5 "out of the box" Stag & Hen dos.

*This is a collaborative post* 

Out with the traditional Stag & Hen dos which are all about the alcohol, alcohol and more alcohol. Bring on the new, I am talking Don't Tell The Bride style, go-karting, boat trips, assault courses and tons more. Without the side of drama and lack of budget. Essential Adventure is a site full to the brim of fantastic Stag & Hen Dos. As most of you probably now know, I am engaged and hopefully planning on getting married in the near future and of course, I have wedding planning Pinterest boards on the go (which you can find here), as I am enjoying wedding planning I thought it would be fun to start to showcase some wedding based content on my blog, starting with Stag & Hen dos and today I am going show you my top 5 "out of the box" picks. 

Pizza Making Party:

Of course, something relating to pizza had to make it into my top 5, a pizza making party might not sound like most exciting thing from the title but once you find out what is in store you'll soon change your mind. With head to head challenges, prosecco, starters, your own pizza creation and pizza host with a private area to get creating your masterpieces. If you're interested in learning more about hosting your own pizza making party you can find out more by visiting the Essential Adventure site. 

Totally Wiped Out: 

Most of us have seen the TV Show Total Wipeout, It's A Knockout and Gladiators, this is a spin-off of that course that you can hire for your hen or stag party. With 6 action-packed activites including a sweeper arm and punch wall, the activities will last 3 hours in total, you can really let your competitive side out. It looks like such a fun day and not one you are going to forget in a hurry. It looks a lot less dangerous than Total Wipeout too, that programme was intense.   

Grease Dance Class: 

A huge fan of the film Grease like I am? The ideal Hen do for you is here. Learn some of the moves from the hit musical including We Go Together and also a traditional hand jive. It's a great start to any hen do and you get to feel the part with the pink ladies jackets being supplied for the class. If Grease isn't your thing there are a ton of other dance classes you can pick from including Dirty Dancing and Burlesque. 

Life Drawing Classes: 

Out with the strippers and in with the Life Drawing Classes which features a few drinks, a naked model (female or male) and a humorous experience. Plus it allows you to find out who really is skilled when it comes to art. This is an experience and perfect as an activity at either a Hen or Stag do and can be a great warm-up before heading off to do more activities.

Go Ape Adventures:  

The final activity on the list is Go Ape Adventures which has recently expanded to having 28 around the country so there is likely to be one nearby for you to visit. The classic Go Ape experience usually lasts between 2-3 hours and is set in a stunning forest. With zip-wires and tackling the crossings (just like Tarzan), you'll be having heaps of fun the whole time. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today about 5 out of the box Stag & Hen dos and I'd love to know what you did for your hen do/ what you plan on doing if you are getting married in the future.
