I saw a really great idea posted in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group this week – joint hen and stag dos (or “sten” as they call it).
It made me think, there’s no reason why boys and girls should split up for stags and hens, it’s an outdated idea that needs to move with the times. Most people have friends of both genders, plus loads of people have joint friends, so who gets them? This tradition of stag and hen dos is a load of rubbish – I say f*** tradition, and do what you want!
Here are some of the brides’ awesome suggestions for sten dos!
“We went to Marrakech and the Atlas mountains all of us. Found a cheap little riad and had a blast with our friends.”
“My sis organised a trip to London and we spent the day in an arcade (girls vs boys) then went to the Medieval Banquet. The next day we went to one of those escape the room things (girls vs boys again) and had a nice lunch somewhere. Was super chilled and nerdy, just like us. Also, the girls totally won.”
“I recommend lockedinaroom. I did it with a big group of friends recently and it was hilarious.”
“My husband doesn’t drink so for us in the end I stole most of the guys to dance the night away and my husband plus a few friends stayed in and watched Mean Girls dressed as a cheerleaders.”
“I’m having a pamper day and afternoon tea with the girls and then we are going out for dinner & after dinner we join the stags for drinks all night (boys are doing their own thing during the day)”
So if you want to join forces for a stag/hen do, go for it, and use these brides’ awesome ideas for inspiration!
