Stag Weekend Parties
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 association was due to the fact that stags were highly virulent in their abilities to pursue a female.
This tradition is observed even until now and will more likely be observed for another few years. 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. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. 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.
This special tradition is not totally different in other countries. Generally, the day starts with a casual get together coupled with light but fun activities. The activities part is highly dependent on the region or locality. But the general notion is that the groom can get to do unusual things that are not experienced by a married man. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. The common thing is having unlimited drinks at this party.

To make the stag party more special, it may be a good option for your friends to have it out of town! This may offer you more options for the activities involved but if you are not sure then make sure to consult an events specialist.
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. You would also need to consider if the groom is not comfortable with having naughty night activities so you can totally opt to stop in the daytime activities and just enjoy a night filled with solidarity and fun with bro conversations. 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. 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.
