Tales of the unexpected

Tales of the unexpected

Q. I'd like to make sure the hen day is actually full of nice surprises, not just the obvious predictable stuff. Any suggestions for making the day go better?

A. Danielle Kendall says: Our No.1 rule is to plan a hen party full of personal touches and surprises that your bride will love. You should also consider the level of surprise. Some brides-to-be are perfectly happy to hand over all planning and control to their friends, and others like to know what's going on and even have a hand in the organising.

If your bride is the latter type, maybe consider adding in surprises to the day that she's planned – if you've got a lovely weekend away in a big house sorted, arrange for a mobile bar to come and mix up some delicious cocktails. Or if you're going out, how about hiring a glam squad to get the bride looking her best?

Or for a low-key surprise, how about putting together a goodie bag full of little treats? Hen party accessories have come a long way, and you can get some gorgeous gifts, such as clutch bags, lapel pins and headbands to adorn your bestie. The best advice we can offer, though, is to remember the person you're planning for and plan accordingly!
