Don’t upset your friends and family by been a Henzilla when organising your hen party or celebration weekend check out of tips below for a stress free hen weekend.
MOTHER HEN Hen weekend TOP TIPS
1. Book Early:
My hens often pick a date 6-2 months before the wedding this way the bride isn’t tied up with dress fittings and other wedding related things which mainly happen closer to the wedding date. Also I think it’s great to leave a good gap between the hen and the wedding so you are all excited about seeing each other again and this helps to spread the cost too.
2. Hen Party Dates:
May is the most popular month on the calendaras are Bank Holidays and so at a premium price. We find that school holidays are often a great chance to pick up a good deal especially if you have a group of teachers, unlike regular accommodation school holidays are not at a higher price here at Norfolk House. In fact prices start at £180pp for a 2 night midweek stay. If you cant get everyone to agree to two nights why not ask about outfabulous All Inclusive Sundays?
Ideally send out this email about 18-12 months before your planned weekend. Giving time for all guests to put away a little money each week. Don’t forget they’ll be saving for your wedding too and possibly other hen weekends. Some guests get invited to 4+ parties a year and can’t accept all of them so early planning is essential if you want all your favourite BFF to attend.
GET YOUR DEPOSIT OFF EACH GUEST FRIST before you even look for accommodation this will save so much time and heartache.
Having your £50pp deposits at the ready is a powerful bargaining tool if you are competing with another group for a date. Most holiday homes will except £50+pp as a deposit then hey presto you can book the place of your dreams and you then have months to relax, plan, prepare and save up for the hen party weekend. The relief you will feel once the house is booked will be immense.
We are slap bang in the centre of the UK, so if you have friends in the Highlands of Scotland or on the South Coast its equal distance for everyone. We are located between Manchester and Leeds airports and we have a direct trains from London to Brighouse (2 miles) 2.5hrs. Leeds is 20 mins if you do fancy a great night out on the town.
