Following research, findings by the UK's leading savings site VoucherCodes.co.uk reveal that, when it comes to stag, hen and sten parties, there are several cities that go hand in hand with these pre-wedding celebrations.
Many of those painting the town white this year are set to make their mark in London (21%), with Manchester (11%) and Liverpool (9%) following closely behind. Those travelling further afield, are set to hit the streets of Dublin (5%) and Ibiza (4%).
Despite such glam locations making it to the list of most popular destinations, a third of disgruntled guests say costs have now gotten out of hand. Almost one in three (32%) say the cost of a UK party is almost the same as going abroad, while 24% feel an expectation from the happy couple to go overseas.
Anita Naik, Lifestyle Editor at VoucherCodes.co.uk commented: "There’s no getting away from the fact that weddings can be expensive occasionsbut there are ways to lower costs and still make it to your favourite friends’ nuptials. Team up with friends for wedding gifts, shop around for deals as soon as you know the date to save money on everything from travel to party shoes, and even rent a designer outfit for as little as £13 a day.
"Above all remember you arefree to choose what events you attend! Never feel obligated to attend every celebration up to the wedding, no one (especially the bride and groom) wants you to break the bank just because they are getting married.
