Every lad knows a mate that has got engaged over the festive period. Therefore, there’s a good chance that many of us will be given the honour of best man duties over the coming weeks. The best part of it all: it’s time to organise the stag!
Arranging this is a huge responsibility. However, giving your mate the perfect send-off into marriage can become one of your ultimate memories as a group. With a little planning and preparation, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to produce a winning weekend.
Here are the key factors to ensure it’s a stag to remember. Keep your focus on these, and you should be sure to keep your best friend smiling.
The main goal of the stag weekend is to bring the groom’s closest friends together for one final night/weekend of freedom. This should be a time to celebrate as a group. As such, your first job is to ensure that the most important people are given enough planning time.
It doesn’t matter if you’re preparing a night in the local town or a weekend abroad. The key is that you are all together as one. And you can enhance those positive vibes further still by creating t-shirts. Those designs can all include nicknames to inject a little fun. Meanwhile, you can use this as a great way to make the stag stand out too.
Moreover, you could try to build a theme for the night or weekend too. Whatever you do, make sure you do it as one. Ultimately, that’s the most important part of the entire stag.
Let’s not kid ourselves, everything is more fun when drink is involved. There’s nothing wrong with taking in a little culture, especially if you are heading abroad for a long weekend. Nevertheless, alcohol should be at the heart of those adventures.
You can be creative with booze-fuelled lollies or other refreshments. You don’t necessarily have to neck 10 pints of lager to get your fix. However, getting involved with the Jaeger trains and beer bongs is bound to make thing fun.
Of course, you need to drink responsibly. But getting hammered is a huge part of what the stag do is all about. After all, it’s the groom’s final chance to do this as a bachelor.
If you enjoy a great stag do, then there’s a good chance that you won’t remember too much in the following morning. Therefore, it’s imperative that you capture those moments forever with a great set of photographs.
Whether you’ve hit the local pub or taken an adventure, those snaps are a great memento for the groom. After all, the stag is a crucial feature of the entire wedding process. Besides, this is his chance to forget about those associated stresses.
Furthermore, many of the group are unlikely to see each other again (wedding aside) for years. Having those memories immortalised is a definite winner. If nothing else, you can use those photos to create a cool wedding gift for the groom too.
Stag Stand Out
Its important to make sure the stag stands out on his stag do and the best way is personalising your own hi vis jacket/clothing. That way, night or day, you’ll be able to find him if he’s running to the bar for a glass of water because he can’t handle the shot train!
