3 Money. Very Important. Get a realistic idea of how much cash you’re all willing to spend and where you want that money to go. Do you prize luxury accommodation over amazing activities? Or do you want to put most of your budget into an enormous clubbing and cocktail fund?
Fitting a hen into a day with an overnight stay somewhere gorgeous works brilliantly if you’ve got a tight budget. Start with something active like a dance class, horse riding or whitewater rafting (sounds terrifying, is hilariously good fun), then calm things down with something crafty: a cocktail masterclass or cake-making session gets people talking. Finish with drinks, food and games before heading off for a night at a great club. This way, your gang can choose to opt-in for as much or as little as they can manage, while the bride has an amazing day full of fun.
If you’ve got more cash to splash and a game group to play with, then a luxury city apartment or a cosy cottage provides you with a fabulous base to head out from, and plenty of time across a weekend to make an incredible experience. Or if you’re going abroad, how about an luxury villa?
