Stag & Best Man Speeches

Having problems finding the material for the Best Mans Speech. How is this for an example:-

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. On behalf of the bridesmaids, I would like to thank Paul for his kind words. For once in my life, I find myself agreeing with him - they look stunning and did an excellent job today.

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Jason. I’ve been Paul’s best friend for nearly 20 years. I’ve known him for a similar period.

And all the time we’ve spent growing up together means that he’s had as much of a part in developing my sense of humour as anyone. So, whilst I have tried to make this speech funny, it’s his fault if it’s not.

I have very fond memories of growing up with Paul. I’ve been his partner in crime on many a wild occasion and, in quieter times, a close confidant to whom he could tell almost anything. And I do mean anything – which has provided me with ample material for my speech this afternoon.

Traditional Stag Night Stunts, Jokes and Pranks

Stag night,pranks, jokes and stunts It's obviously traditional to play some practical jokes on the stag/groom and bride. But remember they can go wrong. These are some famous stunts which backfired:

Bra Ads
Remember Wonderbra's ad campaign featuring Eva Herzegovina's assets? The ads had to be taken down from sites near roundabouts because they were too much of a distraction for male drivers.

Hoover Ads
In 1993 Hoover had the promotion whereby you spend over £100 on a Hoover product and you'd get two free flights. It nearly bankrupt the company as it became too popular. It is estimated to have cost them £20m.

Ice Cool
Birmingham radio station BRMB to publicise its Party in the Park event dreamt a competition. Who could sit on a block of ice the longest. All 4 contestants needed hospital treatment for burns. What were they thinking of?

Don't Leave your House Keys with Your Best Man
One couple left for their honeymoon thinking they had left their house in the safe hands of the Best Man. Wrong decision. The Best Man and friends removed the downstairs front wall of the house drove the couple's car into the lounge and bricked the front of the house back up again. What a great surprise for the couple when they returned home!

Chicken Run
Then there was the best man who, again while the couple were away, came up with the hilarious idea of leaving chickens in the attic of the couples house. They thought they had big mice.

Stag Do Pranks and Jokes played on the Stag

This story has been doing the rounds on the internet. Urban myth or true - I'll leave it to you to decide.

Swedish_skipper In Sweden it is a custom for the groom to be kidnapped and whisked off somewhere for his Stag night, which usually lasts all day and all night, unlike the typical British Stag night where it's all arranged beforehand and everyone goes out, gets drunk and hires a stripper.

The Swedes do it different. The groom has no idea until he gets nabbed. He might be dressed up in something crazy and go do something funny - and then the fun starts!

This particular guy is a keen sailor and when he was kidnapped for his stag night they pasted a false "skippers-beard" on him and put him at the helm of a 60 foot yacht and let him be skipper for the day.

Much beer and fine food was consumed. But nothing nasty happened to him at all. In the evening when they got back on land and were getting cleaned up for the night club, they all had a sauna as is customary in Sweden.

Imagine the groom's horror when he walked into the sauna where his naked buddies were waiting for him only to notice that best mate number one had no pubic hair ... neither did friend two ... nor three ... or four ...

Check that photo more closely! Now what do you see.

Plan the Ideal Stag Weekend with these Top 10 Tips

Is there a right and wrong way?

Plan the ideal stag night in wales with Call of the Wild Ltd Having many years experience of dealing with stag groups there do appear to be a number of basic lessons that can be learnt about planning the perfect stag party and stag do.

1. Confirm Date of the Wedding

Sounds obvious but unfortunately many best men get this wrong and don't leave themselves enough time to arrange things.

2. Confirm Dates for the Stag Night

It is recommended that this should be no closer than two weeks before the wedding although this is flexible. Any later and things can start to go wrong - like the groom doesn't make it to the wedding. As he is your responsibility (best man) do you really want to face the bride and explain what has happened? Setting rough dates with the Groom will also make it easier in narrowing down the numbers for the event.

It is extremely unusual for everyone you invite to be able to make the stag night. The most important person it has to be convenient for is the Groom so the dates have to set to suit him.

3. Who Do You Invite to the Stag Party?

The Groom obviously, his friends from home, school, college, work and family. It is becoming more common for invites to be issued to the Groom's father and , wait for it, the Bride's father - you'll have to ask the Groom about that one!

Don't get too large. Don't forget you're going to have to organise this lot. The bigger the group the more difficult it is to manage. You'll have to collect the money etc. We've all been there and had that one person who is slow to pay.

Top Tips on the Best Way To Recover From A Stag Weekend

Paintball as an activity idea for a stag weekend with call of the Wild  You know from experience blokes struggle to recover from a stag weekend and stag nights. It often takes them days to get back to normal after a weekend of burning the candle at both ends. A combination of over excitement, excessive drinking, unhealthy  diet and of course the obligatory very late nights with little sleep all combine to result in the inevitable - exhaustion or stag night fall out! 

This assumes it is only a weekend. If it is a longer duration trip such as 3 or 4 days then all of the above symptoms are compounded. We've seen it and experienced it many times with the stag do's we cater for. They arrive in a state of high excitement and go completely over the topon the first night being unable to pace themselves. They have a high adrenaline day doing activities on the for instance the Saturday of their weekend and then are raring to go again on the saturday night. Come Sunday afternoon they've hit the wall!

So using our experience we have come up with a list or top tips on how to recover from a stag weekend.

1. Take A Day off Work.

If you are going on a stag weekend which starts on Friday and ends on Sunday then make sure you take the Monday off work. You won't regret it. You'll be good for nothing in nay case in work so you maya s well take the time off to recover.

2. Don't Drive Leave the Car behind

Try a bag a lift with someone else or alternatively take the train or other public transport. I knwo it means travelling with the public but if you've got a long drive after the stag weekend at least you can catch up on some sleep.

3. Pace Yourself - Know Your Limits

Easier said than done if others are pushing the pace. However if you are on a longer duration trip then this is essential if you are to make out alive the other end.

4. Take 40 Winks

What we find is that when stag do's return from activities on Saturday afternoon many of the group with catch up on their lost sleep for a couple hours bewteen returning and leaving for the evening festivities.

5. Don't Mix your Drinks

stag in fancy dress on his stag night with call of the Wild Pure ethanol is metabolically fairly clean. If you consider an alcoholic beverage to be water, ethanol, and a bunch of flavourings, then the identity of some of those flavourings is quite frightening. Red wines contain all sorts of interesting chemicals, leading to the complex flavourings typical of the breed, and although many of these impurities - such as arsenic - are poisonous, they are usually present in such minute quantities as to be relatively harmless. However, if the wine is concentrated by distillation, then as well as increasing the alcohol content, you are also concentrating the poisons. This is the reason that brandy, port and cheap red wine can give you the most monstrous hangovers.

It is also for this reason that people are often advised not to 'mix their drinks'. Different styles of drink have different impurities, and some of them can react with one another in interesting ways. Some common aides memoire from English folklore are:-

  • Don't mix the grape and the grain. Keep wine/port/brandy separate from beer/whisky.

  • Beer then wine, I feel fine. Wine then beer, I feel queer

6. Dehydration

A supply of water is essential to the continuing functioning of the body, and when various organs find that their normal supply of water has been cut off, they steal it from anywhere they can, including the cells of the brain. Although the brain itself cannot feel pain, when it starts to shrink due to water loss, pain-sensitive filaments connecting the outside membranes to the inside of the skull become stretched, giving the symptoms of a headache.

Hope this helps. For more information on stag weekends visit Call of the Wild's website.
