Me thinks that I'm over the hill for any of that tiara wearing malarkey !
Wedding number one's hen do was a very quiet affair.For some reason I decided that an evening out with just my mum and sister was a great way to celebrate my pending nuptials. From what I remember, hen parties were really low key those days. I can't recall any of the paraphernalia that seems to be almost compulsory these days, or anything other than a simple night out with the girls. Maybe I just missed out, and brides-to-be all over the country were partying away whilst my fun and games were over by 10pm! We lived it up by sharing a bottle of Chardonney at a wine bar, followed by a burger. We couldn't stay out late as dad was picking us up in his Skoda!
A burger with my mum and sister. I sure knew how to push the boat out!
This time around, I want to go to town and celebrate my forthcoming Big Day in style. A day, evening or whatever, to remember ! But how? I've been racking my brains for ideas and being a right old pain by bugging my friends to come up with suitable ideas themselves.
So what have we come up with so far?
What I really, really would like to do is have a weekend in Paris (where else!) But the cost of travel, accomodation etc seems to have ruled that one out sadly.
Oh, to be in Paris!
Glamping sounded like fun.
Even posh camping was too close to nature for some!
A spa weekend perhaps?
Too much exposing of flesh!
Quad biking, paintballing, walking on ropes in trees, canoeing, mountain biking?
And risk breaking a leg? Maybe not such a good idea?
Stretch Limo and a show.
Limo....no ! Show....maybe !
Cupcake decorating, Dirty Dancing lesson, cocktail masterclass ?
Liking the sound of that!
Or maybe something along the lines of an overnight stay in Bristol (where else!) combined with an activity of sorts, shopping, cocktails, great meal and finally on to a bar for a bit of late night chilling. Sounds good? But please ladies,don't even think about anything pink and tacky !
