Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a Rhiconich 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.
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 Rhiconich stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
a Boat party, Bobsleigh, Rock climbing, Skiing and roller-skating.
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 Rhiconich so you may want to consider other locations. A sober stag is like a car with no petrol
Get ready for a great Rhiconich 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.
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 Rhiconich!
