So your wedding day is looming nearer and nearer, which means it’s time to celebrate with those important ladies in your life! What shenanigans will you get up to at your Hen Party?
When choosing your activities, it’s worth bearing in mind the type of people in your hen party and whether the activities will be suitable for everyone, you don’t want someone having to sit out by themselves for a few hours while the rest of you bungee jump off a bridge! If any of your friends are pregnant, bear this in mind and don’t book a cocktail making class if you know several of them won’t be able to drink the cocktails they’re making! Also bear in mind that not everyone has the cash to splash, so don’t price people out of attending if many of them will struggle to pay for it.
If you’re an adrenaline junkie, why not book an action packed weekend with the girls? Cornwall and Devon have some spectacular beaches and surf schools, so why not hit the waves and learn to surf? Dance classes are always fun in a group and there’s so many options, pole, belly, salsa, etc. You can even book onto a circus skills course and learn the art of trapeze, acrobatics or simply get the hang of juggling! If you’re going further afield on your hen weekend, many European countries offer bobsleigh lessons, or you could stick to a few hours on the slopes on skis or a snowboard.
If all this sounds like too much effort, why not go for a pampering weekend instead and book your group of ladies into a spa for the weekend? Or if that all sounds expensive, you can recreate your own spa in a holiday cottage or even your own living room by either making or buying face masks, nail polish and other beauty treatments that can be done in the comfort of your own space! It doesn’t have to cost the earth and can be even more fun doing a pamper evening at home.
The most popular option for many is still dinner and drinks, with the option to move onto a club and dance the night away. This, too, can be an inexpensive option that appeals to many. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it’s a celebration to remember with your favourite ladies, celebrating your upcoming nuptials!
