Today, however, hen parties have slowly transitioned from ‘tea and chitchats’ to more alcohol-fuelled occasions: Lady Clara Paget’s wild ‘Claztonbury’ hen in the Cotswolds caught everyone’s eye last summer, along with Ivy Getty’s glamorous weekend in Mykonos and Paris Hilton’s two-part hen in Las Vegas and Beverly Hills. At best, a combination of both glamour and tradition, here are a few tips to consider when planning a high-society hen.
Location is key when organising a high-society hen. Perhaps you’ll follow in the footsteps of Pippa Middleton, who celebrated her hen weekend in an exclusive chalet in Meribel, where the brood spent the day winding down the slopes in the company of the Duchess of Cambridge. For brides seeking sunshine, take inspiration from Saskia Connery and Ivy Getty, who both flocked to Mykonos for sunset dancing at Scorpios and cruising around the glittering Greek coastline on a yacht. Or why not motorcycle through Tuscan vineyards in the company of friends dressed in thematic white like Lady Kitty Spencer?
