacle courses, mind museums, mountain climbing, biking, parasailing, and kayaking. Keep in mind that you can limit it to daytime activities especially if the groom is uncomfortable of having perky and kinky nightouts. You can actually skip the notorious night by going to a karaoke stall and sing your night out with a couple of beers in tow. You really have to have a consensus and bear in mind that the opinion of the groom matters a lot.
In a way, stag weekends are designed to give the groom and the bride a break from all the tedious planning and wedding preparations so that they can be well-rested before the big day. This is actually a good idea before the groom settles down and will have less chances of saying yes to a party night.
