Wedding Etiquette Tips 5


Stag party and its influences
I believe you have gone to a stag party, it's actually a wild party before the actual wedding day. Usually, it is considered to be the final wild thing before the groom embark on the journey of being a responsible married person.

I have seen numerous bridegroom turning up late, miss some of his wedding schedule, popping in several aspirins to cope with the hang-over, left the bride standing alone waiting for the bridegroom and finally miss the first night alone with his bride, all this has happened because of last night's wild party and no one knows how to end it.

It is advisable to hold your stag party a few days before your wedding day rather than the day before. This will enable yourself to really have a good time without worrying about getting up early on the next day. It will also allow time for the hang-over to wear off and leave you clear headed to put on your best self to grace your wedding day.

So who will be organizing the stag party? It will be the bridegroom to initiate the stag party but the best man will have to organize it by bringing all the bridegroom's circle of friends and fixing up a place to party. Obviously the bridegroom will be too busy being caught up by the number of responsibilities towards the wedding day. No stag parties are formal, so be ready to let yourself go. Some of the places to recommend, pubs, hotels, private rooms or maybe a beach party.

Cost of the stag party should be split among the invited guests unless the bridegroom offer to pay for the whole event. The best man will be the one to take care of the finances and made known to everyone what they are in for, whether it is a normal night out or a extravagant dinner, they should be informed as there will be a difference in financial obligations of all the invited guests.

The stag night is an informal affair, so invitation should be made by phone calls. Informed the invited guests of the dress code, that is, if you are going out to sail on an exotic yacht, your guests should be in their casual outfits. The bridegroom will arrive first as a gesture of courtesy then the best man. He may propose the first toast and start the night rolling. Traditionally, the night only belongs to unmarried men, and only men. But nowadays, married men are also involved in this stag party, like I said, it is an informal party, just as long as the bridegroom is happy.

You will be surprise to know that there is a speech to be made even on a night like this. This stag party speech is usually made by the best man. It will be appropriate to make the speech at the middle of the dinner. The best man will stand and make his speech. His speech should include some humor, strange stories about him, funny incidents during the high school days or even how you got to know this generous man.

The best man must be able to handle impromptu situations, quick-witted and amusing. If your best man is not as quick-witted, he is advise to make some planning before the speech, find out more about the bridegroom and add some dash of his own humor.

When the stag party is about to be over, the bridegroom should be the last to leave. The best man have to make sure that everyone's ride is taken care of, and if possible send the bridegroom home if he is too drunk to go home himself. One good honest warning to the party goers: if you are to engage a female entertainer during your stag party, make sure your bride do not learn about this!
