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 word stag symbolizes one’s 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. 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. No bride would want their groom to have a terrible hangover during the wedding ceremony.
The tradition is more or less similar throughout different countries. Generally, the day starts with a casual get together coupled with light but fun activities. The activities is based on where the groom is from. But the general notion is that the groom can get to do unusual things that are not experienced by a married man. For instance, it involves various pranks such as getting the groom to strip down and parading him around the club or street. The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this party.
The same thing all over the world is to have unlimited drinks!
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 tons of options that you can choose in planning daytime activities for the whole gang given that you share the same preferences. 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. A good option for a naught-free night is to check out five-star restaurants that offer acoustic jamming sessions. 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 because when you get married there will be less nights of partying and socializing and the groom is more likely to be focused on starting a new life.
