The passing of stag envy: why you shouldn’t be jealous of their antics
We bid them off on their stag do, set off for our cultured meal and spend the evening enjoying prosecco just to stop us wondering what they’re up to. On top of the suspicion there’s also a tiny slice of envy; we’ve all watched ‘The Hangover’ and laughed hysterically at the antics of the lads on tour. Of course, we love spending the evening with our closest friends and catching up, but there’s always that little part in us that wishes we were riding around in a stolen police car, sneaking around Mike Tyson’s house and finding a naked man in our car boot. Essentially ‘The Hangover’, without the tiger (and the missing tooth, and the unknown baby… we could go on). We’re not saying that we’re about to buy our flights to Vegas, but there’s always been the stereotype saying that stags know how to have fun on a much bigger scale than hens do.
However, the launch of ‘Bridesmaids’ last year put a big old dent in this stereotype. We loved the hilarious adventures that the bride-to-be and her BFF’s got up to, from stopping the plane to Megan’s impulsive ‘I’m glad he’s single because I’m going to climb that like a tree’. It shone a spotlight on hen parties and that actually, we women do have as much, if not more fun than stag parties do. Maybe we had some stag envy before (they’re just much louder about what went on than we are), but now we’re starting to really see that our hen parties are without-a-doubt the place to be! Why would we want to drink beers while wearing an itchy mankini and trying to explain to the police why your ‘friends’ kidnapped you? It’s all about the hilarious chat, the exotic cocktails and a fun night that may actually be remembered. So why wait – get booking your hen party now and say ‘hasta la vista’ to stag envy!
