Because there's nothing better than a great stag do
It's now pretty common for a Tresco 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.
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 Tresco stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
clay pigeon shooting, Coasteering, Day at the races, and swimming.
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 Tresco 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 Tresco 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. 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.
And these days many best men like to end the evening in one of the local areas lap dancing clubs. You'll be surprised how many of those are around when you start looking.
If you're organising quite a few people, and you're sensibly planning well in advance, it can be hard to get firm commitments from people. It's a really good idea to give an estimation of costs upfront. If the weekend is going to cost a fair bit, you need to know whether you'll end up excluding some people. And if you are getting the guests to make their own bookings (flight, hotel, etc) then make sure you keep reminding them to get on with it.
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 Tresco!
