Hen dos with a touch of class
There are lots of directions you can turn in when you start planning a hen do. You might opt to go for an old-school big night out with all the bells and whistles, and maybe the odd stripper thrown in for good measure.
On the other hand, you may decide that the bride-to-be would prefer something a little different to celebrate her impending nuptials. The great news is, there are lots of options and whatever route you choose, there will be no shortage of hen party supplies for you to purchase.
A sophisticated touch
If you’re keen to whisk the hens off on a classy break, you might be interested in advice offered by hellomagazine.com. In a recent article, it suggested that hen weekends are the “perfect opportunity to take part in some original, fun and even cultural activities with your girlfriends”.
It added: “A celebration of the bride-to-be’s last moments as a single lady, the plans should reflect her personality as much as her wedding day.”
The arty approach
For example, it noted that for art lovers, a trip to Eastnor Pottery in Herefordshire or Kinsale Pottery in Cork could be ideal.
About this, the magazine stated: “Hen parties are invited to experience the pleasure of making clay and ceramic sculptures and work on group projects under tuition in a fun-filled environment. You can even get into some jewellery-making at Kinsale where the inclusive nature of expert instruction means everybody can join in. A guaranteed way to achieve amazing results and fabulous personalised souvenirs to remind you of a fun, girly day.”
Meanwhile, those who’d prefer sampling some sumptuous cuisine might prefer the Underground Cookery School in Borough market, London. Cooking parties begin with a canapé reception and this is followed by wine tasting and a “friendly introduction to gourmet cooking”.
It added: “As well as learning tricks of the trade in creating delicious sushi, canapés and cupcakes, there will be a chance to get competitive in cooking challenges.”
For a really indulgent hen do, a trip to Choccywoccydoodah in Brighton’s Bar du Chocolat may be spot on. Guests are served an “extravagant chocolate feast”.
Don’t forget the accessories!
