Best Mans Guide to the Perfect Stag Party
So, it has finally happened – you probably have expected it for ages, but your best mate is tying the knot and he has asked you to do the honourable job of being his best man. As exciting as this is, it also comes with a lot of work – so start organising now! If you are new to this, you are probably wondering where you begin. Here is what you should do next if you are planning on putting the ‘best’ into best man!
Get together with the groom – a night at the pub or a game of pool is a good idea, for a relaxed evening, you can ask him what he is expecting from the stag party. Get ideas of numbers of guests, and how close to the wedding he wants it to be. Ask him what sort of thing he has in mind, so you can begin to get some ideas together. You will also need a list from him of the people he wants to invite and get telephone numbers and email addresses for every guest.
Once you have all the contact details, get in touch with the people on the list and let them know that you are organising the stag party – get an idea of their budget and what they can commit to. After all, a week in Las Vegas sounds great, but many people may not be able to afford it or may have work and childcare commitments that would make it difficult for them to attend for that amount of time. If you are planning on a getaway abroad, hiring a villa is a great idea. Luxury villas in Turkey http://kas4villarentals.com/ are great – with the relatively cheap booze, year round sunshine and plenty of activities on offer, this makes the deal place for a stag party, and being closer to the UK, you can make a weekend of it rather than a week.
When you have the feedback from other guests, you can then book something. Remember to consider booking activities too, as you will get a better deal booking in advance rather than just turning up on the day – ad it will guarantee you a place with the more popular activities.
The most important thing to remember is that you are there to give the groom to be the time of his life – so good organisation beforehand will make for a cracking stag party that he will never forget!
