Hen Party Dilemias!!

Post  kr15 on Fri Jul 09, 2010 5:50 am

There's been a constant battle of what to do for my Hen Party. My bridesmaid is lovely, but skint, so I've decided whatever we do I can afford to pay up to £50 towards hers if we go for a weekend away etc.

Had a good chat with another mate last night and she told me that my Hen Party should be doing things that I'll never get the chance to do again. Which is true as we're hoping to start a family straight away.

So I've been researching and come up with 2 options....

1) A weekend in Alton Towers (late October). Found a travelodge an hour away that is next to a tabletable restaurant and is cheap. For entry to the park, petrol and accomodation it's about £50 per person. The plan would be we'd go up after work on the Friday, grab a burger somewhere on the way (4 hour drive) and then stay in the hotel. Next day drive to park and spend day there then come back to hotel and go for meal in restaurant. Then stay in hotel and maybe go somewhere on the way home (Birmingham or Cribbs for shopping trip!).

2) The local indoor playcenter does Adult bookings! For £20 each we would get an hour and a half of acting like small children with big slides and ball pools etc etc. Then after there is a restaurant a 5 minute drive away that does carvery's so we could all go there for meal and drinkies after Smile

But I'm not sure what to do! If I did the weekend away there would prob be 5 of us and then I'd do a big night out when we got back. Or if I did the playcentre that would be the only thing I did. But would you pay £20 to go in a play center for an hour and a half?

Honestly - no, I personally wouldnt pay £20 to do the playpark thing, but thats just me, sorry!! Crying or Very sad

I like the Alton towers idea, although you could also book a self catering cottage/ house for a group of you, then do something like a cupcake/cookie making class, or cocktail lesson before going out on the town in your chosen place, then shopping the next day? Depending when you have your hen night, and how many are going, I am sure it wouldnt cost much more than £50 per person?

Alternatively, you could make it really simple by going to someones house, giving each other a make-over/mani/pedi then going out on the town? You could hire a butler-in-the-buff for not much money betweeen you all to add some fun??

What would you rather do? Personally the whole "Hen Do" thing fills me with horror, I (and another of her friends) organised a huge one for my sister in law and the whole weekend was my worst nightmare! affraid When it came to my own I had a chat with my friend that was organising it and we had a lovely civilised lunch with champagne cocktails in town! Once you decide which one you would prefer go with that one.

Oh I would much prefer the playcentre, but thats cos Im afraid of the amusments!

I think it depends on your hens. If you know they will all enjoy themselves at the theme park, then book that. I really dont like the idea of being away for several days, but of course your hens might love it!
