Celebrating Stag Weekend
Stag weekend parties are part of a tradition that has been around even back to the Roman Civilization. Some people often wonder what a stag party is but to put it simply, a stag party is UK’s equivalent of America’s bachelor party. The term stag was coined so that it refers to one’s manliness. This entire correlation was based on the common knowledge that stags are quite very capable of wooing their female counterparts.
Even now, this tradition is still observed by many people and it seems as though it is not going to die down anytime soon. In fact, it has taken a more detailed and extravagant form. In the past, stag nights are prior to the exact wedding which is more appropriate for its term. In these days, people schedule the bachelor parties days before the wedding celebration. This is due to the fact that brides are more reluctant to have their future husbands go into the wedding ceremony still half intoxicated with alcohol.
The tradition is more or less similar throughout different countries. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities part is highly dependent on the region or locality. But the general notion is that the groom can get to do unusual things that are not experienced by a married man. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. The same thing all over the world is to have unlimited drinks!
But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
If you are thinking of having an unusual stag party, you may consider to fly to some exciting destination to hold this event. This will definitely open up new fun-filled activities for you so be sure to hook up with an events coordinator.
There are a whole lot of other options fit for your daytime activities but just make sure that it suits the groom and the whole team of guys as well. These activities include go karting, rock climbing, parasailing, wind surfing, and paintball. You would also need to consider if the groom is not comfortable with having naughty night activities so you can totally opt to stop in the daytime activities and just enjoy a night filled with solidarity and fun with bro conversations. You can choose to go to five-star restaurants and enjoy the food while listening to relaxing music. It really depends on the whole gang’s preferences and especially the groom.
In a way, stag weekends are designed to give the groom and the bride a break from all the tedious planning and wedding preparations so that they can be well-rested before the big day. This is actually a good idea before the groom settles down and will have less chances of saying yes to a party night.
