Pamper parties and ‘girl’s nights in’ are a great alternative to traditional hen parties. Don’t know where to start or worried you’ll need to keep your guests entertained? Don’t worry, the Scented Candle experts at Melt know all about adding a little bit of luxury.
For many, the idea of a girl’s night in might sound boring but it might be just what you need to help you relax. It is also a great idea for a second Hen Party coming up to the wedding. Additionally, it’s great for those with older ladies within the hen party and for those who don’t drink and enjoy nightclubs.
To start with, decide who you are going to ask and invite them, choose which city you would like to host your Girls Night In, and decide whether you would prefer to stay in a hotel or an apartment. Nottingham, Manchester and Leeds are always popular.
So when it comes down to it, there are lots of things to do to liven up the night without going too wild.
So the wedding is getting closer. There is no better excuse to get pampered. Book a Spa-rty party at your chosen location, let the spa come to you and indulge is some relaxing treatments all in the comfort of your hotel. Light some Scented Candles, listen to some soothing music and enjoy a manicure. Add some wine and pre-wedding gossip and it’s the perfect way to spend the evening.
We are not suggesting you play Monopoly or dig out Cluedo. Instead host a girly game night and indulge in each other’s secrets. “What’s a dame to do?” is a fun game to help break the ice if all of your guests aren’t acquainted and a great way to start the night. You can then quiz the Bride to Be with a game of ‘Mr & Mrs’ or ‘Guess the body part’.
If you are staying in an apartment, why not have your girls help prepare your favourite meal in the kitchen. Not only is everyone involved but you also have a meal that you all get to eat when it’s ready. Indulge in your favourite wine and a beautifully dressed table, complete with candles to make the night feel extra special. Alternatively you can splurge and order pizzas on room service delivered to your hotel room for everyone to tuck into.
Whatever little DIY project you have left to complete for your wedding day have your ladies help! They can produce those hand-made wedding invitations or name places you wanted but just didn’t have the time to do. Not only will doing this together be much more fun, it will take much less time and it will make your hen party feel like they have really helped out and contributed something towards the wedding day.
Chick flick marathon
Starved of watching your favourite chick flicks? Compile a list of your favourite movies, provide some snacks and remember the tissues for those who love a good cry. Most of the Girls Night In packages includes access to a DVD player or Unlimited Movies from the hotels movie channel so you won’t be short of things to watch. Don’t forget to set the mood, dim the lights or light some scented candles to create the perfect atmosphere.
Hire a Pro
What takes your fancy? You can hire a team of professional beauty therapists equipped to make your hen party girls feel relaxed and rejuvenated. If that isn’t for you, why not hire a professional Butler In the Buff? You could have a hotty serve your cocktails or serve your meal adding that little something extra to the evening which your girls are sure to enjoy!
