What Is a Stag and Hen Party?
Many who have experienced, planned or attended a Stag and Hen party are not always sure what the terms mean exactly or where they originated from. Interestingly enough the word “Hen” dates back as far as the 1620’s and was a slang term for ‘Lady’. For men the term “Stag” can be found in as many as three different cultures and originally meant ‘male in his prime’ or ‘exclusively male’.
Stag and Hen parties have been enjoyed by many for centuries but only broke free of its traditional expectations quite recently as the early 60’s and 70’s. In the 90’s Stag and Hen parties Became equally as Important for women as men and a necessary tradition to have before a wedding. Stag and Hen parties are much like a bachelor and bachelorette party however are typically planned later than Stag and Hen celebrations and with a more relaxed feel to it all.
In the 2000’s Stag and Hen parties adopted an “anything goes” attitude which sparked the wave of stretch limos, crazy parties, strippers, genital shaped candy and so much more scandalous and crazy humor. It is a way you and your loved ones can come together to celebrate the last moments of “free” life. If you are celebrating with both Stags and Hens, co-ed parties are an option for you. When the groups mix they call this a ‘Hag Do’ which is actually the more popular option. So, why not mix it up and go all out?
