The stag party is traditionally a male activity and so it has the reputation of being risqué and adventurous to give the groom a chance to enjoy his single status for the last time. It usually occurs the night before the wedding. Females also have a similar less adventurous tradition known as the bridal shower.The bridal shower has changed with the times, however, and it took more of the stag party identity. Nowadays, the bride’s friends also give the bride a taste of what she will miss when she commences her matrimonial state. Bridal showers do not usually occur the night before the wedding, though.
Stag Party Ideas for the Groom
Stag parties are usually organized by the best man. The whole party could be a series of activities that begin early or mid morning and usually end late at night. The activities planned for the day part of the party should be something that all attendees, especially the groom, enjoy doing. The best man should therefore plan the activities carefully to ensure that the groom will enjoy his own stag party. He should also make sure to invite the groom’s friends that would likely enjoy the same things.
Stag party activities can take the form of water sports like scuba diving, jet skiing or deep sea fishing. They can also be shooting practice at the shooting range or paint balling. Some stag parties also include kart racing or bird watching, hiking, mountain climbing, or camping.
The stag party usually ends with a night at the clubs that have scantily clad pole dancers and flowing drinks. It is after all the night before the groom is obliged to be faithful to one woman so the friends make sure to put lots of temptation on the groom’s way. Humorous speeches are also a trademark of stag parties.
Stag Parties for the Bride
Bridal showers were traditionally arranged by the bride’s closets female kin and friends to help her prepare for the homebuilding. However, the stag party identity to the bridal showers of today cause some to hold bridal showers at clubs where scantily clad men dance and flirt with the bride-to-be, or at a friend’s house where a hired male dancer struts his stuff for the female audience especially the bride. The same logic applies: since the bride is obliged to be faithful to her husband, she is given lots of opportunity to stray one last time before she ties the knot.
