On a separate note, I went to a friend's hen party in Nottingham last weekend. My husband has close friends in Nottingham, so he drove me there and booked a lovely hotel for us to stay in. It's located on the outskirts of Nottingham, so was quite secluded and romantic.

The hotel bathroom had quite a 'loud' design, but I liked it as it was different, and not all stark white.

My husband met up with his friends while I went to the hen party. The hen had to wear a whole collection of flowery garlands. She thought I was being sarcastic when I said it suited her complexion, but i really think it does! For my own hen party, I had to wear a tiara, and a flashing 'bride to be' sign, whilst holding a star-shaped wand. Cringe, (but secretly quite attached to it by the end of the night).

The rest of us had to wear a pretty flower lei, with photos of the bride to be attached. The girl who planned the party went through the poor girl's facebook pictures and picked out the worst ones to laminate. As unflattering as they were, she still looked good in all them.

Here's a couple pics of me and my ex-flatmate:

It was my first ever hen party I attended (thatwas not my own). I had a great time, and it was so nice to see my Nottingham ex-colleagues again. I can't wait for the wedding, as my friend will make a beautiful bride.

  3. Glad you had a wonderful time, it's always nice to hang out with your girlfriends. I remembered that I held a bachelorette party 2 yrs ago for my girlfriend and we had a blast. It was one crazy night! Is hen party is the same as bachelorette party? Not familiar with the UK terminology for certain things.
