Until today, this tradition is still at large and by no means it has no plans of being forgotten any moment soon. In actuality, stag parties have evolved to be more enjoyable and more luxurious than before. In previous years, it used to be more about a night-long party the day before the wedding which is more apt for a stag night in some sense.
