Mankini Now Banned in Blackpool

Tuesday, 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.

Hen Pregnant By Dwarf Stripper

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Mini Boys Advert in SpainAccording to an article in the Telegraph, a Spanish woman has had to admit the unthinkable to her new husband after giving birth to a baby with dwarfism.

This new Spanish bride had to fight with her demons and admit to her new husband after giving birth to her baby with dwarfism, that she had had sex with a dwarf on her hen party, none of her close friends or family knew!

Her husband thought the baby was his and was conceived on their honeymoon!

Please also note that dwarfs are known as mini-boys in Spain, (very interesting name) if this is of some sort of interest to you, a video on Youtube is available – here.

It’s very popular for Spanish hen and stag parties to hire dwarfs as entertainers and there are many websites offering the services of mini-boys (so funny) in Spain.

We are not sure of the outcome and we salute her for being honest with her husband (only for being honest).

BBC 2′s Stag Expected In 2015

Friday, August 15th, 2014

BBC 2 LogoA comedy for BBC 2 called ‘Stag’, written by George Kay and believed to be produced by the The Wrong Mans producer Jim Field Smith is set to hit our screens in 2015.

This six-part series is set in Scotland when a group on a Stag Do start to get mysteriously killed off, I know it doesn’t sound very funny but if it’s produced in the same way as The Wrong Mans we are in for a gripping and hilarious comedy series.

We love comedy at DesignaVenture and when it’s themed with something we love best ‘Stag Dos’ we are more excited than a puppy that’s just found it’s tail.

You can find more details about this new show ‘Stag’ on the British Comedy Guide website.

A Crazy Way To Fund Your Fancy Dress Wardrobe

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Man in fancy dress costume dressed like an old style burglarA man from Sowerby Bridge near Halifax stole £21,000 from a firm he worked for to purchase fancy dress items for a Stag Do, now this is how it first reads on the Halifax Courier website.

However, he obviously only used some of the £21,000 he stole to buy fancy dress items for a Stag Do he was going on, no one can spend £21,000 on fancy dress, surely?

Reading further on, this article actually states he only used some of the money to fund his fancy dress wardrobe, it doesn’t state what else he bought.

We we were wandering if the fancy dress items he bought included a stripy top, black trousers, a black balaclava and a bag with swag written?

The man in question (who now has a new job) went to court and received 275 hours community service and a 10-month suspended prison sentence from the judge, no comment!

The stag group has been seen in the VIP area of the Hed Kandi Beach Pool party taking selfies with fans, walking around with their tops off and laughing and joking with each other, how a stag do should be celebrated.

The boys were seen at Ocean Beach, San Antonio which is a huge  hit with other celebrities over the years such as Abbey Clancy, Professor Green, Sheridan Smith, Tinie Tempah, Jack Whitehall, the list goes on.

Book Your 2015 Stag Do Now

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Stag drinking a glass of wine and chilling

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.
