Don’t forget to check out that hot guy across the cafe either! Bringing the hens to the public eye is one of the most sought after activities of the bride’s party. Having afternoon tea is a great excuse to give the bride to be that sophisticated day which oozes class and style.
It is also a fantastic way to change the pace of your hen party and day out as it gives the whole group time to relax for a bit before heading off to the next destination.
#4 - Destination Hen Party
Sadly, not many bridesmaids get to be part of something so amazing!
A destination hen party is just that, a destination. But while most hen party destinations include a ten mile trip to the nightclub, a real destination party crosses oceans and breaks barriers, and shatters the expectations of the bride and her girlfriends.
Some of the most popular places to have a destination hen party are as follows:
Branch out into the historical with a trip to London. London is a popular place among hen parties for their prestigious shops, drinks, and fun places found in peculiar locations.
Benidorm is the home of over 800 nightclubs! Your hen party will not have time to participate in everything you see at this fabulous destination.
Full of bicycles, art galleries, canals, and coffee shops, Amsterdam will get your destination party kicked off in the right fashion
#5 - Vintage Dress Party
While this may be the first you’re hearing about a vintage dress party, this type of party has been in style since the 1920’s.
Centered around fancy dress of an earlier time, women have a blast keeping it vintage and going out on the town. The only question is, which century will you choose for your hens to display?
The dapper 1920’s, the roller skating 50’s girl, or the swinging 70’s chick. Whatever dress you decide to choose, your party will definitely have a night to remember when you take your town back in time with your vintage fancy dress.
