Afternoon tea

For pregnant brides, it can be difficult to know what to organise hen party wise, but a hired marquee could be the perfect way to host an afternoon tea, barbeque, themed games night and more! This month, we’re here to suggest what you could do, to ensure the bride-to-be has a hen party to remember.

Spa weekend

From extravagant to simple spa days, there’s something out there for everyone. So if the bride-to-be is looking for an all-out hen party or a quiet number – you can tailor a spa trip with the ladies exactly, to your wants and needs.

There are limitations for a pregnant bride such as heat facilities include saunas and steam rooms but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a swim in the pool, a massage or a luxury mani-pedi.


If par-taking in karaoke sober sounds terribly daunting, book a private booth where you can sing until your heart’s content, with just your close friends. Have some tasty mocktails and little nibbles served up and you’ll be raring to go.

Afternoon tea

We all love a spot of afternoon tea in Britain and what a luxurious affair it is! With handmade sandwiches served with hand cut crusts and a colourful array of sweet delicacies, the whole group of ladies will feel delightfully satisfied with this stunning celebration.

There are plentiful places that serve a memorable afternoon tea, so pick one with beautiful grounds, it could just be the perfect place to stroll and relax afterwards too!

Meal at a fabulous restaurant

A hen do abroad can cost £1000 each, so why not treat yourselves to a slap-up meal in an extravagant restaurant? Test your taste buds and take a trip to a Michelin star restaurant where you can enjoy dining at it’s finest. Explore many plates of mouth watering cuisine and book in your hen party for a sophisticated evening.

Overnight films and games

When was the last time you and all your friends got together for a sleepover? Go back in time and watch your favourite films, put on your most comfortable pyjamas and set up camp for a night in with the ladies!
