Super hen Ella has been a bridesmaid three times and lists below the best lessons she's learned from organising different hen parties:
  • book as much in advance as you possibly can and get as much paid for in advance as you can.
  • a spreadsheet of who's paid what, who's chosen what on the menu etc is invaluable and don't forget to print it out and take it with you!
  • if your credit card can take it, pay for meals etc on one card and charge people afterwards - saves all that horrible bill splitting on the night.
  • if you're in a unfamiliar location, print out maps for everyone with key locations marked
  • don't be afraid to order people about - it's the only way to get everyone in the right place at the right time
