How to organise Hen or Stag Do


Hi everyone,

Today, let’s talk about a organising Hen and Stag Dos. As we all know, for most it’s an inseparable part of wedding preparations. Nevertheless, sometimes the preparations can be stressful and add to an already tense atmosphere. Kat, our Wedding Coordinator, have put together a few tips to make it easier:

Make sure to plan well in advance

If you invited a fair few people or perhaps thinking about going abroad everyone’s diaries can get booked up quite quickly. Planning in advance will increase your chances to have all people in attendance.

Ask about budgets

Some of your guests may be able to afford what you had in mind. You should all discuss and agree on a mutual budget and stick to it. You definitely don’t want people to not be able to attend due to financial restrains.

You can organise an event before the Do

Not everyone will know each other, so it may be nice to go out for a casual drink or have a gathering prior. This is also a nice way to discuss plans for the actual hen/stag do as everyone is gathered in one place.

Think about the bride/groom

Consider what they may have mentioned before, their personality and preferences. Not everyone would like to go to Vegas as much as perhaps you would. Remember to be considerate when choosing what to do.

To make the party even more interesting, you may wish to have matching outfits. Always choose ones that can be easily put together. There is nothing worse than buying a whole new wardrobe for one event.

Have fun but not too much fun!

Enjoy your time with friends/family, but just remember that rules & laws do apply. It is never a good idea to get a little bit too drunk and end up down at the local police station!
