Every girl wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day. After all, the whole point of a wedding is to achieve that perfect, happily ever after, right? But, there’s a lot of build up to that fairytale dream, and you don’t have to wait until the big day to make the bride feel like a queen. So, if you’re getting ideas together for the hens’ night out, you might want to consider a Disney theme.
If your budget is flush, then a trip to Disneyland could be on the cards. With parks in Paris, California, Florida, Hong Kong and Tokyo, a Disney themed party could take you anywhere in the world. If you’re more interested in taking to the sea than staying on land, there are now Disney themed cruises too. If your means are more limited, then with the right decoration and a touch of magic, near enough any venue can be turned into a princess’ dream.
This is where you can have a little DIY fun. Take a day out to shop for your perfect princess ensemble. Red and white polka dot dresses are perfect for Minnie Mouse. If you’re a little more feisty, Tinkerbell may be for you. Just keep an eye out for beautiful green dresses and use some fabric scissors to cut the hem into pointed triangles. For those more dedicated to fancy dress, adult Disney gowns are available online. Order a hooped petticoat and see your dress swing like Cinderella’s. Or if you’re handy with a needle and thread, you might take to making one from scratch. Here are some of our favorite themed outfits:
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The bride can be made up as the beautiful Snow White, while her seven favorite ladies choose the aptest dwarf for their personality.
- 101 Dalmatians. Make the bride center of attention in a decadent Cruella DeVille ensemble. The hens can paint their faces to look like adorable dalmatian pups.
- Wendy and the Lost Boys. Everybody loves Wendy Darling. Get your bride a cute blue frock and have the hens dress up in Lost Boy animal outfits.
You don’t need to buy snapchat filters to look pretty as a princess. When it comes to thinking up Disney-themed accessories, the possibilities are endless. Try some customized sashes, personalized shot glasses, or hen party t-shirts with your names in Disney’s classic font. Mickey Mouse ears are always a fun addition too.
Why not try out making some Disney themed cocktails? Yellow pina colada for Belle, Black Vodka for Maleficent and Blue Curacoa for Ariel. If you fancy going all out, why not squirt some whipped cream on top of a white chocolate liqueur? Stick two Oreos on top to make some adorable Mickey Mouse-style ears.
As Lumiere says in Beauty and the Beast, “Be our Guest”! Put on a lovely spread for the beautiful bride-to-be. After all, you’re all going to be hungry at some point during the day. Finger food or a sit-down meal, there are various little touches to add some Disney magic to your dining experience. Try out a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party with cute cakes on quaint crockery.
