My mum and friends have just started planning mine I'm getting married in 3 months, I'm not big on nights out and two of my best friends are pregnant so they've had to take that into consideration. But it's a full day, starting with breakfast at my favourite place, an activity we can all join in with (bowling, lazer quest ect) a pamper session then we're having a night out on a boat. For me it's the most perfect plan they could've come up with. I've had friends that have had weekends abroad, spa days, chocolate making class with sexy waiters, ann summers parties and even a girls night in playing board games, it all depends on your interests.

Lucky you!
Don't feel you have to do anything too extravagant. Just do whatever makes you happy. Not everyone has a hen party.I get married in 3 months and not even thought about it yet. x

Aww that's amazing that you've won your wedding. My current idea is an afternoon tea with the kids (both 15) and my mum who doesn't drink. Then with everyone else I quite fancy a murder mystery night with dinner as drinks x

I'd love to do a panic room with both the women and men or if not a nice meal and perhaps karaoke. However i might do an afternoon tea for the girls and then a meal for both male and female

My hen do is next month in Bath. We're having a champagne afternoon tea, going to a garter making craft session (wine involved of course) and then a thermal spa date the following day. We're staying overnight in a hotel, that way if people don't fancy a night out they can head back to their room :) with all activities and accommodation it's cost £200pp without spending. Might help to have an idea of cost :)

3 nights in the country, local town, we went laser tag and water rafting! Stayed in a beautiful cottage 5 bedrooms, hot tub, sauna, grill hut, meal out one night. Come to £250 for accommodation, activities, breakfast and food for the house, and 120 off the food bill when we went out for a lovely meal! All planned by my wonderful MOH! The best weekend I've ever had with my friends and very close to the best weekend of my adult life! Plan, budget, shop around, do something you'll remember. We booked accommodation 12 months in advance. Hen do was 5 weeks before. We married last month :D all the best! Have a fab time! Xxx
