The time has finally arrived when your brother or best mate is going to be tying the knot – you have probably been expecting it to happen – but if he has done you the honour of asking you to be his best man, although you will feel proud and happy about that, you will also start to realise what that means – not only do you have to buy yourself a new suit and some mens Rieker shoes from https://www.cottersshoes.co.uk/product-category/brand/rieker/rieker-mens-2018/ but you also have a stag party to organise – the biggest and best send off for the last night of freedom – so no pressure then! Here is what you should do next…
Sit down with the groom to be and have a chat with him – go to your local pub one evening and try to get some ideas about what he is expecting – how close to the wedding does he want it to be? Is he wanting a long weekend abroad, or a night on the town in your local area? Does he have any activities that he enjoys, or maybe ones that he has always wanted to have a go at? Get plenty of ideas so that you can begin to arrange the perfect stag party.
When it comes to start arranging the party, you will need to get a list of who the groom plans to invite, along with email addresses and phone numbers. You will then have to contact everyone on the list and get an idea of who will be able to attend – maybe make a list with yes no and maybe so that you have an idea of numbers before you book. Think about the people on the list and get an idea of their lifestyle and budgets – for example, if you book a week in a luxury Las Vegas Penthouse there may not be many who will be able to afford to attend, or can get the time off work – so it is worth asking the guests what their budget is and what they can commit to before you dive into a luxury holiday!
When it comes to booking, there are so many options out there, you are sure to find the perfect one for your group. Remember to keep everyone up to date during the whole process to ensure that people aren’t being overlooked and to encourage good communication both ways – after all if somebody suddenly can’t make it you will need to know. Do everything as soon as you can – the more organised you can be, the less last-minute panic you will have, and the groom will be more likely to have the time of his life with a perfect send off!
