1. Compulsory fancy dress
It’s customary for the stag to be dressed up in some sort of embarrassing get-up, so be prepared to stand out like a sore thumb on your stag party.

3. A stripper might (read definitely) be involved
Don’t be alarmed if a private lap dance or stripper is arranged as part of your stag party. It is tradition, after all, and who are we to argue with tradition?
4. You will be humiliated
The extent of your humiliation depends on how creative and imaginative your mates are. If you have infamously inventive friends, you have every reason to be worried.
5. You will be very drunk
Drinking copious amounts of alcohol is going to be a big part of your weekend. That’s a fact. Whether it is drinking games, dirty pints, Jägerbombs, shots or all of the above, expect a horrific hangover the next day.
6. There will be no time for recovery
Your friends won’t take any prisoners on your stag party, so if you think you will be able to sleep off the hangover the next day, think again. If you imagine downing pints of beer for breakfast, you’re on the right lines.
7. Expect adrenaline-pumping activities
The clue is in the name. A stag do would not be a proper stag do without a macho itinerary. White-water rafting, paintballing, go-karting or operating dangerous weaponry may make it on the list.
8. You might end up with a bald patch
