Book Your Stag Do Early

We are always banging on about booking early, it really is the best route when arranging a stag do, well you know what they say; "the early bird catches the worm" and "the second mouse get's the cheese!"

I know it's Autumn (officially, Autumn starts on the 22nd September at 10:29pm if you're interested, I am sure you're not), but booking your stag do for next summer is a good call.

I feel you need reasons why you should book early:

  • If you are booking flights, booking your seats early doors will save you a whole pile of money, depending on where you wish to fly to, you could save up to £200 per person (I might as well stop there, I feel saving a whopping £200 per person is evidence enough, however I will prevail).
  • You should get your first choice of accommodation
  • Booking early will also mean activity slots will be empty ready for your group to grab
  • You'll get your first choice of activities and times
There are also more practical reasons to book early which will help you manage your group better. 

Booking your weekend early confirms the date of your stag, so the boys can put it in their diaries avoiding double booking the weekend. Most of these guys will have wives or girlfriends so getting in their and booking a date before they do makes sense.

Usually for a stag package without flights to the UK or Europe all you have to do is stick a minimal group deposit down (DesignaVenture's is currently £60.00), with a rough idea of numbers and then invite people to pay their deposit direct, online or via the dog and bone.

Booking before the end of the year, to go the following year, can also mean getting a package or an activity before the price goes up, bargain!

So to wrap this up, you're going to get married, you're going to have a stag, so surprise yourself, be totally efficient and get something confirmed before some other groups steals your weekend.

Comedian holding up a magnify glass
As best man you will need to be funny, hilarious, you have to bring the house down, so no pressure!

Lucky for you there is help out there, this incredible post will give you loads of free best man jokes, plus other jokes which you may be able to slip into your set, I mean speech.

First of all lets try and cover the funniest best man jokes (in our opinion, other jokes may be funnier):

Best Man Funnies

The groom has told me that they are going to Wales for their Honeymoon, well his exact words to me was "as soon as we're married, I'm going to Bangor for a week".

A best man's speech should be like a mini-skirt, short enough to keep everyone's attention, longer enough to cover the essentials.

The groom, he's witty, good looking, caring, thoughtful, honest, char...char..ming, sorry I can't read his writing.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's been an incredible day, everything has gone amazingly well, the bride looks draw droopingly beautiful "I am speechless.....", no literally, I have lost my speech.


I have just met the chief bridesmaid and I can confirm, I won't be going with tradition.

For those of you who are not internet savvy or or can't get signal, let me give you an update on the Bride's facebook account. She has changed her status to "married" which both her parents have disliked and within the last 15 minutes 27 blokes have poked her.

What's the difference between your in-laws and out-laws, out-laws are wanted.

How many brides does it take to change a light bulb, ONE because it's her day and no one else's.


Now as you are well aware, you need to be funny and other jokes, not just married related or groom bashing should also be included.

Below, I have put together some of the Edinburgh Fringe's funniest one liners and jokes which you may be able to slip into your speech, to make it more rounded.

Other Jokes

"I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again." Tim Vine

"As a kid I was made to walk the plank, well we couldn't afford a dog." Gary Delaney

"My old man used to say to me always fight fire with fire, and that's why he no longer works for the Fire brigade." Harry Hill

"I've been married for 10 years, I haven't made a decision for seven." Jason Cook

"The first time I met my wife, I knew she was a keeper. She was wearing massive gloves". Alun Cochrun

"Kim Kardashian is saddled with a huge arse...but that's enough about Kanye West." Stewart Francis

"I bought one of those anti-bullying wristbands when they first came out. I say 'bought', I actually stole it off a short, fat, ginger kid." Jack Whitehall
