What is a Sten Do?

What is a Sten Do (BANNER)

We all know what stag dos and hen parties are… but what about a “Sten do”? We’re going to go over exactly what this increasingly popular term means and why you should consider having one!

Sten Do Definition

In a nutshell, a sten do is a joint hen and stag do, where the bride and groom-to-be celebrate together before the wedding. Most commonly, sten dos are celebrated when the stag and hen both share the same friendship group, therefore making more sense to all celebrate together as a combined stag and hen do, rather than separately. As well as all that being said, this can be a great way to save a few pennies before the big day too!

What is a Hag Do?

You may not have guessed, but a hag do is essentially another name for a sten do, being another type of celebration that’s skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years. It is also used commonly as another name for gay and lesbian stag & hen dos.
