    Really torn between what to for hen weekend.

    I'm going to do a spa day and afternoon tea for mums and grandmas etc.

    But for the main one I'll have around 15 people. Now 3 of these have babies and due to my fertility treatment I may be pregnant or have a very young baby. So I've thought about hiring a large house. I live in kent and have found 2 places in Essex but we'd be split between 2 houses, next to each other. I don't know if this would be an issue. However it works out at less than £60 for two nights or just under £90 for three nights.

    My moh wants to get a butler in the buff and all that jazz LOL, but I'd be happy with organising cocktail class etc. What are yours opinions ladies? Xx

    If you might be pregnant or still nursing around that time I'd rethink the cocktail class - those are much more fun when you get to 'sample' your creation(s). A chocolate making class perhaps if you don't want to go with the butler idea?
    I think its absolutely fine if you're split between two houses. You'll all be spending the day together and then spme people will have just a little further to walk to go to bed. It's not far for them to walk and I really don't think anyone will mind.

    I like the idea of having two hours and having 15 people (and women) in one house would be a nightmare when trying to use the bathroom in the morning.

    Why not still make cocktails but make mocktails instead?
    Mini spa day?
    Karaoke?

    Butlers in the buff are good fun.

    Good luck with the planning x

    I don't drink anyway, I only ever have non alcoholic drinks, but get my amusement from watching my friends get drunk.

    Mini spa day is a good idea. Could enquire about that.

    True about the bathrooms, two would be better. 10 in one then 5 in the other.

    Thanks ladies xx
