As the organiser, you have a lot of planning ahead of you. It’s important to gather all the wants from the stag or hen,after all, it’s their last bit of freedom before they cross to the other side. Once armed with the information, the serious job of planning the weekend can start.

If you’re planning a Stag or Hen Do in the DeanWye here are some tips to help you organise the perfect weekend:

  • What does the Stag/Hen want?Find out direct from them what they really want from the weekend and then consider how far you can push things in terms of what surprises you might have lined up.
  • Who is coming along to the weekend? Find out the numbers, try and get people to fully commit early on so you can book accommodation and activities.
  • When should the event be held? If it’s just one night then the golden rule is never on the night before the wedding! Otherwise you are asking for trouble.
  • Consider the location and costs. Does the stag/hen want to be closer to home or does they want fly off somewhere? Take into account the potential costs and try and keep things affordable.
