What Is Coasteering?
If you are looking for an adventure of a lifetime, try coasteering. In 1973, some people thought that it will be the next best thing and that it has a big future. Now, that is probably coming true.

Before going on an adventure, it helps to know what you need. It always helps to be prepared and know what you will be facing should anything go wrong.

A few days ago, a stag party member did get injured as the party of 14 went coasteering in Newquay. A helicopter was needed to transport the injured stag party member to the Royal Cornwall Hospital.
The accident occurred because he changed his mind at the last minute and twisted around after he jumped. The group had all the safety gear needed and the appropriate number of guides, but such a thing still cannot be avoided 100%.

If you really want it, you should go for it. Your stag night or stag weekend should always be about what you want and how you want to spend your last moments of freedom. So, if you think such an adventure is what you really want… go for it!

No one can ever bring back those last moments of precious freedom. So, make sure to have the stag do that you have always wanted and have a blast!
How to Choose the Best Suit for Your Wedding
As much as your stag do is part of the pre-wedding rituals, there are a lot of other things to do before the big day. One of the most important things to consider would be your wedding suit. So, how should you go about choosing one? These are some tips.
Do Not Rent
Ideally, you will only get married… once! So, do not even think about renting a suit and buy one instead even if you think you will only wear it for a few hours. Still, your wedding is not your senior prom and your wedding suit should still be special. Hence, buy your own suit and keep it as a souvenir.
Set a Budget
Just like buying any item whatsoever, having a set budget helps. Weddings can get quite expensive, but it is a major step in anyone’s life. Furthermore, if your bride gets to wear a $2,000 wedding gown, in addition to an extravagant hen do, why should you settle for a $50 suit? Set a reasonable budget for a decent suit and choose one based on your budget.
Get Something Appropriate
Do without the corporate look. After all, you are getting married and not really presenting a PowerPoint presentation. Get a new suit and do without the ones you usually use for work. To be safe, choose a three piece black suit.
As an added note, you should also choose something appropriate for your wedding location. If you’re having a beach wedding, you might want to reconsider getting the usual three piece suit and opt for a thinner cream linen suit instead.
The Right Fit
Regardless of what you end up with, make sure it fits just right. Spending you extra money for tailoring will always be well worth it. Even an inexpensive, but well-tailored suit can look like it’s worth a million if it fits just right.
Of course, in order for any suit to fit just right, make sure that you also choose a suit made of good fabric. No amount of skill in tailoring will suffice if the fabric is not that great to begin with.
Again, aside from your stag night, your wedding suit will be one of the most important things you have to consider. There are actually a lot of suits to choose from. Will you go for a tuxedo, double breasted or single breasted suit? Or, maybe a kilt? Will you be using a bow tie, cravat, tie, or pocket squares?
No matter what you choose, make sure to buy a suit well within your budget that’s appropriate for your wedding location. More importantly, make sure that it fits just right.
