Hen and stag parties 'better than wedding day'Posted on: August 5, 2013 12:11:59
They are a time when the bride and groom are expected to get as drunk as possible and go wild with their friends, so it is no wonder hen and stag parties are very often more popular than the big day itself.
With the all-important code of secrecy adopted at such events, where bridesmaids and groomsmen take the vow to keep schtum about the goings on, some betrothed couples take this opportunity to really let their hair down for one final time.
For this reason, it is perhaps unsurprising that as many as 27 per cent of Britons said they enjoyed their hen or stag do more than their wedding day itself.
A new study from Airkix, which was reported by Female First, revealed the time spent with friends and family before the big day is more enjoyable - as the stress of planning the finest details of a ceremony and reception can be all too stressful for some individuals.
Some 73 per cent of respondents said taking part in something a little different from their normal routine was what made their stag or hen party so exciting.
And for this reason, perhaps unsurprisingly, only six per cent said they would like to have a joint hen and stag do with their partner, as most people value this time away from each other before committing to a lifetime as husband and wife.
Simon Ward, chief executive officer of Airkix, said: "These results show the hen or stag party is still very much part of a traditional wedding preparation, but that more people are looking to do something a little out of the ordinary."
When it came to planning the perfect pre-wedding party, most respondents said good food and drink were two of the main components, while men said attending a sporting event would be high on their wish list.
