How To Choose Who To Invite To A Stag Do

The best place to start would be to ask the Stag who he wants to attend. Does he want all his friends, family, and colleagues there? Or does he want 10 of his closest mates? It’s always best to talk with the stag himself to avoid a very awkward Stag.

Create A Group Chat

Once you’ve got your guest list confirmed, it’s time to make a group chat. We recommend a WhatsApp or Facebook group chat. This just keeps all contact in one place, making plans easier to track. It also allows members of the group to get to know each other a little better, who may never have met before.

How Much Should You Spend On A Stag Do

Arguably one of the most important stages of planning a Stag Do is setting a budget for how much group members are willing to spend for the day. You don’t want to plan a day that most of the group aren’t able to go to.

  • Where are you holding the Stag Do? – Are you going to go all out and spend a weekend in Budapest? Or are you wanting to head down to Newcastle for the day? It’s important to work out how much the groups willing to set aside for the Stag Party so you can work out where you’re able to travel to.
  • How long are you staying for? – Are you heading off for a day trip, a weekend away, or maybe even a week-long party? We recommend setting a daily budget for the group so you can then find out how long you’re able to start.
  • What activities are you going to do? – Once you’ve established where and how long you’re going for, you’ll be able to plan how many and what type of activities you will be able to fit into your day. You can view a full list of our activities filtered by location here.

What Activities Do You Do On A Stag Do 

Before getting too carried away with your weekend away, it’s important to check that all group members are happy with the ideas being put forward. There’s no point in planning a whole weekend just for the group to turn around and say they don’t want to do anything that you’ve planned.
