Last Saturday was my hen ‘do’. Thanks to my marvellous MoH and all my lovely hens, I had the most wonderful time and you can read all about it by visiting www.awarwickshirewedding.com.
Now that I am an old hen, I feel well placed to dispense some hen ‘dos’ and hen ‘don’ts’ to anyone who is looking to organise a hen party. So, cluck, cluck, here goes . . .
Do . . .
- Consider adopting a ‘pick ‘n mix’ approach to your hen party which takes into account the different ages and interests of your ‘hens’. If appropriate, structure the celebrations so that your guests can choose to join in those parts that they would most enjoy. My hen party comprised: afternoon tea; a visit to the cinema; cocktails; a meal and a spontaneous trip to a local bar for a bit of dancing. Whilst a hardcore of hens stayed for the duration, the majority just came along for part of the celebrations and, judging from all the enthusiastic text messages I’ve received, that arrangement seemed to work well for everyone.
