Ruining a Stag Party – The Easy Way

Planning a stag is easy right?? What could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot actually.  It takes time, effort and months of planning in advance. One or many mistakes can ruin the weekend for the groom and all attending! And let’s not don’t forget the wrath of bridezilla who never really fell in love with her fiance’s mates anyway! The Stag is not an ending point either. Remember that messing it up and you’ll have to face the same people a short time later at the wedding too. So why not follow these few easy steps and make the groom’s last day of freedom his and your worst nightmare! Follow these steps and you will be ruining a stag party!

Step 1 – Don’t read, print or bring the Itinerary.

Everything has been planned out, you have the whole timetable made of where you have to be and at what time. This one document is your key to success but you either lose the itinerary or don’t bother to read or print it out! (This actually happens) Now, you have no idea on where you have to go, where you are staying  or what activities you are booked in for.  You also have no contact details for your organisers because all the emergency details were written on the itinerary! Much like rocking up to an airport with only a passport in your back pocket and no idea where you are flying to or which airline your are booked with. Are you even at the right airport?? This is the perfect start for ruining a stag party weekend. Get this one right and there may be no recovery.

Probability: Rare

Recoverability: Not Likey


Step 2 – Inviting People the Groom doesn’t want to be there. 

Ruining a stag party - not groom advisedWhen you are making a list of who to invite on the stag do, just remember not to ask the groom on who to invite. Just invite anyone and everyone there is, maybe include the groom’s brother-in-law or father in law  to be so he doesn’t enjoy the Stag at all or even get close to ‘cutting loose’ for fear of constant everlasting disapproval. This is a good way to make the situation awkward! This will definitely have some laughs for you and the boys but poor groom-to-be will suffer for the rest of the life. You might also want to invite the groom’s arch nemesis while you are at it. What can go worse? May the best man(no pun intended) win! A lad fight, extra beneficial for ruining a stag party. Probably best to cancel the stripper at this stage too.

Probability: Sometimes

Recoverability: Not Likey


Step 3 – Taking tell-tale pictures of the groomruining a stag party - click pics

Let’s say you decide to keep the stripper, you should have your camera’s ready while the groom parties with a naked lady running around. Post it on your Facebook and that’s it, you have done the best thing you can do for ruining a stag party and possibly the upcoming wedding also! Nothing is worse than having an angry bride-to-be and a hungover groom screaming at each other after the night’s activities!

Probability: Happens sometimes (alcohol impairs judgement) 

Recoverability: Not Likey


Getting the most unorganised person to organise the stag party

Another perfect way to ruin a stag party is by asking the most irresponsible person to organise it. Sure, the groom’s best man is the one that organises the stag party, but let’s face it if he is a bright as a 20-watt lightbulb, things may not go well. Choose some other more organised mates as groomsmen to help things run a little more smoothly.  It’s not like there is anyone that can help you at all, so why even bother asking. Just become the boss at ruining a stag party.

Probability: Happens a lot

Recoverability: Medium


Have a stag party one day before the wedding. 

Why not organise your stag party before the day of the wedding! Two things can ruin a stag party here:

  1. The groom will just not drink or get hungover, so you are back to square one, no fun, just be sober.
  2.  Just show up drunk to the wedding day! I guarantee you that the bride will appreciate a red-eyed monster standing in front of her, unable to even say ‘I do.’

Kill two stones with one bird!

Let me tell you, no amount of water will help you get over that hangover! The punishment for the groom will last forever.

Probability: Happens Rarely (only on bad TV shows)

Recoverability: Never


Planning Too Much 

Plan a heap of activities for your stag! FootGolf  in the morning, Go Karting in the afternoon (miss this one as the group start drinking at lunch – money wasted as non-refundable), getting super drunk in the afternoon and just being plain dead at night. Next morning, after you have puked or maybe are still getting over your hangover, just go for 2 hours of off road driving lessons! Sounds like a perfect way to ruin a stag party.  It’s great fun, watching the lads stop the cars every five minutes because they want to puke their guts out! Pacing yourself is for wimps.

Probability: Happens a lot

Recoverability: Good
