Getting married is a great day in anyone’s life, as it is the time when you have decided to commit yourself to only one person for the rest of your life. There is a lot to prepare after that point like your big wedding day, the location of the meal and the church or registry office you want to get married in. Once your wedding day is over, people say the fun stops and so you have one last chance before you are a bride to have some fun with your friends. Your hen party is a once in a lifetime, never to be repeated experience and it is a great opportunity to have one last crazy day with your best friends.
Start Planning Now
Your wedding is probably two to three years away and is now in the planning stages, but for a hen party, most are organised about ninety days before it is to occur. This means that if you want to have your girls weekend, you need to start planning it soon and you need to make sure that there is accommodation booked so you and your gang have somewhere to stay. You may think that ninety days is lots of time to organise this, but the opposite is true. You and thousands of other soon to be brides are trying to organise their hen party at any given time and so you need to get in now before all the accommodation is booked.
There is lots to do and the following list will give you an idea of what lies ahead.
- Pick Your Date – All of your close friends have more than likely got a job to go to and so cannot just pick up and go somewhere with very little notice. You need to decide on a date together that suits everyone and gives enough time to talk to their respective bosses to get the day off and probably the next day also. Boyfriends need to be told that their partners will not be available that day and the day after. It is no good organising a hen night and then no one is available to attend.
- Try to Save Money – If you book in advance you may be able to get discounts. For example, if you decide to book a cottage that caters to celebrations such as this then if you give them enough notice and you book more than one night, then discounts may be available to your group. The same applies to transport as no one wants to have to drive when it is more than likely that alcohol will be consumed. Booking your transport well in advance should afford you some discounts and this is money that can be spent on the hen party.
Planning a hen party is not as easy as you may think it is. There is lots to do and it all costs money. If you plan in advance, then everyone can commit a little bit of money over time until the full amount is paid for.
