They used to last an evening, but now they're as likely to last a weekend. And where once the local pub was considered a reasonable venue, today stag parties often involve a holiday abroad.
So, to say the obvious, you'll probably drink a lot and spend a pile of cash.

Better that than coming home with a stinking hangover to a month of beef spread butties and tap water.
