Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a B40 stag party to last for more than one evening, hence the increase of stag weekends. It seems as if the event gets longer and longer with every new generation! And we've seen more and more companies enter the stag weekend market, focused on making life easier for the best man . But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.
If you're looking for stag weekend ideas, you need to think about the location, what the stag might have to wear (fancy dress makes it all the funnier), and of course the activities - not just the fun and games, but also the food and drink. This site focuses on the best ideas for things to do as well as things to buy to liven up the B40 stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
Bungee jumping, City break, Skydiving, and fly fishing.
Sometimes the best man just likes to organise the activity alone, and create a huge surprise for everyone, but we recommend involving the whole group, if for nothing more than ensuring people bring the right clothing!
Not all of these are available in B40 so you may want to consider other locations. Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?
Get ready for a great B40 stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!
Of course after the activities you'll need some other good stag weekend ideas.
For many years the sum total of a stag event would be a trip to a pub. The more exciting ones might include a tour of several.
Other ideas include visiting a comedy club, and of course in most major cities you can now also find a strip club - and they are often able to set up special moments for the stag!
Special considerations. It's common sense to consider what the stag likes and doesn't like, but not always so obvious to think about the rest of the guests. Ages, dietary needs, mobility needs and even just broad-mindedness all needs to be considered. Oh, and of course if little brother or father-in-law are attending, that may have a huge impact on the types of activity you choose.
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.
It wasn't long ago that a stag weekend outside of the UK was seen as incredibly unusual, but with the arrival of cheap international flights (as well as the Eurostar) it's almost normal. And there are certainly some unusual stag weekends possible, further away than B40!
