Las Vegas Stag Do and Bachelor Party Guide

Stag or bachelor parties used to be held the night before the wedding at the local pub. The groom ran the risk of being left abandoned, possibly naked, and certainly humiliated by his friends the night before the biggest day of his life. Generally, things have moved on over the years.

A quiet pre-wedding meal has become the new norm. The actual stag party, however, has moved to a major event several weeks, or even months, before the big day. Las Vegas has become a major destination for bachelor parties. 

So, how exactly do you “do” a Las Vegas stag do?  Our guide will take you through what you need to know. But, remember what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Well, at least until you plaster the photos all over your social media, and brag about it as soon as you get home.  

How to get to Las Vegas

From the UK British Airways and Virgin fly several times a day, as well as FinnAir, Iberia and American Airlines.  We flew with BA from Heathrow. If you fly direct, it’s a 10 hour 45-minute flight from the UK, but only 9 hours 50mins on the return. Whilst we are sure you’ll be itching to get checked into your hotel and out on the town, US immigration can take up to 2 hours at busy times, so factor that into your timings.  Fortunately, McCarran airport is only a short cab/Uber from the Vegas strip, so you’ll be in the bar in no time.

Where to Stay in Vegas

Las Vegas is famed for its choice of hotels. Expedia[1] will give you the full range and best price. We stayed at Park MGM, the newly renovated Monte Carlo.  In 2016 MGM announced that the property was receiving a complete rebrand, aimed at the younger, millennial visitor to Las Vegas and therefore a great choice for a hen or stag do. A major part of this rebrand was the Park MGM ball room, which books some of the biggest acts around, with residencies including Lady Gaga and Cher.  Park MGM is relatively small by Vegas standards, with less than 3,000 rooms, with room options including some suites. Our King Room was nicely furnished, with a great view of the T-Mobile Arena.  [2]

Park_MGM_LobbyParkMGM has a variety of eating options, including Primrose which serves French-style food, where we ate the first morning. Also worth investigating is Best Friend a Korean BBQ restaurant from chef Roy Choi. One of the resorts stand out features is Eataly, an Italian marketplace that was very busy whenever we passed by.

For an even more upscale Las Vegas stag do, NoMad[3] is a different hotel on the top 4 floors of Park MGM with a separate entrance.  Priced accordingly, NoMad has some fine dining options that are sure to make a good impression.

What To Do in the Evening

ParkMGM is positioned centre strip, next door to the T-Mobile Arena, so we were ideally placed to watch the Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL team play ice hockey.

Las Vegas Stag Do Ice Hockey.

The atmosphere of an ice hockey game makes it a great marquee event for your stag or bachelor party. There’s a lively pre-game tailgate party outside the T-Mobile Arena, and inside the stadium as face-off approached, the atmosphere rivalled a Premier League football match.  

Las Vegas has an incredible array of nightlife. Clubbers should head to Tao at the Venetian which hosts a huge line up of world famous DJs. You’ll need to dress to impress to get into any club in Las Vegas, but particularly if your stag party group is large. Expect a mix of celebs and party people, amazing sound and light shows, and the opportunity to max out your credit cards with champagne parades.  [4]

Group Activities

The Linq Las Vegas targets a younger crowd so is a great choice for any stag do, and is definitely a good option for groups of all sizes. Located centre strip on the site of the old Imperial Palace hotel, it’s always buzzing and has some great food and drink options. For the adventurous, the Fly Linq zip line got our adrenaline pumping. We followed this up with the High Roller, Las Vegas’s version of the London Eye, with incredible views of the strip. For groups, the open bar version is a great upgrade for the 30-minute ride. [5][6][7]

Maverick Helicopters - StripEarlier in the day, we had booked Maverick helicopters for a night time flight down the strip.  To help make sure the helicopter is loaded correctly you’ll need to give Maverick your weight. In hindsight, we should have added an extra stone on due to all the Vegas-style eating and drinking we’d done. The incredible views of the strip and downtown on this 45-minute excursion was one of the highlights of our trip. Maverick will also take you to the Grand Canyon – it’s certainly the quickest way to get there. [8]

A Change of Pace in Vegas

A great way to start a day is with a long brunch washed down with great drinks and cocktails. The boozy brunch at the Aria covered three superb restaurants at Aria (Bardot , Herringbone and Lemongrass) and to say we were full afterwards is an understatement. Donald was a great host, providing not only information on the food, but also a wealth of Las Vegas news and history. The Lip Smacking Foodie Tours company also do evening and lunch tours, perfect for all kinds of groups. See more here [9][10][11][12]

Your Vegas stag wouldn’t be complete without an Instagram snap at the Las Vegas sign.  A quick a cab or Uber from the strip, ask them to stay while you take those photos. Beware that the queue isn’t official, just walk to the front and take your own photos (the guys asking to do it for you will be expecting a tip). 

A trip to America isn’t complete without shopping, and stag do parties in Las Vegas are well catered for. Take a cab to the Premium Outlet North, which has great prices on Ralph Lauren, Nike, North Face and Adidas amongst others.  It’s only a 15-minute ride, but if you prefer to stay on the strip, The Forum Shops at Caesars have Abercrombie and Fitch, Nike, Lacoste and many others in a Roman setting. 

Unexpected Vegas

A couple of miles out into the desert, Seven Magic Mountains[13] is a thought provoking free art installation by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, offering amazing colours out in the Mojave desert. After a hectic 24 hours by the strip, this was a real change of pace.

Las Vegas Stag Do DesertWhile most of your trip is likely to involve partying, a good idea is to balance that out by re-energising your body. We did a class at Soul Cycle[14] at the Wynn, and it was a full on exercise experience.  You’ll be able to eat that buffet guilt-free after an hour pounding the spin bike.

If you need something cultural to balance out any excess then the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art[15] offers that respite. We enjoyed a peaceful hour taking in Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, one of the finest art installations in America.

By this stage, we were thinking that we’d eaten enough for the day (week) already, but afternoon tea at the Waldorf Astoria[16] confirmed that we can always find room for cake. Open from 11am to 4:15pm, with incredible views down the strip, the Astoria boasts a full menu of tea options, fantastic cakes and a lovely relaxing atmosphere. In a pure Vegas moment, a couple even got engaged whilst we were enjoying a classic English afternoon tea. We wonder if they’ll be making a return to Vegas for their bachelor and bacherlorette parties?

Restaurants in Vegas

Las Vegas is home to multiple 5 star dining options, and Spago at Bellagio Wolfgang Puck[17] is set right upon the Bellagio Fountains.  We enjoyed incredible food, and when the fountains fired, experienced a true Vegas moment.

The Cosmopolitan[18] is one of the high end Las Vegas hotels, so a stag do visit is a must. Before dinner we found the hidden Ghost Donkey[19] bar to try out their enormous range of tequila-based cocktails.

STK - The CosmopolitanFor a large group like ours, dinner at STK not only provided sensational food, but great music and atmosphere. Another Cosmopolitan eating option is Beauty and Essex. Hidden in the back of a pawn shop, book early to reserve one of the two jewellery box-themed rooms. [20][21]

On the next evening, we ate at Catch at Aria.[22] Located in a beautiful setting, with a menu of mixed Asian and French cuisine, the service (as with all the restaurants we went to) was exceptional.

Downtown Vegas

Downtown is an area you should visit whether you are Vegas veterans or first-timers. The original hotel area in Vegas, legendary casino’s such as Binions, Four Queens and Downtown Grand are now complemented by updated resorts such as The D. A new hotel is also under construction at Circa.  Full of great value eating and drinking , we definitely recommend finding time to head Downtown.

We visited the Speakeasy at the Mob Museum. A real undiscovered treat located just off of Fremont Street. Not only is the museum fascinating, highlighting Vegas’s past, but the Speakeasy itself also started the whole Vegas speakeasy trend. Think Prohibition-era vibe and amazing cocktails.  [23]

Last Day in Vegas

Spa Mandalay - Wet AreaAfter all the excitement, the Spa at Mandalay Bay [24]was our oasis of calm. What better way to finish off a stage than to refresh and revitalise before heading home? We enjoyed a hydrating facial, setting us up for the flight back to London.

No Las Vegas stag would be complete without a visit to a steak house. So as a send-off  Delmonico steak house at the Venetian was our last meal. For groups, we recommend the private room overlooking the kitchen, which offers a wonderful tasting menu with accompanying wines. As a bonus, you can wander along the canal in the Venetian on your way back to the hotel. [25]

A four night stay at ParkMGM[26] starts from £400 based on a King room on a bed only basis. Flights can be found for as little as £400 per person return.

24 Colorful Wedding Cakes That Are Almost Too Pretty to Eat

You’ve got it all figured out—the perfect wedding dress[1], the best venue, the prettiest flowers[2], even the place cards you’ll be using on your big day. But sometimes, the last thing you think about when planning your wedding is what kind of wedding cake[3] you want. The choices can be overwhelming, to say the least. Sure, you could go for a classic white buttercream, maybe with some fresh florals[4]. But what if you don't consider yourself a "traditional" bride? What if you don't want something that's so completely classic? In that case, these colorful wedding cakes will be right up your alley.

While you could forgo the cake altogether and serve a different kind of dessert—pies perhaps!?[5]—if you consider yourself both an untraditional bride AND you still want a cake, an easy way to modernize the white, tiered, tried-and-true dessert is to make a simple switch. Just add color! Non-white wedding cakes can bring a ton of personality and fun to your reception. Plus, they look ahh-maze-ing in wedding photos!

Colorful wedding cakes can come in the form of something bold (we love a deep charcoal—not for the faint of heart!) or something more subtle (a pretty pastel). Chocoholic brides can opt for a chocolate buttercream or fondant. And you can even incorporate a non-white pattern (such as a pretty and modern marbled base) into your post-wedding dessert[6] for an unexpected use of hues.

A delicious advantage of colorful wedding cakes? These anything-but-vanilla, big-day desserts allow for you and your baker to create a confection that's truly you. After all, you're already injecting your and your fiancé's personalities into so many aspects of your big day, so why not your cake as well? If summer is your favorite season or you're throwing a destination wedding, choose a tropical hue for your colorful wedding cake to match your style and wedding theme[7]. If you consider yourself to bear modern sensibilities, an edgy black wedding cake will fit your personal style to a tee. See? There's a non-white wedding cake out there for every bride.

A pop of color has never tasted so sweet! Here are some of our favorite examples of colorful wedding cakes.

Luckily, there are endless sweetheart table ideas out there that'll suit any pair of newlyweds.

For your sweetheart table, you and your partner can cuddle up on a love seat instead of your venue's regular banquet chairs[2].

And not only do sweetheart tables offer you and your new spouse a bit of intimacy during dinner, but they're also a great way to accent the rest your wedding decor and elevate your reception for a fraction of the price.

Toasting Fizz: English Sparkling Wine Taste Test

Have you thought about your toasting fizz for your wedding? English sparkling wine is really coming into its own in recent years and fast become a favourite amongst brides, over champagne. We’ve rounded up the best English sparkling wines for you to choose from for your wedding, including costs for cases of six bottles.

toasting glasses of fizz English sparkling wine

What is English Sparkling wine?

“A good English Sparkling wine is classed as a good wine in its own sense and has rivalled some of the better-known Champagnes,” says Sommelier Fabio Arcari of Club Vini. 

“Although the grape varietals are the same as what is used in Champagne -Predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – and the method is usually the traditional method of Champagne the taste, I feel, is unique, due to the unique climate of the UK,” Says Fabio.

“On a whole, I feel the cool temperatures allow for a more elegant, fresh taste in the wine whilst still keeping the toasty, brioche sensation and also bringing more zesty flavours like apple, lemon etc”.

toasting the speech English sparkling wine

Should you age English Sparkling wine?

“Although I feel that the majority of English sparkling wine can age as well as any other sparkling wine I feel that its unique freshness is what sets it apart from the others. Therefore ageing is not always necessary as the wine is good to drink young whilst still vibrant and fresh in flavour.” Says Fabio.

“Ageing will, of course, bring out more complex flavours of toasty, nutty, dried fruit sensations which is fine for a select few but personally I feel they should be drunk young on the whole.”

This Sentimental Wedding Trend Lets Brides Personalize Their Wedding Dress With Secret Messages

We're all for a bride who personalizes her wedding[1] at every turn. And from signature drinks[2] that boast your and your partner's favorite spirit, to serving guests local treats[3], there are countless ways to custom your day. One super sweet way to get personal? For a meaningful touch, brides are now personalizing their wedding dresses with secret messages, oh-so subtly embroidered, sewn, or printed onto the fabric of their gowns. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind, bespoke frock that couldn't be more you— and this sentimental wedding trend is seriously taking off. Even celebrities are getting in on it!

Whether it's a romantic quote you hold close to your heart, a love letter to your partner, your wedding date, or your and your fiancé's initials, there are tons of touching details you can add to the fabric of your wedding dress. Take inspiration from Priyanka Chopra. When the star married[4] Nick Jonas (the first time)[5], she wore a lacy white wedding dress by Ralph Lauren[6]. According to People[7], Chopra had the designer add some secret messages to the intricate fabric of her gorgeous gown, including her and Jonas's wedding date, her husband's full name, the names of her parents, "Om Namah Shivay" (a Hindi mantra), and the words "family," "hope," "compassion," and "love."

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone[8] also included a touching detail to her wedding attire, designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. As bridal shop owner Aashni Shah Doshi tells Metro UK[9], "Deepika had 'Sada Saubhagyavati Bhava' on her veil for her wedding, around the trim of her veil... It translates to 'May you always be lucky as a married woman.'"

Elsewhere, other (non-famous) brides are also adapting the sentimental wedding trend to their own nuptials. With the help of designers such as Hermione de Paula[10], who has made this ultra-custom embroidery a stunning signature of her gowns, more and more brides-to-be are adding similarly sweet secret messages to their wedding dresses—and we can't get enough of these heartfelt touches.

Thinking of also giving your gown hidden meaning? Perhaps write an emotional message to your partner and have it printed on the fabric of your gown, or ask about getting your favorite song lyrics embroidered along the train. If you don't want the message to affect the design of your dress, consider having it sewn onto the lining, where it'll be an intimate secret between only you and your partner. Take a peek at the personalized wedding dresses below to get some ideas!

How To Get A Guaranteed YES This Valentines Day!

How To Get A Guaranteed YES This Valentines Day! 7 Ways To Pop The Question.

With almost a third of women saying Valentine’s Day is there preferred day for being proposed to, Events planner and founder of Your planning Angel[1], gives us her favourite proposal ideas to set you apart from the crowd!

Valentines day proposal

The drone proposal

If you love your tech, attach (securely!) the engagement ring to your quadcopter and have it flown down to you while out walking with your partner. Appear to be as surprised by the drone as your partner is until it gets within reaching distance. Then, pull the ring off and pop the question.

The treasure hunt

If you love the outdoors, create a treasure hunt around one of your favourite locations. You could openly plan this with your partner as a fun activity with a load of friends. But, at the end of the trail, surprise them all with your proposal.

The pet proposal

If you already live together and have a pet cat or dog, get home early, pop some Champagne in the fridge and prepare a beautiful meal (or have the number of your favourite take away on speed dial). Put the ring on your pet’s collar and have them greet your partner as they walk in the door. As soon as they spot the ring, propose and celebrate your engagement with a chilled glass of bubbly and a great meal.

The puzzle proposal

This is one of my favourites. Embrace your inner geek by planning a relaxing afternoon at home, then casually suggest playing a puzzle. Bring out a personalised puzzle that, when completed, reads ‘Will you Marry me?’ Works really well with Scrabble, too.

Say it with cake

If your partner has a sweet tooth, how about ordering a batch of cupcakes spelling out ‘Will You Marry Me?’ in frosting and have them waiting on their arrival home from work?
[2]

The fake photoshoot

Tell your partner you’ve won a romantic couple’s photo shoot. What you’ve really done is hired a photographer to take photos of you in one of your favourite locations to capture your proposal. Get dressed up and then propose mid-shoot. You could then have a romantic engagement photo shoot to celebrate.

The Valentine’s proposal

On the days leading up to February 14th , plant Post-it notes or Valentine’s cards with sweet messages written on them around the house. Then on Valentine’s Day itself, present them with a box of chocolates containing… you guessed it… the ring.
