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 was coined so that it refers to one’s 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.
Until today, this tradition is still at large and by no means it has no plans of being forgotten any moment soon. Actually, stag parties have reinvented itself to be more elaborate, charming, wild, and extravagant. In previous years, it used to be more about a night-long party the day before the wedding which is more apt for a stag night in some sense. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. Brides are more firm in not having their grooms have hangover the day after since it is after all their special day.
Other countries have more or less the same kind of activities prepared for stag nights. 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. One good example is getting the groom to dance onstage with sexy girls. But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this party.
To make the stag party more special, it may be a good option for your friends to have it out of town! 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 a whole lot of other options fit for your daytime activities but just make sure that it suits the groom and the whole team of guys as well. Examples of these activities are diving, snorkelling, sailing, motorbiking, parasailing, wind surfing, and water skiing. Of course, if you are not the adventurous type of guy then you can totally stop here. You can choose to go to five-star restaurants and enjoy the food while listening to relaxing music. What’s important is that all of you are in agreement and that the groom is not that uncomfortable.
Essentially, stag weekends are a wonderful way for everyone to have fun and unwind the body, mind and soul before the wedding day. The whole point of the stag party is to have a chance to have fun because when the groom ties the knot there are less chances of having fun.
