Advantages of Booking Your Hen Weekend Early
Your hen party is the ultimate, final blow out before you embark upon happily married life, after months of planning your Big Day – which is exactly why it’s so important to plan ahead, and get it right.
But, here’s a statistic you may not have expected – over 90% of weddings are organised two to three years in advance, where hen weekends are typically booked a mere 90 days prior to the event. Last Night of Freedom are rounding up their top reasons as to why booking up early is crucial.
Save the date
It may seem like an impossible task, but try to arrange dates everyone can make from early on. Planning in advance will give the girls enough notice to organise their diaries around it (and let their other halves know). This will also avoid any late drop-outs.
If you’re are hoping to attend a particular event such as a festival, theatre production or striptease show on your hen weekend, it’s vital to plan around this. Tickets tend to go on sale well in advance, so be sure to check the dates and times beforehand.
Booking flights or trains in advance is proven to be the most effective way to ensure cheaper travel – so be sure to take advantage of this. Another huge bonus of booking well in advance is that if you’re a particularly large group, you’ll be able to reserve seats together – so the party can start on the way there.
Whether you want to jet off to somewhere exotic, or would prefer to indulge yourselves in a glorious city within the UK – don’t be forced to settle on anything less than your first choice for destinations and activities. Ensure you book up early to guarantee the perfect celebratory weekend.
You may see yourselves spending your hen weekend in a gorgeous city apartment, or maybe a fabulous, 5-star spa retreat – whatever your preference, make sure to book up nice and early to guarantee the best accommodation. Getting in there first will eliminate disappointment, as the most popular hotels and apartments tend to be snapped up quickly – especially during the summer months.
Build up your kitty
Make sure you leave enough time to save up for the hen party kitty – so you can really splash out on your hen weekend celebrations. Booking ahead also means you can pay for your last night of freedom with a small deposit and monthly payments, helping you and the girls to spread the costs and save more. And, more money in the kitty means more cocktails – it’s an obvious decision.
No carbs before Marbs
Of course, you and the girls want to look utterly gorgeous on your hen do – as you strut your stuff on the beach, or pamper yourselves in a luxurious spa. And, the longer you’ve got until the hen weekend, the longer you’ve got to get that bikini bod in perfect condition.
