Guide to Stag and Hen Weekends

A best man who is organizing a stag party can make it a very memorable one if he puts in some ground work. Edinburgh Stag Weekend Guide

First of all the stag himself has to be consulted on what his preferences are regarding the date, venue, activities list of invitees etc. You must decide on your budget. How much do you plan to spend? The cost may not matter, but if it does, then plan accordingly.

Fix the dates and the venue. The date has to be convenient for the stag and the invitees. It would be advisable to fix on a date at least 2 weeks ahead of the wedding. Once the dates have been decided on, decide on the venue and plan the guest list. You must decide on whether the party is to be big or a small exclusive one. The stag has to be consulted with regard to this. He may wish to invite certain people or not to invite others. After all it is his stag night. Confirm whether all the invitees will be arriving, and if the dates are convenient with all. Book early so that all the invitees can be provided for.

You must also consider whether you want a theme based party, which might need a little more organizing, but may be more enjoyable. Transport facilities for those who are coming will need to be arranged.

Other points to keep in mind are what to do, what games to play and what to give. A surprise for the stag will have to be planned but not one that is demeaning, even if rather nasty.

It would be preferable to avoid provocative entertainment, but that depends on individual preferences.

Prepare a speech to be delivered at the stag party.
These are just a few tips to help you plan a stag party without too many avoidable hitches.
