It’s always a privilege to be asked to be involved in a wedding party but it can and does entail a little planning and responsibility which can be a little daunting, especially when it comes to organising that great and final send-off.
If you’re planning your best friends last night of freedom, why not consider hiring a party house for a weekend? We know that finding hen and stag group accommodation can be tricky business- it’s not something easily found on Airbnb and not every hotel will be accommodating.
With private house hire you’ll benefit from more privacy, flexibility and you’re sure to find something more suitable to the occasion and the attendees in terms of location, facilities and activities. Whether you’re looking for something scenic with a country feel or more modern and cosmopolitan; there’s plenty of choice sure to suit your theme and special guests personality.
As for activities, the sky’s the limit.
In some instances you could coordinate all of your party activities on site:
If you have a pool on site why not coordinate a Hawaiian themed pool party for one of the afternoons/evenings. Line tables with grass skirts, wear garlands, use colourful lanterns around the pool area and social spaces and coordinate games like limbo and pass the coconut.
If it has spa facilities such as a hot tub, steam room or sauna, plan out a spa session for some much needed relaxation and pampering; bring along some face masks, nail polishes and removers and some scrubs and moisturisers for body glow, manicure, pedicure and facial treatments too.
Why not coordinate a movie under the stars? You can do this simply with a large sheet, projector, speaker and laptop or games console. Organise classic movie snacks such as popcorn and sweets and a watch a film that’s a favourite of the bride/groom to be for an evening that is a little more chilled- perfect for a final night wind down.
You could invite a caterer to your accommodation to organise a slap-up meal, BBQ or buffet for you and your group. Perhaps alongside this or in addition you could coordinate a cocktail making class. Suggest attendees bring a bottle and a recipe that you can all try and throw in a few fun games and prizes into the mix.
If you’re looking for additional activities, don’t hesitate to ask local activity coordinators if they’re able to come to your vacation home to entertain the party for an exclusive feel. Activities such as burlesque dancing, baking and some craft based activities should have no problems in accommodating your request.
For one of the days or nights, look to the local area for inspiration:
Once you’ve found a location or house you love, look at what is taking place in the local area and coordinate your trip with a festival or special event that is taking place; you may simply find it has a lovely shopping district and want to allow for some time to explore the area or highly recommended food scene. Perhaps it is a hot spot for a fantastic night life with prohibition bars, comedy nights, karaoke bars or clubs that play your kind of music all night long. You could hire a limousine or sports cars for a VIP experience to get you from A-B, to explore the local area or to get you to the clubs. Why not look to hire a photographer to capture the special event for little extra extravagance.
The beauty being you’ll get the best of both; you can take full advantage of the facilities and surroundings of your retreat and team it with a local area that has plenty more to offer; allowing you to curate a truly fantastic and memorable time for all involved. We’ll guarantee a great time for all.
