What’s your stag’s style?

In the last decade or so, the stag do has exploded in popularity. What started off as a few beers the night before the wedding in a local pub has turned into a multi-day piss up, often involving exotic locations, extreme sports, matching T-shirts and, of course, excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages.

If you’re the best man and the planning has been left to you, the first thing you need to work out is what your stag’s style is. There’s no point picking an all-action stag do in Newcastle if the groom-to-be would prefer to be lying by a pool with a cool beer or partaking in a craft ale or two.

Action man

So your stag likes the outdoors – they’re pretty fit and active and don’t like sitting still – you’d better plan a packed weekend of activities then! Consider booking a paintballing session, go-karting or a high ropes course, at somewhere such as GoApe, which runs numerous activity courses around the UK.

A true gent

If your stag is all about the finer things in life, the traditional stag do ethos of ‘any drink will do’ might not sit so well. Look up a craft beer or whiskey tasting course which offers free drinks at the end of the tour to make sure he’s suitably hammered.

Choose an Edinburgh or Dublin stag do for a more refined experience – for a little while at least!

Culture vulture

Theming your evening around a great gig or event can be a fun way to celebrate impending doom (sorry, marriage.) London stag weekends offer more culture than you can shake a stick at, whether it’s at a big sporting event for all the lads to enjoy or you bag tickets to see your favourite band.
