Hen and Stag

Traditionally the ‘last night of freedom’, hen and stag do’s are now basically an excuse to go and have a good time, in whatever format that might take.

It doesn’t need to mean a heavy drinking session on the high street, it can mean a pamper session at a spa or even a long weekend shopping in New York. We have ideas for every type, group and budget.

Simply choose from our ‘Hen and Stag’ posts below to start planning your wedding like a pro
