Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a Stackpole 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! There's been a sharp increase in the number of companies setting up to help the best man plan the perfect stag weekend . 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 Stackpole stag do.
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 Stackpole so you may want to consider other locations. No such thing as a sober stag
Get ready for a great Stackpole 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.
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.
Special considerations. It's common sense to consider what the stag likes and doesn't like, but not always so obvious to think about the rest of the guests. Ages, dietary needs, mobility needs and even just broad-mindedness all needs to be considered. Oh, and of course if little brother or father-in-law are attending, that may have a huge impact on the types of activity you choose.
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 Stackpole!
