It’s traditionally held just before the wedding and is something of a rite of passage.

If you’re at that age when it seems like every friend, cousin and their hamster is getting hitched, I’m sure you’ll agree – boozed up, wild hen and stag dos are getting old very quickly. The penis straws are kitsch, the ass-exposed waiters are degrading, and the hangovers just aren’t worth it.

Luckily for you (and your liver), there are plenty of unique party ideas to celebrate your mate who’s about to get married. Workshops are an excellent way to have fun, get to know the rest of the bridal party, and pick up a new craft, all at the same time. What’s not to love about that?
