Organising a Stag Do - Need Some Ideas

57
Found 19th Apr 2013
Hi All
I'm best man and have organised a stag do in Manchester in May. There are 16 of us going and not everybody knows each other.

Does anybody have any suggestions of good things I can do to break the ice? We will be together as a group from 9am on the Saturday morning until the following day.

We are going paintballing in the afternoon and out around Manchester at night. We are not doing any fancy dress at night as I've heard it can be tricky getting into places in Manchester as a large group. I have thought about dressing the stag up in the day. Does anybody have any ideas of some funny costumes? Not too risque as we are traveling on the train.

Thanks

Manchester has an amazing night life. You just need to check what clubs/bars do accept big groups.

Therefore have it in Liverpool - eh?
Thank's guys, the destination is set so lets not debate that, it's meant to be a pretty decent night as long as we've careful as a large group hence no fancy dress at night.

I've thought of doing a stag do survival kit, like a mini goody bag for everyone and something separate for the groom, like a pack of chewing gum, some ear plugs, an alka-seltzer, a sachet of coffee, the address of the hotel any other ideas on that front?

Is it a stag do or a hen night? How about some lip gloss and panty liners just-in-case

Each to their own but that is very girly sounding to me.

I know, I just thought: stag night = drunk men, shouting, fighting, sweating = NOT caring about tomorrow.
But then not being a bloke, what would I know.

Hit a nerve there eh X)
Dave, I thought about it, if you get your guys walking the streets of Manchester with a goody bag, do take a pic
Rather than fancy dress, t shirts seem to be popular with the youngsters on stag Do's

Okay perhaps that's not the way forward then

That's the badger.
I'm going to a stag do next month in Bournemouth.

I've no idea why, everyone I speak to says it's the place people go to retire.

Sounds brilliant.
A booze bus that serves drinks onboard, stops off at a few pubs and includes a meal would be a good idea. I went on one for a joint stag and hen do and it was a laugh.
I though about t-shirts but don't really want to ask everyone for more money and spend the effort chasing it, I thought about just dressing the stag up like as a woman, baby, only gay in the village etc for the duration of the day until we go out at night
OP get a few of these

Anybody ever worn or been out with somebody in a morphsuit? Is this another silly idea?

We made our stag go paint balling in a luminous orange morph suit. It was hilarious and made him a huge target. Good idea.

Hm I thought you wanted something different?
The best I've seen recently was a whole group dressed as gorillas, they cleared the area in no time.

Don't go canal street dressed up.

And if you do go, go in groups of 3 or 4 guys up to the door, otherwise you're going to be turned away, very strict horrible door policies on canal street these days. Especially don't like stag or hen parties.

But if they bring goody bags, they will be much loved

Bournemouth can be a quality night out, you just have to know the right people/places.

I have a good friend who is a big promoter there, PM me if you want me to put you in touch.
Beer + drugs + strippers = Stag do.
Except no substitute.

The itinerary has already been decided I think, I've had no input in the organisation but it sounds like it's all planned. Thanks for the offer though.
Last one i went on we just went into town go him lathered greased his balls & tied him to a lamp post. The rest of us just went for a curry & then home & left him to it. None of this survival kit nonsense.(_;)
