Planning the Perfect Stag Do - St James Hotel Nottingham

April 5, 2018

Although planning a wedding can be an incredibly stressful experience, there are certain things that you can do to limit the stress along the way. Of course, however, one of the most notable is the tradition of the stag do! It’s the perfect excuse to get all the guys together to celebrate your upcoming nuptials with a few drinks. But despite this, it can often be difficult to decide where best to go.

So, to make it easier, why not go on your stag in the same area that you will be getting married in? If your wedding venue is in Nottingham then why not have your stag close by? That way, you will get to know the area and if it’s a city there will be plenty of places to go.

Of course, you will want your stag do be fun and memorable so don’t just opt for a meal and a few drinks - do something different. If you’re not sure what to do, we've put together a few ideas which may help.

Be Creative and Fun

First and foremost, you want to have a good time. It will be your last night out as an unmarried man so it's important to make the most of the occasion. Let your creativity shine and consider activities that you haven’t done before like paintball or an escape room. Different and memorable, these are perfect activities to keep you busy during the daytime.

Fine Dining

When evening arrives, you will need to consider where you want to eat. Why not look at going to dinner somewhere interesting, maybe somewhere that has live entertainment? Don’t just go to the same old place - be adventurous and try something new.

Drink Up

After you have eaten, the chances are that you will want to go out for a few drinks. Check out the local clubs and bars and allow yourself to pick the ones which are best suited to your personal preferences. Don't forget the entertainment, either - nothing says fun like a few drinks and some live entertainment! Alternatively, you could always head back to the hotel and hit the bar.

Head Back to the Hotel

When it gets late, you don't have to let the night stop there. Take the party back to the hotel and relax, unwinding with your friends after a night to remember. If you're lucky, you may even find a pool table or darts board to play a few games.

When you combine all of these activities, you're bound to have the perfect template for a fun-filled stag do. All that's left to do is to get planning! If your wedding venue is in Nottingham you can rest assured, safe in the knowledge that there is plenty you can do throughout the day. Simply do some research, pick out your favourite activities and invite the boys along for the ultimate stag do to remember!
