Does the bride to be need an excuse to have a party? In most cases the
answer is clearly no – after all this is a golden opportunity to say
goodbye to singlehood!
Planning is vital and all part of the fun, who will I invite and where shall we go? There is so much to think about on this fun occasion.
Many Hen Parties are change dress up and have some fun, visiting favourite pubs and clubs and generally letting your hair down. But beware do not get carried away especially if the ‘girls night out’ is close to the wedding day – after all you will need time to recover! So remember to get the invites sorted out well in advance, as you do not want to miss any one out due to other commitments.

Wedding Trivia: RICE THROWING
Rice has been used as a symbol of fertility and as a wish for a "full pantry" in various parts of the world from ancient to modern times. In the past, rice was not the only thing thrown at the bride and groom as the left the wedding. Wheat, instead of rice, was thrown in France, figs and dates were thrown in Northern Africa, and a combination of coins, dried fruit, and candy was thrown in Italy. In some European countries eggs are thrown!Rice is not harmful to the birds that eat it, but an article in California professing this to be the case, has caused birdseed to replace rice at most weddings. Flower petals, confetti, baubles, and balloons are often used today instead of rice.
