I am sooooo excited that I’m actually having a hen do. And that I’m not planning or organising it! (Hurrah for pregnant sisters who want to organise things!) And apparently people are coming which is even more exciting!
The plan is:
- Trying out stand-up paddle boarding
- Paddling (or canoeing) to a pub for lunch
- Getting dressed up at a hotel
- Dinner out
- Probably a couple of cocktails and/or dancing
- Some of us staying over in the hotel
What are you doing for yours? Are you excited too?!

Cocktails and dancing is the essence of my hen do too! We;re also having a dance lesson and having the routine filmed (dear God…)

Love it! Dancing, cocktails, girly fun times at the hotel. Sounds perfect to me!

@MrsSancerre: I did that for a hen do once! It was hilarious! I still have the DVD floating around somewhere (they showed it at the reception!)

I’m not sure what I’m doing yet. I really like the clubs in Brighton so might have a long weekend there and incorporate a spa day thing

Brighton is fab! Not that I’m biased of course because I live just down the road!

I had a burlesque class for mine. It was lots of fun! We followed it up with a trip to the pub. FI’s stag was awesome though… he rented a canal boat and spent days travelling up and down the UK on a huge pub crawl!

@Rachel631: Ooooo I would have loved to do the canal boat thing! But that takes more time than we have – so many of my friends have kids now sand most prefer not to be away over night. Canal boats are so slow and relaxing 🙂 The perfect way to travel…

@RainStorm: I’d love to do a trip like that with Fiance. It would be so much fun!

@Rachel631: Canal boat would be AMAZING. Drunken boating. Amazing.
I’m thinking of maybe having a meal and drinkies, then doing a lock-in at the local laserquest (2 hours, between 10:00pm and Midnight – we did it for my 22nd birthday and it was ace) or something along those lines. I’ve got a number of friends and family who don’t like drinking/dancing, so this seemed like something they’d enjoy too!
I briefly looked at mini-tanks because that sounded AMAZING, but then I realised it was like £90 per tank, and three of you had to share it. I’d imagined something more like off-road go-karting in tiny tanks, so that was nixed pretty quick.

@chronicwhimsy: Fiance said it was fantastic! I’m sure you could do it.

canal boat sounds amazing!!!
my Maid/Matron of Honor is a star and is organising a boozy night out. i love drinking and dancing so as long as those 2 things are involved im sure its going to be an awesome night! its going to be burlesque/moulin rouge fancy dress with plenty of drinking games!!
im thinking of doing a quieter afternoon tea style thing for the mums seeing as they are NOT invited to the drinking evening… there is never a need for my mum and future MIL to see me messy drunk!! LOL!
… ive also been told by my Maid/Matron of Honor that i need to keep the following weekend free and that i need to know where my passport is!! SQUEEEEEEE!!! i have NO IDEA what this is about but am SUPER excited!!! 🙂

I have no idea what I’m doing my chief bm is planning it all as a surprise, I’m so excited. She’s planned it completely already…I don’t get married until 2015. My Fiance knows what’s happening too, they both keep dropping hints.
