You may never have imagined you’d be pregnant around the same time you are getting married. Involvement in the wedding experience suddenly becomes a bit trickier; going to a dress fitting having no idea what size you’ll be on the day, or trying to get the best out of the traditional hen party celebration can be frustrating. Going out on the town and enjoying a bottle of wine with friends followed by dancing the night away suddenly isn’t an option anymore.

Despite the difficulties that will inevitably arise, there is absolutely no need to sacrifice your enjoyment of the day. There are still plenty of ways to enjoy a hen party just as much as everyone else, if not more considering the absence of a hangover! Plus, you’ll remember everything and be able to laugh about the funniest stories with the girls reminding them of what they said or did the night before.

Below we take a lot at a few ideas and tips to help you get the most out of the bachelorette party…

Pamper Party

This is an incredibly popular party idea where you get to be pampered in the comfort of your own home or better yet make a full day of it and book a spa with friends. Those who are pregnant can enjoy a prenatal spa and those who aren’t can go deep tissue to work out the kinks.

Chocolate making or Cooking Class

With a chocolate making session, not only do you learn how to make various delights (and eat them in the process), but you also get to sit down which is ideal if you’re pregnant. It also helps satisfy any potential cravings you may be experiencing for chocolate – which has also been linked to serotonin levels which give you that natural good feeling post-chocolate feasting. For those looking for something more savory, how about booking a fun cooking class to suit whatever cuisine you love.

Afternoon Tea

For those in search of a classier affair then afternoon tea is a must. You get the chance to really spend some quality time with your friends whilst also enjoying a selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
