Booking Last Minute?

An Are Your Ready Sign
Right you need to arrange a stag do, like ummm yesterday...

Have you been a total buffoon and forgot to book the stag weekend? Or has this been sprung on to you from out of the blue?

Whatever your reason, booking a stag do last minute can be tricky however if you stick to this 5 point plan you could become hero within your group, you will be seen rising above the masses and giving your best mate the send off he deserves.

Number 1 (Dates & Numbers)

Don't panic for Chrips sake, you need to lock down a weekend when everyone (important) is available and get numbers, urgently. If Barry from the post rooms who hardly knows the stag can't make, that's not your beef.

This is the age of communication, Facebook, Twitter, Text, Email, Mobile, WhatsApp - get a list of all the invitees along with their contact details from the stag and invite them. Giving a 48 hour deadline - if people don't get back to you within the time limit then they're not coming, unless told otherwise - no time to chase.


Number 2 (Be flexible, but not too flexible)

Do not book a rigid stag do where everyone has to attend the whole stag weekend, you may find some of the guys can only go for 1 night, or only have the time to attend the activities so give them pricing options if need be.

Don't be a muppet, don't pay for people you don't know or trust when booking late, once you have paid usually this means if people drop out you could loose money with cancelation charges etc. If people want to come they will find a way to pay on time.

Number 3 (Put the time in)

The more time you put in at the very beginning of organising the stag, the less running around you will have to do, for example send everyone all the details, including details on how to pay, all in one WhatsApp text or email, passing on the burden to them, again if they are serious they will cough up, commit and pay.

Number 4 (Don't mother)

Meet, eat, drink, play, cry and go home - in that order.

Once everything is booked and paid for, send the itinerary and all the details out to the guys electronically and then sit back and let them get on with it - you may need to arrange transport to get you all to the stag destination or arrange a few designated drivers, but that really should be your job done.

At the end of the weekend you should get plenty of thanks, and a picture of you will be shown on the "winners" page of the last minute stag bible.
