One of the hardest parts about organising a stag do is the actual activity, whether you want to do something exciting and different or just to drink and laugh with some close friends.

Obviously the most important part is that the activity appeals to the groom to be and his interests, because it needs to be something to remember for him.

Knowing the amount of guys coming and what the times of activities are is also essential to stag do planning, and will make planning and the actual day/weekend a lot less stressful for you, meaning more successful! If you’re going for a cheeky beer babes bar crawl, you want to make sure you meet the babes and your friends on time so you can get the fun underway.
