Categories: Things To Try
With Halloween looming, we turn our minds to the stag nights that we have on our books this weekend and wonder how many of them are going to involve dressing up like Frankenstein or a vampire or putting a dress on – just for the hell of it.
A stag weekend is often a very nervous time for the groom, and rightly so. This is the time when his friends, by law, have to torture him and can do so, safe in the knowledge that no repercussions will ever be served.
How many stags this weekend will hear the words ‘trick or treat’ and wonder whether the treat the stag party has in store for him really will be a treat and not Gary’s Gran dressed in a burlesque outfit?
All grooms know that a stag night is a fair cop for japes and antics, but what we also know is that if taken too far and the groom fails to make it to his wedding, then there will be hell to pay. And anyone who has spent time with a bride on her wedding day will know that this is not the time to play with the emotions of an already emotional woman.
Take, for example, a recent story I heard on the grape vine of the stag’s mates cutting down several trees to block the groom from actually getting to the church. I think this might be seen as taking things too far and do you really want to get a telling off by the entire wedding party for the groom not making it?
Whatever happened to striping the groom naked and tying him to a lamp post?
With this in mind, we have complied the top 5 tricks and treats that you can play on your suspecting groom.
