In our welcome to the ultimate wedding guide, we outlined the fact that a bride cannot have the perfect wedding without that outstanding bachelorette party. This is usually the task of the maid of honour and it can be a nightmare to organise.
Here we aim to provide you or your bridesmaids with a comprehensive set of suggestions that can make that an unforgettable night.
A hen party, as they are dubbed in the UK is usually a full day of activities. Something more relaxed in the day with a little insanity at night. There are many styles and themes to choose from making it hard to pick that perfect party.
However, let us start with the basics.
Whether it is a trip away from home, a party in town, or a relaxed day at the spa, this needs to be thought through and planned to perfection. Some girls like that last night to be wet and wild similar to what is seen in the movies. Others prefer a gentler relaxed day and night, something that they will actually remember the next day.
Whichever you decide, consider the bride’s preferences. After all, it is her party!
The activities are what make or break a hen party and for the most part, the ‘traditional’ bachelorette involves a little bit of excessive drinking. This usually occurs in the evening and is an opportunity for the bride to let down her hair one last time. Common ideas usually revolve around some of the more usual night shenanigans such as comedy clubs, strip shows, and a couple of nightclubs all to add a dimension of party craziness. The day can be filled with quintessential girly activities such as spas, a brunch, or simply afternoon tea. Remember that quite often these events are also a bonding and catching up session with the girls so make sure there is some room in there for that too.
Here are some final suggestions to keep the party on track.
