    Nah! It’s not common where we live, so it wasn’t really even considered for us

    I was thinking to but I never liked attending them myself with all the pressure to buy tickets and spend money. I was thinking instead of doing sort of like a online raffle with friends and family and even friends of friends. People could pay $5+ to participate in a raffle and we would post photos of prizes and then choose the winners online on video for people to view I think it could be a different and more approachable way to save a few bucks Smiley smile

    Yes! IMO it’s an excuse for all my closest friends and family to get together and have fun.
    I don’t drink and neither does my fiancé so our stag/stagette parties are not going to be the traditional drinking events.
    Seven of us women are travelling to Disneyland in January for about a week. That will be my stagette. I’m over the moon about it!

    NOPE! Stags are popular here but not stag and does, so definitely not for us.

    This really is not a thing in Alberta! I only heard about this for the first time last year. It seems kind of tacky...

    Same! I had heard the term, but I had no idea what it actually entailed until I joined a wedding website.

    I’m not crazy about the idea of a bachelor/bachelorette party either; I think I will either have one or a bridal shower, but not both.

    No, I'd never heard of this one until hanging around on wedding websites. We probably won't do bachelor/ette parties either.

    Neither one of us are interested in it.
    We can’t wrap our heads around fundraising for our wedding.

    Nop. Again, that's not something that's popular in French-Canadian culture.

    We're having a Jack & Jill/ Stag & Doe. I'm really excited for it and think it will be a lot of fun. We also really would appreciate the money Smiley tongue . But the main thing is having everyone together to have a good time.

    HECK NO! MANITOBA SOCIAL FOR THE WIN!!!!!! Socials just do way better in raising money and are known to be a good time when compared to a stag & doe or Jack & jill. Just a fact Smiley tongue
