Naturally, you should do your research to ensure that everyone’s happy with the location, activities and accommodation – because ultimately, it all comes down to cost.

Next to weddings, stag and hen parties are meant to be one of the most memorable events of any person’s life – but it could also be one of the most expensive, as research shows that spending has more than doubled since 2008.

According to the Daily Mail, the average cost of stag parties now amounts to around £153 per person while hen partygoers rack up approximately £157 each – visiting cities such as York, Edinburgh or Glasgow for their celebrations. Compared to the £91 spent for stags and £102 for hens back in 2008, naturally this is a worry for many a bachelor and bachelorette – but fortunately Tying the Knot is here to help.

Simon Barwell from Tying the Knot shared some tips: “Naturally, you should do your research to ensure that everyone’s happy with the location, activities and accommodation – and with hen parties costing twice as much as they did five years ago, it's important to keep an eye on your finances. But that’s where we come in – we scour the latest spa and pamper venues and come up with a number of packages for you to choose from that’s both enjoyable as well as affordable.”

While many have been skimping on certain extravagancies due to the recession, it appears that UK bachelors and bachelorettes are throwing caution to the wind – splashing out on first class travel, luxury hotels and even going overseas.

“As people weigh up the costs of local versus international weddings, we’ve noticed that many have shown an interest in going abroad to celebrate their hen and stag parties as well as to get married,” explained Barwell.

“It’s no secret that Las Vegas is fast becoming a popular choice, whether it’s for a hen or stag party, a wedding, or both. But as costs continue to rise, we take these concerns into account and offer our customers something closer to home – in either the UK or Ireland.”

Couples seeking out potential wedding venues can view their options by region as well as check out any dates that offer late availability. With a list of dates, photos and any special offers of the venue to choose from, the Tying the Knot website provides an in-depth guide to give as much information as needed to help brides and grooms-to-be make the biggest day of their lives as special - and as memorable - as possible.
