Conspiring actors, a classic among stag do pranks

Above all: record everything so that your friend always has this unforgettable and funny memory.
You can also hire a fake waiter who needs to be excessively friendly and ask the groom uncomfortable questions about his personal life and his relationship with the bride.

At the end of the night, reveal that the waiter was actually an actor and that everything was part of the prank.

The fake kidnapping
