What Makes A Great Stag Do?

Friday, May 11th, 2012

With the stag do season well and truly kicking off and many hundreds of thousands of partygoers hitting popular stag destinations worldwide, what makes a good stag do?

First and foremost your mates, everyone should be in good spirits and excited about a boys weekend away with their close buddies, so make sure they are all kept up to date with what’s going on and where you’re going as this will make everyone feel part of the group.

Lots to do in the day is also a good sign of a great stag weekend, if the guys want to drink all day you may find quite a few peaking by 4pm and not showing up for the evening’s entertainments, so try and book a stag daytime activity or two to keep the boys in check.

Bars and clubs booked for the evening will also help your stag do go off without a hiccup, the last thing you want to be doing is walking around a city at 10.30pm looking for a venue for your large group of lads to get into, so book your clubs and bars in advance.

Make sure the stag has a great weekend; after all he is the reason why you are celebrating.

Make Your Stag Do A Legacy

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

The press and government are banging on about the Olympics and how it’s going to make a lasting legacy for London and Great Britain as a whole, that sort of speak should be used in conjunction with your up and coming stag do.

A legacy basically means information passed down to generations to come for them to be proud of, wouldn’t that be great if your stag do stories became a legacy not only down the pub but also through your family tree.

The story gets passed down to your kids and then their kids and so on.

What would you have to do to achieve such a feat?

I couldn’t possibly tell you as that is the best man or groom’s domain, if it was my idea it wouldnt be such a legacy!

If you have kids and one or more of them are boys their first questions to you when they book their stag do is what you got up to on yours, so make sure you have some good clean stories.

Just make sure your stag do is in good hands by booking it through a desirable and trustworthy stag do organiser such as DesignaVenture, and everything else will fall into place.

Stag Dos Are A Maze Of Different Ways

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Confused by the title? Stag dos are a maze and if you have never arranged one before there are now a hell of a lot of choices.

Where do you start?

Usually talking to the groom is the best place to start, after all it is his celebration, unless it’s a secret, then talking to the ushers, best men etc to find out what everyone has in mind.

Where do you go?

Ultimately this comes down to how much time you have off, budget and more importantly what you want to do, white water rafting on a stag do to Amsterdam is not an option.

How much is too much?

Your questions are now coming thick and fast!! Too much is down to how much people in your stag group can afford. Too much to me is doing 2 full days of activities, with drinking on top never mind about the expense you’ll be whacked.

The stag wants maximum people with minimum effort.

Demanding….Anyway, you should arrange something that will suit everyone. Booking a Golfing stag do is always a bad move, particularly if you want everyone invited to go as you are just tuning out all the non golfers.

Keep the price down and book something that everyone will enjoy, motorised is pretty popular or just bars, clubs and accommodation is also a great move.

The stag is not bothered about numbers, he wants something he is interested in

It’s his call at the end of the day, your job is to make it happen. Most of his close friends will do whatever he wants to do anyway.

Whatever your manifesto, using a professional stag do organiser like DesignaVenture will help your cause as they will have access to hundreds of hotels, activity sites and clubs.

Pain Vs Pleasure

Walking around all night on your stag do and not being able to get into any bar or club, as you are an all male party.

Booking your stag do through DesignaVenture and walking to the font of the queue and getting in without any hassle.

Turning up at your hotel and finding out your not booked in, as Dave forgot to confirm it.

Turning up at the wrong stag do activity site in Oxfordshire.

Turning up at the right activity site, as DesignaVenture emailed the details to your smart phone.

So what ever gives you your pleasure or pain, leave it in the bedroom and just use the pleasure option whilst booking your stag do.

The Secret To A Successful Stag Do

Friday, October 28th, 2011

If you are ever in the position of arranging a stag do then the next few paragraphs are going to hopefully help the cause.

Communication is key, in order to keep your stag house in order you need people to know how much, what they are doing, where they are going and what date and time.

Most people these days have a smart phone, it’s big news, so use them to the best of their abilities. And if your mate is better in technology then you are let him help you out.

This will help you have the most fluid stag do ever.
