Stag parties are an essential piece of culture and history ever since the emergence of Roman Civilization. A stag party is not really different from Australia’s bucks’party and USA’s bachelor party. The term stag was coined so that it refers to 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. Actually, stag parties have reinvented itself to be more elaborate, charming, wild, and extravagant. 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. Brides are more firm in not having their grooms have hangover the day after since it is after all their special day.
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 is more likely to be dependent on the region or place. The general concept is to have the groom experience some things that are not allowed for a typical married man. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. The same thing all over the world is to have unlimited drinks!

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 tons of options that you can choose in planning daytime activities for the whole gang given that you share the same preferences. Some examples include paintball, bowling, table tennis, obstacle courses, mind museums, mountain climbing, biking, parasailing, and kayaking. You would also need to consider if the groom is not comfortable with having naughty night activities so you can totally opt to stop in the daytime activities and just enjoy a night filled with solidarity and fun with bro conversations. A good option for a naught-free night is to check out five-star restaurants that offer acoustic jamming sessions. What’s important is that all of you are in agreement and that the groom is not that uncomfortable.
In a way, stag weekends are designed to give the groom and the bride a break from all the tedious planning and wedding preparations so that they can be well-rested before the big day. This is actually a good idea before the groom settles down and will have less chances of saying yes to a party night.
