Brides Up North

Super Sunday!

Today I’m a plane ride away, celebrating my friend Lynsey’s last weekend of freedom in the sun.  Happy hen party honey!

.

I think that hen parties are such an important part of the whole wedding process.  It’s lovely to have a proper send off with your best girls (who have often been around in your life for longer than your other half).  From what I can remember (!) mine was such a fabulous affair – full of love, laughs and the odd L plate.  Girly friendships are so important.  Nurture them!

.

Grab another round of flirty martinis as I share some groovy hen party inspiration from around the blogosphere to share on the wedding blog this week. Party on!
