Stag night revellers continue to splash the cash

Credit-crunched Brits may be looking to tighten the purse strings, but it seems stag night revellers are still willing to splash the cash to help send the groom off into married life.

According to research by Halifax Current Accounts, people across the UK spend up to £624.10 to attend the wedding of a friend or loved one.

Stag dos and hen parties account for a large chunk of the costs, with the average Brit splashing out as much as £258.50 to celebrate the bride or groom's final night of freedom overseas.

While those who confined their stag party plans to the UK spent significantly less at an average of £92.80, the study also revealed a growing trend for "adventurous stags" who opt for costly activity weekends to celebrate their impending nuptials.

Indeed, according to Matthew Champion of Travelbite.co.uk, an action-packed weekend in UK destinations like the British Beacons could be ideal for stag parties seeking a thrill or two.

With activities ranging from white water rafting and clay pigeon shooting to rope courses and mountain climbing, there is sure to be plenty to keep revellers entertained.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19195706-ADNFCR
