Stag and Hen Parties in Surrey, England

stag and hen partiesStag dos and hen dos can all be a little passé sometimes, can’t they? It’s never quite made clear whether they are supposed to be tacky affairs and that those who buck the trend by doing something a bit nicer are the ones in the wrong, or if all those cringe-worthy stag dos and hen dos are actually the wrong way to do it. Perhaps there isn’t a real answer. On one hand you can put these things down to taste entirely, so it may seem that the western world has a very tacky sense of taste when it comes to celebrating the night before a bride or groom is supposed to be married.

Well actually, these days stag and hen dos are leaving more and more of a gap between these events and the weddings for which they have been organised. It never used to be the way, not as far as probably a lot of people can remember. It’s probably for good reason, however – there is something awfully seedy about either bride or a groom getting completely drunk the day before a very important day in their lives and ruining the whole day with a massive hangover that means they’ll be no fun and possibly moody: and these are just the problems for other people, what about the sickness and the terrible headaches for the brides and grooms themselves? A very bad idea!

And another thing: you can go out drinking any day of the week (in theory). Perhaps it is better the way it seems to be bending nowadays – creating a lengthy gap between the stag and hen dos and the marriage and creating a big occasion of the dos themselves. This way individuals can appreciate their pals more and actually do something exciting, different and beneficial rather than just another evening intoxicated.

For instance you could check out going somewhere outside of major cities, like London – away from bars and nightclubs, basically! There are much better places for stag and hen parties – Surrey, for instance, would be a lovely place. There are plenty of things to do in the countryside, plenty of ways to make a memorable experience with your friends – rather than having one that you’re probably not going to remember anyway! And if you do feel the need to drink, well, you could just take some with you!
