Don't - No communicating with the outside world. What happens on the stag, stays on the stag. In the world of social media and uploading photos to Facebook every few minutes, make sure status updates are kept to a minimum and there are also zero texts or phone calls to WAGS, especially the bride-to-be.
Do – the saying ‘location, location, location’ is perfect for stag parties, pick a good one! You can head down to your local any night of the week, so for the ultimate stag party, pick a new watering hole. If you can’t afford to pack all the lads onto a budget airline and head abroad, pick a new city here in the UK. Do your research though, including a decent daytime activity.
DO – make the groom stand out from the rest of the pack. No matter how much he doesn’t want to wear something daft, it’s going to happen. We have some fantastic fancy dress costumes here at Party Fever, from Maid Marion, to Disco Fever jumpsuits and ladies police officer costumes. Of course, it doesn’t have to be a ladies costume; we have WWF wrestlers, cowboys, roman warriors and even Elvis!
Don’t – make sure the groom doesn’t know what you’ve got planned. He’ll be curious, but make sure he’s kept in the dark on the activities. If he continues to ask, tell him that marriage is full of surprises, so you’re just getting him ready for his future missus!
Don’t – underestimate the recovery period. It might ‘traditional’ to hold the stag party right before the wedding, but we’ve all seen The Hangover haven’t we? Have it a few weeks, or even months before the big day. A missing groom is never good, and one who looks worse for wear is perhaps even worse, with the bride, and the mother in law!
