Stag parties and hen parties can be a lot of fun, with people consuming their fair share of alcohol and bonding with those close to them in a new setting.
Increasingly, however, some people are losing interest in the gender stereotypes surrounding stag or hen parties and want an occasion that is more inclusive.
Let us introduce Fox and Sten parties, two relatively new types of get-togethers that involve a larger group of people and the chance for new party opportunities.
What is a Sten do?
This is when the bride-to-be and the groom-to-be choose not to have a hen do and a stag do so they combine these events to throw one larger party for both sets of groups instead.
They are becoming increasingly popular as couples now want to share these fun activities with each other and both groups of friends and families.
There’s no reason why men and women from either side of the aisle can’t have fun and party together before the big day. It also provides a different avenue of combined fun, with Mr. and Mrs. games being a popular choice, for instance, and drinking activities that involve everybody.
Fewer couples now want to spend a celebratory weekend without their partner. Over time, the activities that happen at these events have changed and so have the attitudes of the people attending.
Book your Sten do with Infinity Weekends for a memorable experience so that everybody due to come on the wedding day is bound to enjoy.
What is a Fox party?
The concept of a Fox party is similar to a Sten do and rids the stereotypical gender tags that are involved with stag parties and hen parties, but they are something that is popular with the LGBTQ+ community.
People don’t have to conform to the gender-specific social activities and behaviours that you might expect. Instead, there is light-hearted fun that is reserved for everybody.
These sorts of events give the attendees a unique chance to get to know each other better before the wedding day and can make the wedding even more fun!
There is some money to be saved with a combined party too. If you know both the people getting married well enough and are lucky enough to be invited to both the hen and the stag do, this could cost you a lot of money. Instead, there are two parties rolled into one for everybody to create these moments together.
