Although some bride’s shy away from the hen party attention and fuss that comes with being a bride, most will want to embrace it. Having been there and wore the veil, we are all for embracing your bridezilla moment, especially when you’ve been watching what you eat, doing all the squats and sleeping with a face lathered in serum and a head full of conditioner – your toned body, shiny haired tresses and dewy skin are all ready to diva! So if you’re ready to take your bridal moment and give is 110 percent, get ready to strike a pose, perfect that pout and have some fabulous fun with your fellow divas! Here are 5 hen party activities for the diva bride.
1. Snap happy
Make the most of looking your best by capturing the moment forever with a professional photoshoot. Some photographers provide hair and makeup packages and cater for individuals or groups. Boudoir Girls in Galway offer themed shoots with props and costumes for every style and taste, from Gatsby glam to pyjama parties. Drop Natalie a message to discuss the options for your event. She can tailor it to work with your budget.
2. Star struck
Ever fancied channelling your inner Adele and belting out some ballads with your besties? Swap the hairbrush and the bedroom mirror for a real microphone and book a private karaoke room so you can sing and dance the night away. Or, take it up a notch and record your very own CD in a recording studio. There are a few great studios in Dublin that offers group packages where you can show off your star quality.
3. Dare to bare
There are plenty of themed dance classes out there, but the ultimate option for self-confessed divas has to be burlesque. Classy but oh so sexy, and most importantly lots of fun, burlesque is perfect for all shapes and sizes. Check out the Irish Burlesque School in Dublin and get fluttering those feathers! Other options for dancing queens include Rebel Barre in Dublin, who will choreograph a dance just for you or help you learn one of your favourite dances or mix it up with some Beyonce and ballet barre, the latest craze.
4. Style secrets
Of course you and your crew are already impeccably stylish, but there’s no harm in upping your game and venturing out of your wardrobe comfort zone with a style workshop or personal shopper session. You never know what secret style gems you might learn about. A professional stylist can come to your chosen location and help you learn about colour, body shape, wardrobe management and more. Or if you feel like splashing the cash, book in for an afternoon with a personal shopper and hit the shops. Get in touch with Agnes to chat through her style workshops for your hen party.

Divas love to sip cocktails and dance the night away while looking fabulous, but they don’t do queues. Why wait at the bar when you can order your drinks from the comfort of your own table? If you’re celebrating a special occasion with a group of friends, book a table in the VIP area of your favourite night time haunt and enjoy table service all night. Plus, reserving a private area means you avoid having to stand all night in killer heels! We love Sophie’s outside terrace on the roof for Soho House feels in Dublin for a night of classy fun.
