Planning the Stag of the Year
As a best man, one of the most important parts of wedding preparation is planning the stag party
. Between that and the best man’s speech on the big day, it’s safe to say that you’ve really got your work cut out for you there. As tempting as it can be to plan an all inclusive lads bash to Magaluf for a week full of antics that even Channel 4 wouldn’t film, planning the stag of the year involves so much more than simply choosing the occasion that will get you and your gang the most drunk and disorderly.
We’ve collated some of our top tips into this handy blog post for you on how to plan the stag of the year.
Keep the Stag in mind at all times
This might seem like a fairly obvious suggestion, but so many best men get carried away with the planning that they forget to actually consider who the groom is and what he might like for his stag party. If your friend is a big party animal, then absolutely - be sure to include lots of opportunities for drinks and a good laugh. From beer bikes to pub crawls, boat parties and foreign trips - there are plenty of ways to perfectly include what he likes. However, if he’s a little sensitive and shy and perhaps wouldn’t want to upset his wife to be, you might want to reconsider the elaborate stripper you’d booked - or at least hide the evidence anyway!
Consider your entourage
Though the father of the groom might be every bit as excitable and ready for fun as you and your mates, it’s important to remember the entire entourage, and plan something that everyone can enjoy. Of course, it’s all about compromise, but try and include activities that everyone can enjoy - especially if the groom’s father in law to be is tagging along. There are some things he doesn’t need to see! This also goes for budget. Whilst you might have hundreds of pounds to play with and you’re more than willing to spend them on your best buddy, that might not be the case for everyone. Try and get a sense of the budget you’re working with before you start planning so that you can plan something which is suitable for everyone and no one gets left out!
Don’t let peer pressure get to you
Peer pressure is the worst thing that can happen to a stag do, and you’re in charge of the planning which means it’s so important that you don’t give in. From considering your groom’s wishes, to assessing the budgetary requirements or even planning something truly outrageous, make sure you go with what your groom would want and what suits your entire party best, don’t give into peer pressure.
Most importantly of all, be sure to plan everything to perfection and don’t get too wrapped up in your preparation - it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy every second.
