Whether it’s called a Buck’s Night, Bachelor Party or Stag Night, the idea is the same: to celebrate the prospective groom’s last night as a free man with his best mates. Go Wild can help to make those last moments of bachelorhood a memorable occasion for all. Here’s our primer for the organiser in planning the event.

First, it’s important to establish some ground rules. Usually it’s the “Best Man” of the wedding who takes the lead in directing the Stag Night festivities. He should consult with the groom to see what would be appropriate and enjoyable for all concerned. Yes, some Stag Night parties have been planned without prior knowledge of the groom and have been a smashing success. However such surprise Stag Nights are not considered good manners and have the potential for disaster. It’s best to involve the groom to create the Stag Night’s agenda. Factors such as activities, food, alcohol, accommodation, locale and the time set aside for the event should be discussed.
Usually Stag Night occurs the weekend prior to the wedding but should the revelry be intense to the extreme it may take a month for a complete recovery. Make sure the key players are committed to one date as soon as can be and ask for their input in organising the event.

The groom will help with the guest list which as a matter of course includes all male members of the wedding party. He no doubt will have other special friends from school, work, etc. that he wants included. As Stag Night organiser you need to know how many are on the guest list, where they live, who knows each other and identify those who have “special needs” such as teetotallers, diabetics and such.

Perhaps the most important consideration is the formulation of a budget. The tendency is to go overboard with planning only to discover later that many of the groom’s closest friends have been priced out of the activities. Again, it’s a good idea to get as many of the principals as possible involved at a planning session to sort out the invitee’s budget allowances and limitations.

Once a budget has been established and possible activities have been discussed, the organiser needs to contact all those on the invitation list. Mention the proposed date and schedule of events, the cost and the location. Provide a request for each invitee to RSVP so you as organiser will have accurate knowledge of the numbers involved. Unless the organiser can draw upon substantial financial resources, collect deposits from the guests. This will help defray the cost of no-shows.

Don’t forget to confirm all bookings for accommodation, transport, food and drink, activities and entertainment. Be sure to make all necessary deposits. Finally, contact all guests for confirmation of their attendance. Describe when and where to appear, appropriate attire, what to bring and balance owed if any. Don’t forget maps if needed.

Of course we at Go Wild have our own suggestions for a night or weekend of debauchery. Better still, we can reduce the stress of organising a Stag Night and help with logistics. We are delighted to assist in your main event and can offer many helpful ideas.
