A Sten Party is when the hen party and stag party go away together to celebrate. A sten party is very common in the gay community but also gaining momentum in the straight community too in the last number of years. it is particularly popular when the 2 parties getting married have the same group of friends. Getting a group together for a Hen or Stag party can be a challenge, Everyone is so busy That is why some of our groups are booking ‘Sten’ parties, which combines the hen and stag. You just chose the same date and destination and we do the rest!
We would always say choose the accommodation based on the type of hen weekend you want regardless of it being a hen/stag or Sten Party. A Sten works really well in a hotel as the guests can choose to share double rooms if they are bringing partners which is often the case with others not bringing partners staying in twin rooms. In saying that if you want Self Catering it can work there too.
When booking a Sten it is worth considering two activities, one for each person with seperate people going to each.
If you are looking for a combined activities the Cube or or the Finding Ted works really well with a mixed group, as we split the group into teams for a battle of the sexes!
Much the same as any event you might be organising make sure you choose something that the person who is getting married would like to do.
Alternatively, you could consider a Drag Show or Draw a Nude while the guys enjoy an outdoor activity of their choice.
The group will dine together as a group before a night out together.
The more the merrier, so this is a great option to suit many couples.
There are so many options to choose from, so please do get in touch to discuss.
A Sten may just be the perfect alternative for your bride and groom/Bride and Bride or Groom and groom to be and will provide a fun filled weekend to be remembered by all.
