UK stag parties 'toning down celebrations'

16 Apr 2009

UK stag parties might be renowned for their raucous nights out and booze-fuelled antics, but a number of modern men are opting to tone down their celebrations, it would seem.

Writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, journalist Brigid Delaney insisted that traditional stag do rituals are beginning to take a back seat as prospective grooms opt for less conventional alternatives.

Indeed, living on the fringes of Kings Cross in London, she noted that pub crawls and strippers are now more regular features of hen nights than stag nights.

"While the hens have gone wild, the bucks have gone mild," Ms Delaney observed.

Rather than spend their final night of freedom in a drunken haze, blokes are now choosing to enjoy a morning at the day spa and an afternoon round of golf, or a lively day out at the nearest paintball range.

One prospective groom got his stag do off to a far-from-conventional start this month after mates arranged for him to take a spin in Del Boy's trademark Robin Reliant ahead of a lads' day out at the races, Echo News reported.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19123910-ADNFCR
