Tips for the Best Stag Weekend
Stag parties have been a tradition for several years now. Some people often wonder what a stag party is but to put it simply, a stag party is UK’s equivalent of America’s bachelor party. The term stag is often associated with manliness. This entire correlation was based on the common knowledge that stags are quite very capable of wooing their female counterparts.
This tradition is observed even until now and will more likely be observed for another few years. In fact, it has taken a more detailed and extravagant form. In the past, stag nights are prior to the exact wedding which is more appropriate for its term. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. This is due to the fact that brides are more reluctant to have their future husbands go into the wedding ceremony still half intoxicated with alcohol.
The tradition is more or less similar throughout different countries. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities part is highly dependent on the region or locality. The general concept is to have the groom experience some things that are not allowed for a typical married man. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this party.
To make the stag party more special, it may be a good option for your friends to have it out of town! This is a good opportunity to deviate from the norm.
There are tons of options that you can choose in planning daytime activities for the whole gang given that you share the same preferences. Some examples include paintball, bowling, table tennis, obstacle courses, mind museums, mountain climbing, biking, parasailing, and kayaking. Of course, if you are not the adventurous type of guy then you can totally stop here. You can actually skip the notorious night by going to a karaoke stall and sing your night out with a couple of beers in tow. It really depends on the whole gang’s preferences and especially the groom.
In essence, stag parties are a good way to have some fun and to relax the soul and mind from all the tedious work and wedding preparations so that during the big day everything will go on smoothly. The whole point of the stag party is to have a chance to have fun because when the groom ties the knot there are less chances of having fun.
