The cost of living crisis has impacted the public in many ways. Now, because of this, people are looking to cut costs in every aspect of their lives.

Last year, the average spending cost of a UK wedding was over £17,000, and this figure does not include the costs associated with celebrating the stag and hen night.

This summer, the stag and hen industry has continued to thrive, mostly due to weddings being postponed in previous years due to the pandemic.

Matt Mavir, managing director of Last Night of Freedom, Britain’s leading stag and hen organisers said: “2022 has been a year like no other. After Covid restrictions ended, the last three years have basically rolled into one.”

However, now that the cost of living has increased, people are going to be more likely to look for a more budget-friendly stag and hen night. Matt said: “The cost of living crisis is hammering households across the country, so in 2023 there could be more demand for budget-friendly stag and hen destinations.

“We’ve already taken a lot of bookings for 2023 in destinations where your money stretches a bit further – be that in accommodation or the price of a pint.”
