Planning your wedding can be pretty stressful, but at least you can look forward to taking your mind off all the minutiae of church bookings and caterers when your hen party comes around! One thing is for certain however – you shouldn’t let your maid of honour get away with just slapping L-plates on your dress and dragging you around the local pubs. There are so many fantastic activities for hens that you can make your party almost as memorable as the wedding itself.
The capital is a great place to take your hen party – whether you’re local or not. There are so many things to see and do with your bridesmaids, you’ll be bound to make some wonderful memories.
You can start with shopping – London has some of the best shopping destinations around, after all – take in a musical (we recommend Mamma Mia! over Les Miserables for the hen party experience, otherwise you may come out feeling a little depressed) – or hit the city’s nightclubs.
You can also choose from some more unique activities. If you’ve ever considered yourself a bit artistic, and fancy something a little on the racy side, you could actually book a nude life drawing day – your party gets to spend the day in the company of an art teacher who’ll guide you on the finer points of drawing the hunky male model provided!
If you want something more active, you could throw yourself into a Bollywood dancing party courtesy of The Cheerleading Company, or even go paintballing – the choices are almost literally endless!
Of course, travelling through the city can be a bit of a drag, and the attractions and activities you want to include may not be that close together. By booking Swift Travel’s party bus in London, you can turn the travel into part of the party. It’s big enough for 16 people, and even has a bar, dancefloor and karaoke system on board!
Although it’s traditionally up to your maid of honour to sort out your hen party, there’s certainly nothing stopping you from making a few suggestions, so have a look around for interesting ideas you’d like and drop some hints – that way you can be assured of a hen party that will suit your tastes and interests, and which your entire bridal party can enjoy!
