Manchester is a popular city with hen and stag do's there is so much to do, we asked The Manchester Hen’s to give us a guide to the perfect hen weekend in the city.
We might be biased but we think Manchester is THE best city in the world, and an absolute perfect hen destination - unless you want a beach, we can’t help with that one sorry.
If you’re a newly appointed MOH or Bridesmaid then we know how overwhelming it can be knowing where to start. Girls are HARD WORK in these situations, so we’re here to offer a helping hand (and a hug or a gin if you need).
Here’s our guide for planning THE BEST (Manchester) HEN EVER for your number one girl and her tribe.
SET UP A GROUP CHAT and INVITE THE BRIDES’ GUEST LIST. We’d suggest deciding on the location (Manchester, obviously) and the date and letting the group know. Opening the can of worms about where and when to go just gets stressful so Be bold.
If you give enough notice those that want to be there, will be. BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION and GET THE DEPOSITS IN. we suggest you Get that sorted as soon as you know numbers, make sure you get a deposit from everyone and let them know that it’s non-refundable if they drop out. It’s also worth letting the group know that if anyone bails, the price per person will go up. It’s not your responsibility as a bridesmaid to pay for them.
We have some great recommendations for different sized groups and types of properties in and around the Manchester area!
BOOK our 'The Mother Hen' DECORATIONS PACKAGE!
Obviously, you want to have the ‘Bride to be’ balloons pinned up, create a confetti balloon arch with entwined foliage, hand out goody bags to all hens, and have the prosecco chilled and ready to pop...right?!
But........ a) you don’t have time.....b) you want to travel and arrive with the bride without missing out on any fun and...... c) you want it to be a surprise.
With this in mind, we recently launched The Mother Hen; 3 tiered ‘hen arrival packages’ (silver, gold and platinum) which involve us, the mother hens, accessing your property to install all the ‘insta-worthy’ hen decorations in time to surprise your bride when she arrives. Because let’s face it, it’s all about the gram’.
DECIDE ON YOUR ACTIVITIES
Try and keep as much of the weekend’s plans a surprise from the bride. We can recommend
suitable activities based on her likes / dislikes, then we’ll get everything booked plus design and print your itineraries.
The range of activities in Manchester is endless, our favourites at the moment are:
• Bottomless Brunch - Pretty obvious but it’s always a winner – great value for money and all included in a set price so really easy for a big group. There are so many restaurants in Manchester now offering a brunch deal with different food and drinks packages in various types of settings. Give us an idea of what your bride likes and we’ll point you in the right direction. Plus, we’ll make sure there are goody bags (i.e hangover kits) ready and waiting for you at the venue... you know, just in case.
• Flower Crown Workshop - At flower lounge These are becoming more and more popular and it’s no surprise as it’s such a great afternoon activity, you also get to keep your work of art to wear on your night out so the hen accessories are sorted!
• City Canal Cruise At city centre cruises Sail along the Bridgewater Canal via Media City and Salford Quays, you can private hire the barge with a food and drinks package included... who says you need to go to Ibiza for a boat party?!
Thanks so much for giving us this guide to a perfect hen do! There is so many options we're not sure how you managed to narrow them down, we're still trying to narrow down our favourites!
