The Perfect Stag Do

Image
OK everyone is different and have their own opinion of a perfect stag do, however after booking so many stag dos and attending loads with my mates I wouldn't mind putting down the perfect stag do in the UK.

Now this isn't the most expensive stag do money can buy and would include linking champagne off C list celebrities as that isn't realistic.

It's about putting down a theme that most stag parties like to take in order to send their mate off in style.

First things first, staying in a good hotel has many benefits including a late bar, a big buffet breakfast and a comfy bed, so a 3 to 4 star hotel centrally located is my ideal accommodation.

Lap dancing on the first night starts the weekend off with a bang and gives the stag a real treat right at the start of the weekend.

After breakfast and plenty of coffee get picked up by minibus to take us to an activity site which has Rage Buggies and Paintball on the same site. Rage Buggies for the adrenalin and paintball for the…

Make The Most Of The Weather On Your Stag Do

Image
Summer really should be sunny, blue skies and BBQ’s in the back garden however, we do live in the UK and not Australia. So even though the sky may be cloudy and you have just got soaked going to the local, maybe we should take advantage of this wet weather by doing some fantastic stag activities. After all, white water rafting would be boring without loads of rain, no frothing rivers and raging rapids just a slow moving stream not big enough for poo sticks let alone a raft full of hung over men! Then you have Canyoning, without a decent amount of rain there would be no waterfalls to walk behind or deep pools to jump into making it a walk rather then an adventure! Quad biking on a dry and dusty tracks can be a bit tame, you need mud, steams, land slides and a slippery surface to make things a little more interesting. So even though the weather may be wet take advantage of it, and do some amazing activities on your next stag do. Any by the way, pack a macs are still not trendy.

Horse Racing Weekends

You don’t have to walk with a cane and wear a long hat to enjoy a trip to Royal Ascot nor do you need to know the tail end of a donkey to enjoy a horse-racing event.
A visit to a racecourse on a stag weekend comes highly recommended especially on ladies day, HELLOOOO.
What’s not to like; excitement from watching your horse win, a fully stocked bar, an immense atmosphere and all your mates together, enjoying themselves.
Now, I am not sure about other stag companies however, most Horse Racing weekends DesignaVenture offer include transport to and from your hotel to the racecourse, 2 nights in a 3 or 4 star hotel with breakfast and a horse racing package which generally includes drink and food vouchers, a racing guide and a tote bet.
One of the biggest events of the horse-racing calendar is Royal Ascot, and your stag party can be there. This event is fantastic and has an atmosphere so electric you can charge up your phone on it.
So if you don't fancy doing an activity but need something t…

Some Good Advice For The First Time Stag Organiser

Image
Organising your very first stag do is a daunting task.

You want to get it right so you don't get a load of grief on the stag weekend or from your best mate, the stag.

Below is a few gems of advice which will help you on your way to a happy clappy stag weekend.

First of all don't price everyone off the weekend
Some best men get caught up in the moment and book loads of stuff in order to give their stag the best weekend ever however;

Everyone will have a budget and if you obliterate that budget they are likely to let you down, speak to as many attendees as you can in order to get a good idea of how much people are willing to spend.

Book something for the main day, don't peak too soon
 I had a mate who always used to say to me as I was lying in the gutter at 10pm at night, "don't peak too soon boy, pace yourself."

Wise words that, if on the main day most people start in the pub by midday, you know by 7pm there will be quite a few people in the stag group leathere…

Is Golf a Good Stag Activity?

Image
Golf in my opinion will split your group, depending on who is in your stag party, Golf is not always a great stag activity.

Let's just say the Jury's out.

Some groups embrace the sport and others find that only a low portion of the group will turn up.

There are some fantastic golf courses in the UK with prices over the weekend is on the decline. Also these days and most golf courses don't even ask for everyone to have a handicap.

It's a great activity to do as it's not too strenuous, the boys can go round in groups of four chat laugh and generally have a great day.

However, it's also an extremely hard and frustrating sport (talking from experience) and if you have never played before and never really fancied it, there is a chance you would not want to pay for it no matter how much you love your mate.

So if your group is made up of like minded individuals who don't mind picking up golf clubs from time to time and taking a swing, golf is a great stag do acti…
