Organising hen dos and stag dos can be one of the most stressful but most rewarding parts of planning a wedding.
The fancy dress, the games, the night out… it all helps build excitement for the big day. While some couples would shudder at the thought of being involved in their partner’s pre-wedding debauchery, some couples can think of nothing worse than being apart from their future spouse so close to the wedding.
In this modern world of equality and inclusiveness, there is a solution to wanting to share your stag and hen do experiences: The Sten Party.
What is a Sten Party?
The premise is simple: combining a stag party and a hen party so that the entire wedding party can come together in one big party.
Sometimes referred to as a ‘Hag Do’, the playful concept has been gaining popularity in recent years.
It can be the perfect way to bring all of the wedding party together before the big day to get to know each other and let their hair down before the big day.
A Sten Party can be a unisex affair, a bit of stag and a bit of hen or fun gender-typical activities that, when participated in by the opposite, results in a barrel of laughs and plenty of fun.
Why Have a Sten Party?
There are loads of reasons for choosing to blend both stags and hens into one big, pre-wedding blowout. But make sure you’re choosing to do so for the right reasons.
For example, if you and your fiancé/fiancée have been friends for a long time, chances are you have the same group of friends. Why split everyone up when you can bring everyone together for a weekend of partying.
It can also be a great way to cut costs if you’re saving the bulk of your budget for the big day. Pool your resources for one massive weekend rather than paying for two separate parties.
Always ensure that you’re choosing a Sten Party to double the fun and not because you don’t trust your husband or wife to be on a wild night with their friends.
