As a quintessentially British tradition, Hen parties embody the elegance, beauty, and grace every bride-to-be exudes. So what exactly does this bride-to-be need to be doing for this unforgettable weekend? Start off by looking the part. Hydrating facials, relaxing manicures, and the perfect blowout are the obvious, and extremely necessary, ways to perfectly pamper yourself, kicking off this memorable occasion.
Now, what else can you do? We’re thinking the perfect Afternoon Tea in London. Who wouldn’t love a truly scrumptious afternoon combining classic elements of a traditional tea party, with the spice and excitement of a Sex and the City twist? Make it fashion themed! Pastries and deserts inspired from none other than the most up and coming designers and trends. Picture it. Miniature Christian Lacroix and Dior biscuits, Burberry macaroons, elegant canapés, and every loose-leaf tea you could imagine. All of this over giggles and gossip sessions. It might just be me, but I can’t think of anything better!
In the words of Samantha Jones, “If you want the life, you have to look the part.” What better way to look the part than the perfect hat? Another undoubtedly English tradition, incorporating hats into anything, and everything celebratory. How about a glam, girlie, hat-making day? Visit Katherine Elizabeth Millinery for the best workshop designing your own creations with feathers, trimmings, and embellishments. Check out our last blog post on www.katherineelizabethhats.com for tips on how to pair the perfect hat with any colour of your choice. Not only is this the perfect activity, all your hens can wear their works of art to the big day!
Last and most certainly not least, the most relaxing part of all, makeup! Every woman loves to be treated, so why not gather all your hens and make a party out of it! Hiring a local makeup artist, whether it be to your hotel, home, or flat is the perfect way to both practice your bridal makeup and chat and drink champagne with your ladies! Instead of going to the salon alone, adding this into your hen weekend enhances the excitement, while still allowing the opinions of your closest friends to be heard.
Having a hen party is a once in a lifetime experience (usually), so why not make it as memorable as possible? Planning any of the above events is the perfect way to relax and spend time with your closest friends.
