A stag do is an important time in any man’s life, especially the groom. This means that there is plenty of pressure on the best man (or whoever is planning things) to get it right. There are lots of things to think about when it comes to planning a stag do, however we are here to help you out.
Why not take a look through our list of things that you should try to never forget when you are planning a stag do? All to help you to have the best time ever, no matter what you do.
Always set the date first
It can be hard to know where to start when it comes to organising a stag do. However, the first thing that you really should have in mind is to set a date. That way everyone can get it in the diary and you know rough numbers on who can come. Think about planning it relatively close to the wedding, but still with a little bit of wiggle room just in case anything happens (we are talking eyebrows being shaved off or hair being dyed) that is going to need time to disappear.
Discuss the budget
Another important thing to do at the beginning of all the planning is setting a budget. It can be hard to talk about money, especially for those who do not have a lot, but having an idea of how much people can spend in the early stages can really help to plan things.
Get everyone to commit
Once you have a date and a destination in mind, you need to make sure that you get everyone to commit. The last thing that you are going to want is to book things only for everyone to drop out and leave you in the lurch. The best way to get people to commit is to ask for a deposit up-front, that way, only the people who are definitely coming will be a yes.
Keep every updated
Of course you won’t want to be a stag do bore when it comes to planning. But you need to make sure that you keep everyone in the loop about all the things that are going on. Keeping the other stags up together on what is happening is going to help to make sure that they feel included and also help them to come up with any ideas if you need it.
Never forget the small stuff
The small stuff may seem, well small, but it can often make or break a good stag do. You need to make sure that you try your best to remember all the smaller details such as transport, kitties, if you are organising one and of course where or what you are going to eat.
