Stag Weekend Ideas and Things to Avoid

With this in mind, we want to help you out a bit with some stag weekend ideas: fails to avoid! You can thank us later.
Don’t Leave It Too Late
Okay so we know that this advice might be too little too late for some guys, and if you’re looking at this with a month to go until your so-called stag party then you might be in panic mode. Chill! A months’ notice for a stag do is loads, trust us. You still have time to look at stag do activities, sort some accommodation, buy supplies and pay for everything without having to freak out. We’re merely suggesting that you don’t leave it any later than that, as you’ll miss out on deals and availability which might put a real downer on organising a killer stag night.
We say this time and time again to any stag we come across, DO NOT PAY IN A GROUP. Not only will this definitely ramp up the stress for the organiser and the stag himself, it could also ruin friendships and even the wedding if people are stingy or don’t pay on time. There are so many ways you can easily pay separately so that everyone is responsible for themselves. Try an event payment app (they’re free), or use something like our online VIP events area where everyone can pay separately and have access to the times and itinerary for the weekend.
Fancy Dress Frenzy
A big part of any send-off is whether you and your group decide to wear ridiculous fancy dress to make the night more memorable. Although we’re definitely pro fancy dress, there’s definitely some stag weekend ideas fails to avoid in this area. The biggest fail is not checking if the bar, nightclub or even restaurant that you’ve booked allowed fancy dress in their venue. This can completely ruin your night and cost a bomb if you have to find somewhere else last minute.
All in all, the biggest fail to avoid on this stag weekends ideas fails to avoid list is getting overly stressed. Don’t worry yourself sick about the little things, as long as you have a good group of lads and somewhere to go you’re bound to have an epic last night of freedom.
