So last weekend I had my hen do (bachelorette party) and it was absolutely amazing! So I thought I’d share it here, because I cannot stop talking about it!
My best friend/ Maid of Honour picked me up on the Saturday and took me to a beautiful cottage on the outskirts of the Cotswolds, not too far from where I live. She told me to count to 100 and then walk inside. Now me being me, I lost count a few times so who knows how long I waited for! I walked in and there was my cousin/ bridesmaid, my mum and godmother, my mother in law and sister in law to be, and my amazing closest friends were there with streamers, poppers, confetti and pimms!
We sat down in the beautiful lounge which was covered in rose gold balloons (rose gold was the theme, my best friend knows me so so well) and participated in some games and quizzes, then we had some cocktail making which was so much fun! I made a champagne margarita and sex on the beach, then my own cocktail which predominately comprised of gin, gin and more gin! (There was a bit of Malibu, peach snapps and a splash of lemonade too).
We then made our own pizzas which was so much fun and seriously delicious. My pizza was basically a mountain as food is life.
After that, it was time for chilling in the hot tub that had been hired for me. It was so good! One of my friends said I looked like a pageant queen because of my make up, bikini and tiara😂.
Now the main event of the evening was still to come, a proper karaoke set!! We were belting out so many songs, old and new, and I cannot sing to save my life but I still love doing it, and it was the best thing ever! Everyone enjoyed themselves and got involved! This went onto about midnight when we decided to go back into the hot tub (4 degrees outside, that was fun getting out!).
I generally had so much fun, and I really hate loud crowded places so having a cottage to ourselves with people I’m really comfortable with was so me, rather than going out clubbing or something, which makes me feel so anxious! My best friend knows me so well, and I’m so lucky to have her and my amazing friends and family!
I’m getting so excited now, 103 days at the time of writing until my wedding day (best friend had my hen do booked three months in advance in case I broke my leg or something, I’m clumsy as can be) and 115 days until my honeymoon! It’s going to be amazing!
Anyone else had a hen do recently or looking forward to one? Or are you getting married soon? Let me know in the comments!

One thought on “My Hen Do!”
Ahh! This seems like such a fun bachelorette party. Staying at a cottage sounds like such a nicer time than going out. You looked beautiful, too!
