    I think my hen do was organised before the wedding - ha ha ...

    My hen do will take place in Brighton - for one night only - as many of the ladies joining me have kids ... plus budget was an issue.

    After the intial struggle in finding a hotel to allow us for one night we settled on the Premier Inn (not as fancy as we liked but we know that they have a good standard of rooms - and GOOD beds)

    Two of my best friends have organised an 'activity' for the day time, which will be a complete surprise but I am told that I will love every mintue ! ha ha

    I have then managed to find a hair dresser who will give me the 1940/50's victory roll hair do I am after, I will then don my huge petticoat and 'rock n roll' dress which my mum has made me (WHAT A STAR)

    We were then thinking of having a Tapas party at the local La Tasca as they do a party deal at £15 or £20 a head - LOADS of food - people can then pick what they want.

    And then onto a night of drinking and DANCING ! - what is everyone else doing ??

    Sounds fab!

    I'm just having a night out in town with a load of friends. Having a neon retro theme, so lots of neon pink, green and yellow leg warmers, beads and tutus [​IMG] We're all meeting in my mums pubs for a few drinks and possibly food (if I can sweet talk my mother into doing it!) then it'll either be a party bus or limo into Swansea few drinkies around the pubs then onto nightclub where we'll be having a reserved area next to the dance floor [​IMG]

    Looking forward to it now [​IMG]

    All sounds fanbloodytastic and yes I definitely would like to see some pics! Not got a theme for mine, but might insist that everyone don some sort of headwear!
