The wedding day you have planned and dreamed about for months on end is just around the corner. Finally, you have worked the Pinterest boards to the max. Your living room resembles something akin to the Cabinet War Rooms for all the military planning and organisation that has taken place. Take a look around and you may find your other half retreating to the garden shed with a pint of the good stuff.
Moreover, with weeks to go until the big day, you can be forgiven for waking up in the night in a cold, clammy sweat. Nevertheless, if you are fussing over the ‘finer detail’ of your day, then what? Just what could you POSSIBLY have forgotten amidst all your meticulous planning….!
Relax! Take a step back and breathe. This is the time for you to officially take ‘ten’. It is your moment to celebrate with your ‘hens’ and raise a glass to your forthcoming wedding. There are 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
The WTG team embrace all things vintage, therefore we believe 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. Vintage beauty salons will expertly transform you into a screen goddess with perfectly quaffed locks and sleek pin curls. To complete your pampering package, opt for a lesson in the ultimate vintage makeup. A talented make up artist will give you a translucent, dewy complexion, sexy cat eyes and lashing of bold lip colour. 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! 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. 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. If budget allows, 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. Alternatively, how about a fun Murder Mystery Weekend for a little bit of added intrigue and laughter?
Party with added ‘cheek’!
If you prefer the more traditional Hen Party, there are still some fun alternatives! 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! To continue the naughtiness, add in some fun, tongue in cheek games such as bra pong (beer pong with a twist!) or a game of ‘Dress The Bride’. Next, choose 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.

Sexy Dance Class
The brave bride to be could book her hens on an introductory burlesque class for a night of guaranteed giggles and laughter. These ‘naughty’ dance classes have ‘no nudity’ guaranteed and are a great confidence booster. The 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. Any inhibitions will be 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. A cocktail class is a great way to get your guests to relax and mingle. They are especially good if you have a variety of different age ranges attending. The classes are generally easy to book and you will find many local and trendy city centre bars offering such parties. You should always remember to book ahead as dates do tend to get booked up pretty quickly.
Activity Fun Day
Do you want to get involved in something more active? Have you considered booking an 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 go karting. 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!
