A 5-Step Guide To Planning A Stag Do

Image
It's easy, you've been asked by your best mate to be his second most important person at his wedding, his best man.

However before the wedding there's that extremely important task of planing the stag do. However complexity is not your thing, you like to keep things simple, you don't have time to be dicking around, so here's a quick 5 step guide to planning a legendary stag do.

Step 1 - Up For Discussion Don't just go and book a stag weekend and expect everyone to fall in line, it doesn't work that way. You need to speak to the stag himself and find out what he has in mind. Then you need to speak to his other best friends / ushers and get their take on what should happen on this legendary stag do.

Don't: ask the whole group or it'll take you a month to digest your findings.

Do: take on suggestions and ideas.

Step 2 - Be Money Mindful Every invitee will have their idea of budget, how much they are willing to spend on your best mate's stag do.

Stag Activity Ideas Spotlight: Quad Biking

Image
The brilliant quad biking activity has been a stag do favourite for as long as I can remember. They are an immense amount of fun to ride and are versatile, strong, can go through almost any terrain plus they're easy to drive.
What is a quad bike? A quad bike is 4 wheeled motorcycle which usually has low pressurised tyres giving you more grip.

It has handle bars to steer with, a throttle push lever usually underneath the right side of the hand grip which you push with your thumb.

Most stag do destinations that offer quad biking use automatic gears (forward and reverse) making it the perfect stag do activity which doesn't involve wasting loads of time learning how to drive it.

Quad Bike Racing Quite a few stag do destinations offer quad bike racing around specially designed race tracks which usually includes, chicanes, tight corners, jumps and adverse / reverse chambers.




Before you start racing you will be given a full safety briefing and demo. You'll be issued with a helme…

Liven up your stag night with a theme or game, and there's no better stag do game than pub golf.

So here at the DesignaVenture Towers we have been listening to our stag parties and recently we have been asked for the rules to the stag do game Pub Golf.

So like the pleasing company we are, here are the rules to this brilliant game that doesn't come with frustration and certainly doesn't ruin a good pub crawl.

Pub Golf Rules Rule #1 - Dress Code Everyone MUST dress up like a pro golfer. Socks with a tartan or Argyle pattern if you please, brightly coloured golfing trousers (the more pastel the better), a matching shirt or polo shirt and a sun-visor. Golf shoes are not compulsory but are a great addition.



Rule #2 - Pick Your Course Wisely At your chosen stag weekend destination you're going to need a pub crawl route. 9 pubs / bars in fairly close proximity of each other, to add to the theme try and pick sports bars or pubs or a pub/bar with a relatable golfing name.
