A Starter Guide To Hen Night Essentials

January 31st, 2017

Hen parties have become a huge industry over the last few decades, to the point where a lot of holiday operators lay on special trips. Ask any Dubliner trying to have a quick pint in Temple Bar of a weekend. Between the stags on one side of a bar and the hens on the other, it can seem like all the world is having a last night of freedom.

 

While there are more ways than ever before of doing a Hen, there are some traditions that remain. Staples of the occasion, which it would be a shame if we were ever to lose. So you can take the occasion to Dublin, Amsterdam or Tallinn, wherever you want. But it’s important to keep a place for the classics – those fun hen night accessories that make the occasion truly authentic!

 

It Begins With Headwear

Let’s be honest, here. The chances that you will end the night wearing the same thing you put on your head to start it are no better than even. Nonetheless, a hen night would not be right and proper without them. If you want to stay a bit classy, then a crown or a tiara is appropriate (as long as the bride-to-be has the biggest headgear).

 

If you’re thinking a little more riotous, then there is a wide world of hen-night headwear out there for you. Devil horns and halos are de rigueur on such a night. Job-themed hats also work- but just be advised, taking a hat from a police officer “for authenticity” is still illegal.

 

Inflatables: Not Just For Swimming!

The first rule of Hen Night Club is that nothing is too cliched. If you have to ask yourself if something is, you’re doing it wrong. If you sit telling yourself that the whole thing looks like something from a TV show, then it’s an excellent hen night. And yes, inflatables are part of that.

 

Now, let’s be honest, some inflatables can be quite rude, and this is why you keep hen night photos and wedding photos in separate albums. But classier ones like rings and crowns are acceptable. They may not look as stunning as the diamond engagement ring the hen is wearing. They probably shouldn’t; no one should be upstaging her on this of all nights.

 

Always Read The Signs

It is essential, if you want a hen night that lives up to the grand traditions, to have a few signs that leave nobody in any doubt that this is a hen party. It may not be an actual law, but people do frown on any bride-to-be who is not wearing an “L” plate on her back.

 

Also popular are customized T-shirts which can say pretty much what you want them to. It is considered reasonable to have a personalized one for each member of the party – nicknames rather than real, ideally. And while uniformity is part of the fun, the bride’s should be special. A popular way to go is to style them like football shirts – in which case, hers should always be the number one. Because she is!

 

Cute Australia Wedding

March 19th, 2014

Renata and Santino are the sweetest and funniest couple ever and taking pictures of Santino was such an hard job, because of is jokes I couldn’t stop laughing the entire time.

The wedding was more like an improvisation, they just decided to get married two weeks before the actual day and I knew from the start that I was going to have so much fun creating at the same time something really magical and romantic.

The ceremony took place at NSW Registry (http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au), something really simple but the first look they gave at each other was just epic.

The reception on the boat OCEANOS II (http://www.oceanos.com.au) was intimate but absolutely gorgeous, the atmosphere was quite unique and the Sydney view from the boat was breathtaking.
