Celebrating Stag Weekend
Stag parties are an essential piece of culture and history ever since the emergence of 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 association was due to the fact that stags were highly virulent in their abilities to pursue a female.
Until today, this tradition is still at large and by no means it has no plans of being forgotten any moment soon. Actually, stag parties have reinvented itself to be more elaborate, charming, wild, and extravagant. In the previous years, stag parties are more of the night before the wedding celebration which in some way makes sense according to its term. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. 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. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities is based on where the groom is from. 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. 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 add a special twist to the aprty, you may choose to hold it in another country than your own. This will definitely open up new fun-filled activities for you so be sure to hook up with an events coordinator.
There are various kinds of activities available for you and your mates although make sure that you have reached a consensus before partaking in any of the activity. 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. You really have to have a consensus and bear in mind that the opinion of the groom matters a lot.
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. The whole point of the stag party is to have a chance to have fun because when the groom ties the knot there are less chances of having fun.
