How To Organise a First Class Stag Do by The Stag Company

 article about How To Organise a First Class Stag Do by The Stag Company
A well-organised stag do can be one of the most memorable times of your life. If you are the best man it's up to you to provide your friend with something he'll never forget. Don't waste the opportunity to do something unique and give everyone involved a great weekend away.

Let's take a look at a few things you can look into to make the weekend a total success and prove that you are indeed the 'best' man.

Start with a Bang
If you are travelling to somewhere in the UK, then try to make the journey a part of the fun. Hire a limo or maybe even a luxury coach and start the party right there. If you have a bigger budget you could even look into hiring a helicopter trip to your weekend destination. If you have a spare 2 million, you could buy the world's most expensive motorhome (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2338810/Worlds-expensive-motorhome-goes-sale-2m-comes-complete-cocktail-bar-roof-terrace.html). OK, perhaps that's going a bit too far, but you get the idea.

Have Some Back-Up Plans
A heavy night's drinking might kill some people's enthusiasm for daytime activities. Don't take the risk of wasting a day if people are too hungover for rock climbing or paintballing and instead have a fall-back plan that will allow them time to recover. Maybe a round of golf will be more appealing and you can get back to the exciting stuff the next day.

Keep Some Surprises
It's all well and good to listen to the groom in advance and arrange some things he loves, but you must keep a few surprises back. Some people will be too nervous to agree to things in advance but they'll join in the spirit of the occasion on the day, so save a few of the more exciting activities until the day of the event. Part of the fun of a stag do is trying new and challenging things.

Get to Know the Destination
Wherever you plan on going, make sure you have the full scoop on the best places to go. There's nothing that kills the stag do vibe quicker than aimlessly walking the streets trying to find a cool place to have a drink. Find out where all the best late night bars, clubs and restaurants are and don't be stuck asking for directions at two in the morning. If your friends are inclined to want to party all night, this AOL article (http://news.travel.aol.com/2010/09/23/wildest-places-to-party-in-europe/) has a few tips on the best European party cities.

There are plenty of things you can find to do in most large cities, both in the UK and across Europe. The best way to get the low-down on specific cities is to visit a site such as www.redsevenleisure.co.uk/stag-weekends/, which displays listings for activities all over the world. The key is variety, as you don't want a weekend that's all activities with no downtime, nor do you want a stag do that's non-stop partying. Large groups will have diverse tastes, so try to have something for everyone.
