Michelle Keegan Plans Two Hen Parties

July 22nd, 2014

Michelle Keegan & Mark WrightAccording to the Belfast Telegraph, the former Coronation Street star is planning two hen parties but there’s no rush as she is not getting married to Mark Wright until next year.

The big hen party will be abroad however she doesn’t mention where, and then she is planning on going on a spa weekend.

So as she describes it “a really mad one and then a simple, nice girlie one”

I know quite a few hen parties (as you can imagine) and this is pretty much the norm. Where there’s a raucous weekend for mainly best friends and friends of friends and then a more sedate chilled affair for the mothers, aunties and bridesmaids.

However I am not tarring all hen parties with one brush, some brides will have loads of celebrations and others will just have just the one.

Book Your 2015 Stag Do Now

July 15th, 2014

It’s July 2014 and the Stag Do season is rocking like a rowing boat in a force 9 gale (one for the yachting enthusiasts), this is a great time to reflect and compare on stag groups booking last minute and groups booking their Stag Do early.

Stag parties booking last minute are fine, we are finding availability, however it’s harder to find their first choice of activities, hotels and even nightlife as a lot of the beds and activity sessions are booked up. We are also finding stag groups  are smaller as not everyone is available last minute.

So in hindsight, stag groups who book early will be more organised, all their first choice of activities and hotel are available and more people will attend as you are giving them a lot more notice.

Here’s your chance, if you are looking for a Stag Do for 2015 to ‘grab the bull STAG by the horns’ and get your weekend booked now.

If you are looking at a UK stag destination or an abroad Stag Do without flights, then booking early couldn’t be easier, all you have to do is stick down a £60 deposit, advise us of a rough idea of group size and then share the booking online with your mates and get them to commit by paying a £30 per person deposit online.

Booking this early, WE don’t need to know your definite numbers and YOU don’t need to get your fingers dirty by having to collect all the cash in off the boys, they can pay direct, online or over the telephone making it even easier then a Peppa Pig Puzzle.

So use hindsight, book early and get your 2015 Stag Do licked.

Our website has more Stag Do Ideas then an Ice Cream Man has sprinkles, so get yourself over to the stag section of the DesignaVenture website and get well organised.

Man Saved By His Own Stag Party

July 2nd, 2014

According to an article in the Independent website, Declan Bolger was celebrating a surprise Stag Do with his mates playing football in Dalymount Park, Ireland, when he collapsed and had a heart attack.

Luckily, 3 of his mates on the Stag Do were fully trained in CPR and took it in turns to minister this life saving procedure for 10 minutes before the ambulance arrived.

According to this article Declan (stag) who plays for various football teams was very fit and anyone would have him on their football team.

When he arrived at the hospital they found that one of his arteries was blocked, apparently it was a ticking time bomb and it was lucky it happened with so many people around him who were trained in first aid.

Declan get’s married in September and we want to wish him all the best for the future.
