The last chance to party before the big day
It's now pretty common for a Balerno 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! To take advantage in this rise in popularity, there are now many stag busineses dedicated to making things easier for the best man. But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.
Since you're on our site we assume you need to think about the stag weekend. That's going to include everything from setting the date and location, organising the activities and entertainment, and of course keeping the groom somewhere between sober and hammered. Our site will help you think through the weekend and give you tips on all the things to think about for the Balerno stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
white water rafting, Surfing, Tank driving, and Zorbing.
If you're planning a stag weekend for the groom, make sure you know what he likes, and more importantly doesnt like. Sky diving might be great fun for you, but if you suddenly discover the groom has a pathalogical fear of heights...
Not all of these are available in Balerno so you may want to consider other locations. No such thing as a sober stag
Get ready for a great Balerno stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!
Of course after the activities you'll need some other good stag weekend ideas.
Traditionally the stag would be paraded around a selection of local pubs and the best bars, followed by a small amount of food and a then on to a night club.
But of course there other options from taking in a little bit of comedy, sitting down and actually eating a decent meal (!!!) and of course the almost compulsory strip club.
If you're organising quite a few people, and you're sensibly planning well in advance, it can be hard to get firm commitments from people. It's a really good idea to give an estimation of costs upfront. If the weekend is going to cost a fair bit, you need to know whether you'll end up excluding some people. And if you are getting the guests to make their own bookings (flight, hotel, etc) then make sure you keep reminding them to get on with it.
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 Balerno!
