Stag weekend parties are part of a tradition that has been around even back to the Roman Civilization. The term stag party is endemic within United Kingdom, in other countries it may be termed as bachelor party. The word stag symbolizes one’s manliness. This correlation is really old and was based on the fact that stags were supposed to be well capable of wooing the female counterpart.
Even now, this tradition is still observed by many people and it seems as though it is not going to die down anytime soon. In fact, it has taken a more detailed and extravagant form. In the previous years, stag parties are more of the night before the wedding celebration which in some way makes sense according to its term. In these days, people schedule the bachelor parties days before the wedding celebration. This is due to the fact that brides are more reluctant to have their future husbands go into the wedding ceremony still half intoxicated with alcohol.
The tradition is more or less similar throughout different countries. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities part is highly dependent on the region or locality. However, the idea is that the groom should experience some things that a married man will not be able to do. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.

To add a special twist to the aprty, you may choose to hold it in another country than your own. This is a good opportunity to deviate from the norm.
There are a whole lot of other options fit for your daytime activities but just make sure that it suits the groom and the whole team of guys as well. These activities include go karting, rock climbing, parasailing, wind surfing, and paintball. Of course, if you are not the adventurous type of guy then you can totally stop here. You can actually skip the notorious night by going to a karaoke stall and sing your night out with a couple of beers in tow. What’s important is that all of you are in agreement and that the groom is not that uncomfortable.
In essence, stag parties are a good way to have some fun and to relax the soul and mind from all the tedious work and wedding preparations so that during the big day everything will go on smoothly. This is actually a good idea before the groom settles down and will have less chances of saying yes to a party night.
