Counting down to your hen party? Exciting! Have the best time ever by making sure you pack these four essentials...
Brides only get one hen do. So, you’ll want to have the best time possible surrounded by your loved ones.
By now you probably know where you’re going and have invited all of the most important people, but have you considered what everyone needs to take with them? Whether you’ve decided that the you would prefer a city break in the UK, or a short stay abroad, there are a few things you should pack to ensure you and everyone else has the best time possible. Here are our suggestions.
Your own drinks
If you have a lengthy journey ahead of your or are going to be spending time in hotel rooms, take along your own bottles of wine. Not only will this allow you to turn every moment into a party, but it will also prevent you from having to pay the unfairly high prices that the likes of refreshment trolley and minibars often charge.
You can make every member of your hen party feel extra special by surprising them all with personalised t-shirts when you get to your destination. Of course, you could make these yourself but, as you probably have a lot on your plate at it is, it might be worth hiring a company to help. Custom Planet, for example, has a large selection of t-shirts for women that you can have printed with nicknames or a slogan of your choice. They can even handle a quick turnaround if you’ve left this treat until the last minute.
If you’re visiting a different country or city, you’ll want to do plenty of exploring during the day. Then, at night, you should be free to dance the night away, surrounded by your nearest and dearest.
While it’s perfectly understandable that you’ll want to pack your best pair of high heels, it’s best to have a comfortable pair of flats on stand-by. That way, if your feet start to hurt, you can switch from one pair of shoes to the other with minimal fuss, and continue your celebrations.
Or, if you typically prioritise style over comfort, you can pick up some Party Feet Invisible Gel Cushions from Boots. These will help to make your high heels much more comfortable.
Hen dos are unusual events, as they usually involve inviting all of your closest female friends and family. As this can mean gathering people from multiple social circles, it’s likely that some of the attendees will have never met. Fortunately, there’s a whole host of hen do games available to help you break the ice.
