Stag Weekends - the greatest invention of the 21st Century
It's now pretty common for a Hale 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 we've seen more and more companies enter the stag weekend market, focused on making life 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 Hale stag do.
There are so many
great things to do on a stag weekend, including
Bungee jumping, City break, Skydiving, and fly fishing.
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 Hale so you may want to consider other locations. What goes on tour, stays on tour...
Get ready for a great Hale 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.
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.
Think about the little things, such as cameras with batteries. Yes, it's easy to use camera phones, but it's also very easy to start emailing inappropriate photos around when the beer is flowing. Also make sure that there's a good breakfast planned, and that any driving happens in the afternoon not the morning - since there's likely to be plenty of alcohol left in everyone's body!
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 Hale!
