If you’re getting married soon you’re probably already dreaming of your big white dress, your extravagant cake and, of course, your last night as a single woman on your hen night!
But what if a night on the tiles just simply isn’t for you?
We have selected the best five alternative hen party ideas, for you to say goodbye to life as a singleton in style – and without the L plates, tutus and cheap cocktails!
A Spa Day
There is little more enjoyable than a day at the spa with your girlfriends – and what better way to prepare yourself your big day? Book a day at your local spa and enjoy a day of relaxation, face masks, massages and, of course, champagne and have a hen party to remember.
A Tea Party
Tea has long been the favourite drink of Great Britain, so why not sit down and enjoy a cup? Luxury loose teas are great for both cooking with, as well as offering much more dimensional undertones in your cuppa.
Now summer has arrived set up your garden for a traditional tea party. Find (or make) bunting, hang fairy lights in the trees and create a grand table offering high tea, with crust-less cucumber sandwiches, plates piled high with sweet goods and most importantly the tea itself!
Long gone are the days when paintballing was reserved as a “man’s sport”. If you want to do something different that will have you laughing so much your sides hurt, then paintballing is a great choice.
Whether you opt for an indoor or outdoor centre, and regardless of the weather, it is bound to be an experience none of your friends forget for many years to come – and a great way to really bond and spend time with your best girls before you step on into married life.
A Weekend Away
Whilst going away to somewhere exotic for weekend might be a little much to ask your loved ones to commit to, a weekend away much closer to home is perfect. Whether you love the great outdoors, shopping till you drop or a weekend of theatre and opera – the UK offers a great range of weekend trips to help make your hen weekend perfect.
A Meal in a Top Restaurant
There are very few times in your life when it is acceptable to spend more than your monthly food budget on one meal – but it is something we should all do once. Michelin star restaurants are located up and down the UK and don’t all cost the earth – look out for deals online and enjoy the meal of a lifetime.
