Seen as it’s one of the biggest weekends of your groom to be’s life (apart from the wedding of course), it seems only right to choose an epic stag do location to coincide with your memorable plans to celebrate. Usually, choosing from the many stag do destinations is one of the first decision’s you as a best man has to make. After that, it’s all plain sailing and fun and games when you choose the most eye-catching stag do activities for your group to dive into. From cities that boast awesomely central hotels to destinations that put you in some of the most remote locations, the best part about picking somewhere to go is that there is literally something for every groom to be and his group to enjoy!
But the question still stands… how on earth can you narrow down over 60 different cities throughout the UK and all over Europe to one location that has everything you need? We’ve got a few ideas to make the task a little less daunting:
Think About the Priority
Above all else, every decision you make needs to have the question “will my best pal enjoy this?” After all, it’s his final blowout before he says his vows and gets hitched! Choosing the best stag destinations is much easier if your groom to be has somewhere he loves, or somewhere he’s always wanted to visit. If this isn’t the case, think about the type of stag party you want to throw. Looking for the ultimate booze up with the besties? Head to an iconic party city like Liverpool or Newcastle for the finest watering holes. Want a place with sun, sex and cheeky night time activities? You can’t beat the sultry city of Amsterdam. Whatever the case, think about the stag first!
Home or Away?
In the last decade or two, the biggest question when choosing the perfect city for the stag weekend has been home or away. Do you stay put on our little wet island, or fly the nest and try one of Europe’s finest stag party locations? There’s a few factors to think about when tackling this decision, so we suggest you make a mighty good list of pros and cons for a stag do UK and stag do abroad, and work through them with the aid of the groomsmen. Because who says you need to be responsible for all the scary stuff?
A stag party away doesn’t always have to mean jetting off to somewhere warm and paying a bomb to book flights for a bunch of guys – trust us, that’s a whole lot of work. Have you even considered a hilarious stag do in Wales to provide a change of scenery for your pals? Or maybe a cheeky venture up north for a taste of the Scottish life, even for just a short weekend.
When you’re trying to pick the best spot for stag weekends, it can be difficult to please everyone and their budgets. Just remember that without the guests, the stag do wouldn’t be the same – so choosing a city that suits everyone is critical to how the celebrations unravel. Our VIP Events Area will help you keep track of payments after the booking, but we suggest setting a strict budget right at the start of all your planning so you know what you have to work with. Other than that, a cheeky stag do package won’t harm your wallets, giving you a bunch of activities and experiences in one booking for a cheaper price.
