Planning the send off party for your best bud can be quite a tough job. Irrespective of whether you have been trusted with this job or it has been forced upon you, you have to make a night memorable and the pressure can be quite real.
While some groomsmen begin to binge watch the Hangover series to come up with good ideas for their stag do, others place the event’s fate in the hands of Google. No matter where you turn to for advice, one thing is for certain, you want to have a great time!
Here are some unconventional things you can do to spice things up at your stag-do:
The simplicity of nature can be quite calming and it can get you and your mind away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Doing fun things against the backdrop of nature can be a wonderful experience.
There are many ways you can make a stag-do memorable such as by packing your tents, some good food, cartons of beer and getting the gang to do some crazy fun stuff together. One such activity which can be a lot of fun, provided you do not run into trouble with the law, is hunting.
While you shouldn’t rely on hunting for your supper, if you are able to catch a prey somehow you will have an awesome story to tell back home.
Rent a House on the Beach
Imagine a party venue which has the view of the ocean? You get this and a lot more when you rent a house on the beach for your stag-do. There are so many things that you can do at the beach at night; you can have a round of barbeque to quench your hunger and beers to quench your thirst.
Give Shooting a Try
If the groom-to-be is interested in conventional masculine ideas of fun, you can take your gang to a shooting range. When those ear plugs are on and you are holding a rifle in your hands, you will feel euphoria rushing through your veins. Your gang is sure to walk out of the shooting arena like those bad ass boys from Reservoir Dogs.
Professional Sporting Event
It is popularly believed that guys bond over women, booze and sports. Not a bit of this information is false. While most stag-dos employ a combination of first two elements, you can break the convention by using the third element. You can take your gang out to watch a professional sporting event. Pick the groom-to-be’s favourite sport and take him to a stadium full of fanatics such as himself.
Rent out a Video Game Lounge
If the groom-to-be is crazy about video games, you can host his stag-do party in a video game lounge. His excitement will know no boundaries when he is playing the latest and greatest video games of all time. You can also hire a staff to serve you with drinks in between games. You can also make it a bit competitive by organising tournaments and playing different sports. It may not cost a bombshell and can be a lot of fun at the same time.
Another conventional idea of a bunch of guys having fun is all of them jumping together in a pool of water. But how old and outdated is it? Wouldn’t it be a lot more fun if instead of a plank, there’s an airplane and you’re not diving into a pool of water but from the sky with a parachute on your back. It may be slightly expensive but looking back at it you will be proud about having pulled off a stunt such as this on his big day.
Hit the Paintball Arena
Another fun crazy activity to include on your stag-do checklist is Paintball. If you’re scared of real guns but fantasise yourself holding one, paintball is the closest you can get to fulfill your dream. It offers the entire gang an opportunity to dress up like soldiers and take a shot at opponents.
Gone are the days when merely boozing and doing drunken stuff together was considered fun. To take fun to the next level you should try one of these things on the epic stag-do night.
