TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

Here are some top tips for planning and running your Ampleforth stag weekend or stag party.

STAG DO HINTS


On the big night, make sure that you keep the stag conscious. It's very easy, in the excitement of the night, to push more and more beer in the stag's direction, only to find out that at 9pm he's literally under the table, unable to carry on. That's not the kind of fun that he, or anyone else really wants. So pace the evening, keep an eye on what the other guests are pouring, and make sure he has the night of his life!

And please please please make sure that you and the other guests know that it's entirely inappropriate to talk about the specifics of the stag at any point during the wedding, even if you're certain no-one else is listening.
