Advice To All Best Men or Grooms To Be

Best men, grooms to be, stag do organisers people of the Internet.

If you are looking to book a stag do or group weekend away just one-piece advice before booking, try and gage your group’s budget.

Too many stag weekends are being affected by best men and grooms who want a full on weekend with all the whistles and bells, isolating some group members who don’t want to spend the money.

If you want as many people on aboard as possible, try and gage everyone’s budget and book the break that falls within that budget.

Alternatively give them options such as the package without accommodation or the weekend without the daytime activities, giving more people access to your stag weekend.

So the next time you book your stag do and loads of people drop out you have probably over estimated everyone’s budget.
