The main goal of a Stag and Doe party is usually to cover fees for the wedding. But you can only do so if you budget carefully and cover all the costs related to the event. There are so many things to think about when planning such an event, and it can be difficult to cover all the aspects. So I decided to list the most common expenses related to Stag and Doe parties so you can turn in a nice profit.
First of all, invitations and flyers are essential when you’re throwing a party. They are the first impression of the party and can literally make or break your event. Make sure you know exactly how much stag and doe invites you’ll need and don’t be stingy, nice looking invites can go a long way.
Hall rental fees and bartender fees should also be at the top of your list. Get a sense of the type of people you want invited at your party and choose the location carefully. Make sure the location is in a good part of town and go for a locale with a good reputation as the venue will be one of the main selling points of your party.
Before you chose a certain location, make sure you know if the security and liquor costs are included. Having to cover for security and liquor yourself can really hurt your bottom line. If you’ve never thrown that kind of party before, it can be hard to know how much liquor you’ll need, so I suggest your go with a package that includes liquor so your bar doesn’t run dry by the end of the night.
Now, you’ll have to choose a DJ. Depending on your budget, you can hire a well known DJ or your run of the mill DJ service. However, if you go for an average DJ, you run the risk of having an average night. So if you can’t hire a big name DJ, you can always provide a play list to whatever DJ you wish to hire so you can have control over the music. Not everybody likes the same type of music, so make sure you know your audience well.
Of course, there are some other expenses that you will need to take into consideration when you’ll be planning your next Stag and Doe, but the ones I mentioned earlier should be at the on top of your list. But that doesn’t mean that you should neglect the smaller details, since they can make or break your evening. So plan carefully and your Stag and Doe will be the party of the year!
