Stag Weekend Parties
Stag parties are an essential piece of culture and history ever since the emergence of 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 is often associated with 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 actuality, stag parties have evolved to be more enjoyable and more luxurious than before. In the past, stag nights are prior to the exact wedding which is more appropriate for its term. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. Brides are more firm in not having their grooms have hangover the day after since it is after all their special day.
This special tradition is not totally different in other 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. However, the idea is that the groom should experience some things that a married man will not be able to do. 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.
To make the stag party more special, it may be a good option for your friends to have it out of town! This is a good opportunity to deviate from the norm.
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. Examples of these activities are diving, snorkelling, sailing, motorbiking, parasailing, wind surfing, and water skiing. Of course, if you are not the adventurous type of guy then you can totally stop here. You can actually skip the notorious night by going to a karaoke stall and sing your night out with a couple of beers in tow. You really have to have a consensus and bear in mind that the opinion of the groom matters a lot.
Essentially, stag weekends are a wonderful way for everyone to have fun and unwind the body, mind and soul before the wedding day. This is actually a good idea before the groom settles down and will have less chances of saying yes to a party night.
