StagWeb spotlight growing trend for stag dos in Iceland's capital city.

A stag weekend to surpass all others.

A stag party is seen as the last chance for a bachelor to let his hair down and have fun prior to taking on the responsibilities that married life brings. Stag groups are starting to think bigger than a few beers down the pub with mates, risqué elements and cheeky pranks.

In general stag parties are no longer held the night before the wedding, due mainly to the sleepy state of the groom and best man! The rise of the big stag weekend sees the event planned well in advance with a good level of organisation and the use of professional stag do companies. Groups are now able to treat themselves to long weekends away, involving much more than just drinking and playing pranks, and ultimately everyone realises that this means better memories and a happier bride-to-be. Tradition has adapted stag parties into much grander affairs.

The fact that striking city Reykjavik is now proving popular for stag groups illustrates this adaptation. A stag weekend in Reykjavik can see the groom-to-be and his friends experience a range of excellent activities and a growing nightlife, highlighting the changing desires of modern stag groups. These organised stag groups provide much more than the sipping of beer down the local pub, they’re designed to mix action and adventure with fun and friendship, and can be tailored to suit the needs of the particular group.

StagWeb are leading stag do organisers: their Reykjavik account manager Sam told, “There’s been a rise in stag groups heading to Reykjavik to celebrate their pre-nuptials, and for good reason. The city offers groups a unique range of activities such as a glacier hike, snowmobiling or even a spa day at the Blue Lagoon. Stag groups really want a stag weekend experience to surpass all others, going down as a legendary event with the boys. And what better place to experience that than the uniqueness of Reykjavik!”

Some of StagWeb’s top European stag destinations include Prague, Budapest and Dublin, where the focus leans more towards mixing the traditions of pranks and risqué elements with an injection of culture and activities. Previously these areas didn’t offer such a great range of daytime activities and facilities, but stags nowadays can enjoy an exciting, packed weekend itinerary.

StagWeb stag parties provide a thorough organisational process for helping to organise the ultimate stag weekend for all types of client. They help the best-man or groom organise the event with e-invites and itinerary scheduling, thoroughly adapting to the party planners wishes. The days of the best-man gathering up a few friends have disappeared; today stag parties have become more grandiose affairs with the emphasis placed on having fun with best mates, while maintaining some of the stag do traditions. StagWeb’s sister website GoHen have also found a rise in the amount of hen parties looking to expand from the traditional small celebration, with more hen parties going abroad and trying out new activities.
