Police Involved In a Stag Do Brawl

December 2nd, 2014

HandcuffedWe don’t usually write about the negative side of our industry but we couldn’t resist the irony of this news article.

In November, seven Metropolitan Police officers were arrested in Lithuania whilst on a stag do for brawling. They were seen being put into police cars handcuffed with bloody noses and stumbling around according to this article on the Mirror’s website.

This is outrageous, especially when 99% of our British stag dos happen with out incident, oh the IRONY.

Back to the story, the police stag do ended paying a 5,000 Lithuanian Lita bail, which is about £1,000 in our money and if the group are charged, they will have to return to Vilnius for trial.

A met office spokesman said that they are looking into the incident without the 7 stag do members being suspended, however if the group are charged this will be evaluated!

Zayn’s Off To Vegas For Stag

November 20th, 2014

The internet is frantic with news stories on Zayn Malik’s up and coming stag do, Zayn Malik is in One Direction and is engaged to Perrie Edwards from Little Mix.

The 1D boys were being interviews by an OK reporter when Niall Horan from the band blurted out that they are planning to take Zayn to Vegas.

Las Vegas is the mecca for British stag dos and American bachelor nights and even if your in the world’s biggest boy band and the world is your oyster, Las Vegas is still the destination of choice.

Remember a couple of years ago when Marvin from JLS was wandering around Vegas with a midget handcuffed to him?

2 Men arranging a stag do in the bar

Christmas is coming and the Geese are getting fat! Our wallets aren’t, they’re loosing pounds like contestants on I’m a Celebrity!

So we at DesignaVenture have come up with an ingenious way of helping you book your stag do, hen party or activity break without having to dig into your Christmas fund. Here is a true to life scenario to help you understand this incredible offer:

Take Dave from Dagenham, you know him, Dagenham Dave, he has a rather expensive couple of months coming up. He has just got married and has a child on the way, he now has two families to buy for this Christmas (his own and his new wife’s family) and on top of all this, Pete, his best mate from school, has just asked him to be his best man, which Dave gallantly said yes.

Now Pete, (the groom to be) has his heart set on a stag do in Bournemouth which includes Rage Buggies, Bubble Football, 2 nights hotel accommodation and entry into a load of bars and clubs, Dave contacted DesignaVenture who were very helpful and offered him a package at a 2014 price for a 2015 stag do, and all he had to do to get it booked was to pay a £30.00 deposit. As he is going in July, his mates will need to pay their £30.00 deposit by the 02nd February*.

Dave is now well happy, not only has he just booked his best mate’s stag do for just a £30.00 deposit, he can also share the booking online through his membership area with all Pete’s mates so they can pay DesignaVenture directly saving him loads of time and hassle.

Now Dave can sit back and relax over Christmas knowing he has already got one job sorted for 2015 and that’s his best mate’s stag do, what a hero.

*Balance is due 5 weeks before your departure date

Build Yourself Up A Wicked Stag Weekend

November 12th, 2014

Build Your Own Stag Do Example

Have you looked at our Build Your Own section of the DesignaVenture website?

It’s an incredible feature and unlike many of our other fellow competitors you don’t need to sign up or sign in it’s there for you to create your very own incredible stag do.

You can then save your Stag Do creation, share it with your mates, book it online or enquire about it via our amazing website.

From Prague to North Wales, you can choose your accommodation type, what you want to do in the day (Rage Buggies to Bubble Football) and your night time activities. You can also bypass any section if you don’t need accommodation or daytime activities.

You can watch your masterpiece add up on the right handside with the option of taking off activities or accommodation if they are no longer required.

I would say this, but I don’t think there is another build your own Stag Do section to a website like it on the net, it’s pure genius!

There is a rumour that hotels in leading hen and stag destinations such as Bristol, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Bournemouth are steadily putting their prices up due to high demand for weekends, well I am here to put you straight, unfortunately it’s true, which ultimately means your stag and hen dos are going to cost more next year, whether you book it through a stag company like DesignaVenture or go DIY.

So my friends, DesignaVenture has come up with this incredible offer, a once in a lifetime, never to be repeated offer (well not until November next year that is), book your 2015 Stag Do or hen party now for just £60 and everyone in the group will pay a 2014 price, saving a whole load of money.

Good luck, and if you need help on deciding what to do, where to go, how to put your trousers on properly, call us now on 01432 830880, incredibly stag do ideas can be found here, and here for hen party ideas.

Mankini Now Banned in Blackpool

October 21st, 2014

Stag Dressed in a MankiniBlackpool is (surprisingly) the second Stag Do seaside destination to put in a total ban on the men in Mankinis pointing specifically at stag parties. This ban which is also known as Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) can also be applied to any inappropriate dress worn by stag or hen parties.

2 Years ago the Newquay police got fed up with stags turning up in Mankinis so they were the first seaside town to put in a total ban on Mankinis and now Blackpool has followed suit.

Blackpool has always been (in my eyes) a little risqué, with the Kiss Me Quick hats in the 80′s and the hedonistic reputation of the 90′s and 00′s however the town council has decided to exercise their anti-lout powers to ban inappropriate dress.

Opponents fear such a move would be similar to criminalising women for wearing shorts skirts or showing off to much cleavage.

Other people think it’s a great idea and would be a positive move to cleaning up Blackpool’s image, making it a more family friendly British seaside town.

If you do find yourself in a Mankini or inappropriately dressed in Blackpool whilst on a Stag Do or hen weekend or if that’s just what you like to wear, there is a big chance you can be fined on the spot. Just so you know these fines range from £70 to £100.

Best Man Saves Bride’s Father

October 17th, 2014

There’s a fantastic article in the Mirror sharing a story of a group of guys on a stag do to Bournemouth and whilst they were karting the bride to be’s father had a heart attack!

The story doesn’t currently sound too fantastic, but what happened after makes it a story to learn from and shows how important the message from the British Heart Foundation is trying to get across, in their campaign a Nation of Lifesavers.

The best man Michael Scott put together a brilliant stag do to Bournemouth which included outdoor race karting and whilst they were in the middle of the race, he watched John Statham, father of the bride’s kart veer off the track, through the tyre wall and straight into a tree, John had had a heart attack.

Quick thinking by Michael (best man) and Stewart Jones (a former paramedic), issued CPR  until the paramedics arrived saving John’s life and he was able to walk his daughter down the Aisle just three weeks later.

Luckily, the best man Michael, three weeks earlier completed a free British Heart Foundation CPR training course at his local fire station.

If you would like to know more about how you can learn CPR go here you will never know when you’ll need it!
