Planning An Original Stag Night.
Author : Wedding Photography Select
Article Date : 27 Apr 2015


For the best man, the stag do is arguably more important than the wedding itself. This is your chance to send the groom off in style, by organising the kind of night that's talked about for years to come.

A great stag do should be affordable, memorable, and most of all original. So how do you plan a stag unlike any other?

Paintball is played out, European mini-breaks have lost their charm, and the old fashioned 'getting drunk and falling over' routine is just going to happen regardless of where you are. Instead, tailor your stag do around the groom's specific interests with a twist. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

For the petrol-head groom

Anyone can book a go-carting session, but for a really original driving experience, go off road. There are dozens of companies across the UK offering everything from Segway safaris to 4x4 buggy trails, and even tank driving, where you get to drive an actual military tank. Maybe best to plan this activity before hitting the pub.

For the comic-loving groom

Comic-Con has gone mainstream over the past few years, and there is now one in every city. Scope out your nearest comic book convention, or find out which one the groom's favourite writer will be appearing at. Plan ahead by ordering a set of matching character costumes for the stag and his mates.

For the sporty groom

Boost the groom's ego (or take him down a peg or two) by subjecting your stag party to a grueling workout in extreme conditions. Try the ubiquitous Tough Mudder, or an alternative boot camp experience (Zombie Bootcamp is set to be the next big thing, and yes, it is exactly what you're imagining). Set a few wagers to keep it interesting (first to give up, first to fall over, first over the finish line) and settle up in the pub later while you discuss your war wounds.

For the party-animal groom

If the stag is at his best on the dance floor, give him the ultimate night out. Treat him to DJ-ing lesson during the day (most big clubs offer this, for a price of course), and then arrange for him to spend a bit of time in the DJ booth when the club starts to fill up.

For the caveman groom

Wilderness training is available in most rural areas, and involves a couple of days spent in the wild, learning how to fend for yourself, caveman-style. That means foraging for edible plants, making fire, building a shelter, and hunting wild animals. Bring your own booze, obviously.
