Stag Don'ts


This blog is packed to the rafters with ideas, advice and help for what can be a tricky weekend to organise; the infamous stag do.

Over the years we have gained copious amounts of experience (well, we have been around since 2003 you know) from our own experiences and reading stacks of articles on problem stag dos, so we thought we would collate this information in to a post all about helping you keep your nose clean!

We are not trying to turn your stag do event in to a damp squid in anyway, we are actually trying to help you do quite the opposite!

Number 1 - Don't booze up before flying, unlike Red Bull and Vodka it seriously doesn't mix well

Keep off the booze if you're about to get on a flight. We are not saying don't have a few beers, just don't get larruped!

Too many stag parties this year alone have hit the headlines after being kicked off flights or worse still, landed halfway through the flight at the nearest airport and been arrested, this can also be seriously costly to you, definitely the best way to totally ruin a stag do!

Number 2 - Don't pay for the group in full, then expect them all to pay you back.

OK,  We know you want the best stag do for your mate, but picking up the tab because you’re the organiser of the stag do is certainly unwise, especially paying for people you don't know or trust in the group.

Within a time frame, typically 4 weeks of departure, most stag companies will not refund for cancelled places so don't pay for people unless they have paid you or you trust them explicitly. People are extremely fickle and will say "yes count me in" just to be apart of the conversation, you have been warned.

Number 3 - Don't forget to bring Your ID

If you look under 25 most venues these days will ask for ID, so don't leave it to chance bring your ID to the stag do, unless you have grey hair and have more bags under your eyes then my bag-for-life draw, actually you better bring ID to, you may of had a hard paper round.

Number 4 - Don't be rude

The last thing you want to do is p*ss people off in your hotel, at the activity site or restaurant/clubs, so be civil and enjoy your weekend. Getting kicked off site, or out of your digs halfway through the night is not cool. It's not just your time you will spoil it may be your mates as well.

Number 5 - Don’t get on it before your daytime activities 

If you plan to drink the entire stag weekend make sure you haven’t booked any activities which cannot be done under the influence. There have been cases were activity providers have refused groups to protect their and your safety.

So if you have an activity enjoy it and then get on it, not the other round.

Number 6 - Don't be gobby or go all social media 

'What goes on tour, stays on tour' and this old rule may sound crass, obnoxious, laddie or whatever you want to label it, it's a great rule to stick by, you maybe protecting your fellow staggers and others. 

Remember some people would rather not know. No one likes their bubble burst.

Number 7 - Don’t be a total Tw*t

Please note; fortunately this only applies to less than 1%

Don't be that tw*t in the group that urinates on a monument, shouts obscenities or exposes themselves because you think its funny, even if you have the body of Aiden Turner, you could be arrested, or worse still; just be a total liability to the other members of the group who will be wishing you’d drop down a crack in the pavement.

All joking aside do you really want to be the one remembered for all the wrong reasons?

We have endless other stag do advice and tips, plus even a 101 guide, explore our blog and have a brilliant stag do.

Good luck!
