Stag and doe

A stag and doe party, also known as a hen and stag party, is the equivalent of a combined bachelor and bachelorette party.

In Canada, a stag and doe, or buck and doe, is a wedding tradition popular in Southern Ontario. [cite web |url=http://www.askoxford.com/worldofwords/wordfrom/party/?view=uk |title=Let's Party |accessdate=2007-05-09] The event is usually organized by the bridal party, but in some circumstances may also be held by the bride and groom before they are married, similar to a combined bachelor party and bachelorette party, or a 'Jack & Jill.' It acts as a fundraiser for the wedding. Guests purchase entrance tickets and are entertained by draws, food and drink, music and games.
