What goes on tour, stays on tour
It's now pretty common for a Helston 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 Helston stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
Kayaking or canoeing, Off roading, snowboarding, and orienterring.
Although extreme activity can be great fun, it's definitely a good idea to have a chat with the stag in advance, just to get a sense of what he'd like to do.
Not all of these are available in Helston so you may want to consider other locations. Nothing is more perfect than a stag weekend with your best mates
Get ready for a great Helston 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. 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.
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.
Think about the little things, such as cameras with batteries. Yes, it's easy to use camera phones, but it's also very easy to start emailing inappropriate photos around when the beer is flowing. Also make sure that there's a good breakfast planned, and that any driving happens in the afternoon not the morning - since there's likely to be plenty of alcohol left in everyone's body!
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 Helston!
