All Eyes on the Bride - Hens Party Ideas


2027.jpg

There is a time during the wedding planning that a Bride is given pause to hesitate. Not the wedding, no, she can’t wait for that. The party before the wedding, the Hen’s Party. Whilst exciting, it is tinged with a little bit of sadness as you and your friends acknowledge that now there is another part to your life which will subsequently result in babies and all the other things that come with being a married couple. Some of your friends may still be looking for their Mr Right. My own Hen’s party was a riot. We had a lovely dinner followed by a performance by a very cheeky magician who bore a striking resemblance to Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire. He made some very naughty balloons (my mum and future mother-in-law were at the table!).

After dessert the games began. Raunchy chocolates were handed out along with rolls of toilet paper and pens. On this we had to write as many rude words and slang we knew for certain “things”. Turns out my mother-in-law knew the most out of all of us and Teresa, yes I have all your answers still! That was an eye opener. From there I was given a book of tasks which included things like standing on the chair in the middle of the restaurant and announcing I was getting married in a week. I think the flashing fluffy tiara, handcuffs and glitter BRIDE TO BE sash and matching garter gave it away. The other diners did not seem too caught off guard by it. Armed with my rude balloon, Hen’s attire and my task book I set about completing the games.

The end of the night I sat with the girls in a quiet booth. Some of us a little worse for wear – including mine and my hubby’s mum who were snuggled against each other, sipping their cocktails and reminiscing about their two oldest children who were going to be wed in a week’s time. As I played with the umbrella on my drink, their conversation moved on to what our children would look like “oh they will have beautiful babies! We are going to be such lucky Grandma’s!” Then the tears started and that was it, time to go to Krispy Kreme and then head home. It was a fun night with silly games, dancing, good food and great company. I realised when I was listening to my mum talk to my mother-in-law that this was it. The little girl I had seen myself as was slipping away. I would have a husband. I didn’t want my parents to think that this would be the end, that I would not need them. Oh my goodness, they were not palming me off that easily! It was bittersweet as I looked around at all the single ladies bopping away on the dance floor. For some reason I felt odd. Like that was a part of me that I was now leaving behind and I was strangely okay with that. I woke the next morning and that week leading to our wedding was a blur!

So, along with your wedding your Hen’s party is just as important. It is the start of the wedding and as such needs to be as unique and individual as the wedding. So you have to make it special. Reserved for the Bridesmaids to organise, the bride can feel a little bit nervous (I did – I was about to go out wearing everything flashing and sparkling, what if I triggered an epileptic fit in someone?). I am sure it would be perfectly okay for the bridesmaid to ask the bride for some input, but keep it mostly a surprise. If your bride is a glitter, glam girl then you might want to consider a City Chic theme, decorate with clear diamond acrylic scatters, have a LOVE plates set, Martini and Dizzy Heels dangler decorations, mini Martini glasses, Martini and Heels Glitter Table Centrepieces, a personalised guest book platter and when consuming alcohol, have a stash of personalised water bottles on hand to pass out to the girls. For party favours go for the gourmet chocolate bars and Bride and Groom tissues (these will help when the tears start – and there will be tears!) and Love Notes, personalised journal and pen. Grab a Bridal Shower party games kit to get the party started.

Now the other morning (2am to be precise – my two and a half year old son broke his collar bone so sleep has been a bit of a hit and miss at the moment) I was flicking through some magazines and I thought what would Jennifer Anniston’s Hen’s Party be like? She loves the beach, worships the sun and margaritas. This would be an easy one. The party would obviously be on a secluded beach in Cabo. Carnival solar festive lanterns would be strung up around the beach, where there would be a bonfire, sun chairs, wooden dance floor and a bar which would serve Key Lime Margaritas as the sun set. Frangipani’s would be scattered around. Canapes would be served with the Starfish printed napkins and all her girls would receive an eco-folding multi-use tote bag filled with goodies including chocolate and personalised SPF15+ sunscreen for them to use on the wedding day.

My day dreaming was short lived, but I think Jennifer would probably like what I concocted. All of the products (decorations and favours) I have mentioned are found on the Pink Frosting website in the Hens Party Decorations department.  So if you are organising a Hen’s night have a look – Pink Frosting can help make your Hen’s Party amazing and we all know a Happy Bride = Happy Bridesmaids!
