Stag Nights and Weekends in Rugby

The last chance to party before the big day

RUGBY WEEKENDS

It's now pretty common for a Rugby 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.

STAG WEEKEND IDEAS

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 Rugby stag do.

A sober stag is like a car with no petrol

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including Paintballing, Powerboating, Quad bikes, Rally driving and assult courses. 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 Rugby so you may want to consider other locations. When the cats away, the mice will play


Get ready for a great Rugby 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.

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.

TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

Here are some top tips for planning and running your Rugby stag weekend or stag party.

STAG DO HINTS


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.

TRAVELLING STAG


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 Rugby!


If you plan well, then the groom should have an absolutely fun-filled Rugby stag weekend including a few quick and easy games to play along the way (alongside a few standard drinking games), good ideas for fancy dress and of course some embarrassing stories - all important factors for your great stag break in Rugby.

BEST MAN ADVICE


It doesn't matter if you want a quieter and more refined evening or a big big big night out with everyone you've ever met in Rugby with a no-holds-barred attitude to everything fun you can think of, maybe you now have some fuel for the ideas.

If you're thinking of a little wilder experience you might want to try places like Talin, Budapest or Prague - they have lots to offer and are pretty good value.

Oh, and one more thing. Make sure you take care of the groom-to-be.
