You decide on the plan.

Think about the hen and stag, their interests, what they both enjoy doing,  plus anything they will definitely hate! Of course ask their friends and family for ideas but in the end, you’re organising it so you make the call. Too many peoples opinions can often make final decisions much harder.

Think about the type of couple they are;

Will they love the glitz and glam of a party weekend in Liverpool, a fun-filled time in Brighton or a more laid-back weekend in Bath or Bristol visiting the Thermae Spa.

Decide if you all want to do everything together

Do you want to split up for certain activities or keep everyone together. Bubble football may not be everyone’s cup of tea, some may prefer a pamper session, go-karting or perhaps a cheeky butler to serve you cocktails and prosecco whilst a chef is cooking the dinner for you all.

 

 

Make sure there are some ‘group rules’ in place before you set off.  

You might all be good friends, but no one wants to be in the middle of a domestic over dinner or left sitting red-faced at breakfast following the night befores drunken smooch that seemed a great idea at the time…
