The day you have planned for and dreamed about for months on end is just around the corner. Finally, the Pinterest boards have been worked to the max and your living room resembles something akin to the Cabinet War Rooms for all the military planning and organisation that has taken place within. Take a look around and you may find your other half retreating to the garden shed with a pint of the good stuff as respite from the ensuing wedding ‘storm’.
Moreover, with mere weeks to go until the big day, you can certainly be forgiven for waking up in the dead of night in a cold, clammy sweat. However, if you are fussing over the ‘finer detail’ of your special moment, then what? Just what could you POSSIBLY have forgotten amidst all your meticulous planning….Arrgghh!
Relax! Take a step back and breathe. Now is the time for you to officially take ‘ten’. It is time to celebrate with your ‘hens’ and raise a glass to your forthcoming wedding. With so many ways to celebrate in style, you are undoubtedly spoilt for choice when organising your Hen Party celebrations. Here are some of WTG’s favourites. Does your Hen Party choice feature?
Vintage Pamper Salon
Embracing our love for all things vintage, a vintage pamper day is an interesting twist on a trusted classic. The modern bride can now be transformed into a 1920’s Hollywood vixen with the help of a gorgeous vintage hair do. Think perfectly quaffed locks and sleek and shiny pin curls. Complete your pampering package with a lesson in the ultimate vintage makeup. Translucent, dewy complexions, sexy cat eyes and lashing of bold lip colour are just the ticket. Why not throw in a vintage Afternoon Tea with celebratory Prosecco? In this way, you and your hens can truly kick back, relax and celebrate whilst the pampering ensues! Be sure to follow your pampering with a night on the tiles to show off all your hard work!
Hen Weekend Away in the Sun
An extremely popular choice now with brides to be, the chance to grab a fun weekend in the sun with your besties. If this option is on the cards, brides to be need to consider that this might not be an affordable option for everyone in your bridal party. Booking well in advance of the date can go some way to cater for this. Allow people to budget and save for the trip; whilst giving the gals something to look forward to and anticipate into the bargain. Be sure to book something memorable for the trip – an exclusive party boat as the sun sets over the bay or private members’ booth in a nightclub can add something a little special to your trip.
If a weekend abroad is out of the question, there are some fab options for weekends away at home too. A stately country house hotel with bookable spa facilities can prove to be the perfect treat. Or how about a fun Murder Mystery Weekend for a little bit of added intrigue and laughter?
Party with added ‘cheek’!
You may prefer the more traditional Hen Party, and why not! For the fun bride-to-be, how about adding a cheeky twist with some Butlers in the Buff? A fun party with a cheeky twist can often be all that’s needed to transform your celebrations from sedate to intriguing! For instance, picture your friends’ faces when they arrive to be greeted by a tasty cocktail from a handsome Adonis! Continue the naughtiness with some fun, tongue in cheek games such as bra pong (beer pong with a twist!) or a game of ‘Dress The Bride’. Next, add in some cheeky light up words for the dance floor at the same time to continue the fun. How about ’DANCE DIVAS’ or ‘BRIDE TRIBE’ for the ultimate photo memento backdrop for your special night. Alternatively, for further possible word inspiration please click here
Sexy Dance Class
Why not book your hens on an introductory burlesque class or pole dancing session for a night of guaranteed giggles and laughter? With ‘no nudity’ guaranteed, these ‘naughty’ dance classes are a great confidence booster. The dance classes can be easily adapted to suit any age or dexterity; ensuring inclusivity for all. We promise an abundance of feather boas and oodles of free flowing cocktails will result in any inhibitions being lost before you can utter the immortal words ‘Pornstar Martini’……
Cocktail Masterclass Party
A cocktail masterclass party is a really fun way to start your night. It is a great way to get your guests to relax and mingle, especially if you have a variety of different age ranges attending. Easy to book, you will find many local and trendy city centre bars offering such classes. You should always remember to book ahead as dates do tend to get booked up pretty quickly.
Activity Fun Day
For the more active among you, how about a Activity Day. There are a great range of team activities to choose from that can be a good old belly laugh for you and your hens. For example, a few options to consider are zorbing, paintballing, or alternatively, go karting or canoeing. However, make sure to arrange something for later on in the evening, because all girls want the opportunity to get their glad rags on and glam up for the occasion!
