     Hen Weekend

    You never know, it may be the last chance for a girls’ holiday so a weekend away to somewhere you have never been before may be just the thing. It doesn’t need to be anything too crazy, but a few days with some sun, sea and sand could be the perfect prep for a wedding. It’s the perfect excuse to get away. Everyone could work on their tan and get bronzed for the big day too. Of course there will be the obligatory glass of bubbly or cocktail to keep things going and all kind of exotic things to enjoy.

There could be butlers at your beck and call, champagne and cocktails on tap – and of course lots of music and dancing. Make sure you don’t get sea sick though. It is great for those of you who like the thought of one last hurrah before a wedding.

    Arty Experience

    Ok, so I am certainly not saying the obligatory nudity is a no no. What I am saying is celebrate all things naked at a life drawing party. With a glass of champagne in one hand and a pencil in the other you can create a saucy masterpiece. Great fun, lots of ogling and alcohol and you get to take home your work of art. What’s not to like?

    Hen Party Inspiration for Every Bride-to-Be

    A wedding is a wonderful thing; it lets two people go from partners to spouses, while also bringing together friends and family in a once in a lifetime day of festivities. While the wedding itself is obviously a huge celebration, the lead up to the big day is also very important. The hen night is no exception. Today we have some hen party inspiration for every bride-to-be. From long weekends away in sunny climes to an afternoon of vintage glamour. To a day of unrivalled adventure, hen parties are as unique as the bride herself. So, if you’ve been tasked with organising the hen party to end all hen parties, read on.

    The Party Animal

    One of the most popular ways to celebrate impending nuptials is by having a great big party! From nights out on the town, the humble hen party has grown considerably in the last few years. To weekends away in another city, perhaps even in another country.

    One trend that keeps getting more popular is going abroad for a weekend or longer to celebrate the upcoming wedding. There are lots of affordable holidays available to fun party destinations abroad. Booking flights for a break in a popular location is well within your reach. With its world-class DJs and fabulous weather, Benidorm is a great, inexpensive choice for the party-loving bride-to-be. Think wild nights spent sipping cocktails and dancing ‘til dawn, and sunny days spent nursing the inevitable hangover by the pool or beach-hopping.

    The Sophisticate

    The exact opposite of a traditional rowdy hen party.  The much more laid-back and luxurious spa weekend. The bride-to-be and her nearest and dearest can be treated to some of the best beauty treatments available.

    This is a great option for brides who don’t want to have a party and just want to relax and unwind ahead of the big day. With treats such as hot stone massages, facials and state-of-the-art hydrotherapy treatments. Spa breaks are available in almost every part of the country.There are plenty of great packages to choose from that suit all budgets.

    The Vintage Vixen

    If the bride-to-be is a fan of all things retro, then a vintage makeover day is a fantastic way to indulge her interests.

    Start with getting her hair and makeup done by a professional makeup artist and then host a vintage-themed afternoon tea. Hens can channel their inner starlet while drinking champagne from quirky china teacups. Nibbling on tiny sandwiches and lots of lovely cakes, including cupcakes and pretty pastel-hued macaroons. Watch glamorous films from the golden age of Hollywood and listen to the bride-to-be’s favourite old records to top off an unforgettable day.

    The Adventurer

    If partying, travelling, relaxing and dressing up for the day doesn’t appeal, then look for inspiration in nature. Increasing numbers of hen and stag parties are opting to head into the country for a few days of adventure, extreme sports and a pure adrenaline rush.

    If kayaking, hiking, cliff-jumping and rock climbing are more up the bride’s street, then book a cottage in the wilderness for a few days and see what sports and other adventures you can get up to.

    There are lots of inventive ways to have a hen do, so be sure to ask your bride what she’d like and see what your budget can stretch to. You never know, you could just arrange a hen party that the bride and the bridesmaids will never, ever forget.
