Hi Ladies, hope you can help. Did you let your moh/bridesmaid plan your hen do or did you have some say it? What did you do? We have a range of people from 18-80 (nans etc) to think of and we are struggling to find something for everyone.

my moh is planning mine and i know she is having a nightmare because there is always that one person who will either complain and say its not their thing or its too expensive, so goodluck ,

My MOH is planning mine though I've had some say in it. We are going cocktail making in Chester followed by a night out. To include my grandmothers (one who has Alzheimer's) and my cousin who isn't old enough to drink (16 year old bridesmaid) I'm also having a bridal shower at my house which will be afternoon tea (a few drinks for those drinking) and some fun and games. I just thought it would be easier to do two to include everyone.

My friend's daughter had a dinner with us all in London and then she and the other younger ones went off to a night club and we oldies went off home (although we were welcome we didn't fancy the ice bar!) If you wanted something more weekendish you could do a spa weekend and then the oldies could fade out when they wanted.

My MOH (to be) asked me not knowing that I’ll be asking her to be my MOH at Christmas. At least she’ll know what I would like. I want a range of different things to suit everyone. Me and my H2B will be having 2 so the first will be the “wild” one and the 2nd will be a lovely meal out with all the grandparents.

MOH is planning mine, no input whatsoever from me! One less thing to stress about. At the end of the day, you can’t please everyone 🖤

My MOH will be planning mine.I have known her all my life so I am not worried. I have said I would like 2 though. One that all the family, young and old, can be involved in and another that will be the wild send off with my friends. I have explained what I would like and will now leave with her to organise with the help of my bridesmaids

It could be something as simple but universally liked as a trip to an animal sanctuary or cream tea with champagne at the beach or a restaurant :) I'm having some say in mine as it would be hectic if I let my 17 year old maid of honour plan it all haha! x

We had a joint hen/stag do - we booked the house we all stayed in for the weekend, and rallied everyone together to work out numbers and a date, but the actual specific plans were organised by our friends :)

I'm leaving my moh to sort mine but I made a list of ideas that I would like if possible and told her due to people living away I'd prefer a weekend with different events so that hopefully everyone has at least a chance of spending some time with me. This includes an exciting event of some kind as well as an afternoon tea and a morning of girly pamper for the younger girls that won't be able to join in the drinks

I organised my cousins as her MOH and because of the age range I just booked a meal for everyone and those who wanted to go out afterwards could easily do so

My maid of honour is planning mine but with my input. We are going to do an afternoon tea and escape room in the afternoon then go out for dinner and drinks in the evening. We have allowed people to pick and chose what they would like to attended, so my MIL is only going to come to the afternoon stuff, some of my friends are only going to attend the evening celebration and some are coming to the entire thing. We thought this would be nice to do as everyone can be involved but within a budget that suits them.
