2019 was another big year for stag dos with thousands of partygoers heading out for their pre-wedding celebrations all across the globe. But where were they heading, what were they doing, how much were they spending and where was our invite? Here at StagWeb, we decided to crunch the numbers to find out all the answers to the big questions about stag weekends in 2019!
The Cost of a Stag Do 2019
This year we sent thousands of groups out with various different budgetary requirements to various different locations all across the globe, and through all the positive feedback we received, one thing became clear: it’s possible to celebrate the groom’s big weekend in style without breaking the bank! For example, a thrifty group in Bristol spent just £10 each for an epic half-day paintball session for the main man’s big send-off! So no matter whether your budget is big or small, there’s something out there for every group!
Stag Do Costs for 2019:
- Average Spend Per Group – £2,048
- Average Individual Spend – £152
- Highest Group Spend – £10,120
- Lowest Group Spend – £90
Yes, according to our data, the average spend per person for a stag do in 2019 has fallen by £39 in the last two years which is a significant saving per group and individually.
One group spent a whopping £10,120 on a trip to Ljubljana for one monumental send-off! It did include a fair amount of skiing over a week-long period to be fair to them!
