The 4 Biggest Stag Do Mistakes

  1. Putting in no effort - Mr Can't Be A***d
  2. Doing it last minute - Mr I'll Do It Tomorrow
  3. Thinking it'll sort itself out - Mr Hit & Hope
  4. Booking it solo - Mr DIY

Arranging a stag do is easy...
But arranging a bad stag do is even easier. The difference?

Planning.

Poor planning (or no planning at all) is a surefire way to spoil the groom's big weekend away. If you think you can just turn up and 'see what happens,' your event will unravel faster than you can say, 'I should've booked with StagWeb!'

...don't be that guy.

Enlist the help of the experts and get the choice of the greatest activities in the best locations. And by letting us take care of all the boring admin, it frees you up to focus on the fun stuff like how you're going to prank the groom and what hilarious drinking games you'll use to get everyone in the party zone!

...definitely be that guy!

...plus you'll be able to relax in the knowledge your money is safe – why wouldn't you go with StagWeb?

The 4 Biggest Stag Do Planning Mistakes

1. Putting in no effort

Stag planning mistakes

Who: Mr Can't-Be-A***d

Attitude: Doesn't really want the hassle, so just books something cheap and easy: 'Yeah, that'll do!'

Outcome:

  • You miss a great chance to do something memorable
  • The groom won't be happy his big weekend has been ruined
  • All the lads feel let down and annoyed that their hard-earned cash was wasted
  • You keep having to buy drinks to appease the growing anger
  • And, eventually, you find yourself strapped naked to a lamppost and never invited down the boozer again

"StagWeb made the whole process a lot less stressful"

StagWeb made the whole process a lot less stressful and so much quicker. The suggestions around location and activities gave us all the options to make for a perfect stag do.

2. Doing it last minute

Stag planning mistakes

Who: Mr I'll Do It Tomorrow

Attitude: Has good intentions, but he's about as organised as a drunk toddler. He will inevitably leave everything until the last minute with dire consequences.

Outcome:

  • While more organised stags are partying in Prague, you and the guys are camping in a field just off the M25 as you try to convince them it's a 'Bear Grylls weekend'
  • As well as making like a bear and having to s*** in the woods, the groom will also point out (repeatedly) what a s*** time he's having
  • All the lads feel let down and annoyed that their hard-earned cash was wasted
  • You keep having to buy drinks to appease the growing anger
  • And, eventually, you find yourself strapped naked to a lamppost and never invited down the boozer again

"definitely use this company again in the future"

Made the whole process of sorting the stag do easy, everyone we dealt with was brilliant, will definitely use this company again in the future.

3. Thinking it'll sort itself out

Stag planning mistakes

Who: Mr Hit & Hope

Attitude: Works on the assumption that as long as everyone brings their passport, toothbrush and wallet, then it'll all work itself out.

Outcome:

  • It absolutely doesn't work itself out
  • You're all walking round a random city none of you know, trying to find something interesting to do
  • You finally find something interesting to do, turns out it's a scam, and you spend the rest of the afternoon being chased by a mob of angry stags

"saves everyone a lot of hassle"

It's easy, quick and saves everyone a lot of hassle booking and planning the perfect stag weekend!

4. Booking it solo

Stag planning mistakes

Who: Mr DIY

Attitude: I'll sort it all out on my own, how hard can it be?

Outcome:

  • Goes solo and books everything without the safety net of using a company
  • A few of the guys flake out at the last minute and you're unable to get your money back
  • Arrive at the accommodation only to find out they don't accept stag dos
  • Didn't consider how far the activities were from each other and there's no way you're doing them all
  • Didn't plan anywhere to eat and now you're desperately trying to find a restaurant that can accept a group of 16 hungry stags on a busy Saturday night at no notice
  • Finally get to the front of the line at the club only to be turned away at the door because they don't allow stag dos

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

"I wouldn't book a stag do any other way now"

Great weekend in Dublin, from the booking of the event to all the fine details during, StagWeb were a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't book a stag do any other way now.

How to Avoid the Classic Stag Mistakes

Book with StagWeb

We've been organising colossal stag weekends since 2002 and have seen it all and done it all. Seriously, we try and test all of our activities, accommodation and nightlife options, and if they don't meet our high standards, we don't use them.

What You'll Get

"the only way to organise stag dos"

This is the only way to organise stag dos for me, takes all the worry out of having to book and pay for people you potentially don't know.
