New on English Wedding – hen and stag weekend ideas

Morning lovely people! Now, has anyone been eagle-eyed enough to spot the new feature in the menu bar up at the top there? I added a new page to English Wedding blog at the weekend – ideas for hen and stag weekends.

The pre-wedding adventure which, in our parents’ days, was one ale too many in the local pub / a bottle of wine with the girls at home, has turned into an extravaganza.

Hen and stag weekends – a modern adventure!

While a part of me longs to hear about a new love of vintage hen nights and stag dos to go with the thrifty, handmade wedding trend, I’m fascinated by all the options there are for hens and stags to let their hair down, dress up, dance, fight, scare themselves silly and even paint each other.

    I didn’t have a hen weekend – I’m more of a stay-at-home-body! My husband is off on a stag weekend soon though as his brother is getting married in July. I think they’re doing extreme sports stuff – not sure if this is a good idea with hangovers from the previous nights’ drinking!
