For our 2018 list of top stag destinations, we have chosen some of the best destinations from around Europe. We haven't ranked these destinations in a particular order but each of these top stag destinations offers great options for partying and activities. Whether you're looking to party in full beast mode or going for a more laid-back getaway with the boys you're guaranteed to find great ideas to take your stag do to the next level.
There's more to being a best man than just throwing a killer stag party. While you may not get tied down making decisions over the finer details, there's plenty of best man responsibilities to keep you busy in the run-up to the wedding, as well as on the day – from organising the groomsmen to paying the vendors.
So you popped the question and she said yes? Congratulations! You might think you can sit back and relax for the next few months while your wife-to-be does the planning, but we're afraid it doesn't work like that these days. The groom has a lot more responsibilities than just turning up on the day and saying ‘I do'. And let's face it, you're not exactly going to impress your bride if you're not willing to get stuck in with the wedding planning.
As the best man, planning the stag do is one of your most sacred duties. Sure, minding the rings and a making the best man's speech are huge responsibilities but planning and pulling off the stag do is the first opportunity for your performance as best man to be judged. And you will be judged. The bride, the bridesmaids, the groom's parents and crucially the bride's parents are going to be paying close attention. Mess this up and you may likely find yourself relegated to page boy.
