Hen Parties are just the tip of the iceberg

Weddings are hard work; alright this may not be the most romantic sentiment in the world, but its true. It is also true that women get lumbered with most of the afore-mentioned hardwork and so definitely deserve the opportunity to de-stress and have fun with their friends before submerging themselves in a dress, flower, food, seating plan frenzy.

Perhaps this dawning realisation explains the increase in some serious hen-partying. No longer the poor relation to the more traditional stag-do, hen parties now come in all range of guises and are no longer confined to the local health spa.

Anything from go karts to weekends in Prague goes so for inspirational ideas and expert planning advice contact Eclipse Leisure - at least that's one part of the wedding taken care of for you!
