It's all about the Hens!

This is just between us and your closest friends !.......

You’ve done it! Your wedding day planning is more or less complete and you have managed all the arrangements brilliantly (don’t worry about those few ‘..zilla’ moments that you had, those who love you will forgive you- they know how important your wedding day is to you!)  

Now all your girls (your family and friends) are posing questions about the hen party-“When will it be – I need to plan child care?” “Where will you have it?” “Have you got a theme?” “How many are coming?”

One idea for you to consider for your Hen do, that can suit everyone that you want to invite is a Spa Hen Party! Firstly though, you need to decide what type of Spa Hen Party that you- the MIB (Most Important Bride) feel will best suit you and your hens?

For example, would you prefer a relaxing overnight spa break in a hotel with great treatment choices and cocktails and dinner – or a spa day at a specialised destination or salon and added fun activities!

 Once you’ve made up your mind –ask yourself another question, “Shall I take on organising my own Hen Party –or ‘delegate’ this to my MOH (Maid of Honour) or a family member or a couple of my besties?”

 If you decide upon the delegation route where you take no part in the planning, make sure that your OT (Organising Team) have some idea of your preferences such as: suitable dates, who you want to invite (bear in mind that a number of your friends or family won’t know each other – so the OT will need to get all contact details from you), what you want to do, what’s your preferred location – and importantly a rough idea of cost per head. Organising a group event is so much easier when you have a ‘plan’!


Hen Party Spa Break

On an overnight or weekend Hen spa party you can spend time with your hens at a luxury spa hotel, relaxing in tranquil, aroma scented spa environments and thoroughly enjoy being pampered by professionally trained therapists!

Take a gentle swim in a warm blue pool, lie back in a bubbling spa bath, and benefit from indulgent beauty treatments such as soothing body massages, prescriptive facials and gorgeous manicures.

Perhaps you can enjoy some time in a relaxation area on comfortable beds, with soft lights and refreshments – and afterwards tuck into a delightful afternoon tea

Later on you and your group can enjoy getting ready for  a fun filled evening where you can catch up with friends over a  few cocktails , enjoy a delicious dinner (perhaps accompanied by a nice wine or a couple of bottles of fizz) –and discuss your how you all know each other, and your plans for your forthcoming big day!

If you want to enjoy a little bit of nightlife, you might head to the nearest town or city to  ‘check out  a nightclub or two, and for those of your party who are adverse then they might just relax and chat in the hotel lounge (with a nightcap) or get a good night’s sleep  in a comfortable bed
