Stag weekend parties are part of a tradition that has been around even back to the Roman Civilization. A stag party is not really different from Australia’s bucks’party and USA’s bachelor party. The term stag is often associated with manliness. This correlation is really old and was based on the fact that stags were supposed to be well capable of wooing the female counterpart.
Even now, this tradition is still observed by many people and it seems as though it is not going to die down anytime soon. Actually, stag parties have reinvented itself to be more elaborate, charming, wild, and extravagant. In previous years, it used to be more about a night-long party the day before the wedding which is more apt for a stag night in some sense. However these days, the boys responsible for planning the celebration is more careful to schedule it weeks prior to the actual wedding day. 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.
Other countries have more or less the same kind of activities prepared for stag nights. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities is more likely to be dependent on the region or place. The general concept is to have the groom experience some things that are not allowed for a typical married man. For instance, it involves various pranks such as getting the groom to strip down and parading him around the club or street. But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this 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 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. Keep in mind that you can limit it to daytime activities especially if the groom is uncomfortable of having perky and kinky nightouts. 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. 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.
