Spring is here and with it, thousands of couples up and down the country are looking for great wedding, hen and stag do ideas. We’re proud to announce that we’ll be joining in the festivities too this March. You can visit us at the KCOM Stadium Wedding Fayre on Thursday 22nd March in Hull. From 6:30 to 9:30pm, we’re excited to show you our list of alternative hen do and stag party ideas for more discerning tastes.

Alternative hen and stag do ideas

The age of feather boas and tying grooms to a lamppost are officially over! According to a 2016 study by Blue Chip Holidays, 85 per cent of brides and bridesmaids admitted to wanting a classier brand of pre-nuptial celebrations. Reasons for this included spending quality time with family and friends, as well as avoiding embarrassment. A similar report published in The Guardian revealed that stag party-goers felt “uncomfortable” with the lad culture that has become so synonymous with pre-wedding festivities.

So what’s the alternative? If you can’t make it to Hull on 22nd March, we’ve come up with our top events hospitality packages for treating your closest friends to a send-off to remember.
