Planning a hen do


So I have become a bridesmaid for the first time for my beautiful cousin and have the pleasure of sharing with you what the four bridesmaids planned for the Hen Party.

PREP IS KEY
Preparation is key for any hen party so make sure you scrub up on your excel knowledge as lists are key. On the day, you need to be prepared so you are ready to help out and deal with any drama, that's why I got my nails and hair done in advance, I figured if I got a blow dry it should mean my hair will look immaculate on the Friday and for the Saturday I should have a slightly disheveled yet 'on trend' style. Thanks to the newly launched Rush in Twickenham I did, I went for loose curls with some scrumptious smelling products. A simple blow dry costs around £30 which I personally feel is a bargain as I didn't need to spend hours struggling with my mane.

After that I was ready to hop in an UBER and head to South Kensington to get decorating...

DECORATIONS & GIFT BAGS
All decorations were either brought from a Party Store or hand made like the bunting and Instagram frame. I also created gift bags for each Bridesmaid which included:
  • Bright pink willy straw
  • A mini bottle of wine (either white, rose or red) from Tesco
  • Willy whistle
  • Handmade dare card using Canva 
  • Lab2 blusher brush
  • Hologram glasses from Education Harbour
  • Press-on nails Fing'rs Prints in Girlie Glam
  • Party Popper




After getting all glam we headed out all dressed in black, except the bride who wore white of course, to Quaglino's which was an apt place with live music to set the right atmosphere and three courses and a cocktail all for £30 and with dishes like braised pork cheek, crispy ears, truffle mash and cider jus its too good too miss.

SATURDAY
After getting dressed up for the day and night (as we were not going to be heading back home) we cracked open the champers and headed to the first venue of the day Chestertons Polo in the Park to watch some polo and sip cocktails out of coconuts and pineapples from the tropical Mahiki bar.

After polo we headed down to Jak's King's Road for some wine and pizza's to share to get us fueled for a night on the town at Embargo's which is conveniently just above Jak's.

Now onto the wedding...
