The secret to the perfect hen do is making sure the bride gets exactly what she wants. If she wants to stay low key, then going to Vegas is probably not going to be her idea of perfect. And if you think that Ibiza is the best way to “PARTY HARD” when all the bride really wants is a relaxing spa weekend before all the wedding madness begins, you’ve probably just organised her idea of wedding hell.
But it isn’t too hard to plan the best hen do she could have asked for. Here are our top tips to make sure you get it right.
Find out what the bride wants
The hen do needs to be as stress free as possible for everyone involved, so start by asking the bride what it is she wants and expects from the day or weekend, then take the planning side off her hands. She’ll most likely be preoccupied with organising the actual wedding anyway, and will be more than happy to hand over the hen party reigns to her trusted wing women.
If you’re helping with this task then you’re likely to be one of the bridesmaids, so remember that the perfect hen do also means making sure the bride doesn’t look anything less than stunning when she comes to walk down the aisle. That means in one piece, with no broken bones and no horrendous tan lines.
