The worst things you can do on a stag do

A stag do isn’t just about celebrating the groom’s impending wedding… it’s also about doing things that are so awe-inspiringly embarrassing that you can never speak of them again! It’s almost impossible for a stag do to be too wild, deranged and unpredictable, because that’s exactly what it’s supposed to be. However, there are a few things that you should avoid doing, even on the craziest of stag dos. They might seem like fun ideas or hilarious pranks at the time, but you’ll wake up the next day filled with regret. Well, technically you’ll wake up with a hangover and gradually become filled with regret as it wears off enough for you to remember what happened, but that’s beside the point.

First of all, you should probably refrain from shaving off the groom’s eyebrows. Depriving the groom of his eyebrows has become something of a tradition on alcohol-fuelled stag dos. Sadly, however, it’s not a terribly good idea. Most stag dos take place close to the wedding – some even take place the night before. In other words, the groom isn’t going to have time to regrow anything you shave off before the nuptials. Would you want to get married without eyebrows? Would you want to look back at your wedding photos years later and wish that they could have been there, sitting proudly above your eyeballs? No? I didn’t think so. Leave the groom’s eyebrows alone.

Secondly, don’t leave the country if the wedding is scheduled for the following day. That may sound blindingly obvious, but you’d be astounded by the number of stag dos that start out in London and end up somewhere in Scotland, Ireland or even mainland Europe. If your circle of friends is affluent enough to afford last-minute aeroplane tickets, the risk of waking up in the wrong nation after a stag do is very real. Remember: if you wake up, look out of your window and see the Eiffel Tower, something has gone very badly wrong.

Thirdly and finally, don’t get the groom arrested – nobody wants to get married in prison overalls. It’s perfectly natural for pranks to get out of hand on a stag do, but try to stay within the bounds of the law. You can always get back to your Lex Luthor-esque life of crime when there isn’t a wedding looming, if that’s your sort of thing (we’re not going to judge you).
