How Hens and Stags Prepare for the Big Day

Most people would think that brides usually spend more time and money getting all prepped up for their wedding day. That is no longer completely true. Though stags do not really have spa days lined up for their stag weekend, a survey shows that they do pay attention to their grooming well before the big day.

As preparing for the big day goes, a lot of hens would include a spa day in their hen weekend. This allows them to rest, relax, and get some beauty treatments done at the same time. Of course, the ritual hen night may still be there, but having a spa day as a hen party activity will ensure that a bride is at her best during her wedding day.

Stags and Spa Days Do Not Go Hand in Hand

The “Rise of the Metrosexual” is probably the main reason why a lot of stags now spend time in the salon, clinic, and spa before the big day.  Since the term was coined in the 1990s, a growing number of men have started to frequent the best shops, hairdressers, gyms, and clubs.

After the “Rise of the Metrosexual,” there was nothing girlie or gay about men who go to the hairdresser to sport the latest hairstyle or hair color. In addition, it is also became quite common for a lot of men to go with the latest fashion and even go shopping.

Though a growing number of men have a metrosexual lifestyle, it does not necessarily mean that all stags are actually metrosexual. Still, similar to how most women want to look perfect on their wedding day, there are men who make the effort to do the same.

A recent survey shows that lots of grooms get a haircut, professional shave, teeth whitening, fake tan, waxing, dance lessons, plastic surgery, plucked eyebrows, manicure/pedicure, and hair dye before their wedding day. As you might have noticed, the list is similar to that of brides.

Hen Party Activities and Bridal Preparations

In essence, brides should never be outshined by anyone… not even her groom. That is why lots of brides make it a point to get the necessary beauty treatments well before the wedding. This includes constant exfoliation, using sunscreen, and other skin care treatments.

To address those concerns, a lot of hens choose to include a spa day in their hen weekend or hen do. By spending a day at the spa, hens and their closest friends can rest, relax, and beautify themselves at the same time.

If that’s not enough… get a fashion consultant! With the help of a professional, you can spend the daytime shopping and having a complete makeover. This can be an additional daytime activity to make sure that you make the most out of your hen weekend or hen do. Of course, there are a lot of other hen party activities to enjoy.
