McBusted Stag Do Picture

It’s that time of year when every celebrity and his dog are seen celebrating their hen or stag do in Ibiza and Danny Jones from McBusted is no exception.

According to an article on the MailOnline, Danny Jones has been seen in Ibiza soaking up the rays and drinking with his McBusted boys generally having a fantastic time.

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.

Danny Jones is due to marry log-term girlfriend Georgia Horsley later in this year, we at DesignaVenture want to wish them all the luck in the world for the future.

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.

Manchester Evening News Saves Stag Do

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Imagine going on a Stag Do to Benidorm without the stag!

That nearly happened to poor old Rob Outram, who’s passport hadn’t arrived back from the passport office and feared the worse however, in stepped the Manchester Evening News.

The Manchester Evening News not only featured the story on their website which got loads of coverage but according to this article they contacted officials who then summoned Rob to the Liverpool passport office to collect his passport.

He feared he would miss his Stag Do and Honeymoon but now he is going to be able to attend them both.

Before he was summoned to the Liverpool passport office he showed good spirits by saying that the group has to go with to without him, as they have saved up for this Stag Weekend to Benidorm since March.

He is due to marry Becky Bieganski next month and then honeymoon in Barbados.

We want to wish the happy couple all the happiness in the world.

A Bodged Stag Do Tattoo

Monday, June 30th, 2014

According to an article in the Gazette Live website, Mark Bythway had a tattoo done on a Stag Do in Majorca, which seems pretty normal, a nice souvenir from a Stag Weekend he is suppose to remember for the rest of his life, but not when the tattoo up his arm states:

“Bodge Loves Car Boots”.

Mark Bythway who’s nickname is Bodge, as his grandfather named him a bodged baby when he was born, has now been ordered by fiancé to either get it covered up or removed before their wedding in August.

This unforgettable stag tattoo is now on the dedicated bad tattoos on twitter and has caused quite a stir.

In this article he also admitted that this body art doesn’t tell a lie, he actually loves car boots, every cloud!

A Historic Stag Do

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

A group of mates on a Stag Do in New Mexico discovered whilst walking along a beach, a 3 million year old skull of a Stegomastodon, a relative of a woolly mammoth to you and I!

According to an article on the Telegraph’s website, the American bachelor party were hiking in Elephant Butte Lake State Park which is near Albuquerque when they saw a bone sticking out the sand. The boys starting digging and found a 453 kg skull which they thought was a woolly mammoth.

The stag group took a picture of this mammoth skull and sent it to the New Mexico of Natural History and science, who sent their best palaeontologist (always wanted to spell that, still can’t) who confirmed it was about 3 million years old.

Now this Stag Do may not rock your boat as you would prefer lap dancing clubs or high octane motor sports, but it’s a great story to tell your wedding guests, possibly the only story you could tell your wedding guests, what goes on tour and all that!

Bill Murray Gives Good Advice To A Stag Do

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Bill Murray crashed a Stag Do in South Carolina the other day giving the group some priceless advice.

He starts by telling the stag group that funerals are not for the dead but for the living!

He then explains to the bachelor party; if you meet a girl and you think she is the one, before getting married, buy 2 plane tickets and travel around the world to places which are hard to get in and hard to get out.

When you arrive back into JFK and you still love that woman, marry her at the airport.

We think that is great advice but it’s a bit late for the groom on his Stag Do!
