Where, What, How?
Where are you going to go, what accommodation will you chose, how are you going to get there?
Hopefully, by now, your bride to be and the other hens have set a date and a budget and you’ve hopefully established whether you’re going to be the outdoor hen party, the city hen party or the relaxed hen party.
If you want a night out on the town, then a city is going to be your first choice, but what if your have a varied group, you may have Mothers of the bride / groom in attendance, pregnant ladies, tired mums as well as the Bridget Jones’s of the world and you need to cater to them all. Maybe a city center hotel / apartment with a spa for those that don’t want to be on their feet all day and want to bow out of the party after dessert and before you start on the after dinner cocktails?
A large holiday house may provide all the flexibility you need, leave those who want to relax with a good book in the hot tub whilst the adventurous of your party head out for some horse riding or clay pigeon shooting.
How are you going to get there? If some of your party members don’t drive then a city center location easily reached by train is a great choice.
Unless…… you make the journey part of the experience.
You could get the Edinburgh sleeper train from London to Scotland, think Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City but with better carriages! Or instead of taxis to your location how about a seaplane to pick you up from Glasgow and land you on the waters of Loch Lomond – that’s an impressive entrance!
Or make even a simple train journey special, before your board your train take a pit stop into M&S food and buy some smoked salmon sandwiches, cup cakes and mini bottles of champagne or Prosecco to make your journey a little bit more 5 star.
Relax, you’re almost there, the perfect hen weekend is in the making and you are on your way to winning Maid of Honor of the Year Award!
