Wow that's so interesting, thanks for the info! And best of luck with your Social
Its nice when others throw it for you and you have nothing to do but enjoy yourselves. Our MOHs with the girls at the salon surprised us with one though I created the tickets and sign for them. It was worth it though it wasn't much of a return after the whole event. The more people that show up and play toonie or loonie games along with prizes and tickets sold will help for sure. Games and raffles are also done at these events.
Search around for the lowest price of DJ and venue to cater to your need to create a higher revenue return. Prizes can be donated by companies if you present a letter or ask those you know personally. It will help towards your wedding costs.
Good luck to you!
From what I've heard - a Stag & Doe tend to have games and are a bit more like a fair/carnival where a Manitoba Social is a big party that revolves around drinking and winning prizes.
Here is a link to some of the games that can be found at a Stag & Doe: https://www.thebridalguide.ca/2016/03/fun-stag-and-doe-game-ideas/
At a MB Social, it's basically a big party - I've heard some Stag & Doe's are held in the afternoon sometimes or if they are in the evening some of them have the lights left on.. (Not all - but I have heard of some.) The usual time for a MB Social is 8pm - 1am and most of the money is made off of selling liquor/booze tickets. It's basically a good excuse to go out and get drunk without having to go to a club where there would no doubt be a bunch of 18 year olds.
My Social will have about 300 people attending - and I would say a good half of them will not be attending our wedding.
All in all,
Stag & Doe = Casual Drinks and Games
Social = Night Club with prizes
(Again, this is what I have heard the differences are - results may vary )
I have no insight on the actual question here since I'm from Alberta - but I'm just curious...what is the difference between a Wedding Social and Stag & Doe?
I will be having a wedding social - which is similar to a Stag and Doe, but not quite the same (regardless of what others say...).
With that being said, socials make MAD profit if done correctly (think around the $5000-$10,000 mark). Stag & Doe's on the other hand I have heard that because of the differences in what they are, it's not always the case.
I would think that either way, it's always a good idea to try and make money if you can/ if it's socially acceptable.
