Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a Menstrie 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 Menstrie stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
Horse riding, Horse racing, Indoor skydiving and 5 a side football.
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 Menstrie 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 Menstrie stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!
The fun should absolutely not stop after the day activities, those are just the warm up act!
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!
Picking the date. Its obviously essential that the groom is available, but also take a look at the outside world. Is there a major sporting event happening that some of the guests will really want to see? This may be a good thing of course - a bunch of mates crowded round the TV with a few beers, watching the FA Cup Final can be a great laugh and focus for the weekend. And of course, make sure that there's enough time between stag and wedding for your best friend to recover!
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 Menstrie!
