When it comes to hen’s parties, there’s no hard and fast rule (we’ll leave that to the bedroom, right ladies?). They can be whatever you and the bride want them to be. The only rule is that she has the time of her single life.
Which means it’s OK to ditch the dick-fest. No, really.
If that’s the path you’re choosing to take, there are plenty of experiences and activities in Sydney and its surrounds she can share with her ladies to send her off in style.
1. High tea
Kitchen teas are so last century. High teas, now that’s where it’s at. It means the ladies can converse, munch on delectable delights and dress-up in period clothing if they wish - it makes for one beautiful send-off photo.
