Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan, the UK’s most Beautiful couple (she is a real stunner and he is more ripped then a pair of jeans from Latvia) have revealed where they are going to celebrate their pre nuptials.

I know you cannot take the suspense anymore, so thanks to The Mirror for spilling the beans I can reveal that Michelle Keegan, former Coronation Street Star who now commands roles in her very own ITV dramas, I cannot name any as I dont really like the ITV dramas or Coronation Street for that matter. Sorry back to Michelle Keegan who always looks incredible every time she sets foot into the public eye…..

OK, Michelle Keegan is going to Dubai for her hen weekend whilst Mark Wright celebrates in Vegas, where else?

There, you heard it here first, unless you read the Mirror’s article then this is possibly the second place you have read this amazing bit of celebrity news or gossip, now back to your corn flakes.

 

Stag Prank Goes Viral

February 5th, 2015

Another Stag Do prank goes viral, this time the crime scene is at Budapest airport and the prank weapon, a dildo!

The poor unsuspecting stag was on his way home from a Stag Do in Budapest when his bag was searched by Hungarian airport security.

The airport security spotted a bottle of water by the x-ray machine in the stag’s bag which was planted by the ‘Stag Do Prankster’ (he did this so the stag would be stopped). However, also strapped to the bottle of water was a giant Didldo!

The whole event was filmed by the prankster to an eruption of laughter from the stag party watching on.

The stag himself took it in all good faith – you can watch the video by clicking on the link below:

Sin City For Ant & Dec’s Stag Do

January 27th, 2015

Ant and Dec have been spotted in Las Vegas on a mate’s Stag Do just before they picked up their National Television awards.

They were spotted cruising the infamous Las Vegas strip before eating at Gordon Ramsay’s Burgr restaurant which is in the Planet Hollywood Casino.

The popular pair was also papped playing golf and where also joined by fellow celeb Jonathan Wilkes.

Some people are saying Dec is getting inspiration for his up and coming inevitable stag weekend, however if he’s in need of inspiration he needs to head over to the DesignaVenture website, stag do section, where he’ll find loads of inspiration, activities and ideas for the best stag do known to man, in fact what am I thinking it should be Ant heading over to our website as there’s no doubt who will be Dec’s best man!

The above details are courtesy of an article on the Daily Mail website, you also find loads of great pics of the lads having a great time.

Fancy Dress Lands Stag Party In Hot Water

January 9th, 2015

According to an article in the Daily Mail, just before Christmas a stag party in Chester where seen storming shops and restaurants dressed up like plastic figurine toy soldiers performing military style drills. The stag do fancy dress look was complete with plastic toy guns, green paint and green plastic helmets.

The police were called when the stag group stormed Nandos rolling around the floor and shouting ‘clear the area’. The party were then given a stern talking to by the police and all their plastic weaponry was confiscated.

This prank apparently split social media with some members of the public saying people just don’t have a good sense of humour whilst others saying it’s in bad taste especially when, at the time, the Sydney siege was going on.

In our option this stag prank should not be copied, especially after all that terrible business going on in France.

For other fantastic stag do fancy dress ideas go on to the DesignaVenture blog, we also have a top 10 on stag pranks.

DesignaVenture’s Happy New Year Message

January 5th, 2015

DesignaVenture Logo

 

DesignaVenture would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, but what does that mean? Are we just saying that? Or do we really mean it?

OK, let’s get things straight first of all, of course we really mean it, we are genuinely an ethical company, we love dealing with the British stag dos and hen parties*, we get a thrill from helping people and when customers advise us they have had the best weekend ever, well that’s just the icing on the cake.

Why ethical? Well, we believe in giving our customers the best possible service, going the extra mile so you feel you get great value for money (currently, we are rated 93% on trustpilot.co.uk from 187 reviews), we believe in treating our customers the same way we would like to be treated.

We also want you to feel that you can approach us with any question, no matter how silly it may seem, let’s face it, putting together a weekend for a group such as a stag do can be a fairly daunting task so you’re going to need as much help as you can get.

*We don’t just deal with stags and hens, for example; we have customers who book their football team weekends away through us, customers booking activities only for  groups of 2 or 4 people all the way up to 300 people for a corporate event, birthday surprises to activity weekends away for reunions or just for the heck of it ,we deal with thousands of people each year creating unforgettable memories.

So, we would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year, hoping you will find 2015 full of amazing memories, incredible experiences and as peaceful as Switzerland.
