Hen weekends have come a long way from the days of learner plates, terrible sashes, and bottles of Babycham; nowadays you can do almost anything – sexy doesn’t have to be tacky!
Here’s a guide to give you ideas for planning a fantastic unique hen weekend.
Go Burlesque So you could go to a pole dancing class…. but come on, how clichéd is that? Instead why not try a burlesque fan dancing class? It’s less athletic than pole dancing, so will suit everyone in your bridal party, and isn’t restrictive no matter how curvy your ‘maids are – curves are positively encouraged here! Depending on how adventurous you’re feeling you can either wear comfy leggings and a loose top – or you could go all the way and slip into some sexy stockings and a corset; fans or other props are usually provided though. You never know, you might start a blossoming career as a burlesque performer.
Adrenaline Rush Blow away the cobwebs with an adrenaline fuelled activity weekend. Not one for the faint of heart, but perfect for the bridal party that can’t stand the idea of sitting in a bar or restaurant all day. There are many companies across the country and abroad that offer hen packages, and usually you can choose from activities such as shooting, horse riding, white water rafting, quad biking, and abseiling. There’s nothing that will test the bond of a bridal party more than holding each other’s ropes while you dangle off a cliff… after that, the big day will be a breeze!
Make Something Sexy Taking a class that teaches you to make something of your own is a fantastic hen experience, and gives everyone a special memento to take home at the end of the weekend. You could try anything from cupcake making to hat making… but this is a hen party after all! Get saucy and go for a lingerie-making workshop from The Stag and Hen Experience – where you get to spend a fun morning or afternoon creating your very own lingerie from sensuous materials such as lace and silk, and you get something sexy and yourself (and your man) at the end of the day, maybe even to wear on the wedding night!
Celeb Bingo Gone are the days of tacky fancy dress and pub golf, instead why not create a route of a few of the classiest bars around? This is a great option for a hen weekend as you can do it wherever you are, from London to Edinburgh and everywhere in between. Pick four to seven of the swankiest, chicest bars around and have their signature drink in each one – perhaps even ending with a VIP table booked at the best club in town – with the champers on ice of course. If you book in advance you should be able to get entry to some celebrity hotspots – so you can play celeb-spotting bingo while you’re there, of course with prizes for whoever spots the most famous celeb…
