Sten & Hag Weekends

Sten and Hag party ideas

Stag + Hen = Sten/Hag Party

Joint stag and hen weekends, the 'sten' or 'hag' do, have become increasingly popular in recent years and it's easy to see why. It's the perfect chance to get all the younger wedding guests together for a unisex pre-wedding shindig that will get all the guys and gals laughing, playing and partying hard together.
At StagWeb we've been arranging stag parties since 2002 and our sister company GoHen.com deals in all things hen, so marrying the two together to create epic sten & hag do is a natural progression.

Planning a sten party

Planning A Sten Party

We won't lie, it's not always easy a pre-wedding party (we've helped over 350,000 clients head to theirs). Getting a large group of people together for a whole weekend can be a headache, with a sten party you have to multiply the potential hiccoughs by two. However don't let that put you off, the results are definitely worth it and StagWeb can take the stress away, you give us the number of guests, dates and location and we’ll take care of the rest.

Our VIP client area mean you can stay in touch with your event from any smartphone and tablet, while we do the running around for you. You can even stay in touch with all the guests, sending invites direct from the system. Plus all your sten party guests can pay individually online.

Friends With Benefits

There are a number of great benefits to a joint sten party;

Share the cost - Rather than two expensive weekends, everyone can pool their resources for one massive weekend to remember.
A Proper Party - Weddings are a mix of different ages and family members. A sten weekend gives all the younger members of the wedding party a chance to really let their hair down and celebrate the happy couple's big day.
No Nagging - Stag & hen parties can be a cause for concern with nervous partners worrying about “what happens in Vegas”. A joint do means no fretting and pre-marital harmony.

All Fun & Games

Stag party survivors will know that one of the best things at any stag do are the games, and pranks, just imagine how much fun stag party games can be once you throw a few bridesmaids into the mix. Yep, we’re talking a party of legendary proportions. 

Here are some of the best activities for joint sten weekends;

Sten hag party fest


If you're going to be getting everyone together for one massive joint knees up then why not do it in style with your own mini-festival? We've teamed up with our sister site GoHen.com to create an amazing sten or hag do festival package.

You can get all the hens and stags together to stay at a superb glamping site with a range of different accommodation on offer;

Yurts, tipis, log cabins, bell tents, wooden wigwams, geodomes

Live on stage...

And to ramp up the sten/hag do carnival atmosphere you can tuck into a hog roast before rocking it out to a live band!!! Your own live concert to really take things to the next level.

More fun and games...

You can also add an activity to create some stags vs hens rivalry.

Inflatable Games


This is perhaps the perfect joint stag and hen party activity. You'll need to split the party into teams (either creating a battle of the sexes of mixing the two sets of friends together). Inflatable games are essentially a mash up of all your favourite oversized TV gameshows such as It's a Knockout, Wipeout, Banzai. Expect things to get messy. Read more…

Pub Treasure Hunt

Nationwide & Europe

This is a battle of wits, mixed with a few friendly visits to waterholes along the way. The whole event is directed using SMS text message technology. The teams will have to answer clues, take photos in funny and compromising positions, shoot hilarious videos and more as the adventure takes you between pubs. Perfect for setting up a battle of the sexes. Read more…

Somerset Challenge

Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham

Imagine the Olympics being run by the Wurzels and fuelled by scrumpy cider… Now add a group of excitable stags and hens, light the fuse and stand well back. This crazy mix of giant games is hilarious from beginning to end, especially when the forthcoming bride and groom face the ‘Farmer’s Shower of Truth’. Read more…

A Day at The Races


Add a little sophistication to your sten party with a day out at a top racecourse. This is perfect for groups that fancy getting dressed up and stepping out in style. It's ideal if you have large numbers of guests that haven’t met before as everyone can mix and mingle at will. There's the added bonus of everyone being able to have a little flutter and hopefully back a 100-1 outsider (which some might argue were the odds of the bride-to-be actually agreeing to marry the groom in the first place!?!). Read more…

Welsh Challenge

Cardiff, Brecon, Swansea

Created by the same messed up minds behind the Somerset Games, The Welsh Challenge takes one of the UK's best party cities and covers it in its own blanket of weirdness, force feeds it leeks, warms it with dragons and then sends sten parties out to do battle with totally mad and hysterical results. Read more…


Nationwide & Europe

Paintball has massively evolved in recent years, once the preserve of the weekend warrior, sites are now totally modern with increasing numbers of femme fatales taking up arms. You'll be issued with state-of-the-art weapons, split into teams and then take on your own sten party Call of Duty in fantastic and complex missions. There's also the opportunity to make sure the groom gets a complete Dulux makeover from the lads. Read more…

Assault Course

Bath, Brighton, Bristol, Exeter, London, Nottingham, Torquay, York

If the nearly-weds are adventurous types then an assault course could be just what the stag doctor ordered. It's rough and ready and absolutely brilliant fun. You can split the sten party up into teams of mixed ability to create some good natured rivalry and present a prize to the winning team and (bride and groom themed) wooden spoons for the runners up. Read more…

Go Karting

Nationwide & Europe

It's the fast and furious sten party style. Go karting is something to suit everyone, we have incredible tracks across the UK and Europe including tracks that feature on the Karting Championship circuit. You can race in a grand prix style event or Le Mans style team racing to create some real team bonding between the two groups. Read more…
