When it comes to giving the stag or hen a proper send off a night down the pub just isn't enough. A exciting stag weekend or luxury hen weekend away lasting 1, 2 or 3 nights is now the norm so it becomes a 'mini holiday' that must include some proper activities.
The best advice is to start planning the event as early as possible. At least 3 months before the weekend is going to take place is advised.
Start by deciding how many and who to invite. Make a list of the stag or hen's friends and family members. It's best not to get too carried away and remember that they must all get on well together. Once you have made a list of who you are going to invite on the weekend it may be a good idea to phone everyone to get an idea of when they are free and how much they wish to spend.
When you know who is coming and what the budget is you can start collecting deposits from everyone. You should ask for at least 20% from each of the group to ensure that they are serious about going on the weekend. That way you will not have to chase them up later or end up paying out yourself.
Next you need to decide where to have the weekend. This will depend on how far everyone will be able to travel and if members of the group live in different parts of the country it may be best to have the weekend somewhere central to everyone.
Popular locations include Bristol, London, Nottingham, Newcastle, Brighton, Manchester and Liverpool. Take a look at some of the locations to see if they offer the sort of activities you are looking for.
Once you have chosen the location for the weekend you can decide on how many nights you are going to stay for and what activities you are going to book.
Choosing an activity for a stag or hen weekend to make sure you say farewell to your freedom with proper style.
Popular activities for the day that are available at most locations are dance hen parties, paintball games, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, spa days and karting.
