- Wedding: April 2014
My bridesmaids are planning my hen’s night; I have no idea what’s going on and won’t find out until the day, but my Maid Of Honour has said that any ladies invited to the wedding are also welcome to take part if they are in town at the right time (destination wedding, hen’s night will be a few days before in the same city) and want to join in. Sounds great to me!
I will be sending our invitations out soon and just had a thought. Do you think I could include a small separate card with relevant invitations, that say something like “ksus07’s Hen’s Night – If you are in town on [date] and feel like having a bit of fun with the bride, please contact Lulu, the Maid of Honour, on [phone number, email, Facebook] for more information. We hope you can join in!”
When I say “relevant” invitations, I’m referring mostly to my/his female friends and relatives – I think for any guests that are being invited as a couple/family, it might be weird to include details for the hen’s night, but not the buck’s night (I have no idea what’s happening for that either), so we would have to get in touch with these ladies another way.
I just thought doing this might be an easier way to get the information out all in one go but had never heard of it being done before. (Also, not everyone is on Facebook, and I don’t have everyone’s phone number, but I do have everyone’s postal address.)
What do you think? Have you done this? Any suggestions for other ways to spread the word without creating more work for my bridesmaids/myself?
Looking forward to your responses.
