Of all the celebrations surrounding a wedding, perhaps the most fun and stress free is the hen night. It is no longer just a night of debauchery, the hen night is a time for bonding with friends and honoring the next phase of your life. Whether you choose a weekend getaway abroad or your local, with the right location you can create the event of a lifetime.
Nothing builds the excitement like the anticipation of a girls getaway. Weekend long events allow guests an opportunity for extra bonding and a chance to combine daytime and night time activities. You should consider that longer events are more expensive and sometimes a weekend away does not always work to every ones schedules. Spa days, wine tasting, gourmet cuisine, and fun activities such as belly dancing to snowshoeing are sure to please, however don’t forget to schedule some alone time so guests can catch their breath!
Here are two of my favorites:
The Berkeley Girls Night In
Priced at £425 based on two people
The ultimate pajama party, Girls Night In offers the most luxurious, extravagant night in a girl could possibly wish for.
The package includes in-room manicure, cocktails from The Blue Bar, Goody Bag, Skinny Cow Ice Cream, diptyque candles, CD’s, DVDs and access to the spa and roof-top pool.
Haunted Hen Nights: Arreton Manor
Dating back to the 9th Century, the beautiful Arreton Manor is an incredible place to stay. It’s Ghostly visitors include a little child in a blue dress, chanting monks and a woman in red. What ever you do on your hen night, remember to keep it safe and the have a great time. And don’t forget the digital camera….or may be one should ban them for one night.
