No real stag party is complete without stitching up the groom-to-be at least once. At StagWeb HQ we take our stag pranks very seriously, we'd even go as far as to say that quality stag do pranks are no laughing matter.
Our offices often reverberate to the tune of "Oh you bunch of *****!" as another one bites the dust, so here's a few of our favourite stag pranks to get your creative juices flowing...
One of the slightly more artistic stag night pranks, grab the main man's wallet, hotel keys, phone and anything else he's carrying, give him an instrument or other busking tools plus a hat to catch the pennies and set him a target, a few quid should do. The groom is not allowed to join the party again until he's earned the full amount. Then simply find a nice pub from where you can all watch him in action.
The Roly Poly show is stag pranking on a much bigger scale. And by big we mean HUGE. We'll have one of our BBW dancers give him the kind of lap dance that he'll never (be able to) forget. Read more…
As stag do pranks go this is an oldie but a goodie and done well its nothing short of spectacular.
Without the grooms knowledge get his stag bag packed ready for the off. You'll then need a couple of the boys kitted up in balaclavas. Now all you need to do is wait until the groom is somewhere remote so the "kidnappers" can pounce, blindfold him and then whisk him away (keep it low key, you don't want some unsuspecting member of the public dialling 999).
Now for the fun part. Don’t remove the blindfold or speak to the groom, drive him off to where the rest of the stags are waiting. You can then tell him why he’s been grabbed and set him a task before releasing his bonds. (A word to the wise, DO NOT attempt to gag him in anyway, if he suddenly drops the bombshell that he uses an inhaler and none of you knew then things might not end as humorously as you’d hoped).
If one of your stag activities is paintball then there are a few variations on a theme to this gag but essentially its target practise with the groom as your target. Have a word with the marshals to get the all clear and when you're all in position grab the groom and de-bag him. Once he's down to his Y-fronts give him his outfit (have a chicken suit, onesie or Speedos ready and waiting). Give him his facemask and elbow pads then lead him to the "wicket".
Lay his clothes out at either end of the run/wicket. His challenge is to sprint between the wickets collecting his clothes one item at a time while the stags line up on either side ready to hit their target.
If the groom is all about his looks and “street cred” then it might be time to bring him down a peg or two. Rather than his usual “pimp walk” that he puts on he should be given a far more suitable stag mode of transport. A pink tricycle for example which are easily found on eBay or a second hand shop, then during your night out between each pub he has to motor along by pink pedal power like the sweet little poppit he is.

Another well worn traditional stag party prank but done well it never get’s old. Find a suitable object or landmark, then its gaffer tape time and if you’re really creative you can get him off the ground. A word to the wise, gaffer taping someone’s mouth can be dangerous. However gaffa tape on someone’s hair or eyebrows (especially when it comes time for them to remove it) can be bloody hilarious!
Please note; Loss of eyebrows too close to the wedding (photos) could result in the bride exacting bodily revenge on every last one of you.
If you like your stag party pranks to run like a well worked script then this is the one for you. Imagine the groom's face when he wakes to find he has a (fake) bride, complete with her suitcase, marriage certificate. The works! Our “bride” (actress) will have a convincing story so that the panic stricken groom will soon be asking the rest of the group “I know I was drunk but I didn’t did I…?” and if you’re all good you can convince him that yes, indeed he did!

If your groom-to-be has more skin and hair products than Ronaldo and spends far too much time clothes shopping than is healthy for a man then this is the perfect way to embarrass him. Pick out an outfit from a charity shop, it could be pyjamas with a pipe dressing gown and slippers (ready for his new husband role) or a hideous shirt and suit, you'll find a great selection of hideousness on any high street. And no matter how much he complains do not give him his clothes back for the rest of the night.

If you're going to be setting up your own stag weekend Call of Duty with Laser Games, Archery Tag or Paintball make sure you "keep the groom safe" by giving him a hi-viz jacket and trousers to wear or perhaps a nice bright pink onesie. It means all the players will be able to see where he is at all times and in the case of Paintball, be able to give him a complete "Dulux Makeover".
The ultimate 'room service'. The groom will be woken by a knock on the door only to find his maid is not your average looking cleaner and it won't be the beds that will be stripped. The rest of the stags can all pile into the groom's room to enjoy the show that will certainly perk up the groom's morning. Read more...
Don't tell the groom where he's going. Just get him to the secret location where he'll see a wrestling ring and not one but two sexy wrestlers waiting to "take him down"! And when he complains he hasn't got anything to wear, you can then hand him a wrestling unitard or mankini. "Easy! Easy! Easy!" Read more...
Is the groom up for a stag party challenge? They don't come much bigger than Stag vs Food. It's a monumental test of mind of matter and food over gullet as he'll have a set time to consume a food mountain of superb deep fried and flame grilled goodness. "Past the teeth and over the gums, look at stomach here it... Stand back! He's gonna blow!!!" Read more...
A variation on oil wrestling, only this time rather than smooth, warm oil the ring is full of mud and the two bikini clad hotties are ready and waiting. It's the perfect addition to any stag weekend and a classic stag party prank of epic (muddy) proportions. Read more...
A real mouth watering treat. Keep the groom unawares as you sit down to a fantastic steak dinner. Once the steaks have been served the lads will enjoy a private strip show... but it get's better. Once the plates are cleared dessert will be served to the groom on the stomach of one of the nubile strippers. Will he lick his plate clean? Read more...
Why is the taxi from the airport slowing down and pulling over? Why is he letting an unbelievably gorgeous hitch hiker on board? Why is she insisting the minibus driver puts on her favourite CD? And why is she taking her clothes off?!? These are a series of questions that might go through the groom's mind. But he'll probably be too busy enjoying himself and thanking you for laying on such a stunning welcoming committee. This ranks up there with the very best stag pranks but with added nudity! Read more...
Yep, you get the drill by now, a wrestling ring, two sexy semi-naked female wrestlers and a teeny-tiny costume for the groom. Only this time the ring is filled with jelly. It's a superb opportunity for all the stags to have a laugh at the groom's expense. The way things should be. Read more...
This one requires extreme dedication, but the payoff is immense. Find the shortest member of your group (the one you call ‘Frodo', ‘Bilbo' or if he's a less than attractive fellow, ‘Gollum') paint him blue, dress him as a smurf and handcuff him to the groom. You can make him stay this way for the whole weekend or give him a series of embarrassing forfeits to secure his freedom but remember, the longer the big man stays smurfed, the more laughs you'll have on that big night out.
Simple but effective. Get yourselves some UV paint and mark up a specially bought shirt for the groom. Then when he's in the club later that night, he'll be displaying a handwritten message of your choice (think ‘have you seen my mummy?!?') or an artistic impression of his crown jewels for all to see. The best bit? He won't even know it's happening until it's too late.
Now this prank requires the kind of ninja skills that would make Bruce Lee weep with pride. Buy yourselves a fake Maori face-tattoo kit and wait for mummies little soldier to hit the hay. Once he's catching Z's, apply the tattoo with all the grace and skill that your likely drunken selves can muster and wait until morning for the groom's shocked reaction upon seeing his freshly tattooed mug. Definitely one to record on your phones!
Over the years, your stag squad has probably put together a catalogue of the kind of chat-up lines that would make even Napoleon Dynamite cringe with disgust. However, on this night, The Hall of Shame will see your groom perform them all on unsuspecting groups of girls in one evening of sheer humiliation. Get the lads to write down the best of the worst and watch in amazement/horror as the nearly-wed moves from stag to stag for his next one-liner. Failure to perform results in endless forfeits and any embarrassing photos being uploaded straight to Facebook.
To NOT stitch up the groom will be a dereliction of your duty as stag organiser, in which case your “man card” should be revoked, you should forever more be made to drink halves of shandy and denied all football privileges, instead you'll be taken shoe shopping every Saturday with the rest of the girls.
