Ask Claire; Hen party accessories, yes or no?

This week’s query comes in from Jenny whose friend doesn’t want any tacky hen stuff for her hen party.

‘Hi Claire, my friend is getting married and says she doesn't want any tacky stuff on her hens. Says she'll kill us if any of us bring any stuff with us to put on her 😜 The girls think we should anyway. What do u think?’

Claire’s Advice;
Hi Jenny! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the hen party is all about the bride to be. If the bride says that she doesn’t want any of the tacky hen party stuff then your best option is not to get them, no matter what the other girls think.

If it is just the tacky side of the hen party accessories that she doesn’t like the idea of there are classier hen party accessories out there that she may like. These will probably set you back a few extra euro but are totally worth it! It might be no harm to have a few bits hidden in your bag in case she changes her mind on the night. If she doesn't, grand. But if she does get in the spirit of things on the night, you might be glad to have something to pull out.

It may be a case where the bride doesn’t want any hen party accessories at all, not all brides want the world to know it’s their hen party!
