Get ready for the night of your life
It's now pretty common for a Hakin 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 there's been a massive growth in the stag weekend industry with various companies taking the "hassle" out of the stag do . 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 Hakin 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 Hakin so you may want to consider other locations. What goes on tour, stays on tour...
Get ready for a great Hakin 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.
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.
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 Hakin!
