A Maid of Honour’s Checklist for the Hen do

Jun 29, 2018

Kelsey Rose knows that the hen do can be one of the most important parts of the lead up to the wedding, and Kelsey Rose believe in helping out at every stage. Whilst there is no right or wrong answer, we know our Kelsey Rose brides love a combination of playful, memorable and personalized features throughout the hen do and we’ve put a list of our top-tips for a great night:

1. Ask all the guests to bring photos of the bride to decorate the venue with. This is a great conversation starter and a beautifully heartfelt ad personal way to show the bride how much you care.
2. Write a letter to the bride for them to read the day after the hen do, full of sincere wishes from the other guests, anecdotes and personal messages. A great way to commemorate everyone’s experience!
3. Make thoughtful yet tasteful accessories to commemorate the evening; try beautiful personalized necklaces that can be worn by everyone who attended the hen do on the wedding day itself, so the bride knows she has the full support of her friends and family on her big day.

4. Pick a daytime activity that allows everyone to get messy, like paintballing and offset it with an elegant activity in the evening where all attendees can show off their Kelsey Rose dresses and feel sophisticated and beautiful all night.
