Because there's nothing better than a great stag do
It's now pretty common for a HD5 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. This site focuses on the best ideas for things to do as well as things to buy to liven up the HD5 stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
white water rafting, Surfing, Tank driving, and Zorbing.
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 HD5 so you may want to consider other locations. Girls, booze and more girls - that's the secret to a great stag
Get ready for a great HD5 stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!
And then it's time to get the boys heads ready for the fun that's going to follow. It's a very long tradition to get the stag completely hammered, but please make sure you drink responsibly - no-one likes to throw up and accidents can happen when there's too much booze on the go.
And these days many best men like to end the evening in one of the local areas lap dancing clubs. You'll be surprised how many of those are around when you start looking.
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 HD5!
