More and more brides are opting for sophisticated and healthy hen weekends that will leave them feeling fresh. If bar crawls and downing shots aren’t your thing, try these healthy hen weekend ideas for a memorable last weekend of freedom with the girls. There’s not a whiff of tequila or a 3am taxi queue in sight…
Spa and pampering
What better way to prepare for a wedding than with a relaxing weekend of pampering? Book the girls in to a spa hotel for a luxurious few days of massages, fine dining and beautifying treatments. You’ll return home feeling revitalised, gorgeous and ready to tackle the last minute wedding preparations, something even the best of us struggle with after a hen weekend of wild partying. There’s other ways to feel pampered on your hen weekend too. If you’re renting out a cottage or a villa, hire a beauty therapist to come to you and combine wedding beauty prep such as spray tans, makeup practice runs and manicures with a girly hen night in.
A whirlwind adventure
Hen weekends signify the closing of one chapter of your life and opening another. Give your pre-married life the ultimate send off. Jet off to a place you’ve never been before and throw yourself into another culture. Never ridden a camel through the desert or stayed in a riad? Book a weekend break to Marrakech. Fancy taking a dip in a hot lake surrounded by volcanic scenery and snow capped mountains? Now’s your chance to discover the wonders of Reykjavik in Iceland. Traveling to faraway places is a truly memorable way to spend your hen weekend.
The last weekend of freedom takes on a whole new meaning when these adrenalin-fuelled activities are on the menu. Take to the waves with an awesome surfing weekend in one of the UK’s surfing hotspots like Newquay or have a Blue Crush moment and take your surfing ambitions to the sunshine abroad. Feel the freedom of riding a horse through the dramatic scenery of the Irish countryside or the golden vineyards of Valencia. If you want to try the wine, we won’t blame you.
