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
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
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 to do on the Saturday, horse racing is a great stag do event.
Here are few bits of Terminology,
which may help:
The parade ring
Where you can go and see the horses before they race
Where weight has been added
to a horse to make the race more equal
A race over ditches, fences and water jumps
When you bet on a number of races (one horse per race), each winning bet goes towards the next race
and if you win we are talking big money
A person licensed to take bets
Your money is spread so if your horse comes first, second or third you win (how much you win will depend on where your horse comes in).
This question possibly pops up in the best man's mind as soon as he has been offered the job, "should the groom pay for his own stag do"?
As best man you could pay for his share or split the price between the whole group.
This would mean the group paying an extra £10 - £30 depending on the group size and the price of the stag do.
There are many arguments whether he should or should not pay for his own stag do, such as: He should pay for his own stag weekend because; I paid for my own stag doI am paying to go on his stag weekend and that's costing me enough so why should I have to pay for part of his?The groom is minted, why should I have to pay for him.
He should not pay for his own stag do because; As best man, I should do my best to look after himHe is paying for the wedding, he has enough to pay forYou and most of the stag group are invited to the wedding, this is a good way of showing gratitude
The above bullet points are just some of the reasons why you should or s…
The crazy times we are currently living under can only be described as unprecedented, never seen before and historical. Your children or grandchildren will be opened mouthed when you tell them that you couldn't even go to the pub!
So if you are in need of a stag do in lockdown here are some cracking ideas. By the way, this shouldn't replace your physical stag do because at the end quarantining, you will be in desperate need of some socialising. Stag Do Under Lockdown - How to Prepare
First and foremost you will need video calling software, which will work across lots of different platforms and devices, such as Apple, Android, Windows etc.
If you are all on Apple I would highly recommend FaceTime for ease of use and quality of calls.
If your group is on multiple devices then Zoom* is a great option. There are others such as; Houseparty, Discord, Messenger etc.
There are some time restraints on Zoom if you have the free version on your desktop, so set up the zoom meeting on your…

Here at the DesignaVenture towers we have raided our DVD collections and VHS tapes and watched as many stag do themed films as possible to rate them in our very own special Top 10 stag do movie compilation.
So which stag do movies have received the DesignaVenture Movie Gongs:
Bachelor Party Vegas (2006 - IMDb rating 4.7/10)
Possibly the start of the modern stag do comedy movie where the stars pack their bags and head to Vegas for a weekend to remember, or forget! This funny film also includes lots of naked ladies and even Paintball guns, how very apt.
Stag Night (2008 - IMDb rating 4.9/10)
This is definitely not light hearted or a comedy in any way, a stag party takes the New York underground and gets off at the wrong haunted station, "STAY ON THE TRAIN!". A thriller which will put you off having a stag do in New Yor…
