With Christmas and New Year done and dusted, there have been a ton of romantic proposals in the air. If your best friend is one of the lucky lasses who is now looking forward to a white wedding this summer, your role as Maid of Honour means that planning the hen of her dreams is up to you.
Sometimes it’s best not to overcomplicate such roles. We all know what a hen weekend entails, and staying calm and confident when planning the event is the best bet to ensure a stress-free weekend away that your bride to be will love.
First and foremost, getting the girls together should be high up on your to do list. Do your best to keep the costs for the basics low, so that more guests are able to afford the weekend away that you have planned. Travelodge hotels in Newcastle are a low cost option, while offering rooms in a central location for convenient access to any activities and adventures you have planned.
If you’re lucky enough to have mutual friends, meeting up and dishing out the invites is the way to go, however, the best way of keeping everyone informed and up to date is by setting up a Facebook event page.
Once you have an idea of attendees, collect an initial deposit for the weekend off every confirmed guest. This will cover the cost of your rooms at one of the budget Travelodge hotels in Newcastle. Remembering that most Travelodge hotels accept three adults per room, divide the total room rate by three and let the ladies know the cost of their accommodation for the entire trip.
Newcastle hen weekends should definitely carry a ‘girls on tour’ theme. Arrange for plenty of everything pink and sparkly to be thrown into the mix, with a few feather boas, cowboy hats and L-plates for good luck.
Before your big Saturday night out, indulge in a little retail therapy at Gateshead’s Metrocentre, the largest entertainment centre of its kind in the UK. As well as a huge array of high street and high end stores, there is a good selection of cafes and eateries to keep you refreshed during your mammoth retail therapy session.
Keeping things well and truly Geordie, book a table for the girls at Pan Haggerty. This restaurant offers a contemporary twist on traditional toon dishes, and although it is within the higher price bracket range the food is divine and well worth the splurge.
After a big night out on the town, the hen will definitely be in need of some pampering. Le Petite Spa situated within Malmaison Newcastle is a romantically relaxing venue, offering a good range of holistic treatments as well as the traditional massages and treatments.
Start getting the plans into action and browse online for bargain room rates on Travelodge hotels in Newcastle. Make this a weekend away with the girls that your hen will treasure forever, after all, she deserves nothing but the very best.
