Top 5 Sten Do Destinations
Where's best for a mixed group?
The Sten (or Hag) party is the latest evolution in pre wedding celebrations. Rather than the trouble and expense of arranging two separate holidays, the Sten party is a combination of a Stag party and a Hen Party so couples with combined friendship groups can all party together, rather than apart. This means that you can combine your budgets so you can go bigger and better and get more bang for your buck! Because many couples share the same friendship groups Sten do’s mean that everyone can be invited to the party and no one gets left out! Sten do’s also offer the advantage that no one has to worry about what their other half is up to on the weekend, as you’ll be right there enjoying it with them. The Sten do is a great way of everyone getting to know everyone else in advance of the big day and, if you have roughly even size groups of Hens and Stags, it is a great opportunity for some “Battle of the Sexes” style team battles! So here are our top 5 Sten Do Destinations.
