Okay, boys, it’s time to find yourself some incredible activities for a stag day. One of the lads is getting married, and you could not be happier for him. But, you’ve also got to make sure that you are giving him the best possible send-off before he ties the knot with his lady. How do you do it?
Well, you’ve got to make sure that you’ve got some inspirational ideas for activities. Some stuff that’ll keep people happy and make sure that the groom has a good time regardless. It’s not always easy, but we’re going to help you make it happen. So let’s get right down to business.
What’s more macho than some guns and some shooting? It’s a popular activity that a lot of people enjoy on the weekends and such, but it’s usually reserved for the wealthiest out there. What you’re going to want to do is make sure that you’ve selected a shooting range which offers excellent value for money so that you can spend a day up there with the groom.
It’s a pretty simple concept to try and get your head around. You have targets and take turns trying to shoot them, and everybody wins. Just make sure to be careful, because the last thing that you want to happen is to wind up shooting someone!
The outdoors seems to be a pretty popular theme at the moment, although we’re not sure why sometimes! We always thought that hiring out a female stripper was perhaps a more enjoyable affair, but who are we to judge? Anyway, there’s no doubt that an adventure weekend could be exactly what you need to take a good weekend with the lads and turn it into a great stag day.
A lot of camps offer so much for you. You can either go for a place which has a setup of its own, or you can take some kit and go. The choice is entirely yours. Whatever you wind up doing, you’re going to be testing yourself and connecting with your friends in the best possible way.
A Road Trip
If you’ve got the vehicle and you’ve got the right friends, then why not hit the road and explore some of the local areas that you live in. It’s not difficult to do by any means, and it gives you the potential to have a great time well away from the problems of the world.
The great thing about a road trip is that you can go literally anywhere and there’s no limit. After all, no one can tell you that you can’t use the roads. You can explore whatever you like, whenever you want, and it’s a big part of what attracts people to the idea of a road trip.
If you do not consider yourself to be a fan of the open road, what about the open water? Boat trips are an excellent way for friends to connect and experience life out on the ocean, which can be very rewarding if you can appreciate the value of hard work.
The level of sophistication which you choose for your boat will depend entirely on what you consider to be a suitable experience, but rest assured there are luxury cruise liners or traditional sailing boats available to rent all across the country and the world. Whatever your pet, make sure that everyone is comfortable with the water and everyone is fully briefed on all safety procedures so that there are no serious accidents.
Visit Another Country
If you are someone who lives in a very remote part of the country and wants to be able to experience a new way of life, then it might be in your interest to go abroad for your stag day. There are so many different countries that you can visit with very little prior preparation, with the majority of Europe springing to mind almost instantly. Spain, Italy, France – these are all incredible places which could be more than suitable for a stag day.
The only thing that we will caution is that you may need to give all attending parties time to prepare, whether this is renewing a passport or booking the time off work. Don’t spring this on people, because then more often than not it will be shut down.
Sometimes the best way to provide a stag day is to go away from everything and focus on perhaps on the most critical aspects of the entire event — the male bonding. Renting a cabin by a lake in the middle of nowhere is a great way for a group of lads to reconnect, and remind themselves that even though they’re on a different path in life, they are still the best of friends. Just make sure that you have a phone for emergencies and plenty of supplies, and you’ll be fine.
Whatever You Like
Look, at the end of the day, it’s all about making sure that the groom has the best time possible. We can make suggestions for as long as you like, but when all is said and done, it comes down to what the groom would like and what you as his friends can do. Just pick something that you know he’ll appreciate, even if it’s not massively expensive because that’s not the point. The point is that you enjoy yourself. However, that happens.
To summarise, these are just a few of the different activities which you could plan out for a stag day. It’s always an exciting event, being deeply ingrained in Western culture and offering a chance for guys to get together and enjoy themselves. However, you have to make sure that you’ve planned everything well in advance because nothing ruins the day like poor planning and something going wrong at the last moment. You should also always consult with the groom about what you intend to do, because if he’s not comfortable with something, then you’ve done him a disservice. When in doubt, pick something which you know will go down well, and maybe introduce some slightly more adventurous elements in places, but don’t make it the focus.
