Does your bride like things a little more high end? Well, we have a few ideas for you. Remember, this is her day. So, if she’d rather scrumptious food instead of endless shots, or a night in her own bed instead of an all-nighter, then that’s how it has to be.
Of course, you can still insert cheeky little elements of fun along the way to keep her on her toes.
1. Fine Wine and Fine Food
Has your bride spent a few summers in Europe? Does she consider herself an expert in the art of wining and dining? Then, why not take her out to one of the many foodie destinations scattered around this beautiful city. Enjoy wine and charcuterie boards overlooking the ocean on the Mornington Peninsula or some of Australia’s best food and wine at the Yarra Valley.
You really are spoilt for choice, so make the most of it.
2. Little Sandwiches and Plenty of Champagne
Is there anything classier than a high tea? It’s also the perfect setting for a hens’ day. We’re talking about everyone crowded around tables enjoying a good chat, while the champagne flows and the table towers are filled with all the treats you could think of.
Everyone dressed in the prettiest of frocks, a scene befitting of the angels that you are.
If you’re operating on a budget, why not create your own high tea? Just fill the room with flowers and ribbons, set a dress code (all white, 40’s etc.) and prepare lots of beautiful food. You could even surprise the bride with some topless waiters, whose only job is to make sure everyone enjoys themselves.
3. A Day on The Bay
If your hens’ party falls between the months of around September and April, then a luxe booze cruise is a perfect idea. All the girls can relax in the sun and sip on cocktails and wine, all served by an even more delicious topless waiter.
You can do a tour of the bay and then book yourself in for our VIP package once you dock. A tour of the bay and tickets to the hottest male revue in town – that’s what your classy bride deserves.
4. Get Dressed Up and Gorge On Cocktails
A cocktail party is an ideal treat for the bride-to-be – with everyone arriving in beautiful dresses, canapés circling the room and, as the cocktails flow, the gossip levels increasing (all about the bride of course) – what could be better?
For a bit of extra fun, you could always organise a visit by one of our very talented strippers. You choose how crazy or tame the show is, and it really gets everyone involved. We can even help you out with venue hire at one of our incredible partner nightclubs.
5. Treat Yourself
Sometimes the best way to celebrate the beautiful bride is to don some dressing gowns and head somewhere where there’s nothing to do but sit back with a glass of champagne and ready yourself for some serious indulgence.
In fact, we recommend combining this experience with some heavy partying. It can be the perfect way to get ready for the big night, or, the best way to recover during the morning after.
When it comes to finding the perfect classy hens’ experience in Melbourne, don’t forget the following:
- It has to be all about the bride. It’s not about what the planners think will be fun, it has to be what the bride will love and , most importantly, feel comfortable with.
- Check the guest list before you make plans. Grandma may struggle with the boat trip, so make sure it’s appropriate for absolutely everyone attending.
- Everyone has a budget, and you need to take this into account. Try and think about everyone attending and ensure you choose something that allows all the bride’s favourite people to be there. The glammest day ever will be meaningless if everyone can’t attend.
With all of this in mind, you still have to create something memorable. It should be out of the ordinary, a day like no other and something that the bride will look back on fondly for the rest of her life.
