Putting together a guest list
Now that you have decided on a destination, your next step is to put together a guest list. The perfect number of guests for a stag weekend is usually under 20, so only invite people who are in the close circle of the groom’s friends. Another important consideration to make is whether or not you should invite guests from the bride’s family. Inviting the father of the bride is becoming increasingly popular nowadays, but it’s your call!
Now that you have your guest list, you will need to start contacting everyone that will be attending the stag weekend. The easiest way to do this is to create a designated group on a social networking website such as Facebook; this will make it easier to exchange information and ideas with everyone. You will also need to obtain conformation that they are attending prior to making any further plans.
Choosing a date for the stag weekend
Due to the amount of people who will be attending the stag weekend, it’s recommended that you choose a date as far in advance as possible. The best way to choose dates is to ask every member on the guest list what dates they can’t attend and then plan around their responses. The best time to visit Newquay on a stag weekend is during the summer, making for great beer garden weather and an amazing holiday atmosphere!
Planning your transport
The majority of stag groups who visit Newquay travel here via bus, this is the most practical option, especially if you’re in a group of 15-20 people. Ring a handful of local minibus companies and obtain a quote from each. Travelling separately by car isn’t ideal for group bonding, which is what great stag weekends are all about!
