Celebrating 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 word stag symbolizes one’s manliness. This correlation is really old and was based on the fact that stags were supposed to be well capable of wooing the female counterpart.
Until today, this tradition is still at large and by no means it has no plans of being forgotten any moment soon. In actuality, stag parties have evolved to be more enjoyable and more luxurious than before. In the previous years, stag parties are more of the night before the wedding celebration which in some way makes sense according to its term. However these days, the boys responsible for planning the celebration is more careful to schedule it weeks prior to the actual wedding day. 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.
Other countries have more or less the same kind of activities prepared for stag nights. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities is more likely to be dependent on the region or place. However, the idea is that the groom should experience some things that a married man will not be able to do. 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.

To make the stag party more special, it may be a good option for your friends to have it out of town! This may offer you more options for the activities involved but if you are not sure then make sure to consult an events specialist.
There are a whole lot of other options fit for your daytime activities but just make sure that it suits the groom and the whole team of guys as well. These activities include go karting, rock climbing, parasailing, wind surfing, and paintball. Keep in mind that you can limit it to daytime activities especially if the groom is uncomfortable of having perky and kinky nightouts. You can choose to go to five-star restaurants and enjoy the food while listening to relaxing music. What’s important is that all of you are in agreement and that the groom is not that uncomfortable.
In a way, stag weekends are designed to give the groom and the bride a break from all the tedious planning and wedding preparations so that they can be well-rested before the big day. This is because when you get married there will be less nights of partying and socializing and the groom is more likely to be focused on starting a new life.
