It is not uncommon for a bride to want to keep her pre wedding bash to a small group of her nearest and dearest. This doesn’t have to take from the fun and in fact can mean that a myriad of options become available that wouldn’t work with a larger troop. Noelle has put together some fabulous options to help you plan a beautiful bijou hen.
Spa Day With Treatments and Afternoon Tea!
A spa might sound like a very typical suggestion for a hen party... but when it comes to having a smaller party, a spa actually really does make a great hen party activity. With a smaller group, you'll be able to fit in a treatment and a lovely afternoon tea of evening meal. It's likely that the bride to be wants a small hen party because she wants something a bit more relaxing, so unwinding at a spa before the wedding will definitely go down a treat!
Who doesn’t love wine and cheese? Wine tasting is the perfect activity for a small to medium hen party. With some wine education, some sharing boards to pair different food with different wines and a lovely laid back, ambient atmosphere, we can recommend the perfect place!
Veeno is chain which can be found in many locations around the UK including Leeds, Edinburgh, Bristol, Reading and more locations! Don't let the fact that it's a chain put you off. Veeno has a very authentic and unique feel in the place, and if you book a wine tasting session, your group will have heaps of fun.
If Veeno doesn't have a bar in the city you're having the hen party, have a search in your local area. Either way - we're sure the bride to be and hen party will love this as an activity!
