Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a Portree 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. Our site will help you think through the weekend and give you tips on all the things to think about for the Portree 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.
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 Portree so you may want to consider other locations. What goes on tour, stays on tour...
Get ready for a great Portree stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!
Of course after the activities you'll need some other good stag weekend ideas.
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.
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!
On the big night, make sure that you keep the stag conscious. It's very easy, in the excitement of the night, to push more and more beer in the stag's direction, only to find out that at 9pm he's literally under the table, unable to carry on. That's not the kind of fun that he, or anyone else really wants. So pace the evening, keep an eye on what the other guests are pouring, and make sure he has the night of his life!
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 Portree!
