What is a Sten Do?

Noun - A sten do is a joint stag and hen celebration where the guests of both the bride and groom come together for one super party (Also referred to as a hag do).

Fun Loving Sten Activities

Stag & Hen = STEN Party

Joint stag and hen weekends, the sten do, have become increasingly popular in recent years and it's easy to see why.

It's the perfect chance to get all the stags and hens together for a unisex pre-wedding shindig with everyone laughing, playing and partying together.

At StagWeb we've been arranging legendary stag do since 2002 and our sister company GoHen.com deals in all things hen, so marrying the two together to create epic sten do is the perfect marriage - like fish and chips, Starsky and Hutch, beer and more beer.

How To Plan A Sten Party

We won't lie, it's not easy to plan a pre-wedding bash (we've helped over 700,000 clients head to theirs).

Getting all the guys together for a whole weekend can be a headache and with a sten do, you have to multiply the potential hiccoughs by two (although you also get to share the burden with the chief bridesmaid).

The results are definitely worth it, though, and StagWeb can take the stress away. Give us the number of guests, dates and location, and we'll take care of the rest.

Our VIP client area means you and the group can manage your booking from your smartphones while we do the running around for you. Plus, all your sten guests can pay individually online.

What are the benefits of a Sten?

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 party 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 and hen celebrations can be a cause for concern with nervous partners worrying about "what happens in Vegas." A joint sten do means no fretting and pre-marital harmony.

Top 5 locations perfect for a Sten Do

  1. Bristol - The West Country's favourite for outdoor activities.
  2. Liverpool - Rated as some of the best nightlife in the UK, and it's fantasic range of activities suitable for everyone in the group!
  3. London - Great sightseeing, nightlife, activities and accommodation. It tops the lot.
  4. Edinburgh - A short flight from most major cities, we love Edinburgh!
  5. Cardiff - A solid option if you're wanting to keep budget's tight. It's all round great for activities and nightlife.

Sten Do 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.

inflatable games

Inflatable Games

Available where? Nationwide

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 or mixing the two sets of friends together). Inflatable Games are essentially a mashup of all your favourite oversized TV game shows such as It's a Knockout, Wipeout, Banzai. Expect things to get messy. Read more about Inflatable Games...

Pub Treasure Hunt

Available where? 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 about Pub Treasure Hunt...

Somerset Challenge

Available where? 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 about Somerset Challenge...

A Day at The Races

Available where? Nationwide

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 about a day at the races...

welsh challenge

Welsh Challenge

Available where? Cardiff & 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 the teams out to do battle with totally mad and hysterical results. Read more about Welsh Challenge...


Available where? 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 more about Paintball...

assault courses

Assault Course

Available where? Bath, Brighton, Bristol, Exeter, London, Nottingham, Torquay, York

If the nearly-weds are adventurous types, then an assault course could be just what the sten doctor ordered. It's rough, ready and 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 about Assault Course...

Go Karting

Available where? Nationwide & Europe

It's the fast and furious sten party style. Go Karting is something to suit everyone, and we have incredible arenas 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 to create some real team bonding between the two groups. Read more about Go Karting...
