Congratulations, your best friend has made you his best man but, as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility. You need to send the groom off with a bang and Stag Dos and Speeches is here to help make everything go without a hitch. Skipping over the boring bits, like taking care of the bride's mother, and instead focusing on the areas important to you, the following pages provide all the information you'll need to arrange a bachelor party to remember and deliver a killer speech to have them rolling in the aisles. Packed with ideas for a whole range of different parties - from booze blow-outs in Vegas to action-packed outdoor activities in the countryside - every stage of the event is covered in depth. So whether you want advice on budgeting, how to book a restaurant for large groups of people or want to know what the Spanish is for "can I speak to my lawyer?", the practical information on offer will steer you clear of any pitfalls that might stop you and your friends having the best time possible. And then there's the speech...the time when the pressure is really on as all eyes are upon you. With practical tips on what to say and what not to say (exgirlfriends are definitely off-limits!), who to thank, how to write jokes, dealing with nerves and more, you'll be able to write a first-class speech that will make your groom proud to have you chosen you as his best man.
