Wedding Guide Hen, Buck & Stag Party Ideas
Whether you call it a stag weekend or hen party in the UK or a hen/buck party in Australia (in Canada, it's called stagette)... the aim of all the pre-wedding hoopla comes down to mutual friends raucously celebrating the prospective bride and groom.
While a bit more subdued in the US and Canada, the traditional rite of passage in the UK and Australia remains an all-out rowdy goodbye to freedom!
And what better reason to party?
An excuse to party AND dress up, you probably know a hen party is taking place at the local pub simply by the bridal veils, bunny ears, and pink boas worn by the bridal and bridesmaids. The gents, meanwhile, have in recent years made it a habit to stretch the stag party into an entire stag weekend.
In fact, a booming industry has grown around the former "night out with the blokes for a piss up" into airlines reservations, hotel packages and party locations for a full 48 hours of getting away from it all.
