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: BRIDAL PARTY
This term has many origins from different cultures. In Anglo-Saxon times, the groom had the help of "bridesmen" or "brideknights" to help him capture and/or escort his bride. Later they would make sure that the bride got to the church and to the groom's home afterwards. The women who accompanied and assisted the bride were called "bridesmaids" or "brideswomen".
