Groom has virtual stag do which has him drinking out of a dog bowl

A groom-to-be who was supposed to have his wedding in May had to have a virtual stag after the UK went into lockdown. Dan Marshall, 33, from Worcester, celebrated his upcoming nuptials over Zoom with his friends, who made it as wild as it could be. Dan was due to marry fiancée, Sam Kitching, 33, a primary school teacher, in a civil ceremony at Pebworth but the wedding has been postponed until late October. To cheer him up, Dan’s friends got creative and organised a virtual celebration.


Just because they were socially distancing didn’t mean they skipped the stag do behaviour. Dan had to dress up for the night and drink for every ten likes that stags got on their Facebook profile picture (of Dan). Other heady tasks included drinking out of a dog bowl and doing lots of press ups. Just usual lad behaviour. Dan loved (almost) every minute of it.


The account manager said: ‘The lads decided to throw me a virtual stag do after the real one had to be cancelled. ‘It was so much fun, and definitely a night to remember.
