Common FAQ for Stag Parties
How many people should go on the stag?
Around 5-15 people should go on a stag do. That makes it so everyone can get along and aldo making it a manageable size. Some stag dos can be much larger, like 25/30 people, but that number is an outlier.
Do you have to have a stag party?
No, you do not have to have a stag party if you don't absolutely want to. Most married men have one, but you don't necessarily have to.
How long should a stag party be?
A stag party should be from 1 day to 1 week. Some stag parties are a single night down the pub. Some stag parties are a week away in a foreign country. As with a lot of things, it depends. Generally, a stag party is a weekend, but it varies.
Do you give a gift at a stag party?
No, you do not need to give a gift at a stag party. It does happen, but it is very rare. The gift is for you all to be together and have a great time.
Can you invite someone to the stag and not the wedding?
Yes, it's ok to invite someone to the stag and not the wedding. Certainly, if it's a small and private wedding and if the stag guests don't know the bride-to-be.
How far in advance do you book a stag do?
It's best to book your stag party months in advance rather than weeks. This gives people time to plan and for some - save up for it.
Who decides who goes on a stag do?
The groom decides who goes on the stag do. It's his wedding, his stag party. The best man or men then organise it from there.
