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: HONEYMOON
After "kidnapping" his bride, the groom would take her and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down them, the bride would probably already be pregnant! A "bride price" would then be negotiated. An earlier source is the early Jewish custom of the bride and groom spending a week together alone immediately after the marriage feast. The earliest reference to this practice is Jacob's marriages to Leah and Rachel.
