In terms of events there are a plethora of events you can organize, the only limit is your imagination really. Make sure your idea is open, easily accessible and something that everyone can participate if they wish.
Popular ways of making money are car washes, cookie or bake sales and garage or rummage sales. You can use them but improve the ideas to make more money and promote your hen and stag nights too!
Car washes are OK, but you could offer to recreational vehicles, trucks and boats to make even more money. Everyone is trying to raise money by washing cars. People have invested heavily in their recreational vehicles and other recreational toys. They will often pay much more for then cleaned and you can even add some cash onto the cost and have them enter into a prize draw!

Also – at the hen and stag, sell people insurance on the door. Here’s how it works. At the door, as people are coming in, you have your door people offer them insurance’. It is normally an extra dollar on top of the price of admission. When giving away door prizes, if the person with a winning ticket has insurance, they are free to claim their prize
If however the person with a winning ticket did not get insurance at the door, they must do a forfeit before they can claim their prize, or pay 5 dollars for late insurance. It’s a good way to earn extra funds for the wedding and have some fun as well at the stag and doe party itself.
There is no reason why a stag and doe party cannot run a full day of events with the big party at night being given over to music, food and dancing with events during the day being more community based!
