Sober Hen and Stag parties are on the rise - here's our top picks on ways to celebrate πŸŽ‰

Hen and stag parties are well known to be pretty wild β€” lots of drinking, tacky props, embarrassing games and even strippers. But these types of nights out are becoming less popular, with our research revealing a growing preference for sober or alcohol-reduced celebrations.

Over half of the people we surveyed (59%) think hen and stag parties can be just as enjoyable without heavy drinking, and over a third (35%) would prefer an outdoorsy and chilled vibe over traditional boozy celebrations.

Spa breaks, group staycations and immersive experiences are just some alternatives to a wild night out.

Sten Parties

It has become increasingly popular in recent years for the bride and groom-to-be to celebrate their hen and stag parties as one.

People may celebrate by enjoying any of the above, or even heading off on a trip in the UK or abroad.🌍


With people trying their best to be environmentally friendly, this is increasingly carrying over into decisions about travel and entertainment.
