Is it ok at your Stag and Doe to just have money won?

Recommended Posts

I'm from Ontario and I still don't understand Stag & Dos. You ask people to come to a party but then pay for things? This is part of the wedding?

A Stag and Doe is also known as a Jack and Jill.

 

It is a party where usually (which i've seen many times in the past) the wedding party throws this party for the couple getting married.  They usually rent a hall, have a bar, play a few games.  Everyone who comes pays an entry fee of usually $10 each or 2 for $15.  There are raffles and prizes.  Some Jack and Jill's have a table set up to bid on prizes like a silent auction.

 

Just a get together.  At the end of the night, the wedding party gets back all their money back for what they put out and anything left over is given to the bride and groom to go towards their wedding.

it's a pre-celebration for the couple . . .I think it's a good idea for destination weddings because it gives those people a chance who aren't able to make it to come out and celebrate with you before your big day (that is of course you aren't having an AHR)

Yes. My FI and I said that we didnt want one, but our wedding party is insisting and we are actually really excited about it now. We were going to do the AHR but that just is not in our budget and this is a fun way to see everyone who cannot go, and those who can. :) All that I have been to in the past have been a blast.

Sounds like a neat idea but we live out of state (New Jersey) and that would mean that we would have to schedule another visit back home (to Texas) on top of all the visits with the holidays, showers etc...

 

I will keep it in mind for the next friend that gets hitched!

 

Thanks for the feedback ladies!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
