Plan Out Your Own Stag Party And Surviving It!

Jun 6, 2008
Stag parties usually follow a very predictable pattern - guys get together to drink beer, go to strip clubs, drink more beer, and more importantly, to put the groom in the hot seat. This usually means requiring him to wear ridiculous outfits, making him drink more than he can really stomach, and then there's the part where the groom's loyalty to the bride is put to test.

While this may be the type of stag party you're familiar with, it isn't necessarily the only stag party there is. Believe it or not, you can have an organized stag party that can actually be fun for you. After all, it's your day, right?

Instead of having your best man plan out a party by himself, why not get involved in the preparations? This way you get to put in suggestions for activities you'd like to happen, and most important of all, you can make sure that there are no embarrassing surprises.

How Long Should a Stag Last?

An activity-based stag do can go on for as long as a whole weekend, or a quick one-nighter. For a weekend stag, you may want to organize fun activities that you and your buds like to do - like paint-balling, go-kart racing, war game competitions, or whatever interests you. If you want your stag to be a one-night stand, or a one-day stand event for that matter, why not think of other fun, outdoor activities that won't have to last longer than 24 hrs? But if you prefer to stay indoors, ask your best man to come up with fun activities that will keep everyone entertained.

Where Is the Best Place for the Event?

You can choose to have your party right in your own city, in another city, or even in another country! Deciding the location of the stag will be dependent upon the type of activity, the duration of the activity, and of course, your budget.

Looking for a place to spend your stag in your own locality won't be much of a problem. If you aren't so familiar with the area, all you have to do is ask around - dial a couple of phone numbers, or surf the web.

The same thing applies when you want to travel to another city. The only thing you'll have to consider is the transportation expenses, the event itself, and of course, the availability of your guests.

On the other hand, if you want to travel across the world for the ultimate stag party, you'll have all the above-mentioned things to worry about, plus a few thousand dollars more. You can try contacting companies that specialize in this area, tell them what you need, what you want, and then have them give you a quote. If it sounds practical and fair, then you'll have it easier. If not, you'll have to do the asking by yourself.

Anything Else?

Actually, before anything else, you'll have to make arrangements for the meals. A stag party is never a stag party without beer - and drinking on an empty stomach is not such a good idea. If you're hosting a modest party, why not ask a friend who can cook to help you out? If you're expecting at least 50 guests, hire a caterer!

And above all else, remember to have fun! But then again, be careful not to have too much fun, otherwise, you might end up missing out on your wedding!
