Hen Party Guest List: How Many is Too Many?

Hen Party Guest List: How Many is Too Many?

Now ladies when sorting your Hen Party Guest List: how many is too many?? This is a question we all ask ourselves throughout the whole hen party planning. Do you invite your friends with the in laws? Is it ridiculous if you invite your hairdresser? Should I invite a friend I don’t talk to anymore just because I went to hers 5 years ago? Don’t drive yourself hen do crazy!

Remember it’s your celebration and you can invite as many or as little as you please. We just want to give you some pros and cons of each to help you reconsider the distant friends or your hairdresser you may be inviting.

If you are just planning on going for drinks at a bar or cocktail making and a nice meal, then technically you can invite as many as you want with no hassles. By booking in advance you’ll have no issue getting a table reservation for your favourite restaurant. If you don’t mind splashing out for your last weekend of freedom you could hire a hen house giving you plenty of room for all the guests you could want. Also with having a house you can then get a mobile hen party package so you can celebrate your hen party all under one roof.

Although remember that the more people you invite the harder it is to please everyone. So if you’re worried about numbers you could have a smaller weekend away with your friends or just your relatives and then a night out with everyone or vice versa whatever suits you.

If your leaning more towards a smaller hen party but worried about people who may expect an invite don’t worry. If they’re invited to your big day I’m sure anyone who isn’t one of your bridesmaids isn’t really expecting an invite. Smaller hen parties are more ideal if you’re needing to book hotels and with smaller groups there is less of a chance of people splitting off from each other.

Just remember that this night out or weekend your having for your hen party isn’t about anybody else all it is about is celebrating you and your last days of freedom before your big day. If you’re still unsure on what to do for your hen party have a look at our hen party activities.  Hen Party Guest List: how many is too many?? We hope this has helped you hens decide on who is on the guest list.

Autumn Wedding Planning

Autumn Wedding Planning

Summers come and gone and now it’s time to snuggle up on the couch with a cup of tea, turn the heating up and dig out our scarfs and hats. Although some are not a fan, others enjoy the cosy setting for their fairy-tale wedding. If you yourself are an autumn bride to be then give this autumn wedding planning article to give you a little helping hand before the big day arrives.

When it comes to autumn, colour is probably one of the best decorating tips out there. We’re talking reds, oranges, browns and yellows. At first, they don’t sound like the most popular colours to choose but when put together properly, they can look beautiful. If you add some metallic bronze, gold and some silver you’ll have yourself the perfect colour scheme already. Decor depends on the month you’re in, if its September, keep the decor cool and chic before digging out the pumpkins and fireworks during October and November. There are so many DIY decs you can make yourself or get your hand on online that can add the perfect touch.

Due to it being Autumn it can of course get a little chilly when walking to and from the church/ceremony etc. So, why not provide some blankets, brollies, shrugs and even wellies depending on the weather to make your guests feel a little more comfortable? When it comes to food and drink, there are plenty of choices out there. Why not consider, autumn themed cocktails, mulled wine and hot chocolate for the younger guests. Autumn is all about being cosy so when picking your food be sure to pick some home comfort favourites, they’ll go down a treat.

These are only a few quick tips and tricks to autumn wedding planning. If you have any more questions or looking to book a cocktail masterclass, then give our team a ring on 0161 341 0052 today. Happy henning ladies!
